How to Become a Mega Millions Millionaire!
The Mega Millions lotto (originally known as ‘The Big Game’ back when it was started in 1996) holds the world record for the largest jackpot. This record was set in 2012 when the grand prize reached a total of $656 million. The prize may be in American dollars, but the game itself can be played (and won!) by anyone in the world.
How to Become a Millionaire
Playing Mega Millions lottery is beyond simple. There are two separate pools of numbers in each draw; players need to select 5 numbers from the first pool and 1 number from the second pool. The numbers in the first pool range from 1 to 75; the numbers in the second pool range from 1 to 15.
That’s it! There’s nothing more to it. The only thing you need to decide is whether to choose the numbers yourself or to use the Quick Play option, which automatically generates a selection for you. Buy your online lottery ticket today and you’ll see how easy it is to play.
Everyone’s a Winner
While the ultimate purpose of playing the lottery is to win big, it’s not all about the jackpot. The Mega Millions lotto has 9 different prize tiers, starting with smaller cash prizes (for just matching the Mega Ball) all the way to the jackpot (matching the 5 white balls plus the red Mega ball), so there are plenty of opportunities to win.
Your chances of winning any prize are 1 in 14.7. If no one wins a Mega Millions draw, the that the prize money rolls over to the next one. Each time this happens, the jackpot increases by a minimum of $5 million. That’s some serious incentive!
Make Your Dreams a Reality
The Mega Millions lotto started off on a great foot – since its first ever draw, the USA Mega Millions has turned ordinary people into millionaires. The first draw in 2002 saw one lucky prize winner walk away with $28 million! Since then, every month sees new winners, and new dreams coming true.
The only question left is…
What Kind of Millionaire will YOU be?
Some people invest in property, go on lavish vacations, pay for their families’ education, donate to charity, or blow their money all in one go (we don’t advise doing that last one unless of course, you’re already a millionaire). Whatever your dream is, you can make it happen – it just takes one life-changing ticket.
