There is more than one way to win millions with the Mega Millions lottery. The additional game MegaPlier can be used to multiply winnings in eight out of nine winning classes in this famous lottery.

The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 302.6 million to one. That may appear to be impossible, but many Mega Millions jackpot winners will tell you otherwise. For example, in October 2018, a South Carolina resident won a record-breaking $1.537 billion prize.

With Mega Millions jackpots reaching such high values, the winners of the other prize categories seldom make news, despite the fact that the lesser tiers may also build up to some fairly substantial sums. By utilizing the MegaPlier, you may increase your chances of winning even more and becoming one of the headline winners.

Megaplier Provides Even More Opportunity

Of course most lottery players are hoping for that big jackpot win, but if you don't manage to match all five numbers plus the MegaBall, that doesn't mean that the dream of a huge win has to be over.

Mega Millions offers an excellent additional option; anyone who activates the MegaPlier on their ticket will be paid up to 5 times the amount of anything they manage to win. In addition to the regular Mega Millions winning numbers, there is a separate mini-draw to find the relevant MegaPlier factor, which will be a number between two and five. That MegaPlier number is multiplied by the prize you have managed to win on the main draw (excluding the jackpot).

Since the Mega Million rule changes came into effect in October 2017, it has become 30% easier to hit the $1 million second prize award. Assuming that you did get five numbers correct to win that prize, with the MegaPlier feature activated this amount would increase to between $2 million and $5 million!
