why did MM come to california? i don't understand, i think california should drop MM because california is not really a part of the MM family, california to MM is kinda like the long lost relative you never new you had, for one all the ticket sales for california are seperate and the prize amouts are differant california lottery rules are lame stupid pari-mutuel, they should change the prize amouts and make it like all the other states or just drop it. i don't know, what do you guys think, i don't think it will last that long

As long as California continue to contribute their fair share to the jackpot, who cares how they divide up the spoils?

I'm confused. You don't like Mega Million in California. Does your post have a purpose? Is it supposed to stimulate discussion?
BTW- becareful how you use the word "stupid," amoung adults, it is referred to as a "stopper." It immediately attracts the wrong attention.

Down, I think you need to get something straight (right off the bat). MM didn't ask California to join! California asked MM if they could join MM! Second It's "knew" Third It's "Different" And last but not least, The California Constitution doesn't allow anything but the pari-mutuel payouts as the jackpot grows! Yes if there are many winners for the 5 wb's matched and no powerball, yes they all split the prize, but thats just how the cookie crumbles! Play MM if you like the game and if you don't, I think you know what to do! Save Your Money And Don't Play!

I wouldn't call CA's pari-mutuel MM prize payout a joke. It can go both ways - remember when someone won $1.8 million from matching the five white balls without the mega ball. I'll bet he wasn't calling CA MM a joke!!!

I don't understand what pari-mutuel means. How does this affect a MM winner in California? Does this mean if he/she won, that person will not receive the full amount after taxes?
