If you’re not lucky enough to win the jackpot, you can still win a prize of up to $1 million with the Megaplier feature. There are two ways to play the Megamillions lottery. You can choose your numbers yourself or purchase tickets at retail stores and use a Megaplier. The jackpot prize is worth $310 million. The other way to play is by purchasing a ticket with a Megaplier option. This feature increases your chances of winning non-jackpot prizes by one, two, three, or four times.
If you do win the jackpot, you can choose to receive payments in annual installments, rather than cash. You can choose to receive your payouts by credit card or by check.
