What is the Best Lottery Game to Play in Massachusetts?

By Geraldine

Massachusetts offers lottery players plenty of choices when it comes to lottery playing, from multi-state drawing games like Powerball and Mega Millions, instant win games like Quick Hit Pro and even scratch-off tickets that promise millions in returns – but which game would make the best investment in Massachusetts?

The state Lottery Commission has several regulations that dictate how players may wager, from age restrictions to whether online betting is permitted legally. Furthermore, this body sets rules regarding winners collecting their winnings; especially important if lottery winners hail from distant locations that require hiring someone else to collect their cash prize on their behalf.

Massachusetts stands out as a stand-out among US states when it comes to lottery participation, ranking among the top five in terms of revenue generated annually and awards issued since its 50-year existence. Massachusetts Lottery currently generates billions annually and has awarded out over $92 billion worth of prizes since it first launched 50 years ago.

Massachusetts offers more than 100 lottery games for residents to enjoy, most of which are instant win games that offer much larger prize pools than multi-state drawing lotteries. Massachusetts currently hosts 10 or more lotteries with prizes exceeding $10 million; notable examples are 200X, Supreme Millions and Easy $500.

Powerball and Mega Millions provide Massachusetts residents and other participating states an opportunity to win big with Multi-State Lotterie games that allow them to vie for prizes that could surpass $1 billion. Players select five numbers from one list and a gold Mega Ball number from another; additionally, extra money can be spent to purchase the Megaplier that increases non-jackpot winnings up to fivefold.

The Massachusetts Lottery also offers several in-state draw games, such as its popular six-number 6/44 lottery game with its $2 minimum bet and selection of six numbers from 1 to 44. Players may also purchase Mass Cash or Megabucks Doubler tickets which offer lower jackpot prizes but still provide a high chance of success. Although not directly sold online by the Massachusetts Lottery itself, third-party vendor Jackpocket provides residents of Massachusetts a way to purchase lottery tickets through an app; their service was launched here with an advertising campaign featuring appearances at Red Sox radio broadcasts – plans to expand across other states this year are underway!
