There are nine different prize categories in that US lottery, and you can get a prize even if you match just the Mega Ball. To win the Mega Millions jackpot you need to match the whole winning combination. The jackpot starts from $40 million and has no maximum cap which means it continues to grow from draw to draw until someone snatches the top prize. Find other rules on the Mega Millions Help page.
