Rules of the Mega Million Lottery
Player select five numbers between 1 and 70, as well as an additional number from 1 to 25. To win the jackpot, all six numbers have to have been picked correctly. For five correct main numbers, the prize is $ 1 million.
The Mega Millions Jackpot
The Mega Millions Lotto is known for its rapidly increasing jackpots. This is because, on the one hand, hundreds of millions of tickets are sold week after week in the US. But the jackpot is often not cracked for weeks at a time. The jackpot always starts at at least $40 million. It usually starts slower, like $10-15 million per draw (there are two draws a week).
When nobody wins the top-tier prize, an amount of 100 million is reached quickly. Once that threshold has been crossed, more tickets than usual are sold. The jackpot begins to “explode”. Increases from 200 million to 500 million within a week are quite normal. And if the jackpot has not been won during 10 weeks, then it will even exceed the amount of 1 billion dollars. That last happened on 10/19/2018. The jackpot was finally won by a single winner on 10/23/2018, at which point its size was 1.6 billion.
Whenever the size of the jackpot is substantial, you would be wise to think about ordering your ticket in a way that it would participate in multiple consecutive draws. Make sure you’re in the game for the next, even higher jackpots as well.
It is important to mention that the jackpot winner can choose between two options. Either he chooses to receive the full amount in 30 annual payouts (with an annual 5% increase to adjust for inflation). Or he decides to receive an immediate one-time payment. The payout then is then lower than the full jackpot amount is.
Is this service legal for players from the UK?
This is 100% legal for players from all countries, including the UK. Basically, it’s like you were buying a ticket for Mega Millions during a stay in the US. Since in the US lottery tickets may be sold to anyone over 18, foreigners can legally win. Ultimately, all that matters is that you have your ticket. Moreover, we will also make sure that you get paid what you have won. For bigger winnings (more than $ 2500) you usually will get a check or a bank transfer.
Although, in case you should win the jackpot, you will have to travel to the US. There, your check will be handed to you in person. Surely you would be happy and excited to make that trip!
