You Could Be the First Lottery Billionaire!

All it takes is one dollar, six winning numbers and beating the odds of one in 258,890,850.

My best advice is to buy one Mega Millions ticket. If God has ordained that you will win this huge jackpot, you can win it with one ticket. As the slogan goes, “You Gotta Be In It to Win It.” With one ticket you are in it and your chances are as good as anyone else’s.

Since the first Mega Millions drawing of the new 5/75 + 1/15 game format on October 22, 2013, there have been 16 drawings. It takes 15 drawings to use every one of the 75 numbers. But so far, 22 virgin numbers have not been drawn. They are numbers 04, 10, 18, 21, 28, 31, 34, 37, 38, 39, 40, 46, 48, 55, 56. 58, 61, 66, 68, 69. 72, 73. Each drawing one or more of those numbers will win.

Of the 15 Mega Ball numbers, these five virgins have not been drawn: 04, 06, 09, 10, 11. Mega Ball 03 has won three times; and Mega Balls 02, 07, 08,15 have won twice each.

Did you know that you have a better chance of winning $100,000 in your state’s cash-5 game than winning a measly $5,000 in Mega Millions? The odds of winning the jackpot in a cash 5/39 game are one in 575,757. Compare that to the odds of one in 739,688 of winning $5,000 in Mega Millions. So, my advice is to seriously use my Smart Luck strategies and wheeling systems on your local cash 5 game and just spend a dollar on Mega Millions.

Mega Millions Changes

Beginning with the October 22, 2013 drawing, Mega Millions has a new format! The game has drastically changed from the old 5/56+1/46 format to a new 5/75+1/15 game. The odds for the game are now 1 in 258.9 million, up from 1 in 175 million prior to the change. Tickets for Mega Millions remain $1 per play.

The great thing about Smart Luck software is that the specific number format does not change the strategy formulas or wheels, so the software will still work with this game. All you need to do is download our new updated history files for Mega Millions, and Advantage Plus can create charts for the new game. Pick-5 wheels will still work the same for this game, and you can mark your mega balls separately on your tickets.

Updated free lotto tips: How to win the New Mega Millions Game

If you want to set up a new game file yourself instead of downloading ours, you can do so with these instructions.

Using Wheel Five Gold for 75 numbers: If you are still using the old Mega Millions history file, you won't be able to wheel numbers higher than 56 in Wheel Five Gold. To get the right range automatically, download and select the new history file. Without the new file, to wheel more numbers, from the select history drop down, click on a state name (not a game) and there will be a button at the bottom left of the window that says "No Lotto". Click "No Lotto". Then, when you go to make a wheel, click the "Range" button to change the range to 75.
