How to play US Mega Millions

  • Select 5 numbers between 1 and 70, and 1 number between 1 and 25.
  • You can multiply a non-jackpot win by up to 5 times if you choose the ‘multiplier’ option for an extra $3.45 per game.
  • Then decide how many draws you’d like to use your numbers for.
  • In a rush? Choose a ‘quick play’ for fast checkout.

Don’t forget, there are two draws of our lottery every week the same as with US Mega Millions, and nine prize divisions, giving you extra chances to win!
