Megabucks PLUS Maine State Lottery

The Maine State Lottery is 1 of 3 separate US State Lotteries that offer the TriState Lottery Tri State Megabucks PLUS as part of the overall portfolio of Maine Lottery games.

The Tri State Megabucks PLUS is a Multi State Lottery game that is organized and operated by the Tri State Lottery Consortium who administer and syndicate Tri State Lotto games across the three New England States of Maine, New Hampshire and Vermont.

The TriState Megabucks has produced a record jackpot to date of an amazing US$ 16.4 Million.

The first Megabucks draw took place on September 14th 1985 and lasted until it was replaced by the bigger and better Tri State Megabucks PLUS on July 26th 2009.

The Tri State Megabucks was the first Multi State Lottery game to be introduced into the USA when it was first brought out by the Maine Lottery, Vermont Lottery and New Hampshire Lottery.

Draws for the Maine Megabucks are made from the offices of the new Hampshire Lottery Commission in Concord NH.

The Maine Megabucks was first sold on September 3rd 1985 when tickets were first issued by the TriState Lottery group – and the collaborative partnership between the Maine State Lottery, New Hampshire Lottery and the Vermont Lottery began.

Megabucks Maine How it Works

The Maine Megabucks game works in exactly the same way that the Tri State Megabucks PLUS works in the States of New Hampshire and Vermont.

Jackpots start off at US$ 1 Million and ROLLOVER after each draw the top prize is not won – increasing in size by a minimum of US$ 50,000 each time – making for some quite large jackpots to be won.

6 numbers are drawn in total for the Maine Megabucks by a random number generator – firstly 5 numbers from 41 are drawn and then from a second set of numbers – 1 number (the MEGAball) from 6 is drawn.
