I actually enjoy playing megabucks. While the prize may not be the size of pb or mm, it's large enough to make me happy.
Plus it's local and you get two play for a buck.
I like playing it too, that's why I created this thread
Just called the Massachusetts Lottery today for their MegaBucks game called MegaBucks Doubler.
They're the only state I know so far that allows out of state players.
The lady who answered is sending me information, she said all you have to do
is call and give your credit card number in order to play Season Tickets.
3 Month Season Tickets = $25 (26 drawings)
6 Months Season Tickets = $50 (52 drawings)
1 year Season Tickets = $100 (104 drawings)
Same 6/49 game, drawn on the same days Wednesday/Saturday.
Ours (Wisconsin) is computer picked, theirs is Mechanical Ball Lottery Machine.
Wisconsin current Jackpot $5.1 Massachusetts current Jacpot $5.2
Massachusetts MegaBucks Doubler winners can claim prizes anonymously, I saw one from a few years
back called The Shamrock Trust, that prize was $13 million, so I don't blame them lol.
Can you imagine winning their MegaBucks and claiming it anonymously?
No one in Wisonsin or anywhere would know you won!
Just quietly collect your winnings and move on...no drama.
(I mention that because so many players on this forum are concerned with privacy/media when
it comes to big jackpot winnings)
The smaller prizes, they'll just cut you a check and mail it to you but the bigger ones you have to go to
Massachusetts main office to cliam it. Their smaller prizes are good too, get $2 for three numbers with WI,
theirs you get a free ticket, WI MegaBucks 5 numbers you win $500, Massachusetts $1,500.
Don't know if you get two sets of numbers for a $1 or one set of numbers, I forgot to ask the lady on
the phone more about the game, don't know if you can pick your own numbers or are Season Tickets quick
picks? Didn't think of asking all of those questions till later. I did private message someone on the forum who
has posted about buying Massachusettes season tickets and asked how all of that worked but I don't think
that member as been here in a while.
Figured I'll start playing both, I'm gonna win me a MEGABUCKS one way or the other LOL!!
