ABOUT THE MEGA MILLIONS LOTTERY
Mega Millions is America's biggest jackpot game with jackpots starting at $12 million and other prizes ranging from $2 to $250,000!
Mega Millions, the game that holds the record for the largest jackpot in North American history, began on August 31, 1996 as the Big Game. The first drawing took place on September 6, 1996, with six states participating: Georgia, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan and Virginia.
After exciting growth of the game in 1997, a Tuesday drawing was added to Mega Millions in February 1998. Players were given a larger choice of numbers and a "cash payout" option in January 1999. In May 1999, New Jersey became the seventh member state.
In May 2002, the multi-state game was given the new name of "Mega Millions," New York and Ohio became member states, and the game matrix and prize amounts were changed to offer players more excitement.
In September 2002, Washington became the 10th member state, followed by Texas in December 2003. In June 2005, California became the 12th member, solidifying Mega Millions as the country's most widely played multi-state jackpot game.
On March 6, 2007, Mega Millions again made history with a jackpot of $390 million - setting the record for the largest jackpot in North America.
