    “Before each Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday and Friday nights, the Megaplier is drawn.

    “From a pool of 15 balls, five are marked with 2X, six with 3X, three with 4X and one with 5X. This mix results in the following odds for each of the Megaplier numbers and their associated prize values.”

    PREVENT GETTING SCAMMED

    The Mega Millions lists the following tips to prevent begin scammed.

    • “If someone says you have won a lottery that you have never played, be suspicious. You can’t win a legitimate lottery if you didn’t buy a ticket.
    • If you are in a jurisdiction that is outside the market area of the lottery or game mentioned as the source of the ‘prize,’ then it is a scam. Real lotteries do not hold ‘international’ sweepstakes, contests or awards for people who live outside their market area. Mega Millions, for example, is played only in the United States, so if you are outside the U.S. and someone using our name tells you that you have won a big prize, it is a scam.
    • If you have caller-ID on your phone, check the area code when someone calls to tell you you’ve won. If it is from a foreign country, that is a red flag. Also, be aware that some con artists use technology that allows them to disguise their area code: although it may look like they’re calling from your state, they could be anywhere in the world.”

    CAN WINNERS REMAIN ANONYMOUS?

    There are various ways to remain anonymous to claim a lottery prize.

    Buying a lottery ticket in a state that does not require winners to come forward is an effective way to conceal your identity. 

    Another way is to not tell anyone you scored the jackpot or change much of your lifestyle to avoid having your identity revealed.

    Deleting social media accounts, changing phone numbers, and addresses can also be an alternative to remaining anonymous.

    POWERBALL RULES

    The Powerball website explains: “The Powerball jackpot grows until it is won. Players select five numbers from 1 to 69; and one Powerball number from 1 to 26.

    “Players can multiply non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times with the Power Play® option for an additional $1 per play.

    NOTE: The Match 5 + Power Play prize is always $2 million. The 10X multiplier is only in play when the advertised jackpot is $150 million or less.

      NORTH AND SOUTH DAKOTA LAWS

      North Dakota “is the only state where voters refused to authorize a state lottery, in part because the state already has so many other forms of gambling, including charity casinos,” the survey reports.

      In South Dakota, you must be 18 to buy a lottery ticket and 21 to play a video lottery terminal.
