$3 Million Mega Millions Prize Awarded to Michigan Lottery Player

One player one $3 million playing Mega Millions. Here's how you can too with the Michigan Lottery.

The Michigan Lottery has proved once again that you do not have to leave your home to become a millionaire. That is precisely what happened to one lucky Commerce TWP resident after buying Mega Millions lottery tickets online

The lucky player was able to win $3 million in their pajamas, so to speak. Below, you can see how to potentially replicate the same outcome and what you can do to achieve the best odds. 

Game Details 

Estimated Jackpot: $244 million

Purchasing Options: Online and In-Store

Ticket Cost: $2.00

Drawing Schedule: Tuesday and Friday at 11:00 p.m.

 

How to Play

 

Players simply need to think about their five favorite white ball numbers that range from 1 to 70. Once that is completed, you will need to choose one gold ball that spans between 1 to 25

For some extra features to consider, one more dollar on your game will unlock the multiplier feature. This could turn your prize amount into something larger if the multiplier happens to land on 2X, 3X, 4X, or 5X the amount. 

As mentioned above, you do not have to purchase your tickets online to become a winner. However, the option to purchase in the store is still available at your local lottery retailer. 

 

Odds, Price, and Prizes

 

The overall odds of winning a single prize for Mega Millions are currently set at 1 in 24. Buying another ticket with different numbers will be your best bet if you want to increase your chances of winning a prize. 

Each game is only two dollars to play. But, with the addition of the multiplier, this will turn a ticket from two dollars to three dollars. However, the potential return could greatly pay for itself with a win.

As for the odds, they will greatly differ depending on the prize won. Check out the prize table online for further information regarding the odds and prizes.  

The most common prize that players are most likely going to take home is the Mega Ball number prize. This winning combination is $4 for that specific outcome. 

If you are lucky enough to match all five white balls, these odds are set at 1 in 12,607,306. These can be difficult to obtain, but it is possible since the recent winner took home a top prize.
