COLUMBIA, SC (September 13, 2010) – Playing Mega Millions® with Megaplier® could make more South Carolinians millionaires! Beginning with the Tuesday, September 14 draw, players who match all five white ball numbers and purchase Megaplier®, regardless of the Megaplier® number drawn, will win a cool million dollars!
Mega Millions® tickets cost $1 each. Purchasing the Megaplier® costs an additional $1. The Megaplier® number is selected during the Mega Millions® drawing, not selected by the players. The Megaplier® is a multiplier option, which would multiply non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, or 4. Players win the jackpot by matching all five white ball numbers and the gold Megaball®.
The new Mega Millions® with Megaplier® $1 million Match 5 + 0 prize is similar to Powerball® with PowerPlay® where a player matching all five white ball numbers wins a $1 million prize when they purchase PowerPlay® regardless of multiplier number selected.
Mega Millions® drawings are held Tuesday and Friday evenings at 11 p.m. Mega Millions® jackpots start at $12 million.
Approximately 97 cents of every dollar spent by players on the South Carolina Education Lottery is returned to the state in the form of contributions to education, prizes, retailer commissions, and payment to contractors for goods and services.
