The Draw You're Betting On
Mega Millions uses 2 machines known as Criterion II to draw out the lucky balls. All equipment used is vigorously screened and preened before each draw to make sure everything is entirely random and fair.
The first machine releases five Main Number balls (1 – 70) before the second drops out one golden Mega Ball (1 – 25) to finish off the winning combination.
