Incredible Facts About Mega Millions
Mega Millions is one of the most prestigious lotteries in the world. Here are some facts about this incredible game.
The First Draw Was In 2002
Despite its global renown, Mega Millions only hosted its first draw in May 2002. The jackpot winner was a single lucky person in Illinois, who scooped a prize of more than $28 million.
The Top Three Jackpots Total More Than $1.5Billion
While the first jackpot winner scooped a modest $28 million, players have since gone on to win far more impressive sums of money. In 2012, three lucky winners shared the largest prize ever - $656 million. In 2013, two winners shared the second-largest jackpot in the lottery’s history, more than $648 million. Then in 2018 a single winner won the largest ever individual prize of more than $1.537 billion!
Mega Millions, therefore, lives up to its name. The lottery provides players with access to sums of money that are not available through other lotteries worldwide.
How To Play Mega Millions In New Zealand
Playing Mega Millions with Lotto247 is easy.
The first step is to register with us. Once players create an account, they get access to lotteries from around the world, including Mega Millions.
The next step is for a player to add money to their account. Players need money in order to buy entries and to stand a chance to win the exciting jackpots. Our online service allows players to choose their payment method, giving them freedom and flexibility for where to source funds.
After that, players have to choose their numbers. Mega Millions works similarly to most major lotteries around the world. First, players must choose five numbers between 1 and 70. Players can choose any numbers that they like, but cannot select the same number twice.
Players must then choose the “Megaball.” The Megaball is an additional number in the Mega Millions draw between 1 and 25.
If a player in New Zealand doesn’t want to choose numbers manually, players can choose the quick pick option which will automatically pick numbers for them. Most players have a special list of numbers that they like to play with every week, but some prefer the wholly random approach to playing the game.
Once all the numbers are entered, and a player confirms, all that’s left to do is wait for the draw. Fingers crossed!
