Mega Millions outshines the National Lottery in most aspects:
- Bigger jackpotsThe average National Lottery jackpot is a mere £4,000,000. The average Mega Millions jackpot is £32,000,000.
- The biggest National lottery jackpot ever won was for £42,000,000. The largest Mega Millions jackpot was for £405,000,000!
- Your odds of wining a prize on Mega Millions are 1:15. Your odds of winning a prize on the National Lottery is 1:50.
- National Lottery tickets and playing MegaMillions online at Lottoland both cost £2 each.
It's easy to see why with bigger prizes and better odds why for the same price Mega Millions is a better option than the National lottery. But what about EuroMillions, Europe's biggest lottery?
- EuroMillions has a maximum jackpot of £161,000,000, the biggest lottery prize available in Europe but this is more than doubled by Mega Millions top payout of £405 million! To put those numbers into context, the EuroMillions jackpot would make you almost as rich as David and Victoria Beckham while the Mega Millions jackpot would make you wealthier than the Queen!
- Your chances of winning a prize on EuroMillions is 1:13 and 1:15 on MegaMillions.
- Both MegaMillions UK and EuroMillions cost £2 to play.
While EuroMillions definitely stacks up better against Mega Millions than the National lottery does, offering slightly better odds of winning, Mega Million awards much bigger payouts for the same price.

With such great odds of multiplying your prize it’s no wonder that Mega Millions has grown into America’s most popular lotto!
The Origins of Mega Millions
It may surprise you to know that Mega Millions comes from relatively humble beginnings. It was originally called the “Big Game”, a weekly lottery which was only offered in 6 eastern States. The idea of a multi-state lottery quickly became popular and an additional draw and bigger prizes were offered, attracting even more players hoping to choose the lucky numbers. As the Big Game grew, more and more States began to get involved and the lotto was rebranded as Mega Millions. By 2005, Mega Millions had become the most popular multi-state lotto in America and now 43 states as well as the District of Columbia and the US Virgin Islands are participants!
