Megabucks Payout and Mechanics

To play Wisconsin Lottery’s Megabucks, players must pick 2 sets of 6 numbers from 1 to 49. Enabling the Quick Pick option lets the computer choose numbers at random. Players can also choose to play the same sets of numbers for up to 8 consecutive draws.

You can play two sets of numbers for $1 per drawing.

For an additional $1 per set of 2 plays, you can activate the EZ Match game mode to win instant cash prizes of up to $250. Upon purchasing your ticket, a set of 5 EZ Match numbers will be printed on your ticket. If any of your chosen numbers match an EZ Match number, you win the prize amount printed next to that number. You can win EZ Match up to 5 times for each ticket.
