Do Good Deeds with Mega Millions Online Lotto

Published October 8, 2011 by OCR Editor

Lottery sales reinforce community spirit.

It's clear why the USA's Mega Millions lottery game has the country's most popular lottery jackpot, starting at a healthy $12 million and going up into the hundreds of millions. This multi-state lottery game can be played throughout the US and online, and pays out smaller prizes too, ranging from $2 to $250,000 dollars. So far, the highest jackpot was a whopping $390 million split between two winners, one in New Jersey and one in Georgia, back in 2007.

Supporting the Community

Like the smaller state lotto games, Mega Millions puts a significant part of its proceeds back into the community. Local state lotteries can sell Mega Millions lottery slips. These states then receive 35% of the money made on Mega Millions sales, which is put into funding and improving government services. The Illinois Lottery is just one state that has benefited greatly from the Mega Millions game...

Record Lotto Sales in Illinois

The Illinois Lottery has recorded its 9th year in a row of increasing lottery ticket sales, of which Mega Millions brought in $158.3 million. Thanks to contributions from Mega Millions and the revenue made on other games (Pick Three, Pick Four, Raffle, Megaplier and PowerPlay) Illinois Lottery made its biggest ever transfer of funding its own state schools and public services. Money also went to veterans groups and support organizations for those affected by breast cancer, HIV and multiple sclerosis - all within the state of Illinois.

Play Online

Tickets for Mega Millions and other international lotteries with major jackpots (EuroMillions, Powerball, SuperEna Lotto) can be bought online at sites such as Play USA Lotteries and Play Huge Lottos.
