Mega Millions jackpots start at $40 million. There are 9 ways to win and if you Megaply, you could win $5 million without even hitting the jackpot.

Mega Millions Play Slip
  1. Ask the store clerk for a Quick Pick (QP) ticket or fill out a play slip. Each play slip has five boards. Each board costs $2. Each board contains two sets of numbers: one set from 1 through 70 and the second set from 1 through 25.
  2. To play a board, pick five numbers from the set of 70 numbers, then pick one number (the Megaball®) from the set of 25 numbers. Fill in the circles for the numbers you wish to play. Do not use red ink and do not erase. If you make an error, mark the VOID circle, and then make selections on another board.
  3. You may purchase the same boards for up to 15 consecutive draws on one single ticket when you check the appropriate number of draws in the multi-draw box.
  4. You may select QP and have the computer randomly pick the numbers for you. Either mark the QP option on the play slip for up to five boards and your desired multi-draw option or ask the store clerk for a QP ticket for up to 10 boards and your desired multi-draw option
  5. To multiply any prize won up to five times* (except the jackpot), mark the Megaplier™ circle or tell the clerk you want the Megaplier option. This will add an additional $1 to the total cost of your wager on all boards played.
  6. Tickets cannot be cancelled after issued. You are responsible for the selection of your numbers and options, not the retailer or the Lottery.

NEW FEATURE – JUST THE JACKPOT

To play only for the jackpot prize, ask the clerk for a "Just the Jackpot" wager. You can pick your own numbers by telling the clerk to enter the numbers you want, or let the terminal pick them for you (QP). You will get two plays for $3. Each $3 play will give you a chance to win the jackpot, but no other prizes.

*The jackpot prize is not included in the Megaplier multiplier option.
