There were record low payouts for California in the Sept 27 Mega Millions draw. The low paramutel payouts were most likely because the drawn numbers were birthday numbers.

The payouts for +, 1+, and 2+ matched previous record lows at $1, $2, and $8.

The payouts for 3, 3+, 4, 4+ and 5 set new low records at $6, $111, $119, $4,087, and $67,438.

Good luck,
Jake

You're right about that!

You can check out the prizes for this past drawing (and all others) at USA Mega:

I'd be fuming if I was one of the 5+0 winners, and I lost out on $200,000 that other states awarded.  Of course, the person who won over $1 million with a 5+0 match not too long ago felt the opposite...

Todd,

Minor correction. The other states paid $250,000 for a 5 match.

Good luck,
Jake

I was not saying that the other states award $200,000.  I was saying that the CA winners got about $200,000 less than the other winners -- which is a correct statement.

Pari-mutuel prizes are a double-edged sword. I wouldn't mind if NY paid that way on MM. I plan to by a CA MM ticket next month, along with a Texas Megaplier ticket.

  Pari-mutuel prizes are a cheap out for a lottery.

I don't have a real preference over whether I prefer fixed or parimutuel prizes. The payout % is a much bigger factor.
