Oregon Megabucks Payout and Mechanics
Rules are simple: Simply choose 6 numbers from a pool of 48, and take home the jackpot if you match them all. Jackpots start at $1,000,000 and continue to roll until someone wins. Secondary prizes are also awarded for matching fewer numbers.
The Kicker
The Kicker is Oregon Megabucks’ answer to the likes of Powerball’s Power Play or Megamillion’s Megaplier. Essentially, if you add the $1 Kicker to your purchase, it allows secondary prizes to be multiplied by up to four times. For example, if you win in a prize tier that offers $4,000, applying the Kicker would net you $16,000.

Megabucks Prize Claiming
Winners must choose between a lump sum or annuity payout. Going for the lump sum option means you’ll be paid all your winnings—around a half of the advertised jackpot—in one single transaction. Meanwhile, going for the annuity option means your winnings will be paid out to you in installments over the course of 30 years.
You have a total of 60 days to make your decision, and if you fail to make your choice before the deadline, your prize will automatically be paid out as an annuity. That said, there are some cases wherein Oregon Megabucks officials may allow you to switch to a lump sum payout scheme—so long as payments have not been made out to you.
Also note that prizes are not taxfree and are subjected to local and federal taxes. Plus, if you played using an online lottery agent service, you may have to settle other fees as well (depending on the service you used). More than that, if you live outside the United States, you may also have to deal with your local tax laws.

Oregon Megabucks History and Facts
The Oregon Lottery began when an amendment to the Oregon Constitution enabled its existence. During the 1984 general elections, it was approved by voters. It is run by the state and is a part of the MultiState Lottery Association (or MUSL), and has introduced a multitude of games over the years.
One of those games is the Oregon Megabucks, which was one of the first games they introduced in 1985. Not long after its introduction, the Oregon Megabucks added lump sum and annuity payout options in 1990—the first USbased lottery game to have done so at the time. Over the years it has become the flagship game of the Oregon Lottery, and is usually advertised or referred to as “Oregon’s Game”.
Here’s some more interesting tidbits about the game:
 The Oregon Megabucks has produced more than 250 millionaires in its existence.
 The winner of the $6.8 million jackpot on November 26, 2016 is actually a player from Iraq. The winner used the services of theLotter to purchase his ticket from the comfort of his home. Unsurprisingly, his big win made huge waves in the industry—which helped bolster theLotter’s credibility as the leading lottery agent service even further.
 The winner of the $5.9 million jackpot in March 11, 2017, Bob Frost, bagged his big win via a free ticket he won from an earlier draw.
 Oregon Lottery officials claim that an alarming amount of Oregon Megabucks players don’t claim their winnings. In fact, for the fiscal year of 2015, a whopping $5.9 million in unclaimed prizes were recorded.
 Oregon Megabucks funds go to public education, programs that cultivate economic development, and natural resource programs.
