US Mega Millions Review

Mega Millions is a fantastic lottery game that keeps a record for some of the highest jackpots ever handed out. Sounds exciting and it indeed is! Here’s a bit more you should know if you’re interested in getting started with Mega Millions.

Launched on August 31, 1996, and was nicknamed the Big Game. Mega Millions had its first drawing on September 6, 1996, with six states engaging: Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, and Virginia.

Following a thrilling expansion of Mega Millions in 1997, an additional Thursday drawing started taking place in February 1998. Participants received a bigger selection of numbers, plus a “cash payout” alternative in January 1999. In May 1999, New Jersey had become the 7th associate state.

What are the Mega Millions hot triplets?

In May 2002, the multistate game was presented with the new brand of “Mega Millions.” New York and Ohio became the new member states and the lottery matrix as well as winning prize volumes had been improved to provide people with even more significant incentives to play. All of these changes boosted the popularity of Mega Millions even further, turning it into one of the country’s favorite lotteries.

As of March 6, 2007, Mega Millions once again reached an amazing milestone by having a jackpot of $390,000,000 – it was the biggest jackpot in North America at the time.

The largest jackpot in Mega Millions history was worth an estimated $1.58 billion, and it was won by a single ticket sold in Florida on Tuesday, August 8, 2023. This jackpot surpassed the previous record of $1.537 billion, which was won by a single ticket in South Carolina in 2018.

Currently, Mega Millions is available in 46 US states and jurisdictions. The game is also available for international players to try because of the online ticket purchasing opportunities provided by lottery agents.

LotteryPros.com drives players to buy tickets for American lotteries such as the USA Mega Millions Lottery which is one of the biggest lotteries around the world, giving people from all around the world the chance to become millionaires.

US Mega Millions Rules

The Mega Millions rules are very simple and straightforward. To play, you have to choose 5 main numbers from a pool in the range from 1 to 70. To win the jackpot, a player will also need to pick a Mega Millions number in the range from 1 to 25. A correct combination of all 6 numbers will produce a jackpot-winning ticket.

Players can either choose their own numbers that they always submit or they can opt for a quick pick ticket. In the second instance, the numbers will be assigned randomly.

Each line costs 2 dollars, which turns Mega Millions into one of the world’s most affordable lotteries that feature massive jackpots.

An additional feature is also available. It’s called MegaPlier and it costs an additional dollar to activate. To use the MegaPlier, players have to pick an additional number. This additional number can increase non-jackpot prizes by multiplying them. The multiplication ranges from x2 to x5. The x5 MegaPlier was introduced in October 2013. Thus, when this opportunity is activated, a second prize of one million dollars can easily become 5 million dollars! And all of that – for an additional payment of 1 dollar!

USA Mega Millions Prize Breakdown

In addition to the jaw-dropping Mega Millions lottery jackpot, you can win other prizes ranging from $2 to $1,000,000. Mega Millions is a game that has a minimum guaranteed jackpot of 40 million dollars. If the sum isn’t won, it will roll over to the next drawing by a minimum of $5 million. This is how Mega Millions gets to generate some of the most spectacular jackpots across the globe.

The biggest ever Mega Millions jackpot came down at the end of March 2012. It was valued at 656 million dollars and there were three lucky tickets that split the prize. The second-largest Mega Millions jackpot was won in December 2013. It was 648 million dollars and the sum was split between two lucky ticket owners from California and Georgia.

The second prize tier is one million dollars and the third prize tier – 10,000 dollars.

Apart from the standard prizes, Mega Millions has a wonderful MegaPlier feature. The MegaPlier is an additional number that the player chooses. It makes the ticket a little bit more expensive, but it also has the power to increase non-jackpot prizes significantly.

The MegaPlier feature was introduced in 2013, it costs an additional dollar and it can multiply the prize by x2 to x5. MegaPliers are only available in some of the states where Mega Millions is legally played. The lottery’s website provides more information.

The final important thing to know about the Mega Millions prizes is that they’re paid in the form of either a lump sum or an annuity payment. In the case of lump-sum payments, taxes will be applied immediately. This rule reduces the amount that the winner will receive.
