# How many numbers on the Mega Millions do you have to match to win?

In order to win the Mega Millions lottery, you must match all six of the numbered balls drawn. The numbered balls will range from 1 to 70. A seventh ball is also drawn, known as the Mega Ball. To win the grand prize jackpot, a contestant must correctly match all 5 of the main Mega Millions numbers, and also correctly match the Mega Ball number.

If there is more than one winner, the jackpot will be divided among the winners. In order to win any other prizes, you must match at least two of the main numbers, plus the Mega Ball. The amount of the prize will depend on the number of numbers you have matched correctly.

There are also other prizes available for players who match fewer than 6 numbers, including prizes for matching just the Mega Ball.

## What do you win with 2 numbers on Mega Millions?

If you have two matching numbers on the Mega Millions lottery, depending on the drawing you may win a prize. Generally, the matching numbers must be the first five numbers (the white balls) and not include the gold Mega Ball.

Winning two numbers on the Mega Millions typically nets you the lowest possible prize, which is the \$2 prize. This is sometimes referred to as the “Megaplier” prize. The amount of the prize can vary depending on the number of people who match two numbers and how much the jackpot is.

There is also a multiplier that can be used to increase the amount of your winnings up to 5 times.

## How many numbers do you need to win a prize in Mega Millions?

In order to win a prize in Mega Millions, you need to match 5 numbers as well as the Mega Ball number. The five numbers can be chosen from a pool of 75 white balls, while the Mega Ball can be chosen from a separate pool of 15 balls.

If you are able to match all the numbers correctly, you will win the jackpot prize. However, if you are able to only match the five main numbers, but not the Mega Ball, then you will win the second-tier prize.

The odds of winning any prize on a Mega Millions ticket are 1 in 24.

## Do you win anything with just the Mega Ball?

No, you don’t win anything with just the Mega Ball. To win a prize in Mega Millions, you need to match at least the Mega Ball number, along with other numbers. The other numbers you’ll need to match will depend on the prize tier you are trying to win.

For example, to win the Mega Millions jackpot, you must match all five white ball numbers (1-70) plus the Mega Ball number (1-25). To win the second prize tier, you’ll need to match the five white ball numbers and only the Mega ball number.

Any additional matching numbers will increase the prize amount you can receive.

## Does 3 numbers pay in lotto?

No, 3 numbers do not pay in the lottery. The lottery is a randomly drawn game of chance and players have to match a certain number of numbers in order to win a prize. The number of numbers will depend on the lottery you are playing but usually jackpots pay out for matching all 6 numbers.

Most lotteries also have secondary prizes for matching a certain number of numbers, such as 5 numbers or 4 numbers, but 3 numbers will not be enough to win anything from the lottery.

## What happens if you get the Mega Ball number and one other number?

If you get the Mega Ball number and one other number, you will have matched two numbers and won a prize. Depending on the game, you may win either a fixed prize or a prize based on the prize pool for that draw.

To check the prize you have won, consult the game’s official website or its app. Depending on the game, you may have to match more than one additional number to receive the top prize. For example, with the US Powerball game, you must match five numbers plus the Mega Ball to win the jackpot.

## What if I hit the Mega Ball number only?

If you only hit the Mega Ball number, you may not win the grand prize. You may still win a smaller prize depending on the state you purchased your ticket in. In some states, you can win a prize for matching just the Mega Ball number, known as the Megaplier option.

The amount of the prize may vary depending on the state and how much money was spent on the ticket. However, if you match the five regular numbers and the Mega Ball, you will win the grand prize.

## Does 3 numbers win anything on Mega?

If you match all 6 of the Mega numbers in the draw, you could win the Mega Jackpot and become a millionaire. If you don’t match all 6 numbers, you could still win a prize by matching 3, 4, or 5 numbers, but the prizes will be smaller.
