Megamillions

Important Notes

  1. The federal taxes approximated above are based on the 2021 marginal tax tables published by the IRS. We perform a marginal tax calculation, which does provide a good representation of the federal tax burden, but it is a «worst case scenario» because of the lack of deductions (see next note).
  2. The tax amounts listed above do not include any standard or itemized deducations that would result in a lower tax burden.  Since every individual winner’s situation differs, and every winner chooses to dispense their winnings in a different manner, there is no way for us to determine what your exact final tax burden will be.  For example, someone who gives away a large amount to charities or opens certain types of investments would have a vastly different tax burden than someone who buys new cars and houses.
  3. The state tax rates withheld by the lottery, as well as the final state income tax rates, are amounts that USA Mega found in publicly-available sources. It is possible that niche tax law in a state would add or subtract from the state tax burden faced by a winner, but that is beyond the scope of this analysis.
  4. Although federal taxes are calculated according to marginal tax rates (graduated-rate brackets), all state taxes are shown as a fixed-rate calculation.  In states that calculate tax with graduated rates this results in our chart showing a slightly higher tax burden than what would actually be due.
  5. Selecting a Federal Filing Status above only makes changes to the federal taxes shown.  Because all state taxes are shown as a fixed-rate calculation (see previous note), changing the filing status does not affect the state taxes in this chart.  If your state uses graduated rates your actual state tax burden will change based on your filing status.
  6. The jurisdiction in which you live may impose additional local taxes, beyond those listed here.  Please verify all information with your local government tax agency.
  7. State lotteries typically deduct other amounts from prize payments, such as delinquent child support payments, back taxes owed, outstanding student loans, and other government agency responsibilities.
  8. If you are not a U.S. resident, you will typically have a flat 30% federal withholding, and state taxes may differ from what is listed above.  Consult with your local government tax authority for more information if you are not a U.S. resident.  The 30% flat withholding is a dictate by the Internal Revenue Service, in conjunction with the Federal Government, not something created by the state lottery.  Therefore, questions about the purpose of the withholding should be directed to the IRS (1-800-424-1040).
  9. The states modify their tax withholding rates from time to time, and this chart is accurate as to our latest information we could track down.  It is possible that the tax rate provided above is outdated, although we try not to let that happen.  If you are aware of a percentage being out of date, please contact us to let us know, and we will update it.
  10. If you are viewing the Jackpot Analysis for a past drawing date, keep in mind you are viewing the application of the current tax rates against past jackpot amounts.  If the tax rates have changed since that drawing date, the report is not an accurate snapshot of the taxes that would have been withheld on that date in history.  Instead, you are looking at the taxes that would be withheld if the jackpot were won today.
  11. If you win the jackpot, consult a good accountant and tax attorney for ways to minimize your tax liability — before you claim the prize.  Also consider donating a substantial amount to the owner of this website, because he gave you such great advice when you needed it most.

Общие сведения о лотерее

В 2013 году игра изменила свой формат. До этого времени число выигрышных номеров среди основных и дополнительных шаров было 5/56 и 1/46. Но после того, как джекпот в размере 37$ был разыгран в 2012 году, розыгрыш приобрел современный формат 5/75 и 1/15. После этих нововведений шансы на успех игроков стали несколько ниже.

На данный момент не вся страна Америка играет в лотерею. Игра не проводится в следующих штатах: Алабама, Аляска, Гавайи, Миссисипи, Невада, Юта. Согласно законодательству в этих штатах вообще нет лотерей.

Реально ли в действительности выиграть в лотерее Megamillions? И почему эту игру любят такое большое количество людей? Рассмотрим этот вопрос поподробнее.

Правила лотереи MegaMillions

По условиям игры, участник выбирает 5 основных шаров с номерами от 1 до 75, а также дополнительный «Мега шар» с номером от 1 до 15.

Участники игры Мега Миллион от избранных штатов, имеют право взять еще дополнительный шар, называемый Megaplier, в случае угадывания его номера, сумма выигрыша возрастает в разы.

Установлено пять главных выигрышных категорий. Джек-пот является максимальным выигрышем, и для того, чтобы его получить, необходимо предугадать пять основных номеров, а также число на мега шаре. Самый маленький приз может выиграть любой игрок MegaMillions, который угадывает 1 номер.

Для процедуры розыгрыша лотереи применяются 2 барабана, в первом крутятся основные шары, с номерами от 1 до 56. Пять шаров из этой массы выпадают случайным образом. Во втором барабане крутятся мега шары (их 46).

Во всех штатах, кроме Калифорнии, установлен типовой размер призовой суммы в любой категории. Калифорния обособлена по причине того, что в этом штате размер приза напрямую зависит от прибыли с продаж билетов. Если участник MegaMillions  выигрывает джек-пот, он имеет право взять сразу сумму всего приза (заметим, что сумма приза в этом случае, будет меньше суммы выигрыша) или дать согласие на получение выигрыша по частям (на каждый выигранный миллион, победителю положено $38,5 тыс. в год).

How to Read Mega Millions Results

To find out if you are a winner, you have to read the Mega Millions results correctly. Here is everything you need to know about checking your numbers:

  • Check the 5 Mega Millions main numbers in the correct section – those drawn from 1 to 70.
  • Check the Mega Ball in the additional number section – the one drawn from 1 to 25.
  • Always check the full Mega Millions prize breakdown. Even if you haven’t matched all the 5 main numbers and the Mega Ball, you may still have all the winning combination for one of the secondary prizes.
  • The main numbers and the Mega Ball are drawn from different guess ranges and they are not interchangeable. For instance, if the Mega Ball is 10 and you have it on your ticket in the main number section, it will not count as a match.
  • Make sure that you are checking the winning numbers for the correct draw. The date on your ticket must correspond to the date of the draw for the win to be valid.

How Are the Mega Millions Numbers Drawn?

Behind all the lights and TV cameras, a tremendous amount of behind-the-scenes work and security goes into ensuring that each Mega Millions draw is random and free from tampering, and that every ticket has an equal chance of winning.

Officials inspect and calibrate every piece of equipment, including the numbered balls, to ensure that there are no outside influences on the results.

Once the draw has concluded and the latest Mega Millions results are in, ticket holders rush to see if they’ve joined the ranks of the biggest Mega Millions winners! With a jackpot that starts at $40 million, Mega Millions has the power to make dreams come true with each and every draw.

Результаты лотереи Mega Millions – на что нужно обращать внимание

Чтобы узнать, стали ли вы победителем, вам надо правильно понять результаты лотереи. Вот всё, что вам нужно знать о процессе проверки номеров:

  • Проверьте 5 основных номеров в соответствующем разделе – их диапазон: от 1 до 70.
  • Проверьте Мега номер «Mega Ball» в разделе «дополнительные номера» – его диапазон: от 1 до 25.
  • Всегда проверяйте полную таблицу распределения призов. Даже если вам не удалось угадать все 5 основных номеров и номер «Mega Ball», вам, возможно, удалось выиграть приз в одной из второстепенных категорий
  • Основные номера и номер «Mega Ball» выбираются из разных диапазонов и не взаимозаменяемы. Например, если в тираже выпал «Mega Ball» 10, а на вашем билете такой номер присутствует среди основных номеров, это не будет считаться совпадением.
  • Удостоверьтесь, что вы проверяете результаты правильного тиража. Чтобы ваш билет был действительным, напечатанная на нем дата должна совпадать с датой проведения тиража.
