You do not have to be a resident of the United States to buy tickets for our game from an American lottery store while you are here; visitors are always welcome. Outside of the United States, Mega Millions® tickets are not offered for purchase. Any organisation purporting to sell Mega Millions tickets internationally, whether online or off, is not linked with Mega Millions and is not supported by the business. Because it is against Mega Millions rules for agents representing players from other jurisdictions to purchase tickets, you choose to deal with one of these businesses at your own risk.
