About Mega Millions

MegaMillions Lottery

Mega Millions is one of the two largest lottery games in the USA.

Draws take place every Tuesday and Friday at 11pm EST in Atlanta, Georgia, and tickets cost $2 each.

You need to pick 5 correct numbers from 70, and one 'Mega Ball' number from 25 to win the jackpot.

Enter Mega Millions

For an extra $1, you can buy into the 'Megaplier', which will multiply your win by the Megaplier number (for non-jackpot only).

This lottery has one of the highest winning odds of any, but that means the jackpots can reach astronomical sums - often over $1 billion dollars.

Hot and Cold Mega Millions Numbers

Find out which numbers have been drawn the most (and the least) in the last 100 draws of the US Mega Millions lotto game.

This can help lottery players to pick their numbers by either riding a number on a hot streak (for example drawn 15 or more times in the last 100 draws), or picking numbers that have barely been drawn and therefore might be "due" (for example drawn only once in the last 100 draws).

As you can see from the list above, there are some huge jackpots available with Mega Millions.

Mega Millions Jackpot

Back in July 2002, Sonny Judson of Cliffside Park, New Jersey, became the sole winner of a huge $165M jackpot. That was the biggest jackpot until the following June when Bernadette Gietka took home a whopping $183M all to herself.

In 2005, a group of seven won the then-record $315 million jackpot, in Anaheim, California. 

Another most notably large payout took place in March 2012, as three winning tickets matched the jackpot numbers to share in a massive $656M. One ticket holder was in Kansas, another in Illinois and the third was in Maryland.

The daddy of all jackpots was won in 2018 though when Mega Millions fever gripped the US - and the World - with a jackpot of $1.537 BILLION. A single anonymous player in South Carolina won this.

The big jackpots keep coming for this big American lottery, so place your numbers now to have a chance!
