If you match two numbers in Mega Millions, you will win a prize of $2. Going one step further, if you match two numbers plus the Mega Ball, you will win a prize of $10. Prizes become larger if you match three or more of the numbers.

Do Quick Picks win?

It depends. Quick Picks are a form of lottery ticket, where the numbers on the ticket are randomly generated by the lottery machine. Statistics show that anywhere from 15-25% of lottery jackpots are won by Quick Pick tickets, so there is a chance that a Quick Pick ticket could be a winning ticket.

However, it is important to keep in mind that the odds for winning a lottery jackpot are incredibly low, with the estimated odds of winning a lottery jackpot being 1 in 175 million for the Powerball.

Additionally, each lottery game has different odds associated with it, so it is important to check the odds for the particular lottery game that you are playing before you purchase a Quick Pick ticket.

Your chances of winning any prize with two numbers are better than 1 in 39, and you might end up winning up to $500. However, if you match two numbers plus the Mega Ball, you could win up to $5,000. Depending on the state, you may also hit the ‘Match 5’ prize tier, which pays $1 million, but that requires you to match all five white balls plus the Mega Ball.

Do you win anything on the lottery with 2 numbers?

No, you do not win anything on the lottery with only two numbers. Generally, in lottery games with numbered balls, you need to match all of the numbers in order to win a prize. Depending on the game and the state in which you are playing, you generally need to match at least 3, 4, 5, or even 6 numbers in order to win.

Although the odds of matching two numbers are much better than matching all the numbers, generally no prizes are awarded for matching two numbers. However, some lotteries may offer consolation prizes for matching two or more numbers.

It is best to check the rules of the lottery where you are playing in order to determine the exact requirements for prizes and/or consolation prizes.

What happens if you get all 5 numbers but not the Powerball?

If you match all 5 numbers but not the Powerball, you will be eligible to win a prize in the second tier. This prize has fixed amounts depending on the game and the number of tickets sold that also matched the numbers.

The second tier prize for Powerball is $1 million, and for Mega Millions it is $1 million without the multiplier, or up to $5 million with the multiplier.

What happens if you get the Powerball number only?

If you get the Powerball number only, you will not win the jackpot, but you can still win a prize. Depending on the rules of the particular Powerball drawing, you may be able to win a smaller prize even if you didn’t match any other numbers.

In many cases, you would need to have matched at least the Powerball to win any prize. If you have only one number and it’s the Powerball, you will probably get a lesser prize of a few dollars. The prize value varies depending on the region where the drawing is taking place and the total amount of tickets sold.
