For an additional $1 per play, add Megaplier to your purchase to multiply your winnings. Megaplier is not availble with Just the Jackpot wager. With every Mega Millions drawing, a Megaplier number from 2-5 will be drawn. If you have purchased Megaplier and you win with your Mega Millions numbers, your prize amount (excluding the jackpot**) will be multiplied by the Megaplier number drawn. Win up to $5 million** with Match 5 of 5 Megaplier prize!

*Jackpot Prize

The Jackpot Prize will be paid, at the election of the player, no later than 60 days after the player becomes entitled to the prize, with either a per winner annuity* or cash payment. The amount of the annuity and the amount of the cash payment will be determined according to the Game Rules.

The Jackpot Prize will be divided equally among all Jackpot Prize winning plays. All annuity prizes will be paid in thirty (30) graduated annual installments (increasing each year), with the initial payment being made in cash followed by twenty nine (29) annual installments funded by the annuity. If the cash value option is elected, the player will receive a single present value cash payment which will be less than the annuity amount.

In some cases, the annuity option may not be available. See Game Rules for complete details.

**The jackpot prize is excluded from Megaplier. Megaplier is not available with Just the Jackpot.

***In some cases, the prizes listed above, including the jackpot prize, may be paid on a pari-mutuel basis, and could be lower than published. See Game Rules for complete details.
