Mega Jackpot draws are ones that offer an increased jackpot prize pool amount instead of a regular EuroMillions jackpot. It could be that a Mega Jackpot has been produced because of multiple rollovers in the usual manner for Euromillions or simply a rollover Superdraw. However the Mega Jackpot amount is reached they are usually above the £85/€100 million mark. A Mega Jackpot is several times bigger than one in a regular Euromillions lottery game.
Although Mega-Jackpots are bigger than in a normal game, the rules of Mega-Jackpot lottery draws remain the same. This means the odds of winning the Mega-Jackpot (or any other prize, for that matter) are also the same as in a regular draw. When you consider that a single ticket could therefore win €100,000,000 just as easily as it could win €15,000,000 in a regular draw, it stands to reason that Mega Jackpot games offer incredible value for money.
Participating in a Mega Jackpot draw is just as easy as participating in any other. You can buy your Mega Jackpot tickets online, check the lottery results after the draw has taken place and claim any Mega Jackpot prize you have won through the usual channels. The only real difference is that if you win a Mega Jackpot, you will be a whole lot richer than if you had won a normal lottery jackpot.
Because Mega Jackpot lottery draws offer much more prize money to anyone matching all of the numbers required to win the jackpot, demand for Mega Jackpot tickets is always greater than normal. This sometimes creates long queues in retail premises, so it always makes sense to buy Mega-Jackpot tickets online, especially when you also consider that buying online tickets removes the risk of losing them.
