Following the world record $656 million jackpot that brought the USA Mega Millions to global attention back in March, people are clamouring to find out more about the world’s richest weekly lottery and the first question they always ask is “Can I play?” The simple answer is yes, you can.
While it may only be available officially in the USA, there are numerous ways you can get in on the action the next time there’s a Mega Millions rollover. And history suggests this won’t be too long as the jackpot goes over $100 million three times a year on average.
Look on the internet and it won’t take you long to find a site offering overseas lottery tickets. The way they work is actually very simple – You place your order and an agent in the country where the lottery is sold, the USA in this case, will go out and buy the ticket on your behalf. Responsible operators will then print your name on the ticket, send you a scanned copy via email and let you know when you win.
Some operators, such as WinTrillions.com, also run online syndicates, giving players a share in a set number of tickets, which means more chance to win the jackpot prize. These might incorporate just one lottery game, such as Mega Millions, or they may combine 2 or more lotteries into a single syndicate. Either way, it’s a simple way to enhance your winning potential and make your money go further.
Like all lotteries, Mega Millions is a game of chance and there’s no guarantee that you’ll win, but you can enhance your chances. If playing in a syndicate isn’t for you, then always use Quick Picks to select your numbers. This ensures that you have a good spread of numbers, plus you’ll avoid the most obvious selections, such as birthdays and door numbers. This means that if you do hit the jackpot, you should enjoy a larger share.
If you want to play Mega Millions, or any other lottery outside your own country, do your research and choose the right website to play through, then you can sit back and enjoy the experience of playing.
