Ohio Mega Millions Mega Millions Ohio

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

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 huge world record jackpot of a huge US$ 656 MILLION in March 2012. This massive jackpot was shared between 3 Mega Millions winning tickets from Illinois, Kansas and Maryland and stands as the 2nd biggest ever prize to have been won in the history of jackpot lottery games around 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 with many more to follow.

Lottery tickets for the Ohio Mega Millions were first sold back on May 17th 2002 taking part in the very first Mega Millions draw – the Ohio Lottery having become the 9th member of the Mega Millions consortium upon its change of status from being the Big Game consortium.

Ohio Lottery Mega Millions How it Works

The Ohio 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 Mega Millions Ohio – 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 Ohio Lottery Mega Millions take place twice every week on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11.00pm EST.

MEGAPLIER…

Many USA Lottery companies that offer the Mega Millions game also offer the option of playing using a Mega Millions MEGAPLIER.

This is where in addition to the 6 Mega Millions numbers drawn a further number is drawn – the MEGAPLIER numberusing a Random Number Generator

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

MEGAPLIER enables players to multiply their winnings on these levels by 2x, 3x, 4x or 5x – greatly increasing the amount they can walk away with.

If a player matches the 5 main Mega Millions numbers, for example, whilst playing with the MEGAPLIER add-on – and a MEGAPLIER number of 5 is drawn – any second tier Mega Millions prize of US$ 1 MILLION would be multiplied by x5 and they could win 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.
