History of the Massachusetts Lottery
The Massachusetts Lottery sold its first ticket on April 6th, 1972, with seven people winning $50,000 each in "the Game" drawing.
The popular Mass Cash game was introduced in 1991 and the state joined Powerball in 1996. Massachusetts then joined Mega Millions in 2010 and launched the regional Lucky for Life game in 2012. The state introduced a keno game in 2013 that offers players the chance to pick up prizes every four minutes seven days a week!
Buying Massachusetts Lottery Tickets
If you want to play the games offered by the Massachusetts Lottery, then you'll need to travel to the state and purchase tickets from an authorised retailer.
Massachusetts Lottery Games
In addition to the popular Mega Millions, Powerball and Lucky for Life lottery games, Massachusetts offers some great games of its own:
Megabucks Doubler is a 6/49 game that gives players a chance to win impressive jackpot prizes. Drawings take place on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and all you have to do is purchase a ticket for $1 per play and select six numbers from 1 to 49. Match all six numbers drawn and you'll win the jackpot prize!

|Match 4||$100||$200||1 in 1,032||Match 3||$2||$4||1 in 56|

Other great Massachusetts Lottery draw games include Mass Cash, a Match 5 game which has a set jackpot of $100,000, and Numbers, a quick game that offers drawings twice a day.
Instant win games can be purchased at most major retailers and offer players the chance to experience the thrill of victory as soon as they scratch off the ticket cover. Games cost as little as $1 per play and the prizes available can rival those of some draw games. Why not pop into a store today and try one?
Claiming a Massachusetts Lottery Prize
Prizes worth $600 or less can be redeemed at authorized retailers throughout Massachusetts, while any payout worth between $601 and $49,999 can be claimed at the regional offices in Boston, Braintree, New Bedford, Springfield, Woburn or Worcester. If you're really lucky and win $50,000 or more, you'll need to visit the offices in Braintree to make your claim. You'll have one year after the date of the drawing to come forward and pick up your winnings before the prize expires.
Massachusetts taxes of five percent are withheld on all prizes worth more than $600. If you win more than $5,000, both state taxes and a federal tax of 25 percent will be applicable to your prize.
You must be at least 18 years old to play Massachusetts Lottery games.
Want to win a great Megabucks Doubler prize or hit it big in Lucky for Life? You'll need to buy tickets for these games first. You can't win a lottery, raffle or sweepstake that you haven't entered, and anyone who contacts you out of the blue to tell you otherwise is probably setting you up for a lottery scam.
