Can non-US citizens play? What if a non-US citizen wins?

Yes, non-US citizens can legally play, and non-US citizens are eligible to win any prize offered in the game.

If a non-US citizen wins, they would claim their prize in the same manner that a US citizen would, but the taxes withheld would be different. For example, federal withholding for non-US citizens is a flat 30%.  Also, individual states may have different tax structures for non-US citizens than they do for US citizens.  Depending on which country the person is a legal resident of, there also may be tax treaties between the US and that other country which could be helpful in offsetting whatever the US tax liabilities are.

In short, non-US citizens can play and win Mega Millions.  If a non-US citizen wins a large prize, they will be responsible for some amount of tax, which in the end will probably be an amount similar to what a US citizen would pay, but there are so many possible variations with international tax codes that you’ll need to consult with a local tax attorney if you need to know a precise amount of tax liability.

Выплата призов Мега Миллионс

Мега Миллионы безумно популярны в первую очередь благодаря своим фантастическим призам! $40 миллионов – минимальный джекпот, который вы можете выиграть. Каждый раз, когда никому не удается угадать все номера тиража, размер первого приза взлетает ещё выше. Именно таким образов он однажды достиг суммы в $1,537 млрд в октябре 2018. Но следующая серия переходов приза может побить этот рекорд!

US$ 165 миллионов


У джекпота Mega Millions нет верхнего предела. Это означает, что он может продолжать расти бесконечно. Но первый приз – не единственный, который вы можете выиграть в Мега Миллионы.

Размер второго приза составляет $1 млн, так что, чтобы стать миллионером вам не обязательно угадывать все номера этой невероятной американской лотереи!

Why is the cash option always a different percentage of the annuity from draw to draw?

If you’re calculating what percentage the cash value is of the annuity, then you’re looking at it backwards. The cash value is the starting point, as it is a direct percentage of ticket sales. Then the annuity amount is calculated from that, based on prevailing interest rates. Since the interest rates are constantly changing, the annuity amount calculated on one day will be a different number than if it is calculated the next day. So when a drawing occurs and the lottery has to estimate the next annuity jackpot, they first estimate the number of tickets that will be sold for the next drawing, which determines what the cash value estimate is (because a fixed percentage of each ticket sold goes toward prizes). Then they finally calculate what the annuity will be based on the current interest rates.

If I should win the jackpot, do I have the option of remaining anonymous as far as the public and the media are concerned?

In most states, lottery winner information is public domain, therefore it is public information. 
Publicized information normally includes the jackpot winner’s name, city, county, game in which they won,
date won, and the amount of the prize.

After you win the jackpot, we recommend seeking the professional guidance of a good lawyer and accountant to see if there are ways of maintaining as much privacy as possible— before contacting the lottery and/or claiming the prize, and possibly even before letting friends or family know.  You may be tempted to yell to the rooftops in glee about your newfound fortune, but you will probably end up regretting that decision once the excitement of the win calms down, and you are left with a continuous stream of lawsuits and requests for money from those who want a piece of your win.

Рекордные джекпоты

Самый большой джекпот лотереи Мега Миллионы, заявленный на уровне $640 миллионов (в случае годовых выплат) на момент розыгрыша или $462 миллиона (наличными), был разыгран 30 марта 2012 года. Первоначальная оценка пятничного тиража (после тиража 27 марта, джекпот которого остановился на уровне $363 миллиона последовательными выплатами) была равна $476 миллионам (позже джекпот вырос до $500 миллионов и снова до $540 миллионов). Быстрые продажи билетов способствовали росту джекпота до $656 миллионов годовыми выплатами и $474 миллинов наличными. Затраты лотереи Мега Миллионов на тиражи, следующие за предыдущим выигрышем джекпота 24 января 2012 года, оцениваются по крайней мере в $1,5 миллиарда. Всего заявили свои права на выигрыш 3 покупателя лотерейных билетов (по одному из Иллинойса, Канзаса и Мэриленда.

Второй по величине джекпот в размере $636 миллионов был разыгран 17 декабря 2013 года. Выигрыш поделили владельцы двух билетов, из Калифорнии и Джорджии.

Третий по размеру джекпот в $390 миллионов был разыгран в тираже от 6 марта 2007 года. 2 игрока, один из Джорджии и один из Нью Джерси, поделили между собой рекордный на тот момент выигрыш. Оба победителя выбрали выплату наличными, разделив между собой $233 миллиона.

Четвёртый по размеру джекпот среди годовых выплат ($380 миллионов) и второй по размеру джекпот наличными ($240 миллионов), был разыгран 4 января 2011 года. Два владельца билетов, один из Пост Фоллс, штат Айдахо, и один из Ифраты, штат Вашингтон, угадали все шесть номеров, получив по $190 миллионов каждый (годовыми выплатами). Оба игрока также решили забрать выигрыш наличными.

Вероятности выигрыша

Вероятность выигрыша можно рассчитать математическим способом. Например, вероятность выигрыша джекпота равняется 1 из C755⋅15{\displaystyle C_{75}^{5}\cdot 15}. (75 вариантов первого шара X 74 варианта второго шара X 73 варианта третьего X 72 варианта четвёртого X 71 вариант пятого)/(5 X 4 X 3 X 2 X 1) или 5! (пять факториал), и полученное число необходимо умножить на 15 (15 возможных вариантов «Мега Шара»). Таким образом, (75 X 74 X 73 X 72 X 71)/(5 X 4 X 3 X 2 X 1) X 15 = 258 890 850. Это число обозначает то, что у одного игрока есть один шанс из 258 890 850 на выигрыш джекпота. Подобным образом шанс на выигрыш приза $1 миллион — 1 из C755⋅1514{\displaystyle C_{75}^{5}\cdot 15/14} = 1 из 18 492 204. Общая вероятность выиграть приз равна 1 из 14,7.

The state lotteries and MUSL (the organization that runs Powerball) are all very firm in their assertion that playing the lottery in any manner over the Internet is illegal.  We are not lawyers and can’t provide legal advice, but we are not so sure about their position.  Their absolute certainty that it is illegal may have more to do with not wanting to lose control of the player interaction, and less to do with a firm legal footing.

When we assess the legality, we look at what has actually happened in court cases.  There have been people in the past who purchased a lottery ticket from an Internet Web site, subsequently won the jackpot, and the lottery attempted to block them from receiving the jackpot.  In each case, the winners took the lottery to court and won.  They received their jackpot as if they walked into a store and purchased a ticket.

You must keep in mind that any type of Internet-based lottery service is not risk-free.  From a legal standpoint, the services are dealing in loopholes in the current law, and the US Congress has taken steps to make those loopholes tighter, particularly in trying to prevent banks and credit cards from allowing Internet payments for lottery services.  But there is a much bigger threat when you use an Internet lottery service: getting ripped off.

By not making a purchase in a store, you may be doing something worse than throwing your money away: you may be helping to keep a scam operation running.  Stay away from anything referring to a «syndicate».  We are not aware of any site using that terminology that is not a scam.  Also beware of sites that state «Insured by ___» at the bottom.  It is like saying «We don’t really buy lottery tickets, but trust us, you’ll get paid if you win.»  Have you ever heard of an insurance company paying out a $200 million Powerball jackpot?  We haven’t.

We do allow some advertising on USA Mega for lottery services.  We recommend that USA residents stay away from such services, and make your purchases in a store.  The ads are directed at non-USA residents, who may not have the online lottery restrictions that exist in the USA.
