$16.5 million lotto ticket set

Iowa Lottery

Mega Millions® is the big jackpot game that's still just $1 to play!

How To Play

Mega Millions costs $1 per play; $2 with the Megaplier® option.

Choose 5 numbers from 1 - 75 then pick your Mega Ball number from 1 - 15.

Use a play slip to choose your own numbers or request an "easy pick" from the clerk and the lotto terminal will choose the numbers for you. Play more than one drawing by marking the "multi-draw" box on the play slip for 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 consecutive drawings.

Drawings are held at 10:00 p.m. Tuesdays and Fridays. Tickets may be purchased until 8:59 p.m. on the evening of the drawing.

The jackpot begins at $15 million and grows until it's won.

Win the jackpot by matching all 5 white ball numbers and the Mega Ball®. There are nine ways to win, so be sure to check your ticket after each drawing.

Mega Millions prizes must be claimed within 365 days of the drawing for which they were eligible.

Megaplier Option

Ask for the Megaplier with your Mega Millions purchase!

For an extra $1 Megaplier purchase you could multiply your prize from 2 to 5 times (except the jackpot). And if you match 5 white ball numbers (regularly a $1 million prize), you could win up to $5 million**!

The Megaplier is chosen randomly at drawing time. How much a player's prize is multiplied is determined by the Megaplier.
