When buying a Mega Millions ticket, you can choose six numbers to play. For the white balls, the first five numbers will be selected from 1 to 70, and for the golden Mega Ball, the final number will be selected from 1 to 25.

The option to choose Easy Pick or Quick Pick, which will generate the numbers for your ticket at random, is available for those who find it intimidating to choose their own numbers.

For an extra dollar, you can choose to add a Megaplier when playing in specific states. Making this choice could result in a 2, 3, 4, or even 5x increase in your non-jackpot winnings.

Grocery stores, convenience stores and gas stations are the physical locations where tickets can be bought. Lottery tickets may also be sold at certain airport terminals.
