US Mega Millions – A Simple Explanation

Here at The Lottery Office we like to keep things simple. Big jackpots. Big winners. And lotteries that are super easy to play.

Let’s talk about US Mega Millions

It was in 2012 that US Mega Millions hit the news, announcing the world’s largest jackpot of more than AUD$970 million! Since then this lottery mega star has gone from strength to strength, and eventually set the record for the largest win on a single ticket, an unbelievable AUD$2.1 billion! 

The first division prize money starts at US$40 million (AUD$54 million), so…

if you win first prize, you’re guaranteed to walk away a multi-millionaire!

This popular US lottery has been around for more than 20 years and is considered one of the most trusted lotteries in the world.  

You can play to win from Australia 

Australians can play to win from the draws of US Mega Millions without leaving the country. There’s no need to jump on the next flight to L.A when you purchase a ticket in our USA Mega Lotto, we purchase a matching ticket in the US Mega Millions draws conducted in the United States. You don’t bet on an outcome, which is the case with some companies. You’ll receive a real ticket and you’re in with a chance to win a life-changing jackpot! 

The Lottery Office is fully licensed by the Northern Territory Government, so you can be sure we’re legit. If you win our lottery, we pay you the exact amount we collect from the matching US Mega Millions lottery ticket, charging no fees or commissions.

We’re audited on an ongoing basis, so you can be sure you’re getting what you paid for! 

How to play

It’s free to sign up for an account with The Lottery Office, and once you’re signed up you’re ready to play! All Australian residents (not SA residents) over the age of 18 years can purchase tickets.

Choose to play USA Mega Lotto, select how many games you’d like to play and you’re ready to choose your numbers.  Select 5 numbers between 1-70, and one number between 1-25. 

Maybe you have lucky numbers, or you like to choose them at random, you can set and forget and lock them in for up to 20 draws at a time!

We couldn’t make it any easier if we tried! 

How to collect your win

If you win under AUD$10,000, we’ll email you the good news and the money will be automatically credited to your Lottery Office account. However, if you win over AUD$10,000, we’ll call you on the phone number you provided and let you know in person, so we can take care of payment arrangements with you. We pay you the exact same amount for winning our USA Mega Lotto as the prize money we collect for winning with the matching US Mega Millions of lottery tickets. 

How do you increase your chances of winning a USA Mega Lotto jackpot?

  • Play more games! The more games you play, the more chances to win! 
  • Play more draws! US Mega Millions is drawn twice weekly! 

Also, you can win more money by choosing the multiplier feature for a measly $3.45 extra because this can bump up your non-jackpot wins by up to 5 times.

Now that we’ve given you a simple explanation of USA Mega Lotto which is played with the same Rules as the matching US Mega Millions you’re ready to play. SIGN UP for an account with The Lottery Office and PLAY NOW.
