Decoding Mega Millions Prizes: Your Guide To Winning Big

We all dream of scoring the big jackpot when we play our favorite lottery games like Mega Millions ®, Powerball ® or even when revealing our scratch tickets. While matching all of your lucky numbers is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, Mega Millions offers plenty of other prizes that range from some extra change in your pocket to making you a millionaire! 

Mega Millions draws twice a week on Tuesday and Friday at 11 pm est.

Mega Millions is played by picking five numbers between 1-70 and a Mega Ball between 1-25. If you match all five of your numbers and the Mega Ball you win the jackpot! Luckily you don’t need to hit the big one to win a prize, and matching as little as one number makes you a winner!

The odds of winning any prize with a Mega Millions ticket are 1 in 24. You can win Mega Millions’ smallest prize of $2 just by matching the Mega Ball. If you match one of your five lucky numbers and the Mega Ball you win $4. 

The next prize tier wins you $10 by matching three numbers on your ticket. This can come in the form of matching three of your five non-Mega Ball numbers, or matching two and the Mega Ball. 

Match more than three numbers? Your prize is getting bigger! You can win $200 by matching three of your five chosen numbers and the Mega Ball. If you match four of your five numbers you win $500. 

As a reminder, Lotto.com pays out all prizes under $600 (some states may vary) directly to your online account. You can use your winnings to make new orders on Lotto.com or you can seamlessly transfer your winnings to your payout method of choice. 

The next tier of prizes will be paid out directly by your state lottery if you win them. Not to worry! Lotto.com assists all big winners every step of the way with claiming their prize. 

If you match four of your five numbers and the Mega Ball you win $10,000! 

Matching all five of your numbers without the Mega Ball seems like it would be a bummer considering how close you were to winning the jackpot. Mega Millions eases this disappointment by paying out a prize of $1,000,000!

You can order Powerball, Mega Millions and many other favorite draw and scratch games and view lottery results online with Lotto.com! Lotto.com is currently available in Arkansas, Colorado, Minnesota, New York, New Jersey, Ohio, Oregon, and Texas. Scratch tickets are available in Colorado, Nebraska, Ohio, Oregon and Texas.
