I am suprised that more people didn't match 5 numbers with such a low range of numbers that came out. But I guess the three consecutive numbers played a roll in that. Sucky for California winners....this is when the para-mutual payout is a real big disadvantage to the player. A usual $250,000 prize only nets you a little over $60,000.

Sometimes it works out that way. But it evens out over time.

I agree with what CA is doing with the 5/5 prize. One time, players win only 60K, but one time they win 1.4 Million. It's kind of a mini progressive CA is doing with 5/5 in MM.
