Prices Disclaimer: The displayed prices are intended as a guide only and whilst we work hard to ensure they're up to date, they are subject to change from the operators.

Where the prices are the same, our ratings (based on 9 categories) are taken into account.
In March 2012, MegaMillions gave away a record $1.5 BILLION jackpot – with the prize split among three winning tickets. But this is no one-off. Jackpots typically soar into the hundreds of millions.
Since Mega Millions launched in 2002 we have seen some truly staggering jackpots - the largest being $1.5 BILLION in 2018. With the jackpots regularly reaching hundreds of millions this makes our own UK National Lottery, where jackpots are averaging around £20 million, pale into insignificance.
Until recent years all UK citizens could do is watch our neighbours across the pond win their huge jackpots - legally UK citizens can play the US Mega Millions, however, logistically this means you needed to be in the USA to purchase a ticket. With the recent expansion of ‘bet on jackpot’ providers, such as Lottoland, UK customers can legally bet on the Mega Millions and win the jackpot.
There are two US Mega Millions draws each week – Every Wednesday and Saturday at approx. 04:00AM (GMT).
You have a 1 in 24 chance of winning any prize and a 1 in 302,575,350 chance of winning the jackpot. To improve your chance of winning you can bet as part of a syndicate.
Simply choose choose 5 numbers (1-70) and 1 MegaBall (1-25)
