The very popular and well-respected US Mega Millions game is a multi-state lottery based in the United States of America, and is a multi-jurisdictional lottery game. It is played in 43 states in the USA, as well as the District of Columbia as well as the US Virgin Islands – not to mention globally, thanks to the increase in popularity of online ticket purchasing vendors! This lottery game has also earned its right in the record books; with the biggest jackpot ever given away by the game weighing in at $656,000,000 it has certainly established itself and set itself apart as one of the true lottery giants in a saturated industry. It is also one of the (very few) international lotteries whom offers its payouts in either a once-off cash lump sum (usually less than the advertised jackpot amount, depending largely on the prize pool at the time of the draw), or annuity payments over a span of 30 years.
The game itself is a pretty straightforward process; no need for complication here! The player is required to make a selection of five numbers from a ball pool range of 1-75 (the main numbers), as well as an additional number from a ball pool range of 1-15 (the Mega Ball). In order to qualify for a lottery jackpot win, your number selection needs to correctly match the number selection drawn at complete random by the lottery draw machines. Even if you have a combination of the drawn numbers (e.g three main, as well as the Mega Ball) it would be advisable to check the lottery results posts we provide on this webpage – who knows, perhaps you could be a winner!
The US Mega Millions lottery game gets drawn bi-weekly; every Tuesday and Friday at 23h00 ET. Should you miss the draw, a full breakdown of the results will always be available right here on lottoonline1.com. Good luck, player!
