The USA Mega Lotto jackpot currently has a “Temporary” starting value of approximately AUD$25 Million (USD$20 Million, down from USD$40 million pre-Covid) due to Covid crowd reduction measures. To win division 1, players must match all five main numbers drawn from a pool of 70 and the Mega Ball, which is drawn from a separate pool of 25. If there are no winners, the jackpot will roll over to the next draw, and approximately at least AUD$10 Million will be added on top!

If you’re wondering whether to give it a go, just remember that there are two draws every week (Wednesdays and Saturday AEST) offering nine different prize divisions and the chances of winning any prize is a whopping 1 in 24!

For just AUD$3.45, you can also select the Multiplier feature, increasing the prize amounts for non-jackpot winners by up to 5 times! When you purchase an entry in our USA Mega Lotto, we will purchase a matching ticket in the US Mega Millions lottery conducted in the USA. This ticket will have the same lotto numbers as your USA Mega Lotto ticket. If the US Mega Millions ticket has any winnings, we’ll collect them. Then we’ll pass the same value of winnings directly to you.
