Mega millions® Megaplier® to become even more mega
$1 million second prize, chance to win up to $5 million with Megaplier®

Starting with the October 22, 2013, drawing, Rhode Island Lottery players will see enhancements to the Mega Millions® Megaplier® game.

Changes to the game include higher starting jackpots of $15 million, growing by a minimum of $5 million after each drawing without a jackpot winner. The prize structure is also changing, with the second prize (matching the first five numbers without the Mega Ball) going from $250,000 to $1,000,000; and with the addition of the 5x Megaplier®, players now have the chance to win up to $5,000,000 without hitting the jackpot!

Mega Millions® players will still select six numbers, from 1 to 75 for the first five numbers and from 1 to 15 for the Mega Ball number. 

Mega Millions® is available at all Rhode Island Lottery Retailers.  Ticket price remains at $1 for a basic wager and an additional $1 for the Megaplier® feature.  Drawings are Tuesday and Friday evenings at 11:00pm, and tickets can be purchased up until 9:50pm on drawing nights.
