The past masters of fortune serve as an exciting reminder of what awaits the victor. Last March, one fortunate individual in New Jersey had their wildest dreams come true as they became the first Mega Millions jackpot winner of the year, bagging an eye-watering $1.13 billion.

May 21 saw the Mega Millions drawing feature a ticket displaying the winning numbers eight, two, five, twenty-eight, and sixty-nine, with a Megaball number of fourteen. The Megaplier drawn was two times, an option that, if selected by a player for an additional dollar, can inflate non-grand prize winnings by two, three, four, or even five times. Selecting the Megaplier option amplifies not only the amount at stake but also the heart-thumping excitement of playing.

When it comes to participating in the Mega Millions, aspirants will need six numbers: five white balls, numbered one through seventy, and one gold Mega Ball, numbered one through twenty-five. If the odds seem daunting, you can always opt for a “Quick Pick” or “Easy Pick” where the computer generates random numbers for you.

As for where one can join this gamble of dreams, tickets are sold in local grocery stores, conveniently located gas stations, or bustling corner stores. In several states, tickets are also available online. In fact, the official digital lottery courier of the USA TODAY Network, Jackpocket, is a platform that allows eager players in select states and territories, including Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Ohio, Oregon, Texas, Washington D.C., West Virginia, and even Puerto Rico, to purchase tickets with ease from their home or mobile device.

As expectations build for the forthcoming draw, a reminder of the close-knit world of past winners, and how to join their illustrious ranks, hangs in the air, creating a tangible frisson of excitement for the lucky player who may soon find themselves on cloud nine.
