Yes, two numbers in Mega Millions are worth something. Players must match the five regular numbers (1-70) and the additional Mega Ball number (1-25) in order to win a prize. Matching just two of the regular numbers and the additional Mega Ball number can win you a prize, but the prize will not be one of the jackpot levels.
Instead, depending on whether the Megaplier option is played or not, players can win up to $10 for matching two numbers and the Mega Ball number alone.
How many numbers do you need to win a prize in Mega Millions?
In order to win a prize in the Mega Millions lottery game, you need to match five numbers from 1 to 70 and one Mega Ball number from 1 to 25. If you match all six numbers, you will win the Mega Millions jackpot.
If you only match five numbers without the Mega Ball number, you will win the second prize. The second prize can range from $1 million to $5 million, depending on the Megaplier option chosen by the player.
If you match three numbers and the Mega Ball number, you will win the third prize, and if you match just two numbers and the Mega Ball, you will win the fourth prize. To win any prize, you must match at least two numbers and the Mega Ball number.

Do you win anything with 3 numbers?
Yes, you can win something with 3 numbers depending on which game you are playing. For instance, if you are playing a lottery game with 3 numbers like a Pick 3 game, you can win a prize if the three numbers you chose (known as your “play”) match the three numbers that are randomly drawn.
Similarly, in some bingo games, you can win a prize if you can cover any 3 numbers on the bingo card in a row, column, or diagonal pattern. Additionally, in some instant win games, like scratch cards, you can win a prize if the 3 numbers revealed under the playing surface match the specified “winning” numbers.
