What defines a winning combination in one lottery system may not be in another. But do we know which lottery games we have the best chance of winning? How do we win them?

### How do you win at Powerball?

As long as the numbers are correct, the sequence of the first five Powerball numbers doesn't matter, and you will get a cash prize for it. However, the major jackpot requires a correct Powerball guess, which is an additional 1 in 26 chance. In short, to win the Powerball Jackpot, match all five white balls and the red Powerball.

Picking just the Powerball will get you $4, so for a $2 bet, you have a one-in-twenty-six chance of seeing a profit on your investment.

### How do you win Mega Millions?

The jackpot is won if a person's five numbers drawn plus the "Mega Ball" match those in the drawing. Of course, there are other prizes besides the jackpot.

Officials have stated that if a player gets all five numbers except for the "Mega Ball," they may win $1 million. Depending on how many numbers you get right, you could win a consolation prize of anything from $2 to $10,000.

In Illinois, players can add a $1 "Megaplier" to their $2 ticket, which doubles the payout of any non-jackpot reward, including hitting all five digits in the drawing.

### How do you win EuroJackpot?

Each ticket for the drawing will have five main numbers (1-50) and two Euro numbers (1-12). Given that the Euro numbers are picked from a different ball machine, it is probable for the same number to appear in both the primary and Euro number draws.

To win the jackpot, you need to match both the main five digits and the two Euro digits. Matching as few as three numbers will get you a prize, which starts at about €6 for matching two main numbers and one Euro number.

### How do you win EuroMillions

To win the EuroMillions jackpot, players must select seven numbers (5 ordinary numbers and 2 "lucky stars"). The two lucky stars cannot be combined with the normal numbers, however, the five regular digits can be in any order. The regular numbers go from 1 to 50, whereas the Lucky Stars go from 1 to 12.

You can win a prize by matching as few as three numbers, with the lowest possible payout of €4 for matching 1 ordinary number and 2 lucky stars.
