Mega Millions. Результаты. Как играть

22 октября 2013 года прошел первый тираж игры в современном формате с рекордными, к слову, джекпотами.

Как играть в Мега Миллионы?

Игрок должен выбрать 5 чисел из 75 для обычных белых шаров, далее необходимо сделать ставку на так называемый золотой шар (одно из пятнадцати чисел) . Кроме того, существует опция с Мегапликатором, который увеличивает все выигрыши, кроме джекпота, в пять раз. Например, выиграв 10 тысяч долларов и имея мегапликатор, вы получите все 50 000. Неплохо, не правда ли?

Как выиграть джекпот в Мегамиллионы?

Как и в других лотереях, здесь также существует несколько призовых категорий. Давайте рассмотрим, сколько вы можете выиграть и при каком количестве отгаданных чисел. Примеры ниже:

  • 5+0 — 1 млн. долларов
  • 4+1 — 5 тыс. долларов
  • 4+0 — 500 долларов
  • 3+1 — 50 долларов
  • 3+0 — 7 долларов
  • 2+1 — 5 долларов
  • 1+1 — 2 долларов
  • 0+1 — 1 доллар

***Примечание: первая цифра — это количество угаданных цифр на белых шарах (от до 5), вторая (которая идет после знака «+» — это количество угаданных цифр на золотом шаре (от до 1).

Megamillions — лотерея с рекордными джекпотами

50% от всех продаж идут именно на приз, в отличии от других лотерей, где гораздо меньшая доля собранных денег выделяется для победителей. Выиграть в лотерею не так и сложно, как кажется. Сейчас вы просто читаете эту информацию, но стоит только решиться, купить билет, сделать ставку и… Кто знает, может быть, все ваши мечты воплотятся уже после следующего розыгрыша? Минимальный джекпот составляет 15 миллионов долларов США и увеличивается на 5 млн. после каждой игры, если не был сорван. Последние счастливчики, забравшие всю сумму, были в 2013 году, а лотерея проводится дважды в неделю. Как думаете, какая сейчас сумма джекпота?

Один победитель с одним билетом на руках

Увеличить шансы, купив несколько билетов сразу, можно, и даже рекомендуется. Однако, не стоит заполнять их одинаково. Так как если сразу все ваши билеты получат джекпот, забрать вы сможете, увы, только один максимальный приз. Заполняйте лотерейные билеты по-разному, рискуйте! Если все ваши билеты выиграют какие-то ставки, забрать вы сможете только одну!

Лотерея Мега Миллион. Победители

Джекпот еще ни разу не был сорван в формате 575 и 115, зато однажды в теплом марте 2012 года сразу трое счастливчиков разделили огромный джекпот и получили по 174 миллиона долларов наличными. Выигрыши отправились в Мэриленд, Канзас и Иллинойс. Как думаете, вам по силам сорвать такой джекпот? Просто купите билет и попытайте удачи!

Millionaire Maker and EuroMillions HotPicks

How do you win a Millionaire Maker prize?

You win if the Millionaire Maker code on your ticket matches the winning code selected on the night. The code consists of four letters and five numbers and you must match it exactly with each digit in the same order. At least one code will be drawn alongside each EuroMillions game and the prize for winning is £1 million.

How does EuroMillions HotPicks work?

In EuroMillions HotPicks, you are able to decide how many numbers you want to try and match, from one up to five. You select your numbers from a pool of 1 to 50 and the winning numbers are the same five main balls from the EuroMillions draw. You must match all the numbers you choose to win the associated prize; you can win £10 for matching just one number or £1 million for matching all five. Go to the EuroMillions HotPicks page to find out more.

What to Do About Tax Issues

When you win a large lottery prize in the UK, you will have the chance to speak to experienced advisors who have guided other lucky players through what to do with their newfound wealth. They will be able to point you in the direction of financial experts and will recommend the most appropriate banks for you to open an account with based on your own circumstances.

With regards to the issue of IHT, it is a good idea to think carefully about the timing of any gifts you plan to make, and then keep a record of any payments. Your financial advisor will also speak to you about the tax on your interest and discuss possible investments to give you the maximum benefit. It may be a complicated topic, but any advice you receive will be tailored to your own personal situation and one very positive aspect is that your prize will not be subject to the same sort of tax laws as it would be in other countries.

Prize Information

How do you win prizes?

You win prizes by matching the numbers you select to the winning numbers drawn. There are 13 different prize tiers, and you can win prizes just by matching two main numbers. To win the jackpot, you must match all five main numbers and both Lucky Stars.

Does the jackpot roll over if there’s no winner?

The jackpot starts at a minimum of €17 million (approximately £15 million) and rolls over if there is not a winner. However, the jackpot can only go up to a maximum of €200 million. Once it reaches that level, it is capped and can only stay at €200 million for four draws at the most. In the next draw (the fifth one at €200 million), the jackpot must be won and the money will be shared between players in the highest winning tier if there are no Match 5 + 2 winners.

