  • Four ivory spheres = $500.
  • Three white spheres + one golden ball = $200.
  • Three ivory balls = $10.
  • Two ivory balls + one golden ball = $10.

    What is the Megaplier?

    Many states provide the Megaplier option, which enhances non-jackpot rewards by two, three, four, and fivefold.

    It requires an extra $1 for each play.

    The Megaplier is selected prior to each standard Mega Millions drawing. Five balls are designated with “2X,” three with “4X,” and one with “5X,” from a group of 15 balls.
