And in August 2020, there was a $3 million winning ticket sold in the Virgin Islands," the game's website reads.

    HOW DOES POWERBALL WORK?

    The Powerball website explains: “The Powerball jackpot grows until it is won. Players select five numbers from 1 to 69; and one Powerball number from 1 to 26.

    “Players can multiply non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4, 5 or 10 times with the Power Play® option for an additional $1 per play.

    NOTE: The Match 5 + Power Play prize is always $2 million. The 10X multiplier is only in play when the advertised jackpot is $150 million or less.

    HOW CAN YOU REMAIN ANONYMOUS AFTER WINNING THE LOTTERY?

    TIPS TO PREVENT GETTING SCAMMED (continued)

    The Mega Millions advises:

    • "Never give out personal information or send money unless you verify the company’s or solicitor’s legitimacy.
    • If they offer to wire the “winnings” directly into your bank account, do not give them your bank account information.
    • If you are told that you can “verify” the prize by calling a certain number, that number may be part of the scam. Instead of calling it, you should look up the name of the lottery or organization on your own to find out its real contact information.
    • If you think someone on the phone is trying to scam you, hang up immediately. If you engage them in conversation, your name and contact information could end up on a list that’s shared with other scammers."

    MORE TIPS TO PREVENT GETTING SCAMMED

    • "Be suspicious if an e-mail contains misspellings or poor grammar, or if the person who called you uses poor English.
    • If you are told that you need to keep your “win” confidential, be suspicious.
    • No real lottery tells winners to put up their own money in order to collect a prize they have already won. If you are asked to pay any kind of fee to collect your winnings, you haven’t won.
    • Just because a real lottery is mentioned does not necessarily make it a real prize. Someone may be using the lottery’s name without its permission or knowledge."

    WHAT IS THE MEGAPLIER?

    The Megaplier is designed to "increase non-jackpot prizes by 2, 3, 4 or 5 times; it costs an additional $1 per play. 

    "Before each Mega Millions drawing on Tuesday and Friday nights, the Megaplier is drawn.

    "From a pool of 15 balls, five are marked with 2X, six with 3X, three with 4X and one with 5X. This mix results in the following odds for each of the Megaplier numbers and their associated prize values."

    ARIZONA ADDS THIRD POWERBALL DRAWING

    The Arizona lottery has added in a third drawing every week.

    The additional drawings, which take place on Mondays, will run according to the regular schedule.

    Arizona Lottery Executive Director Gregg Edgar told ABC-15: "Our Powerball players love to pursue that jackpot and this going to give more opportunities for that jackpot to grow faster and larger."
