Nebraska Mega Millions
The Mega Millions® jackpot starts at $15 million and continues to grow by at least $5 million each drawing until it is won (beginning with the October 22, 2013, drawing).
Annuity or Cash option
You can choose how to collect your Mega Millions jackpot--30 annual payments (over 29 years) or one cash payment (present value*)--up to 60 days after you become entitled to the prize. The annuity option now gives players annual payments that increase each year--projected at 5 percent.
* if you choose cash, the present cash value is less than the advertised jackpot, which is based on a 30-year annuity.
How to Play
Pick five numbers between 1 and 75 for your five white ball numbers by marking the top section of the Mega Millions play slip. Then, pick one number between 1 and 15 for your gold Mega Ball® number by marking the bottom section of the Mega Millions play slip, or mark the quick pick box on the play slip.
Each play costs $1 and you can pick up to five different sets of numbers on each play slip. You can purchase the same numbers for up to 24 consecutive drawings when you use the multi-draw box on the play slip.
Players who choose to add the $1 Megaplier option have the chance to multiply prizes between $1 and $1,000,000 as many as two, three, four, or five times. The Megaplier number is chosen from a field of 15 numbers according to the following frequency: six (6) number 5s, three (3) number 4s, four (4) number 3s, and two (2) number 2s.
Tickets can be purchased from 5:00 a.m. to 3:00 a.m. (Central Time) any day of the week except from 9:00 p.m. to 9:03 p.m. on drawing nights. Review your play slip carefully before giving it to the clerk. Once printed, a ticket cannot be canceled. Check your tickets before leaving the store.

The winning numbers will be announced every Tuesday and Friday at 10 p.m. Central Time. Get winning numbers here (nelottery.com), from your favorite radio or television station or Nebraska Lottery Lotto retailer, in your local newspaper or USA Today, or on the Players Hotline at 1-800-224-LUCK (5825) or in Lincoln at 402-471-6139.
