Mega Millions Lotto MegaMillions Rules

As the MegaMillions is such a huge lottery and has such a large player base right across the USA and the rest of the world – we thought it useful to include a section here on the more fundamental and important of the Mega Millions Rules that apply to you when you play Play Mega Millions online or offline.

Naturally it would be beyond the scope of this website to cover every single rule that applies to the Mega Millions Lottery – for an exhaustive list of Mega Millions Rules you will need to visit the official Mega Millions website for the State or country that you reside in or intend to buy lottery tickets from.

Having said that, we think it important that we should look at least look at the most basic Mega Millions rules here and provide a broad understanding of the Mega Millions Lotto and the things that you really DO need to know about when you Play MegaMillions.

Mega Millions Rules Mega Millions Tickets

It is obvious of course, that when we play Mega Millions that our chief aim is to win the lottery and preferably be lucky enough achieve a big Mega Millions win.

Just think what an awful situation it would be if we were to correctly select those Mega Millions winning numbers one day only to find that we could not claim our Mega Millions Prize because we were claiming the prize in a different State or country to where we actually purchased our Mega Millions tickets.

One of the basic MegaMillions rules when playing is that you DO need to claim your Mega Millions prize in the same State or country to where you bought your Mega Millions tickets. This is an important point to note when you play Mega Millions.

Therefore if, for example, you are away on vacation or on business in a different State when you purchase your Mega Millions tickets – you will need to check your own Mega Millions numbers against the Mega Millions Lottery Results in the State that you bought the ticket. Do this BEFORE you return home to your own State and if you know that you are a Mega Millions winner – claim your Mega Millions prize in the State that you originally purchased your Mega Millions Tickets in.

It would certainly be a big shock to have correctly picked the winning Mega Millions Numbers and miss out on what could potentially be a really huge Mega Millions Jackpot win simply by not being aware of what is one of the more basic of Mega Millions rules.

This is one of the Mega Millions rules that needs to be in place due to the fact that the Mega Millions lottery is not particular to any one State but is played right across 45 States and Jurisdictions in the USA and each of those States has its own pool of money to draw from should the Mega Millions jackpot or any of the many other
Mega Millions Lotto prizes be won within its boundaries.

It is important to note that this particular Mega Millions rule will not affect you if you buy lottery tickets online either within the USA or from anywhere around the world. If you Play MegaMillions online your lottery ticket sales company will take care of all ticket purchasing and payments if you are a MegaMillions winner.

Mega Millions Rules Mega Millions Prize

This is another of the fundamental Mega Millions rules that we believe is so important to be aware of that we felt it needed to be included here.

Basically whenever you buy lottery tickets for the USA LotteryMega Millions – keep them in as safe a place as possible because if you lose them your Mega Millions prize can be claimed by somebody else!

The operators of the Mega Millions Lottery can accept no responsibility should you mislay your Mega Millions tickets – this is much the same all over the world with the hundreds of different national lottery operators.

If you should Buy Mega Millions Tickets and then lose them, it is perfectly legal for someone ELSE to claim what should be YOUR Mega Millions prize if they subsequently find your lost Mega Millions lotto ticket and hand it in.

The one way you can give yourself some level of protection here is to sign the back of your Mega Millions tickets.

The Mega Millions rules state that a Mega Millions lottery ticket is a “bearer instrument” and that anybody who has possession of the ticket can make a claim unless the lottery ticket is signed.

So losing your Mega Millions tickets could mean that you could miss out quite easily on some huge MegaMillions jackpot prize that should rightfully be yours just because someone else has been lucky enough to find the Mega Millions lottery ticket that you have mislaid.

Therefore it is the person who actually hands in the lottery ticket who is entitled to claim whatever Mega Millions Prize is due and it is the ticket holder who is deemed to be the lawful owner – not necessarily the person who purchased the Mega Millions tickets.

Mega Millions Jackpot Rollover

One of the really great Mega Millions rules is that there is no limit to how many times the Mega Millions jackpot can rollover each time that it is not won.

This one rule means that very frequently the MegaMillions jackpot reaches such incredibly high levels that the whole of the lottery playing world is watching it draw after draw.

Explained simply – each time that the Mega Millions Jackpot is not won – a minimum of US$ 5 MILLION is added on to the lottery jackpot prize fund for the following draw and so on until there is a Mega Millions winner of the jackpot prize.

So it is not uncommon to see many of the Mega Millions jackpot prizes in the range of US$ 200 MILLION to US$ 300 MILLION and even up to US$ 400 MILLION or more – the overall record to date being a whopping US$ 656 MILLION Mega Millions jackpot that was won in March 2012.

Mega Millions Rules Annuity or Cash Lump Sum?

If you find yourself to be one of the lucky Mega Millions winners of a jackpot prize you will be able to claim your prize in one of two ways…

  • An annuity payment payable over a 30 year period.
  • A cash lump sum.

The time at which you have to make the choice between taking your Mega Millions jackpot prize as either a cash payment or an annuity depends upon which State you are claiming your Mega Millions prize in – full details on this are listed below.

Other aspects of claiming a Mega Millions jackpot prize also vary slightly from State to State. If you have a look at the table below you will see the individual criteria for claiming a Mega Millions prize with each of the US State Lottery companies
