How to Play Mega Millions
Each play in the Mega Millions game costs $2. The Megaplier is an added feature.
There are nine ways to win a prize, ranging from $2 to the jackpot. Choose five numbers from 1 to 70 and one number from 1 to 25 for the Mega Ball.
If you choose Easy Pick or Quick Pick, the terminal will choose numbers at random for you. You win the jackpot if all six of the winning numbers in the drawing are the same as yours.
What’s the Megaplier?
Most states have a feature called “Megaplier,” which increases prizes that aren’t the jackpot by two, three, four, or five times.
It costs an extra $1 each time you play. The Megaplier is drawn before each regular Mega Millions drawing. Five of the 15 balls in a pool are marked “2X,” three are marked “4X,” and one is marked “5X.”
