Mega Millions® is an exciting big-jackpot game that begins at an incredible $40,000,000 and then grows even larger from there.* The jackpot keeps building whenever there is no winner. The longer the jackpot goes without being hit, the bigger it grows. Drawings occur every Tuesday and Friday night.
*As of April 3rd, 2020, until further notice: After a jackpot-winning Mega Millions ticket is sold, the starting jackpot amount for the next drawing will be determined by game sales and interest rates and will be announced prior to the drawing. There will be no minimum jackpot increase for each roll. Learn more about Mega Millions changes.
