How to Play Megabucks

The Flagship game of Oregon Lottery - Megabucks!
Oregon Megabucks was the first-ever in-house jackpot game introduced by the Oregon Lottery in 1985. The game became the first US Lottery to offer its players a choice of lump sum and annuity after winning a lottery prize. Since its introduction, the game has been widely played and is quite popular among the people of Oregon for the jackpot and the odds to win offered by the lottery. The jackpot for the game starts at $1,000,000 and keeps on rolling until someone bags the top prize against some really favorable odds of 1 in 6,135,756.
