Mega Millions is the lottery that everybody is talking about this week.

The potentially life-altering draw will take place this Tuesday, February 17, 2015 at 11:00 pm Eastern Time.
Where to Buy Tickets
Buying lottery tickets has never been easier, and the reason for this is the widespread availability of online lottery tickets. As when purchasing anything over the internet, you should make sure you are buying from a reputable source. In this case, The Lotter and Lottery Master are two respected, secured and legitimate websites from which you can buy online lottery tickets. So not only will you have a chance to win Mega Millions' $88 million, but you can do so from the ease and comfort of your own computer or phone.
Mega Millions: How it Works
Mega Millions is drawn every Tuesday and Friday and 11:00 pm Eastern Time. Five balls are drawn from a set of 75 balls, and one ball is drawn from a set of 15 balls. To win the grand jackpot, you need all the numbers on one row of your ticket to match the numbers of the balls. If you don’t win the grand prize, you can still score some of the other giveaways, which range anywhere from $1-$1 million. The chances that your purchase of online lottery tickets will yield you some prize is only 1 in 15, certainly not a long shot for the $1 it costs per ticket.
For an extra buck, most states will allow you to add the Megaplier feature, which increases non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4 or 5 times. You can find out if your state allows this on both The Lotter and Lottery Master sites.
