Is There a Formula for Choosing Mega Millions Numbers?

Technically speaking there is no magic formula or secret system to choose Mega Millions numbers. Unless the draw is rigged, there is no way that you can guarantee a winning set of numbers for the jackpot of a lottery. The Mega Millions numbers are chosen randomly so the game is fair and everyone has an equal chance of winning the jackpot.

Though the jackpot can go much higher, it is never less than 15 million US Dollars. The biggest jackpot in the history of the Mega Millions was 390 million US Dollars. The winnings were split between two winners.

The game itself is not complicated, but to choose the correct set of numbers is the hard part. To play the game you have to pick five main numbers from 1 to 56.  You also have to pick a golden ball or a mega million ball from 1 to 46. This ball is not drawn from the same machine as the other balls. This means that you can pick the same number as from your main draw – however, the likelihood of the number being drawn again is not that high. There is also an easy pick option where the numbers will be selected randomly by the machine. Remember – you can only win the jackpot if you match all six numbers. If you only match some of the numbers you will be in line for the runner up prize.

If you were only able to match one single number, you will get 2 Dollars. Some don’t even claim the money, but it covers the cost of your lotto ticket which means that even though you did not win, you also did not lose.

There are also other great lotteries that you can look at like, the UK Lotto, the Euro millions, SuperEnalotto and Powerball. Each of these will consist of their own set of rules and a fixed amount of numbers you have to choose in order to be a winner. Each draw will also have its own set of lucky and commonly drawn numbers so bear this in mind and do some research on the internet!

Happy betting!
