Mega Millions is a nationwide lottery played similar to the Powerball. Tonight’s Mega Millions is worth $203 million, or $132 million if you take the lump cash sum (before taxes.) If you want to know which Mega Millions numbers are most commonly picked, please see this story.
The chances of winning the Mega Millions jackpot is about 1 in 258 million, similar to the chances of winning the Powerball jackpot. Each time someone doesn’t win the whole thing, the jackpot grows for the next drawing.
How do you know if you won the Mega Millions jackpot? You’ll need to match five white balls in any order along with the Mega Ball. If you do win, make sure you know the deadline for claiming your prize. One Powerball winner still hasn’t claimed their prize, but the deadline is still far away. (Find out more about the Powerball deadlines here.)
There are other prizes you can win in Mega Millions too. If you match five white balls but not the mega ball, you can win $1 million. If you match four white balls and the mega ball, you can win $5,000. The prizes go down from there.
