How to Play the Mega Millions Lottery
Playing this lottery Online is real simple and just like playing other popular lotteries such as the Powerball Lottery. You can purchase as many tickets as you want to each Mega Millions draw. On each ticket you can pick your own numbers or you can select "Easy Pick" to have numbers auto-selected for your ticket. A Megamillions ticket will have 6 numbers including 5 numbers from one pool of numbers and 1 number from a second pool of numbers.
The first pool of numbers includes numbers from 1 – 56 and you need to choose 5 different numbers. The second pool of numbers includes numbers from 1 – 46 and you need to choose 1 number only from the 2nd pool of numbers. To win the Mega Millions Lottery you need to match all six numbers on your ticket. However, there are also multiple other prizes up for grabs for matching multiple numbers. If you match the number you pick from the 2nd pool of numbers on your ticket you automatically win.

If you win the Mega Millions jackpot you have two options. You can take one lump sum payment of all the money in the jackpot at the time you win or you can receive 26 yearly payments. The amount you receive per year is roughly $38.5K for every $1M in the jackpot before taxes. Most people that win the Mega Millions jackpot take one lump sum, as it's often more than most people can imagine winning in their lifetime.
The Mega Millions Lottery also offers a Megaplier feature that many players also play on each ticket. It costs an extra $1 to play the Megaplier feature on the Mega Millions Lottery, but it's worth it. If you win a regular prize it'll be multiplied by 2 – 4 times the regular prize payout. For instance, if you win $150 and you played the Megaplier you'd win anywhere from $300 – $600 depending upon what multiplier is drawn.
