Buy Mega Millions Online
One of the places where lotto players can buy Mega Millions lottery tickets online is WinTrillions.com. (Here is their mobile site.) This company is an Internet-based lottery agent and operates on a monthly subscription model. The subscription model means that players cannot buy individual tickets. (See top lottery agents on the web.)
Here is WinTrillions’ official Facebook page.
How and Where to Buy Mega Millions on the Internet
You can play Mega Millions in 45 localities: 43 U.S. states plus the District of Columbia and the U. S. Virgin Islands. However, anyone with access to the Internet and who possess a credit/debit card can purchase Mega Millions lottery tickets.
What happens when you buy Mega Millions tickets through an online lotto agent?
1.) The online lotto agent will keep an electronic copy of your Mega Millions ticket. They’ll buy the ticket from an official retailer.
2.) The agent will notify the player of any cash prizes, including the jackpot.
3.) The lotto agent will coordinate pooling of funds (syndication) if you want to be a part of a group that buys hundreds or thousands of Mega Millions tickets (and increase your chances of winning a big prize).
To learn more, see this article on the difference between buying lottery tickets online versus making the Mega Millions purchase at a bricks-and-mortar store.
(At bricks-and-mortar retailers, Mega Millions is not offered in Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Alabama, Mississippi, Alaska, and Hawaii. However, residents of these states can buy Mega Millions over the web.)
Other Mega Millions Ticket Sellers on the Web
CongaLotto sells tickets of big lotteries in the United States and around the world. The site is owned by the same parent company of WinTrillions (located in South America). Here is CongaLotto’s official Facebook page.
This agent lets you buy individual Mega Millions tickets online in case you don’t want a monthly subscription. For instance, you may only want to make a wager when the jackpot is huge.
CongaLotto also has a syndication group but without as many members as WinTrillions.
Lottosend carries major lotteries from around the world, but mostly from North America and Europe. If you’re looking to buy tickets online, this website is another option.

Purchasing Outside of the U.S.A. | Non-Americans
There are no authorized Mega Millions brick-and-mortar retailers outside of the U.S. You’ll need to either (1) make the purchase within U.S. territory, or (2) have a trusted family member, friend, or relative (who won’t steal the jackpot) make the purchase for you inside U.S. territory, or (3) have an online lottery agent make the lotto purchase on your behalf.
In the event that a non-American (or non-U.S. resident) wins, they are subject to a U.S. federal withholding tax of approximately 30 percent. They may also be subject to additional state taxes, depending on where they claim the prize.
Mega Millions tickets are sold in all U.S. states, except for Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Alaska, Hawaii, Mississippi and Alabama. They are also sold in the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
