The lottery's expected prize is $20 million. Roughly $9.5 million is the value of the cash option. When there is no winner, the jackpot increases for the next round.

The chances of winning the jackpot are 1 in 302,575,350, as stated on the game's official website.

Each player chooses six numbers (1–70 and 1–25) from two independent pools of numbers or uses the "Easy Pick" option. 

To win the jackpot, a player must correctly predict all six of the winning numbers.

Winners of the jackpot may choose to receive either a single lump sum payout or thirty yearly instalments, each of which is five percent more than the one before it.

On Tuesdays and Fridays, residents of 45 states plus DC and the US Virgin Islands may participate in the Mega Millions lottery. Each ticket is $2.
