Playslip Method: Just visit any participating retailer and ask for a Mega Millions playslip. Select five numbers between one and fifty-six from the top portion of each playboard. Then select one Gold Mega Ball number between one and forty-six from the bottom portion. Each Mega Millions game play costs $1.
Quick Pick Method: Or, if you'd prefer, the computer will randomly select your numbers. Just mark the QP box - for Quick Pick - for one or both of your playslip areas.

When You Buy, Megaply!
Play the Megaplier feature for an extra $1.00 per playboard and you could increase your non-grand/jackpot prize winnings by 2, 3, or 4 times! Mark the "YES" box under "Megaplier" to select this feature for all playboards on the playslip. The Megaplier number will be chosen from a field of 21 numbers according to the following frequency: 12 number 4's, 7 number 3's and 2 number 2's. Any non-grand/jackpot prize you win on a Mega Millions play will be multiplied by the Megaplier number drawn if you have purchased the Megaplier feature. For example, if you win $250,000 on Mega Millions and the Megaplier number drawn is 4, you would win $1,000,000 ($250,000 x 4) if you purchased the Megaplier feature.
