What Is The Mega Millions?

Beginning in 1996 under the apt name “The Big Game”, what you now know as Mega Millions started humbly, with only a few states joining the game. Itgot its true start in 2002 when more states, including New York, joined the lottery, and from there the Mega Millions became a national obsession that has been expanding ever since. Now it’s played across 43 states in the US (as well as the US Virgin Islands and DC), with draws every Tuesday and Friday at 11pm EST.

Rules Of The Game

Mega Millions is a relatively simple game to learn. Players pick six numbers from two different pools of numbers. You pick five numbers between 1 and 70, and one Mega Ball number between 1 and 25. If you hit all six numbers you win the jackpot, which has been known to reach over 500 million dollars! If you match all your five white balls, but don’t hit your Mega Ball, you still win a whopping one million dollars. There are many smaller prizes to be won as well, depending on how many balls you match, so don’t kick yourself if you don’t win big. One of the great pleasures of playing Mega Millions is actually winning those smaller prizes – they can really add up!
