As the Mega Millions jackpot continues to roll, more people are playing the lottery and sharing their dreams of striking it rich. Social media networks are continually seeing activity from those playing Mega Millions and Powerball, the two most popular lottery games, sharing their wishes to strike it rich. Those who play Mega Millions need to ensure they take care of their tickets as several state lottery associations have released information that many winners are not coming forward to claim their prizes.

When you buy a Mega Millions ticket, make sure to sign the back of it immediately and then store it in a safe place. It doesn’t matter if you purchased the ticket 2 hours before the drawing or 2 days prior, keep your ticket safe and protected so that you can check and double check the winning numbers with the numbers on your ticket. If you don’t win the Mega Millions jackpot, don’t throw your ticket away hastily as you may have won another prize. There are nine ways to win at Mega Millions and the second-tier prize, that consists of matching all five white balls is a $1,000,000 win. The third-tier prize consists of matching four white balls and the Mega Ball. This prize is worth $5,000. Those who play Mega Millions have the option to add a megaplier that will multiply the winning amount. Mega Millions megapliers are drawn at the time of the live drawing and are in amounts of 2x, 3x 4x and 5x.
Unlike Powerball that only multiplies the match 5 prize to $2 million, Mega Millions increases the second-tier prize in increments of 1. For example, if you choose a 2x megaplier and win the match five, you’ll win $2 million. A 3x megaplier will multiply your $1 million into $3 million. Likewise, a 5x megaplier will multiply your match 5 win from $1 to $5 million. The amount for other prizes are multiplied by the megaplier. The third-tier prize of match four plus the Mega Ball is multiplied according to the megaplier. A 2x megaplier applied to the match four plus the Mega Ball turns $5,000 into $10,000 and a 5x megaplier turns it from $5,000 to $25,000.
