Mega Millions is a consortium of 44 state lotteries. It holds the record highest jackpot of $656 million in U.S. lottery history. To play, pick 5 numbers from 1 to 70 then pick a Mega Ball number from 1 to 25. Each play costs $1. In some states, players can choose to spend 1 extra dollar to buy the Megaplier option, which multiplies the winnings 2 to 5 times except jackpot. The overall odds of winning is about 1 to 14. The odds of matching all six Mega Millions numbers are 1 to 302,575,350. The minimum Mega Millions advertised grand prize is $40 million. The annuity option is paid in 30 equal annual installments. Winners may choose one lump sum cash payout instead.

Compared with other Mega Millions states, all the nine prize tiers of California Mega Millions are pari-mutuel, rather than non-jackpot prize having a fixed value. This results in different amounts of prize for equivalent winners sold in the state of California when compared to those sold in other Mega Millions states. By way of example, the second Mega Millions prizes is $1,000,000 could pay the winner over $1000,000 due to the pari-mutuel payout system of California lottery.
