Megaplier is a special feature that allows a winner to multiply the original prize amount. Megaplier players can multiply their Mega Millions prizes by 2, 3, 4, or 5 times (does not include the jackpot). The Megaplier number is picked at random before each draw. A player must choose the Megaplier option when they buy their Mega Millions ticket. Selecting the Megaplier option costs an additional $1 per game.
