    how late can you buy mega millions tickets

    MEGA MILLIONS is a multi-state lottery game with a multi-million dollar prize that is available in 46 lottery jurisdictions. MEGA MILLIONS member lotteries all pay a portion of their sales to a pooled top-prize pool, allowing jackpots to reach hundreds of millions of dollars. The prize for this game begins at $20 million and continues to grow until all six numbers are matched. MEGA MILLIONS offers nine reward tiers, with lower-tier jackpots ranging from $2 to $1,000,000 – and with Megaplier®, up to $5,000,000.

    What exactly is a Megaplier?

    Most jurisdictions include a Megaplier® feature that allows players to multiply non-jackpot prize payouts by two, three, four, or five times. You may play the Megaplier for an additional $1 in a participating state. If you have bought the Megaplier function, each non-jackpot reward won on a Mega Millions® play will be multiplied by the Megaplier number picked. For example, if you win the $1 million second-tier reward in Mega Millions and the Megaplier number is 5, your payout would be a whooping $5 million if you paid an extra $1 for the Megaplier! Visit the lottery website in the state where you purchased the ticket to see if your state participates.
