Mega Millions Prizes

There are nine different ways to win Mega Millions prizes in every draw, based on how many numbers you match. You can win $2 just for matching the Megaball, while the jackpot is won by matching all five main numbers plus the Megaball. Until further notice, the starting jackpot will vary based on sales and will be announced before each drawing.

If there are multiple winners of the jackpot, it will be shared equally between them. The eight prizes below the jackpot are fixed amounts, so for these prizes there is a guaranteed payout regardless of how many winning players there are. Go to the Powerball Numbers page to see the latest prize payouts.

For a small additional fee, you can opt to use the Mega Piler option which will increase the prize payout for any non-jackpot win by a multiple of 2, 3, 4 or 5 depending on which Mega Piler number is drawn. Match 5 winnings are always doubled to $2 million with the Mega Piler option, no matter which Mega Piler number is drawn. This option is available in all participating states and jurisdictions except California, where prizes must be pari-mutuel according to state law. In Idaho, Mega Piler is automatically included on every ticket.
