About the Massachusetts Lottery

The Massachusetts Lottery was first established back in 1971, intended to generate revenue for local cities and towns. The first ticket was sold on 22 March 1972 and since then Lottery proceeds have passed the $131 billion mark. Of that, $28 billion has been used for local aid and an additional $7.5 billion has been paid in commission to state retailers selling the tickets.

Massachusetts Lottery Games and Drawing Schedules

Mega Millions

Mega Millions is a multi-state lottery game enjoyed all over the US.  Mega Millions players select five numbers 1 to 70 and one Mega Ball number 1 to 25. The Mega Millions jackpot varies but will be at least $40 million for matching five numbers plus the Mega Ball. In Mega Millions, there are eight other prize tiers available and these are eligible for the Megaplier, which multiplies your winnings up to 5x, and costs an extra $1 to play. Mega Millions draws take place on Tuesdays and Fridays at 11:00pm.


Another hugely popular multi-state game available with the Massachusetts Lottery is Powerball. Unlike Mega Millions, powerball runs every Monday, Wednesday and Saturday at 10:59pm and costs $2 to play. Players choose five numbers 1 to 69 and one Powerball number 1 to 26. Players need to match all these numbers to hit the jackpot, which is at least $20 million  —  the record Powerball Lottery jackpot in January 2016 was $1.586 billion, shared between three tickets. Non-jackpot prizes can also be multiplied up to 10x if you add the Power Play for an extra $1.

Mass Cash

Mass Cash lottery games cost just $1 and involve choosing five numbers 1 to 35. The rules are simple enough — match three numbers to win $10, four numbers to win $250, and all five numbers to win the $100,000 jackpot. Mass Cash is a daily game with draws taking place at 9:47pm.

The Numbers Game

Mass Lottery Numbers Game takes place twice daily and ticket prices start from just $0.25. Players choose four numbers up to 9 and can play in multiple different ways. For example, you can win prizes for matching the exact numbers, or for having pairs or no duplicates.

Megabucks Doubler

There is a $5.4 million jackpot up for grabs for matching all six numbers in Megabucks Doubler. A $1 ticket gains you entry to this lottery with extra prizes available for matching three, four and five numbers. What’s more, tickets labelled ‘Doubler tickets’ double any non-jackpot prizes. Megabucks Doubler draws take place every Wednesday and Saturday at 10:50pm.

Lucky for Life

If one-off jackpots aren’t your thing you’ll love Lucky for Life  —  there’s a top prize of $1,000 a day for life up for grabs. You’ll need to match five regular numbers plus the Lucky Ball for the top prize. If you just match the five regular numbers, you’ll win $25,000 a year for life. The prizes go down another eight tiers with one-off cash sums. There’s a chance to win on Lucky for Life every day at 10:38pm.

All or Nothing

All or Nothing is a lottery game offering great flexibility  —  you choose twelve numbers 1 to 24 and can wager between $1 and $10. What’s more, there are eleven different ways to win and you can add the All or Nothing Bonus to double the price of your wager and multiply your prize up to 10 times. All or Nothing is an interesting game as the $100,000 jackpot is paid out to players who match either twelve or zero numbers, seeing as there are so few numbers to choose from.
