Mega Millions® is an exciting multi-state jackpot game that more than lives up to its name. That’s because the jackpot begins at $40 million and then has the chance to grow even larger from there if no one matches the five white balls and one gold Mega Ball. Drawings occur every Tuesday and Friday night. Mega Millions tickets cost $2 per game. Mega Millions tickets with Megaplier® cost $3 per game.
