game play

  • Choose your own numbers on a playslip. Pick five different numbers from 1 through 70; then select one Mega Ball number from 1 through 25.
  • You can also play Easy Pick and let the computer choose your numbers.
  • Use a combination of these play methods - pick some of your favorite numbers and let the computer fill in the rest.
  • Each ticket costs $2.
  • Mega Millions draws are held Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 p.m.
  • All prizes, except the jackpot, are fixed dollar amounts. The jackpot total is dependent on the amount of money in the draw's prize pool.


Match all six numbers, and you win the Mega Millions Jackpot! But that's not all - check out the chart for all NINE ways to win a prize in Mega Millions. If you do win the jackpot, you will need to choose either an annual payout or cash option when you claim your prize.

just the jackpot

Want to play Mega Millions just for the jackpot prize, then the new Just the Jackpot feature is just for you!

  • Just the Jackpot costs $3 for two Easy Pick plays that are eligible only for the jackpot prize.
  • Just the Jackpot plays are for the upcoming draw unless you select the Optional Plays box on a playslip or let a store clerk know the date you have in mind.
  • Just the Jackpot plays print separately from regular Mega Millions plays, so keep that in mind if you buy a combination of plays.

bigger game with megaplier

Step up your game with Megaplier, a great add-on feature that multiplies a non-jackpot prize by 2, 3, 4, or 5! Megaplier can increase your winnings up to $5,000,000! Add Megaplier to any Mega Millions ticket for $1 per play. The Megaplier number is randomly drawn before each Mega Millions draw show - so it won't appear on your ticket when you buy it.

play options

It's always great to have options, so mark the OPTIONAL PLAYS box on your playslip for any of the following:

  • Want to play the same numbers for more than one draw on a single ticket? Well, you can! A MULTI-DRAW ticket lets you play up to 26 consecutive draws on one ticket. Please keep in mind that the ticket price increases for each draw you add.
  • Thinking ahead to a special date? You can buy one ticket for a future draw date. It's called a FUTURE draw. Simply mark the OPTIONAL PLAYS box on your playslip and let the store clerk know which future draw date you have in mind.
  • Love those numbers so much you want them on more than one ticket? You can REPEAT your play and have the same numbers printed on more than one ticket up to 20 times.
  • Simply tell your store clerk which option you want when you present your playslip. Keep in mind that playing in more than one draw increases the ticket price by the number of draws you choose.

two chances to win per week

Mega Millions draws are held Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 p.m. Here are a few things to keep in mind when you play Mega Millions:

  • We stop selling Mega Millions tickets at 10:45 p.m. on draw nights - so get your tickets early!
  • Virginia's Mega Millions tickets cannot be canceled and all sales are final…sorry! We recommend using a playslip to ensure that your numbers are correct.
