Megabucks Doubler Review

Megabucks Doubler Review

Megabucks Doubler is a lottery game offered by the Massachusetts State Lottery with a starting jackpot of $500,000 and drawn two times in a week. The players are to pick 6 out of the 49 numbers and if the picked numbers match all or some of those selected in the next drawing then the player wins a prize. The drawings are usually held on Wednesdays and Saturdays at 11.20 p.m. and all betting pools open from 5 a.m. to 10.45 p.m.

How to Play?

To play Megabucks Doubler, you fill out a bet slip by picking 6 winning numbers from a pool of 1 to 49. In the event you do not want to manually pick the numbers, then a Quick Pick can serve you well. This is where you allow a computer to generate random numbers for you based on its internal algorithm. Just like in manual picking, there is no 100% guarantee that the numbers picked will win you a prize, but it is a good way of spreading your risk particularly if you have been manually picking for long without luck.

Once you fill out the bet slip, you should return it to the lottery sales agent, who will then give you a separate ticket which is your receipt giving you entry into the game. It is always important that you check your ticket well to ensure it represents the numbers you wanted and the specific drawings you have purposed to play. For safety purposes, you should sign your ticket at the back because it is a bearer document and whoever picks it may present it to claim a prize.

Megabucks Doubler Feature

As of May 2nd, 2009, one in every ten Megabucks tickets automatically qualifies to be included in the Megabucks Doubler feature. To know whether your ticket is a doubler or non-doubler, check out for the words “this is a doubler ticket” which will appear towards the bottom of the ticket after the ticket price. If the ticket you have is a doubler ticket and you happen to win a non-jackpot prize, the prize will be doubled.

Season Ticket Doubler

After each Megabucks Doubler drawing, the Massachusetts Lottery randomly draws and posts on its website a season ticket doubler number abbreviated as ST Doubler which ranges from 0 through to 9. This number corresponds to the last digit of the control number of the Megabucks Season Ticket. For each drawing, the Megabucks Season Ticket control number remains constant. Both the randomly drawn ST Doubler and the winning number for every drawing will be posted on the lottery’s website as well as recorded at 781-848-7755. If the last digit of the control number indicated on your season ticket matches the ST Doubler and your ticket has won a non-jackpot prize, the prize will be doubled.

The cost of playing Megabucks Doubler is $1 per play and you can purchase your tickets for up to 104 drawings in advance.

Megabucks Doubler Rules

Megabucks Doubler is guided by a set of rules that ensure fairness and order in the lottery game. The rules include:

1. Placing a Megabucks Doubler bet is interpreted as an express agreement by the bettor to abide by the Massachusetts State Lottery Commission Rules and Regulations. As a bettor, you can contact the Lottery Commission if you want to inspect the applicable rules prior to playing.

2. Whatever bet you place, it is not considered effective until it is accepted by the online computer processing system in accordance to the lottery rules and prior to the drawing of the winning number. The bettors acknowledge that the online lottery sales agents are simply acting on their behalf in placing bets into the online computer processing system. If the bets are not accepted by the online computer processing system, the liability of the lottery and the online sales agent, whether arising out of negligence, breach of contract or otherwise indicated, is limited to a refund of the amount wagered. This also applies if the bet slips are entered incorrectly into the system, marked incorrectly or otherwise invalid. The bettors should consider placing of Megabucks Doubler bets their own risk.

3. The jackpot prize fluctuates depending on the winning frequency, the amount of money wagered in each drawing as well as the amount of lower level prizes won. In any drawing, the minimum jackpot level would be $500,000. In case the jackpot is not won in a given drawing, the amount which would have been paid is taken into the next drawing’s prize pool, thus making the jackpot grow from one drawing to the next until it is won. In the event of multiple jackpot winners, the prize will be divided equally amongst all of them.

4. Jackpot winners have up to 60 days from the day after the drawing to select their preferred payment option. There are two main jackpot payment options with the first being annuity option and the second a cash option. The annuity option gives the winners an opportunity to choose equal annual payments over a period of 20 years. The cash option entitles winner to a one-time cash payment which is simply the allocated jackpot amount. In the event a winner fails to select the payment option within the 60-day duration, the prize won will automatically be paid as an annuity.

5. Of the amount of money wagered on each drawing, about 55% of it goes into the prize pool.

6. In the event the total prizes won in any given drawing exceed the net sales for that particular drawing, the prize amounts will be distributed based on a formula detailed in the Administrative Bulletins issued or in the Rules and Regulations.

7. All the cash prizes won must be claimed within one year after the draw date.
