Did you know that the internationally famous Mega Millions Lottery was originally called ‘The Big Game’? Although we can’t really imagine it not being called the Mega Millions, ‘The Big Game’ is certainly fitting. In fact, it could get away with being called ‘The Biggest Game’, with its impressive record-breaking $656 million jackpot that was won in 2012.
Not an American citizen? No problem! The fantastic thing about playing the lottery online is that you can do it from anywhere, and don’t need a specific passport to enter! The Mega Millions lotto is hugely popular worldwide, and really easy to play (no previous experience required – not even slightly!).
How to Play Mega Millions
Mega Millions is a straight-forward game. Before selecting your numbers, the first step is selecting the date of the draw you want to enter. That means you have the option of entering a draw next week, a few weeks from now, or can enter each consecutive week, or just pick a selection of dates you want to enter – whatever you want! The drop-down menu clearly indicates the dates of the draws, so there’s no way to enter an option that doesn’t exist.
The next step is deciding if you want to use the ‘quick pick’ option (and have your numbers randomly and automatically generated) or if you want to manually select your numbers. If you manually select your numbers, it’s really easy to correct your choice if you make mistake. Pens and pencils are a thing of the past – no more pesky erasures and ink splotches!
So how does it work, exactly? Each Mega Millions draw has two separate pools of numbers. You need to select 5 numbers from the first pool (ranging from 1 to 75), and 1 from the second pool (ranging from 1 to 15). That’s it! Now you’re officially a Mega Millions pro!
