There were several winners in the last Mega Millions drawing, including a $5 million winner in Wyoming. Did you purchase a ticket for tonight’s Mega Millions drawing? Many people choose to play both Mega Millions and Powerball several times per week.

Mega Millions games are played every Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 p.m. ET, while Powerball is played every Wednesday and Saturday at 11:00 p.m. ET. Due to the frequency both games are played, many choose to play both drawings on a regular basis.
Mega Millions is easy to play and is affordable as tickets cost $1 per play. The megaplier option is an additional $1 and the game is played in 44 states, Washington, D.C. and the U.S. Virgin Islands. Those who are new to Mega Millions can find information about their local lottery from the official site. This is an excellent way to stay up-to-date with the game and keep track of the rules and regulations you must follow.
There are slight variations between some states regarding Mega Millions and it’s important to understand these in case you are one of the lucky jackpot winners. For example, some jackpot winners live in states where they must come forward and have their information made public, while others are allowed to remain anonymous. Some states may not offer the megaplier option while others will. Even the time your local retailer stops selling lottery tickets may differ from another state. In order to get the most out of your Mega Millions game, begin by visiting your local state lottery and reading through their rules of play.
