How to Play

You can play Mega Millions in Michigan if you are at least 18 years old. Just select five numbers between 1 and 70 and a Mega Ball from a separate pool of 25 numbers.

It costs $2 per ticket to play Mega Millions, but you can also add the Megaplier option for an extra $1. Anyone who plays the Megaplier will increase the value of any non-jackpot prizes they win by up to 5x.

Prizes are available for matching as few as three of the main white numbers, or even for matching just the Mega Ball.

How to Claim a Prize

Mega Millions players have up to one year after the date of the winning draw to claim any prizes. If prizes remain unclaimed after this time, they will be distributed in accordance with state lottery regulations.

You will only be able to claim your Mega Millions prize in Michigan if you purchased your ticket in the state. The exact claims procedure varies depending on how much you have won and whether you purchased your ticket in-store or online.
