Mega Millions drawings are held twice a week on Tuesday and Friday nights. Currently, forty-two states offer the Mega Millions game in addition to holding state lottery drawings each week. For those of us out there looking for the big jackpot, Mega Millions is the go-to choice.
The game’s principle is simple: Five winning balls are drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 56; then one ball is drawn from a set of balls numbered 1 through 46 (The Mega ball). You win if your numbers match the balls drawn on that date. If no one wins, more money is added to the total jackpot for the next drawing.
While it’s not easy to win the jackpot, there are nine ways to win a prize of some dollar amount ranging from $2 all the way up to the jackpot. Overall, your chance of winning is 1 in 40. Chances of winning the jackpot? A laughable 1 in 175,711,536! Check it out HERE.
For all of you out there that never play the lottery, this might be one of those times where it makes sense to grab a few tickets next time you’re out. $237 million is not pocket change! As the saying goes, you gotta be in it to win it!
