Colorado Lottery Mega Millions

The Colorado Lottery is 1 of 46 US District & State & Lotteries that offer the huge and popular Mega Millions game as part of its overall lottery portfolio – in this case the Colorado Mega Millions.

The Mega Millions is a Multi-State USA Lottery that is run and operated by the Mega Millions Consortium – who administer and syndicate the game across the USA and is one of the largest lottery games in the world – having produced a world record jackpot of an mind-boggling US$ 656 MILLION in March 2012. This massive amount was shared between 3 Mega Millions winning tickets from Illinois, Kansas and Maryland and ranks currently as the 2nd biggest jackpot ever to have been won in the history of jackpot lottery games anywhere in the world.

The very first Mega Millions draw took place on May 17th 2002 with 6 USA Lottery companies taking part who were all members of the Mega Millions Consortium.

The game had changed its name and format from the Big Game which had first started back on August 31st 1996. Upon this change – 2 further State Lottery companies joined and more would soon follow.

The CO Mega Millions was first sold on May 16th 2010 when the Multi State Lottery Association (MUSL) who run the Powerball game – of which the Colorado Lottery is a member – entered into a cross-selling agreement with the Mega Millions consortium – allowing the sales of Mega Millions in Powerball states and Powerball in Mega Millions states.

CO Mega Millions How it Works...

The Colorado Lottery Mega Millions works in exactly the same way as the Mega Millions game works in all the States and Districts in the US that offer the game.

Jackpots start off at US$ 15 MILLION and ROLLOVER after each draw when the top prize is not won – making for some enormous jackpot figures.

6 numbers are drawn in total for the Colorado Mega Millions from 2 separate drawing machines – firstly 5 numbers from 75 white balls are drawn and then 1 number (the MEGAball) from 15 gold balls.

Draws for the Colorado Lottery Mega Millions take place twice every week on Tuesdays and Fridays at 9.00pm MST (11.00pm EST).

In addition to the 6 Mega Millions numbers drawn – a further number is drawn – using a Random Number Generator…the Mega Millions MEGAPLIER number…

MEGAPLIER…

This separate MEGAPLIER prize multiplier number drawn will be either 2, 3, 4 or 5 – and is there to give players of the Mega Millions Colorado a chance to increase their winnings on all levels of the prize structure apart from the Colorado Lottery Mega Millions jackpot itself.

With MEGAPLIER – you are able to multiply your winnings on these levels by 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x – greatly increasing the amount you can walk away with.

If a player matches the 5 main Mega Millions numbers playing with the MEGAPLIER add-on – and a MEGAPLIER number of 5 is drawn – the second tier prize of US$ 1 MILLION would be multiplied by 5 and they would win US$ 5 MILLION.

CO Mega Millions How to Play...

The aim when you are playing is to correctly select as many of the Mega Millions winning prize numbers as possible – and with up to 9 different ways in which you can win on the Colorado Mega Millions – you have a great chance of winning a prize.

There are generally 4 ways you can play the CO Mega Millions


1. Pick 5 of your own main (white ball) numbers from 1 to 75 plus your 1 Mega Ball (gold ball) number from 1 to 15.

2. Pick 5 of your own main (white ball) numbers from 1 to 75 and use the Quick Pick option to let the computer choose your Mega Ball (gold ball) number for you from 1 to 15 – using a lotto number generator / random number generator.

3. Use the Quick Pick option to let the computer pick your 5 main (white ball) numbers from 1 to 75 using a random number generator – and then pick your own Mega Ball (gold ball) number from 1 to 15.

4. Use the Quick Pick option available to let the computer choose both your 5 main (white ball) numbers from 1 to 75 and also your 1 Mega Ball (gold ball) number from 1 to 15 using its random number generator.

MEGAPLIER…

For just an extra dollar – you can choose to increase your Colorado Mega Millions winnings on all levels except the jackpot – by adding the MEGAPLIER prize multiplier option when playing the CO Mega Millions.

If your chosen CO Mega Millions numbers match the Mega Millions winning numbers on any of these prize levels – you increase your winnings immediately by either 2, 3, 4 or 5 times – depending on what Mega Millions MEGAPLIER number was drawn.

If you play Mega Millions with MEGAPLIER and you are lucky enough to correctly select the 5 main Mega Millions numbers and a MEGAPLIER number of 5 is drawn – the second tier Mega Millions prize of US$ 1 MILLION will be multiplied by x5 and you will walk away with US$ 5 MILLION.

An enhancement to the MEGAPLIER option took place on October 19th 2013.

This will increase your winnings even further if you play Mega Millions using the
MEGAPLIER multiplier.

A Mega Millions MEGAPLIER multiplier of x5 was introduced meaning that your non-jackpot winnings can now be increased by up to 5 times.

This means - for example - that if you match ALL 5 of the main Mega Millions numbers and play using the MEGAPLIER feature – your Mega Millions 2nd prize
win of US$ 1 MILLION can now be increased up to US$ 5 MILLION.
