U.S. Mega Millions Jackpot Reaches $200M for Tuesday Draw

What would you do with $200 million? One way to find out.

The U.S. Mega Millions is one of the most popular lotteries in the world and it is also the one with the most players for each draw. This means that if nobody wins the main jackpot and it is rolled over for another draw, it will quickly reach an astonishing number. The perfect example is presented this week as the jackpot for the U.S. Mega Millions lottery is estimated to be an amazing $200,000,000.

Two draws will take place this week, with the first one being on Tuesday, October 21, and the second a few days later on Friday.

A Simple Ticket for a Life-changing Prize

The beauty of lotteries is that they are affordable to play and the prizes can easily change your life. When it comes to popular lotteries, this is even more spectacular as hundreds of millions can be won with a ticket which costs just a couple of dollars.

Online vendors, like The Lotter and Lottery Master, make everything simple as you just need to select the lottery you want to play from the list covering all the major ones, select the numbers for the tickets and just make the purchase on the internet. Online lottery tickets make the big games available beyond their regular borders and offer the chance to play to all potential winners.

Quick Playing Guide

The U.S. Mega Millions is based on two groups of numbers. In the first group, there are numbers from 1 to 75 and the player must select five of them. The second group has numbers from 1 to 15 and all online lottery tickets must have one number from this category, known as the Mega Ball.

When the draw takes place, 6 numbers in total will be selected from the two categories and the jackpot is won if all of them match the numbers on the ticket. Winners can also claim prizes for only getting some of the numbers, with 2-5 multiplier options to sweeten the deal.
