HOW TO PLAY MEGA MILLIONS

Pick Your Number of Plays

Each playslip has five Play Areas (A–E) with boxes numbered 1–70 in the upper white Play Area and 1–25 in the lower shaded Play Area. You can play a single set of numbers (A) or up to five sets (A–E), with each play costing $2.00.

Pick Your Numbers

Choose any five numbers 1–70 and one MEGA BALL number 1–25 in each Play Area, or mark the Quick Pick (QP) box on your playslip to let the computer choose for you.

Play Multiple Drawings

Mark the appropriate Multi-Draw box to play your chosen numbers for up to 10 consecutive drawings (including the current drawing).

Add Megaplier

For an additional $1.00 per play, add Megaplier to your playslip. See below for details on how you could multiply your winnings by adding this feature.

Buy Your Ticket

Check your playslip carefully to make sure you have correctly marked each selection before presenting it to a Tennessee Lottery retailer. MEGA MILLIONS tickets cannot be canceled!

Check Your Winnings

There are many ways to find out if your ticket is a winner. The quickest and easiest way is to scan your ticket or check the winning numbers using the TN Lottery App.

How Megaplier Works

Before MEGA MILLIONS numbers are drawn, a Megaplier number (2–5) is randomly selected. If you win any non-jackpot prize with your ticket, your regular prize amount will be multiplied by the Megaplier number drawn. So if you've added Megaplier to your ticket, you match all five white balls and the Megaplier drawn is five, you win $5 million!

Adding Megaplier to your ticket is an additional $1.00 per play, totaling $3.00 per play. Example: If you fill in all five Play Areas (A–E) on the playslip, select Megaplier and choose three under Multi-Draw, your cost would be 5 (Play Areas) x $3.00 (plays with Megaplier) x 3 (number of draws) = $45.00.

Do not use red ink.
Sign the back of your ticket so no one but you can claim the prize. The playslip is not valid proof of a ticket purchase or numbers selected. You are responsible for the accuracy of your ticket.
