HOW TO MULTIPLY WINNINGS WITH MEGAPLIER:

  • For every Mega Millions drawing, a Megaplier of either 2X, 3X, 4X, or 5X will be drawn.
  • If your ticket wins a prize from $2 to $1,000,000 and the Megaplier is added, the prize amount will be multiplied by that drawing’s Megaplier.
    • Examples: If you added Megaplier and your prize is $10 and the Megaplier drawn was 3X, you win $30 ($10 X 3). If you added Megaplier and your prize is $1,000,000 and the Megaplier drawn was 5X, you win $5,000,000 ($1,000,000 X 5).
  • Megaplier does not apply to the JACKPOT.

$120 million winning ticket claimed in WI

It has been approximately a decade since the Wisconsin Lottery debuted Mega Millions in January, 2010. Yet, there were no big Mega Millions jackpot winners until recently.

Adrian Tongson of Racine, WI just came forth to claim the $120 million Mega Millions jackpot sold for the Sept. 15 drawing. A regular Mega Millions player, Tongson did not even check his ticket until weeks after the conclusion of the drawing. Thereupon, he quit his job and now has big plans for the winnings.

Every state has different tax allocation amounts. In Wisconsin, there is a tax rate of up to 7.65% on winning tickets. Tongson opted for the one-time cash option which was approximately $95.4 million. However, after federal along with state taxes, Tongson netted $65.2 million. All in all, a nice payday.
