Winning the Mega Millions with Two Numbers and the Mega Ball
The Mega Millions lottery is a popular multi-state lottery game that offers players the chance to win huge jackpots. Players must choose five numbers from 1 to 70, plus one additional number (the Mega Ball) from 1 to 25. If you match two of the five main numbers and the Mega Ball, you can win a prize.
Prize Amounts for Matching Two Numbers and the Mega Ball
The amount you can win depends on how many other players also matched two numbers and the Mega Ball. If there are no other winners, then you will win the entire jackpot. However, if there are other winners, then your prize will be a percentage of the total jackpot amount. The exact percentage depends on how many other winners there were.
For example, if there were three other winners who also matched two numbers and the Mega Ball, then your prize would be 25% of the total jackpot amount. This means that if the jackpot was $100 million, then you would receive $25 million as your prize.
