Oregon Megabucks Overview

Oregon Megabucks gives lottery fans in the state an opportunity to become a millionaire three times a week.

In each draw, six numbers are randomly selected between 1 and 48. There are four different ways to win, from matching three numbers to matching all six. The jackpot starts at $1 million and keeps climbing until it is won, usually increasing by $100,000 at a time. There is no limit to how high the grand prize can reach. The cost of a ticket is $1, which gives you two lines of numbers. It is not possible to just play one line for $0.50.

You also have the option to add Kicker to your ticket for an additional $1. This boosts the value of all prizes below the jackpot. The prizes for matching three or four numbers are increased by four times their original value, while the Match 2 prize with Kicker is $4 rather than a free ticket.

Oregon Megabucks History

Megabucks has been played in Oregon since it was introduced in November 1985. In 1990, it became the first U.S. lottery to give jackpot winners a choice over whether to take the money as a cash lump sum or an annuity. The largest payout in history was a $30 million win that went to Arthur Brenner, from Portland, on November 15, 2004. One of the most famous winners was a player from Iraq who used online service theLotter and walked off with a jackpot worth $6.4 million in November 2016.
