With high jackpots, even those, who does not gamble, ready to try your luck. If you've never played the lottery before, here's what you need to know.

Mega Millions tickets cost 2 dollar and can be purchased in lotteries in 44 states. (Six states do not participate. excuse me, Alabama residents, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi, Nevada and Utah – you were unlucky.)

For each ticket, you will choose six numbers: five digits from 1 to 70 and one digit from 1 to 25 – Mega Ball. If you don't want to choose your own numbers, you can use the quick selection function, and your numbers will be chosen for you.

In some states, such as Texas and Wisconsin, you buy a ticket "Just Jackpot". This ticket costs 3 dollar, but gives you two games. The bottom line is, what do you win, only if you get all six winning numbers. This is different from the standard Mega Millions ticket, where are the players, which correspond to some, but not all numbers, are eligible for smaller prizes.

There is also a Megaplier option, which is available in most states. For additional $ 1 all winnings for the game, non-jackpot, will be multiplied.
