Mega Millions is a traditional draw-based lottery game that is offered in 47 jurisdictions across the USA. Thanks to the vast number of players in each draw, the jackpots can regularly and quickly climb into the hundreds of millions – something that many lotteries around the world are not able to offer.
The Mega Millions matrix is 5/70 + 1/25. The first machine draws five main balls from a pool of 1-70. A second machine then draws a Mega Ball number from 1-25. Combined, the six numbers drawn are the Mega Millions winning numbers.
Draws take place every Tuesday and Friday night at 11:00pm Eastern Time (around 5:00am on Wednesday and Saturday morning under South African time).
Megaplier is an option that players in the USA can utilise when purchasing their tickets. For an extra fee, opting into the Megaplier means that non-jackpot winnings can be multiplied by 2, 3, 4 or 5 times, depending on the multiplier number drawn. Please note, those betting on Mega Millions online from South Africa and other countries are not able to opt into the Megaplier.
Placing a bet on Mega Millions from South Africa is straight-forward and only takes a few minutes the first time around.
By betting online through a trusted website such as LotteryWorld, you know you’re in safe hands. LotteryWorld is a regulated and authorised lottery betting website that allows lottery players around the world to bet on international games as though they were in that country purchasing an actual ticket.
The betting model means that you need to pick the same amount of numbers that you would if you were playing in the USA, five main numbers and one Mega Ball number. You can also opt for a Quick Pick if you struggle to decide which numbers to choose.
Prizes are also paid out in the same way that they would be if you had a physical lottery ticket; the prize amounts are matched with the main game, and non-jackpot winnings are not shared.
If you’re lucky enough to win a prize, your winnings will be paid into your online account shortly after the draw. You can then withdraw them or use them for future purchases.
