The only way to have any chance at winning the Mega Millions lottery is to play the game, but there is no way to guarantee a win.

About This Article

To win the Mega Millions, start by purchasing more than 1 ticket at a time to increase your chances of winning. Then, choose a completely different set of numbers for each ticket to maximize your odds of winning at least 1 of the smaller prizes. When picking your 5 main numbers, choose an even mix of odd and even numbers, since winning combinations of all even or odd strings are extremely rare. Additionally, combine high and low numbers so that 2 or 3 numbers are between 1 through 38, and the rest are between 38 through 75. For more advice, including how to improve your odds of winning with “hot” and “cold” numbers, keep reading.
