Oct. 18, 2013 – The North Dakota Lottery is helping players get used to the new Mega Millions, so once the big changes take effect Saturday, the Lottery will be giving Mega Millions players an extra chance to win instant prizes with their “Mega Dash” promotion.
The month-long promotion will begin Saturday, following the final Mega Millions drawing under the old format. During the Mega Dash promotion, the Lottery will be giving away $20,000 in instant prizes when players purchase their Mega Millions tickets.
Players who buy five Mega Millions tickets with Megaplier during the Mega Dash promotion will have a chance to win instant prizes from $5 up to $500. To be eligible for the chance to win instant prizes, players must spend $10 on five Mega Millions plays with Megaplier.
Mega Dash instant prizes will be awarded at random; instant-win tickets will be printed with a “Congratulations” from the North Dakota Lottery, and the instant-win prize amount.
Mega Dash winnings can be redeemed at any Lottery retailer, or can be mailed to the North Dakota Lottery. Players must redeem any Mega Dash prizes within 90 days of winning.
After playing for the instant win with Mega Dash, Mega Millions players will find they have great odds on the new Mega Millions. Each ticket has 1 in 15 odds of winning any of the game’s prizes, because there will be only 15 Mega Balls.
The upcoming changes to Mega Millions were designed to create larger and faster-growing jackpots with more winners of smaller prizes. Check out this post for more about the upcoming changes, and “Mega Dash” down to your North Dakota Lottery retailer for a chance to win instant cash prizes.
