Firstly, MegaMillions (which began as The Big Game in 1996 and renamed, temporarily, to The Big Game MegaMillions six years later) is an American multi-jurisdictional lottery game. It is offered in 44 states, the District of Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Islands. The first (The Big Game) MegaMillions drawing was in 2002. (What is now MegaMillions initially was offered in six states; the logo for all versions of the game following the retiring of The Big Game name featured a gold-colored ball with six stars to represent the game’s initial membership.)

Reflecting common practice among American lotteries, the jackpot is advertised as a nominal value of annual installments. A cash value option, when chosen by a jackpot winner, pays the approximate present value of the installments. MegaMillions’ previous format began on October 19, 2013; its first drawing was three days later.The current version of MegaMillions requires players to match 5 of 70 white balls, and the gold-colored “MegaBall” from a second field, of 25 numbers.
Each game costs $2. Of the 46 MegaMillions jurisdictions, all but California offer an option, called Megaplier where non-jackpot prizes are multiplied by 2, 3, 4, or 5. The Megaplier was made available to all MegaMillions jurisdictions in January 2011 but it began as an option available only in Texas. Several of the game’s members offer the Just the Jackpot option, in which two plays cost $3. Only the jackpot can be won; none of the lower-tier prizes are available on such a wager.
The largest jackpot (in which the jackpot was won) in Mega Millions history was $1.537 billion, for the October 23, 2018 drawing, in which there was one winning jackpot ticket, sold in South Carolina.