How much of the money from ticket sales goes towards prizes?

Fifty percent of the money you spend on a ticket is returned to players as prize money. A percentage of this prize fund is then allocated to each of the 13 prize categories. This is known as a pari-mutuel prize structure, so the prizes are not fixed and vary from draw to draw depending on how many tickets are sold and the number of winners.

The money that is not given to the prize fund is distributed in a number of different ways – with 28 percent going to good causes, 12 percent to the UK Government as Lottery Duty and five percent to retailers as commission. The remaining five percent covers operating costs and profit for the lottery operator.

How do you claim prizes?

The method for claiming prizes depends on how you play and how much you win. If you play online, smaller amounts will be transferred straight into your lottery account, but you must contact the National Lottery for anything larger than £30,000. If you buy a paper ticket, you must visit an authorised retailer for awards up to £100. You can go to a National Lottery Post Office or claim by mail if you win up to £50,000, but you must claim larger amounts in person. Take a look at the page on Claiming EuroMillions Prizes for more details.

What happens to prize money before it’s claimed?

When a prize is waiting to be claimed, it is held in trust managed by Law Debenture rather than a Camelot bank account. Any interest that accrues during this time is transferred to the Good Causes Fund – but is first used to pay various fees. These include Law Debenture’s trustee fees and fees owed to external auditors, along with bank charges and tax.

Good Causes by Country

View information about Good Causes for the following EuroMillions countries:

UK

In the UK, 28p from every £1 spent on National Lottery games, including EuroMillions, is set aside for good causes. More than £40 billion has been raised since the National Lottery began, with over £30 million per week being added to the Good Causes Fund.

More than half a million awards have been granted to projects across the UK, and the figure keeps rising sharply each year. The funds collected are distributed by a number of bodies, covering four main categories – Sports, Arts, Heritage, and Health Education, Environment and Charitable Causes.

The money is split proportionally as set out by the Department for Culture, Media and Sport:

Austria

Österreichische Lotterien, which runs EuroMillions in Austria, has been sponsoring good causes under the motto of ‘good for Austria’ since 1986. Austria’s Olympic and Paralympic Committees have been backed by funds raised through lottery games in Austria. A range of other humanitarian and research projects have also benefited, while money has been raised to help the protection of pandas, lynx and bearded vultures.

Belgium

The Belgian National Lottery is committed to helping various good causes and offers grants and sponsorships to a host of projects. A total of €185.3 million was made available for public service grants in 2016, split between 61.95% for humanitarian and social work, 27.44% for donations to the community, 6.5% for culture, 2.92% for sport and 1.19% for science.

France

Française des Jeux, the French National Lottery, is committed to developing athletes with sponsorship programmes, providing social support through sport and helping disabled people access sports. It achieves these aims through funds from games like EuroMillions, which are distributed by the lottery’s foundation. The company also sponsors the Française des Jeux professional cycling team, which was founded in 1997.

Ireland

More than €5 billion has been raised for good causes since the Irish National Lottery began in 1987, and approximately 30% of the funds generated from games such as EuroMillions are donated to worthy projects. The money is distributed across the country, supporting local initiatives and larger organisations such as the CROCUS Centre for people with cancer, the Dyslexia Association and the Asthma Society.

Luxembourg

The net profit on all Luxembourg lottery games, including EuroMillions, is donated to good causes in the fields of health, sport, culture, social issues and the environment. The Nationale Grande-Duchesse Charlotte is responsible for distributing the grants on behalf of the lottery and has awarded almost €220 million to date, with beneficiaries including the Luxembourg Red Cross, the National Cultural Fund.

Portugal

The Portuguese Department of Games runs lotteries such as EuroMillions and donates the majority of net income to government departments who distribute the funds in the areas of health, sport, culture and social issues. Of the money provided for beneficiaries across Portugal and its islands, 28% is pledged to Santa Casa Misericordia de Lisboa, a charity dating from the 15th century which runs hospitals and other health centres, as well as supporting a wide range of other projects.

Spain

Loterias y Apuestas del Estado allocates its profits to an array of good causes devoted to social issues, sport, culture, education and the environment. Some of the charitable organisations to benefit from funds from EuroMillions and other lottery games are the Spanish Association Against Cancer, the Olympic Sports Association and San Ildefonso Primary School.

Switzerland

There are two official lottery operators in Switzerland — Swisslos and Loterie Romande. Swisslos supports national sports programmes such as the Olympic team and youth development in football, whilst also focusing on the German-speaking cantons of Switzerland and Ticino across sectors such as culture, sport, social issues and the environment. Loterie Romande provides support for good causes in the French-speaking cantons, benefiting the areas of sport, social action, education, health, culture, research, heritage, the environment and tourism.
