Right from when the first DC Lotto ticket was sold back on August 25th 1982 – the aim of the Washington DC Lottery was to provide financial benefits for the people of the District of Columbia through the sale of Lottery DC products – at the same time as providing exciting lottery games that offer affordable entertainment and value to its players.

Things are the same today – with all monies raised from the sale of DC Lottery games going to the District’s General Fund – with education, recreation and parks, public safety, housing plus senior and child services being just some of the areas to benefit.

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 started on August 31st 1996. Upon this change – 2 further State Lottery companies joined and more were to follow.

DC Mega Millions Overview

The Washington DC Lottery is 1 of 46 US State Lotteries & District Lotteries that offer the highly popular Mega Millions game – in this particular case known as the DC Mega Millions – as part of its overall portfolio of lottery games.

Tickets for the DC Mega Millions lottery were first sold on January 31st 2010 when the Multi State Lottery Association (MUSL) who run the Powerball game – of which the Washington DC Lottery is a member – entered into a cross-sales agreement with the Mega Millions consortium – allowing the cross-selling of Mega Millions in Powerball states and Powerball in Mega Millions states.

DC Mega Millions How it Works

The DC Mega Millions works in exactly the same way as the Mega Millions game works in all the States and Districts in the USA 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 that can be won on the DC Lottery Mega Millions.

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

Draws for the DC Mega Millions Lottery take place twice every week on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11.00pm EST.

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

MEGAPLIER…

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

With the Mega Millions MEGAPLIER – you will automatically multiply your winnings on these levels by 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x – greatly increasing the amount you can walk away with.

If you match 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 x5 and you could win US$ 5 MILLION.

A great improvement to the MEGAPLIER facility occurred on October 19th 2013.

This can make your Mega Millions win even bigger when you play Mega Millions using the MEGAPLIER prize multiplier option.

The 2nd Mega Millions prize has automatically been quadrupled to US$ 1 MILLION and a more powerful MEGAPLIER multiplier of x5 has been brought in.

This means that if you match all 5 of the main Mega Millions numbers and play using the MEGAPLIER option – you will now win US$ 5 MILLION if a MEGAPLIER of x5 has been drawn.

So, for just an extra dollar – you can choose to increase your DC Mega Millions winnings on all levels except the jackpot – by adding the Mega Millions MEGAPLIER option when playing.
