About MegaMillions

The History of MegaMillions

Multistate USA Lottery games gained a great deal of interest after a record $363 million Big Game jackpot in 2000. Lotto games grew and many more people started playing lottery games. During May 2002,  Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Jersey, Virginia, New York and Ohio joined forces to create Mega Millions! Tickets for Megamillions were first sold on  May 15, 2002 and the first draw took place on May 17, 2002.

Mega Millions jackpots start at $12 million and with millions of people playing through the internet, jackpots can roll over and offer even bigger prizes.

During September 2002, Washington joined Megamillions, with Texas following and eventually California joined the group during June 2005.g MegaMillions is now the most widely played Lotto game in the United States.

The only way to win Megamillions is to play!
