To play Mega Millions online you need to either pick, or allow a Quickpick computer programme to pick for you, five different numbers from 1 to 70 (white balls) and one number from 1 to 25 (golden ball). The gold coloured Mega Ball is drawn from a separate machine, so it can be a duplicate of one of the white ball numbers. The Mega Ball number cannot cross over to be used for matching a white ball number, or vice versa.

Your odds of winning the Mega Millions jackpot are about 1 in 303 million. Your odds of winning any Mega Millions prize are about 1 in 37.

After Mega Millions has changed its rules, your chances to win Mega Millions jackpot are actually worse than in Powerball with the odds of 1:292 million.
