How to Play Mega Million Jackpot.

To play Mega Millions, players must choose six numbers from two pools of numbers: five numbers are chosen from a pool of 1 to 70, and one number, called the Mega Ball, is chosen from a pool of 1 to 25. Players can choose their own numbers or have the lottery machine generate a random “Easy Pick” or “Quick Pick” for them. The cost to play is $2 per ticket. Players also have the option to add the Megaplier, which increases the amount of their potential prize up to five times, for an additional $1.

The odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are 1 in 302.6 million. While the chances of winning may be slim, the jackpot has attracted attention and excitement across the country. “As the jackpot grows, we encourage our players to keep within their entertainment budget and enjoy this jackpot run right along with us,” said Pat McDonald, Ohio lottery director and lead director of the Mega Millions Consortium.

In How many States Mega Million Jackpot Played.

Mega Millions can be played in 45 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Five states — Hawaii, Nevada, Alabama, Alaska, and Utah — do not offer Mega Millions.

The next drawing will take place on Tuesday, and players are hoping to be the lucky winners of this historic prize.
