South Carolina Mega Millions

The SC Lottery is 1 of 45 US State & District Lotteries that offer the massive Mega Millions game – in this case the SC 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 record jackpot of a huge US$ 656 MILLION. This massive amount was shared between 3 Mega Millions winning tickets from the States of Illinois, Kansas and Maryland and to date is the biggest jackpot ever won in the history of jackpot lotto 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 and more would follow.

The SC Mega Millions was first sold on January 31st 2010 when the Multi State Lottery Association (MUSL) who run the Powerball game – of which the SC Education 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.

SC Mega Millions How it Works

The South Carolina Mega Millions works in precisely the same way that 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 SC Lottery Mega Millions from 2 separate drawing machines – firstly 5 numbers are drawn from 75 white balls and then 1 number (the MEGAball) is drawn from 15 gold balls.

Draws for the South Carolina Lottery Mega Millions 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 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 SC a chance to increase their winnings on all levels of the prize structure apart from the South Carolina 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 x5 and they could win US$ 5 MILLION.

SC 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 a total of 9 different ways in which you can win on the SC Mega Millions – you have a great chance of winning a prize.

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


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 random number picker / 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.


You can use any of these methods whether you are playing the SC Mega Millions in-state or if you play Mega Millions Online with an authorized online lottery ticket sales company such as TheLotter.

MEGAPLIER…

For just an extra dollar – you can choose to increase your SC Lottery Mega Millions winnings on all levels except the jackpot itself – by adding the MEGAPLIER option when you are playing the SC Mega Millions.

If your chosen South Carolina Mega Millions numbers match the Mega Millions winning numbers on any of these prize levels – you immediately increase your winnings 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 MegaMillions prize of US$ 1 MILLION will be increased by 5x and you could will 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.
