Mega Millions is a consortium of 44 state lotteries. Mega Millions drawings are held 2 times a week every Tuesday and Friday at 7:59 PM Pacific Time. Mega Millions game uses a 5/70 (white balls) + 1/25 (Mega Balls) matrix to randomly pick winning numbers. Each play costs $1. In some states, players can choose to pay $1 extra to buy the Megaplier, which multiplies the original winnings 2 to 5 times but not jackpot. The minimum Mega Millions advertised grand prize is 40 million dollar. The annuity option is paid in 30 equal annual payments. Winners can select one-time lump sum cash payout instead.

Compared with other Mega Millions states, all the nine prize levels of California Mega Millions are pari-mutuel, as opposed to non-jackpot prize having a fixed amount. This causes different amounts of prize for equivalent winners sold in California when compared to those sold in other 43 states. One example is, the second Mega Millions prizes is $1,000,000 could pay the winner more than a million dollar due to the pari-mutuel payout system of California lottery. For the same reason, CA state lottery doesn't have Megaplier like other Mega Millions participants.
