What Days Do Mega Millions Lottery Game Play?

Mega Millions lottery game is a multi-state game held every Tuesday and Friday. Tickets cost $2 per play and players may select five numbers from 1-70 and 1-25 for their Mega Ball selections. If you win the jackpot, your prize may either be paid out as cash or as an annuity (with payments spread out over 29 years). In order to qualify for the jackpot prize pool, all five white numbers and Mega Ball must match within one drawing; otherwise it rolls over into successive drawings until someone claims it!

If you wish to select your numbers manually, there are various methods available for doing so. Verbally communicating them to a retailer, completing a paper playslip or selecting digital play slip will all do it. Or let the computer choose for you by asking for Quick Pick at time of purchase – don’t forget you can also mark “multi-draw” box on playslip!

At each draw, five white balls numbered 1-70 and one gold Mega Ball (1-25) are drawn at random from a pot of numbers 1 through 70; nine chances to win ranging from the jackpot up to two dollars are offered; the chances of success being one out of 24.

Winners have sixty days from the drawing date to select how they would like their prize money distributed; cash winners can expect an initial payment equal to 50% of the advertised jackpot amount while annuity winners will see payments made monthly with final payments being due by 2029. Claiming prizes in their state of purchase is mandatory.
