Mega Millions - $91 Million Jackpot for 12/09/2014
Happy New Year everyone!
It’s been a huge year for Mega Millions with new millionaires and multi-millionaires being minted at breakneck speed.
As with all things American, Mega Millions is big and epic – especially when it comes to the jackpots. So if you’re looking for a chance to win a few hundred million then you’re in luck, because you can now play MegaMillions online, from the UK and throughout Europe.
Unlucky For Some – But Perhaps Not For You!
Mega Millions will be thirteen years old in 2015, having replaced The Big Game in 2002. Thirteen is a number that many people consider unlucky, though in one recent study it was found that, across multiple lotteries throughout the world, 13 is a lucky lottery number.
It’s also a good number to pick, statistically speaking, as it’s often shunned by superstitious players. So not only are you picking a globally proven “hot number”, you’re also picking one that people are less likely to pick, reducing your chances of a shared jackpot.
BIG Cash Payouts
The New Year started off with a bang when Steve Tran bought a ticket in a small store in San José, California only to win $324 million (over £208 million) on the third of January 2014. From there on in the big wins kept on coming.
In March seven co-workers from New York’s Division of Housing and Community Renewal split a win of $319 million (over £205 million) while, more recently, a woman from Georgia also won $324 million on December 18th.
Such massive jackpots are far more common Stateside than they are with lotteries like EuroMillions and, as expected, the fanfares and cheerleading is always much louder.
The minimum jackpot, meanwhile, is worth $15 million. That’s about £9.6 million, which is still more than the last two National Lottery jackpots of 2014.
Double Your Winnings
The odds of a win when playing MegaMillions is far better than its immediate competitor, PowerBall, the other big American lottery, as is the record jackpot amount, worth $656 million (about £421 million).
MegaMillions also offers a Megaplier function where non-jackpot winnings can be multiplied by up to 5x. This means that, if you opt to use this feature, you’ll get five times your winning for any win, provided it’s not the jackpot.
Still, there is a way you can use a jackpot multiplier if you play online, but only if you play online with Lottoland.
Using their exclusive DoubleJackpot feature you can double up on jackpot wins, so, if we take the current record of $656 million and double it. That would give you $1.31 billion, approximately £840 million.
With that kind of money you could buy new a Rolls Royce for yourself every day, for ten years, and still have plenty of money to spare. Not a smart investment, to be frank, unless you’re a huge fan of Richard Pryor and wish to make a real-life remake of Brewster’s Millions. Still this is exactly the kind of money you can win when you play Mega Millions.
$221 Million Up For Grabs!
Now here’s a way to start off 2015 with a hefty taste of American largesse. The Mega Millions jackpot this Saturday is $221 million USD – that’s over £146 million. Imagine the holiday you could book with that! You can also double that win up to £292 million using the DoubleJackpot feature exclusive to play Mega Millions online at Lottoland.↩ Go back to news
