Each play (line) on a ticket is a separate entry into the next draw. Mega Millions is available with up to five (5) plays on each ticket, making it easy to maximize your chances of success.
Adding the Megaplier option to your ticket will let you increase the size of non-jackpot prizes by 2X, 3X, 4X, or even 5X. When included, the prizes will be multiplied by the value of the Megaplier ball drawn after the winning numbers. Megaplier will apply to all plays on a ticket and will increase the cost of each play by $1 when added.
Mega Millions can be enjoyed with a wager of just $2. A new wager is added for each additional play included on the ticket. The Megaplier option applies to the whole ticket and increases the wager by $1 per play.
Drawings are held on Tuesdays & Fridays at approximately 11:00pm EST. Lotto.com has a cutoff time of one hour before a draw to make sure your ticket is processed in time. If you purchase a ticket after the cutoff time, your ticket will be entered into the following draw.
The Mega Millions jackpot for matching all six (6) numbers including the Mega Ball starts at $20 Million. Each time a draw is held without a jackpot winner, the prize amount rolls into the next draw and continues to grow. The jackpot will continue to increase until a winner is found, with prizes often increasing to hundreds of millions of dollars. That’s a lot of zeroes!
