Nebraska Mega Millions
04/03/2020 - The Mega Millions Consortium has adjusted the game's starting jackpot and will determine the amounts of subsequent starting jackpots and jackpot increases on a drawing-by-drawing basis. The changes are in direct response to slowing sales during the current global pandemic. Click here for details.
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 70 for your five white ball numbers by marking the top section of the Mega Millions play slip. Then, pick one number between 1 and 25 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 $2 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.
Just the Jackpot™
A new wager type - Just the Jackpot - will give players two chances to win the jackpot prize only. For $3, a player will receive two quick pick plays eligible for the jackpot prize only. No other prize levels will be awarded on Just the Jackpot tickets.
To purchase a Just the Jackpot ticket, ask the clerk to produce a Just the Jackpot ticket for your desired number of drawings (24 drawings maximum). Just the Jackpot tickets cannot be purchased using a play slip.
Players who choose to add the $1 Megaplier option have the chance to multiply prizes between $2 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: one (1) number 5, three (3) number 4s, six (6) number 3s, and five (5) 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.
