Wisconsin's Megabucks With EZ Match
Wisconsin's Megabucks is a "Pick 6" lottery draw game held twice each week. The game was formerly known as "Wisconsin's Very Own Megabucks". Lottery customers get two plays for one-dollar ($1) and also have the option of buying EZ Match numbers for an additional $1 per ticket. Megabucks prizes range from two-dollars ($2) to the jackpot, which is always at least one million dollars ($1,000,000) if you choose the annuity of twenty-five (25) yearly payments. If no players match all six numbers the jackpot will roll over, and increase for the next draw. The amount the jackpot increases is based on the number of tickets sold. The bigger it gets, the faster it grows as excitement builds and ticket sales increase.
Nearly fifty-four percent (53.5%) of Megabucks sales are returned to players in prizes over time. EZ Match returns about sixty-three percent (63.1%) to players. You can play Megabucks alone or add EZ Match for a chance to win any or all five additional prizes instantly.
Proceeds from the Wisconsin Lottery go toward property tax relief for state residents. You need to be at least 18 years of age to play any lottery games or to redeem winning tickets.

Tickets are available at any retailer with a terminal who displays the Wisconsin Lottery sign.
To play the optional EZ Match game simply mark the box or ask the retailer to include it with your Quick Pick. EZ Match is not available for play on its own, you must buy a Megabucks ticket to play. When you select EZ Match, five prize amounts and numbers will be printed on your Megabucks ticket. If any or all EZ Match numbers match the numbers you picked, win the prize associated with that number. Numbers and prizes are generated randomly. There are seven (7) prize categories ranging from $1 to $250. Five numbers and prizes will appear on your ticket. Each match is a winner so you can instantly win up to five separate prizes.
Drawings occur as soon as possible after the end of ticket sales each Wednesday and Saturday. Tickets need to be purchased before 9:00 pm on the day of the drawing.
