What Is the Mega Millions Megaplier?

The Mega Millions Megaplier feature is a prize multiplier that gives you a chance at increasing secondary winnings by 2, 3, 4, or 5 times the amount! An additional number is drawn from a separate barrel of balls at the draw with a range of 1-5. The amount your secondary prize is boosted depends on the Megaplier number selected. For example, a second-place prize could be worth between $2,000,000 and $5,000,000, and a third division prize can grow as high as $50,000 if Megaplier number 5 is selected!

How High Can Mega Millions's Jackpots Grow?

The sky’s the limit when it comes to Mega Million jackpots! This lottery has no cap, so it rolls until someone wins it. At one point, Mega Millions held the world record for the largest lottery jackpot ever! This incredible prize was awarded to three lucky winners who shared the $656 million jackpot prize in March 2012. The record was held for 4 years until Powerball awarded a $1.586 billion jackpot in January 2016.

In October 2017, Mega Millions made a decision to increase the minimum starting jackpot and the number of Mega Balls. The new guaranteed starting jackpot rose from $17 million to an incredible $40 million jackpot prize (this was lowered to $20 million in 2020). With the lower odds, the jackpot eventually rose to a mind-boggling $1.537 billion! This prize was won by single ticket purchased in South Carolina on October 23rd, 2018.

In July 2022, one lucky winning ticket purchased in Illinois matched every single winning number to pick up a $1.337 billion jackpot. Just a few months later, the lottery outdid itself with a $1.348 billion top prize in the January 13, 2023 draw.
