Mega Millions , like Powerball, is a multistate lottery in the United States. Tickets can be purchased in all but six states, as well as Washington, DC and the Virgin Islands. Each Jackpot starts at $40 million and increases by $5 million for every drawing that does not produce a jackpot winner.
Mega Millions is a drawing that occurs twice each week and gives players the opportunity to win a jackpot or other cash prizes. Each ticket costs $2. Every jackpot starts at $40 million and grows until the jackpot is won. Any jackpot can be won by a single individual or by multiple people.

A basic ticket costs $2. Most states also offer a “Megaplier” option, where you pay $1 per ticket to multiply any prize you win (other than the jackpot) by two, three, four, or five. The value of the Megaplier is drawn at random at the same time that the winning numbers are generated.
How Do You Win the Mega Millions Lottery?
Each Tuesday and Friday night MEGA MILLIONS drawings are conducted, in which five out of 70 numbers (white balls) and a Mega Ball number between 1 and 25 (gold ball) will be drawn at random. There are nine ways to win prizes by matching the winning numbers drawn in the official drawing for the date played. Match all five numbers plus the Mega Ball to win the jackpot or match any of the non-jackpot-winning combinations to win other great cash prizes!
All MEGA MILLIONS prizes are set payouts, except the jackpot. The jackpot prize will be shared among all jackpot winning plays in all MEGA MILLIONS states. The jackpot will be paid in 30 graduated annual payments or a one-time cash payment of a reduced amount. If there is no jackpot winner, the money in the jackpot pool rolls over to the next drawing.
All prizes must be claimed in the state where the ticket was purchased. Prizes must be claimed within 180 days after the winning drawing date. Federal income taxes will be withheld from prizes as required by the Internal Revenue Code at the time payments are made. Any additional federal, state and/or local taxes shall be the responsibility of the winner. Prizes of up to $1 million may be claimed at a Florida Lottery district office. Prizes of more than $1 million must be claimed at Lottery Headquarters in Tallahassee.
