Georgia Mega Millions
Georgia Mega Millions began in 2002 and has since become very popular. The lottery has attracted attention from players around the country, plus national media due to past jackpots, which make it one of the largest lotteries by take-home amount.
From as low as $1 a play, Georgia Mega Millions tickets cost $2 per play as of February 2012. Players pick five numbers from 1 through 75 and an additional number from 1 through 15 known as the Megaball. Drawings are held on Tuesday and Friday nights at 11 p.m. Eastern Time.
The odds of winning the jackpot are 1 in 176 million, but there are other prizes to be won as well. Players can win $1 million by matching all six numbers drawn, while those who match five numbers and the Megaball can take home $10,000. Matching four numbers will get you a prize of $500, while three numbers plus the Megaball wins you $200. Finally, matching just the Megaball wins you $10.
For players looking to increase their chances of winning, they can choose to play Megaplier for an additional $1 per play. This multiplies any non-jackpot prize by two, three, four or five times.
Mega Millions’ starting jackpot is $40 million. Matching the five main numbers will win you $1 million.
