Players can buy Mega Millions online through one of the following lottery agents:

  2. WinTrillions Mobile

  4. PlayHugeLottos

If you're playing the lottery, here are three things you need to do:

  1. Sign your ticket. Lottery tickets can be cashed by whoever is in possession of the winning ticket. However, your signature can offer you protections in case someone else turns in your ticket.
  2. Speak to lawyers, accountants, and financial advisors. Most lottery winners go broke within a few years. Guard your financial windfall so that you don't follow the same fate.
  3. Six states allow you to remain anonymous: Delaware, Kansas, Maryland, North Dakota, Ohio, and South Carolina.

Biggest Mega Millions Jackpots

Mega Millions' biggest jackpots in history are as follows:

  • $656 million: March 2012
  • $390 million: March 2007
  • $380 million: January 2011
  • $336 million: August 2009
  • $330 million: August 2007

If the current jackpot of $636 million rolls over (i.e., no winner until after Christmas), the top prize will likely exceed $1 billion. It would then become North America's biggest ever lottery prize.
