Mega Millions Online Tickets
If you reside in Georgia, Illinois, Kentucky, Michigan, New Hampshire, North Carolina, North Dakota or Pennsylvania, you may purchase your Mega Millions tickets online by registering with the above states’ lotteries. You may also be able to buy a subscription online in New York and Virginia.
As we previously reported in our last article, businesses had to close down their doors temporarily, as well as retail lottery agencies. This forces state lotteries to experience a substantial decline in revenue. The director of the Mega Millions Consortium and CEO of the Maryland Lottery explained how Maryland Lottery saw a 30% decrease in revenue in just the first three weeks of the closure of non-essential businesses. However, with this in mind, it’s making it easier for lottery companies to go online. This would of course help with bringing companies’ revenue back on track.
Mega Millions jackpot rule adjustments
Due to the drop in sales due to the situation, the minimum jackpot amount has been removed. There will no longer be a fixed minimum jackpot amount because the starting jackpot will now be determined before each drawing and it will depend on ticket sales and interest rates.
The minimum jackpot increase has also been extracted. Before, the minimum increase for each roll was that of $5 million, now the rate at which the jackpot increases will also be determined by interest rates and the number of tickets sold. The starting jackpot and the jackpot increase rate will be announced before each Mega Millions drawing. The odds of winning a Mega Millions jackpot have not been and will not be altered.
