How to play Mega Millions?

Mega Millions draws take place every Tuesday and Friday at 11 p.m. The cost is $2 per ticket, but you can add the Megaplier for $1, which will increase your potential prize amount up to five times the original prize (excluding the jackpot).

Each player selects five numbers from 1 to 70 for the white balls and one number from 1 to 25 for the Mega Ball. However, you can also have the lottery machine generate a random Quick Pick for you.

Prizes range from $2 for the Mega Ball match to $1 million for the five white ball match (except in California) to the jackpot for the six ball match. You can check all prize payouts on the Mega Millions site here.

You do not need to be a US citizen or a resident of a particular state where you purchase your ticket.
