If you only hit the Mega Ball, you still get a prize! With the Megaplier, you will increase all non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, or 5 times. You need to have chosen this option by ticking the box when you buy your ticket to get the Megaplier and maximise your prize.

Top winner stories

Top winner stories

The Mega Millions lottery has made many winners along the years. Whether it surfaces in the media or not, each of them has a story. Some of these stories stand out for the good, some for the worse.

Stephen Cook's story is probably one of the most exciting ones. Why? Because he defied all lottery winner stats. He did not win the jackpot once, but twice! Back in November 2003, Mr. Cook was happy to find out he won a third of a $70 million Mega Millions jackpot. But, as he got to the Atlanta Lottery headquarters, he was surprised to find out his name featured two of the winning tickets. It turns out he forgot he had already bought a ticket and purchased another one, with the same numbers.

Record jackpot

The record jackpot in the Mega Millions is a whopping $1.53 billion, which makes it one of the best lotteries to play and win.  It came just shy of breaking the world record, which is still held by the US Powerball and its $1.56 billion jackpot of January 2016. The mouth-watering $1.53 billion was won by a single player from South Carolina on October 23rd, 2018. It took all the way to March 2019 for the world’s biggest winner to come forward and place a claim on this legendary prize. Everybody was dying to know who the winner was, but in the end, he or she decided to remain anonymous. Luckily, this was a simple process because South Carolina is one of the few states where lottery winners are not obligated to make their identities public.
