There are several reasons why we play the lottery. Some punters purchase tickets religiously for the thrills and spills that the age-old game provides, whilst others might buy a ticket once in a blue moon because a whopping jackpot – which may have rolled over once or twice - has caught their eye in a grocery store window, or on a television, or online, commercial.
Whichever type of lottery player you are, we’re sure you’ve purchased your ticket and convinced yourself that, come the draw, you will be the proud owner of the winning numbers! You then precede to imagine how you’ll spend your millions, including what mansion you’re going to buy, getting that supercar you’ve always wanted, and where your first luxury holiday will be.
Nowadays, with the help of the internet, and online Lotto, playing the age-old classic is easier than ever! There’s no need for a last-minute dash to the grocery store to purchase your ticket before the deadline, as you can now pick your numbers from the comfort of your own sofa, or even on your commute to work, using your laptop, tablet, or smartphone. That’s not all, either! You can take part in over 20 different lotteries from all around the globe on just one site – including all your Canadian and American favourites!

How to play the Mega Millions
Since it hit the market in 1996, US lotto Mega Millions has sky-rocketed in popularity. However, the Mega Millions isn’t just one of the biggest games stateside, it is also a giant of the lottery world! And, with jackpots reaching a world-record-breaking $1.5 billion, it’ll come as no surprise that punters never want to miss a draw. To make it even better, the Mega Millions jackpot has no limit, so your winnings are literally endless. Draws take place on Tuesdays and Fridays, and it’s just $2 a line – what’s not to love?
Like most lotteries, playing the Mega Millions is extremely easy, you just need to follow these three simple steps:
1. Select five numbers from the main pool between 1-70
2. Select one Golden Ball number between 1-25
3. Land all five numbers, plus the Golden Ball, to win the jackpot!
As usual, you don’t need to land six numbers to win a cash prize! Rolling in just the Golden ball will land you the smallest prize of $2, whilst landing all five numbers from the main pool is worth a whopping $1,000,000!
And that’s still not all! You can ensure you never miss a draw by turning on the auto-play feature. This gives you the choice between a fixed number of draws, or just triggering an ongoing subscription – which can be stopped at any time!
So, that’s all you need to get started! What are you waiting for?
