Mega Millions Jackpot Rolls Over To $108 Million
April 27, 2016

The American Mega Millions lottery jackpot has rolled over, and when the next draw takes place on Tuesday 26th April, it will have risen to an estimated $108 million.

While the US Powerball lottery may have stolen the headlines recently with staggering jackpots of up to $1.6 billion, the US Mega Millions draw shouldn't be forgotten, especially as its jackpot now stands at an estimated $108 million. Like many of the biggest games in the world, this one is now open to all, thanks to online ticket services such as

Playing The Mega Millions

For $1 per line, players need to pick 5 main numbers from a possible 75, plus a single number from a pool of 15, or they can simply choose Easy Pick and have them randomly selected for them.

Prizes range from $1 for getting the single number, through to $1 million for the five main numbers, and the jackpot is won for matching all six. For an additional $1, a Megaplier option will multiply the value of any non-jackpot prizes by up to five times.

Certain states vary their payouts and prize structures, but the jackpot is the same across them all and can be taken as a lump sum or in annual instalments over 30 years. The amount paid each year increases by 5% to combat rises in the cost of living.

The drawings are held each Tuesday and Friday at 11pm EST in Atlanta Georgia.

Playing Online

Sites like Online-Lottery-Tickets give people from across the world the opportunity to enter lots of draws including the EuroMillions, Spanish El Gordo, Italian SuperEnaLotto and more.

Anyone living in a different timezone from EST needs to take into account the cut off time, with the UK for example being 5 hours ahead of Georgia.
