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...

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.
