US Powerball vs. Mega Millions

At the beginning of last year the world saw with wonder that 3 lucky winners took a magnificent prize of 1,500 million dollars. Powerball finally made history with a $ 1 trillion prize!

Powerball had broken a record previously imposed by its competition, the Mega Millions lottery. Before this incredible prize was won, Mega Millions had delivered the biggest prize for 656 million dollars. That prize would also have been shared among 3 winners, in March 2012.


What are the official rules of American lotteries?

Both have a similar format. You choose 5 main numbers and a bonus number. For Powerball, these 5 numbers come from a set of 1 to 69 and the Powerball between 1 and 26.

For Mega Millions, the game consists of choosing 5 numbers from a possible 75, including an extra number between 1 and 15. The extra number is known as Mega number, too.

Each lottery has 9 levels of prizes depending on how many numbers you get in each draw. Logically, the more numbers you succeed, the greater your prize.

Which lottery offers the best prizes?

16 of the lottery prizes ever won in lottery history come from the Mega Millions and Powerball. The biggest record prize ever awarded is that of Powerball for $ 1580 million, won on January 13, 2016. Before this happened, the Mega Millions had been the largest lottery in the world, for 4 consecutive years.

Which of the lotteries gives you more chances to win?

So, in conclusion, what is the game that stays in the header?

Both are very similar. Each lottery comes with its own advantages and disadvantages. These are rivals for some reason!
