About Mega Millions
It’s called Mega Millions, but you might as well call it Mega Billions…
And why not? The Mega Millions Jackpot winners of October 23, 2018 walked away with a cool $1.5 billion check after all!
Mega Millions is a major, major lottery, one of the biggest in the world. Only the USA Powerball comes anywhere close in terms of size of prize money and sheer popularity.
Hundreds of millions of people across the United States and the rest of the world participate in every MegaMillions draw. Only a few are lucky enough to win the big prize – which could be anywhere from $50 million to well over $1 billion.
Read on to find out more about this famous American lottery and how you can be a part of the Mega Millions Jackpot.
What You Should Know About Mega Millions
Mega Millions is very similar to Powerball, the other famous US lottery. Like Powerball, it is a multi-state lottery played in 44 states across the United States.
Any resident of the United States can buy Mega Millions tickets from any of the nearby kiosks or 7/11s. What if you’re from outside the United States, from Greece, India or China?
Well, then it becomes slightly more complicated. But lottery sites such as onlinelottery247.com have a found a solution to that. Scroll down for the details on this.
Every Mega Millions jackpot – much like Powerball jackpot – starts at $40. Unless someone wins it, the money gets added on to every subsequent draw. Finally, it could amount to something seriously big – let’s say $1.5 billion or more.
When that happens, the interest in the lottery really intensifies and it becomes the talk of the nation.
It is easy to forget that this lottery had very humble origins. Not a lot of people know that it was called as the Big Game when first launched in 1996. There were just 6 states that participated in this lottery then.
It was only in 2002 that people actually started taking this lottery seriously. Thanks to the higher cash payouts and an option to choose between annuity payments and cash payouts.
And yes, thanks to the Mega Millions jackpot of $656 million in March 2012. That was when everyone started noticing this lottery.
Since then the Mega Millions jackpots have become bigger and bigger, hitting $1.5 billion recently.
The second-tier prizes are pretty decent as well – You can win as much as $1 million (or more if you use the Megaplier option) even if you don’t win the jackpot itself.
The good thing is the tickets are priced at $2 only, which makes them very affordable indeed. Just think what the ROI (return on investment) would be if your $2 ticket wins you a Mega Millions jackpot of $1 billion!
But here’s the problem which we hinted at earlier…
What About Those Who Stay Outside the United States? How Can They Participate in Mega Millions? Is It Even Legal for Foreigners to Play Mega Millions Online?
Now, this is a grey area – there is no straight “yes” or “no” answer to this. Yes, it is true that Mega Millions is meant for residents of the United States only.
But even as a non-resident, or someone from outside the United States, you can participate in the Mega Millions draw.
How? Just buy a Mega Millions lottery ticket online through lottery sites such as onlinelottery247.com.
Here’s How It Works…
So, when you buy a lottery ticket on onlinelottery247.com, one of the USA-based lottery agents that we have partnered with, will buy a matching physical ticket on your behalf.

How to Play Mega Millions?
It’s pretty simple really. Just follow the instructions below.
Step #1: Set up an account on onlinelottery247.com. Real easy and takes a minute or two of your time. We respect your privacy and will not ask for any information unless that is absolutely essential.
Step #2: Go to the Mega Millions page.
Step #3: Buy a ticket. Buy two, maybe, or even three. As many as you like. After all, a Mega Millions ticket costs only $2. The more tickets you buy better your odds of winning something. It’s just elementary math.
Step #4: Choose any 5 numbers between 1 and 70 and one additional number between 1 and 25, called the “Mega Ball”. If you’re not sure about what to choose, opt for a random number generator called “Quick Pay”. That chooses the numbers for you.
Step #5: What if you want more shots at the jackpot itself? Go for the "Just the Jackpot" Mega Millions ticket. Costs $3 only and gives you two shots at the jackpot.
Now wait. Wait for the Mega Millions Draw.
Mega Millions draws are held every Tuesday and Friday at 11 pm Eastern Time. 5 White Balls and 1 Gold Mega Ball are drawn. If the numbers match those on your ticket exactly, then you are the lucky winner of the Mega Millions jackpot.
Even if not all the numbers match, but some do, you can win any of the second-tier prizes or consolation prizes that range from just $4 to $2 million.
Here’s a disclaimer though – Your odds of winning the Mega Millions Jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350.
That’s the bad news. The good news is everyone out there has the same odds as you do. So, it is literally anybody’s game. The winner, as they say, takes all. And that’s how the cookie crumbles.
So, don’t worry about it, play Mega Millions Now. You may or may not win anything, but you will certainly have fun and have something to talk about with your friends and co-workers!
