Best features of Mega Millions
The main attraction of Mega Millions is, of course, the size of the jackpots. The Mega Millions jackpot can never be lower than $40 million. Every time someone wins the jackpot, it starts anew from this minimum amount of $40 million. With two draws per week, the Mega Millions jackpot grows quite quickly. In the USA, millions of people play Mega Millions week after week, and lots of people from other countries like the UK play Mega Millions online as well.
So it is normal for the Mega Millions jackpot to grow by $10 million after each draw (unless someone wins the jackpot). That makes around $20 million per week since there are two draws per week.
And once the jackpot has grown past $100 million, even more tickets are sold both in lotto shops and to online players. On many occasions, the jackpot has reached amounts of $400 million and more. And from that point on, a weekly growth of $100 million is normal, due to exploding ticket sales. The current record jackpot stands at $1500 million (yes, $1,5 billion!).
How to check the Mega Millions results
If you live in the UK, or in any other country outside the US, then you will most likely not be able to get the winning numbers from your local radio or tv channels. You could visit the official website for Mega Millions, but there is one much easier solution for you. Just come back to our website and take a look at our results page. We publish the results for all the lotteries here. The winning numbers will be showing minutes after the draws have taken place.
We will also send you an email with a notification of the win – if you played online and have a ticket for Mega Millions in your account.
Also, you can verify your personal lottery results in your player account. Once you played Mega Millions online on our website, the ticket or tickets you played are stored in your account. And after the draw, you can go back there and immediately compare your Mega Millions ticket against the latest winning numbers.
You played Mega Millions online and won – what happens next?
If you won a larger prize, you need to send a message to our support team – although they will probably already have sent you a message with instructions on how to proceed. Next, you will have to complete a form provided by us. Our service team will send your form to the lottery commission. The form will also have information on your bank account or your physical address in the UK (or wherever you live), and your wishes as to the method of payment are also defined by you in that form. Within a few days, you will get your money in the way you selected for payment.
And if you win a smaller amount of money (of up to €2500, to be exact), the payout will happen even faster. This kind of win will be deposited in your player account right away – just check your player balance. Then you can decide whether you want to leave the funds there and use them to keep playing more lotteries (or Mega Millions) online, or you can initiate a withdrawal. For this withdrawal, you can use any method that was previously used to play online. Due to money laundering regulations, we will require some form of ID to verify your personal details. Our support will explain what we need for this verification process. Once we have those documents, it will only take a day or two to process the withdrawal and send you the money.Mega Millions online
