Do 2 numbers win on Mega Millions?

No- If you haven’t matched the Mega Ball then you need to match at least 3 numbers to win a prize. If you have matched the Mega Ball then that in its own right will win you a prize, with matching any main numbers on top of this increasing your payout amount.

What are the Cash Lump sum and annuity options?

The advertised jackpot amounts for Mega Millions are paid over 30 years as an annuity. The winner would receive a first payment and then a single, increasing payment every year over 30 years until the full prize has been paid out. The Cash lump sum option is just taking all the money that is in the prize pool as a one-time payment right there and then.

The annuity option is a higher amount as it is calculated by taking what would be the cash lump sum amount and then what interest and investment returns the amount would generate over a 30-year period. Most jackpot winners choose to take the cash lump sum, but both options have their pros and cons.
