Around 15% is used to as commission of retailers and lottery operating costs. Roughly 35% total sales is used in government services, education and charities in the member lottery states. The minimum Mega Millions advertised grand prize is $12,000,000. The annuity option is paid in 26 equal yearly installments. Winners can select one time lump sum cash payout option instead.

Contrary to other Mega Millions participants, all the nine prize levels of California Mega Millions are pari-mutuel, as opposed to non-jackpot prize having a set value. This causes different prize amounts for equivalent winners sold in California when compared to those sold in other forty three lotteries. One example is, the 2nd Mega Millions prizes is $250,000 could pay the winner over $1000,000 due to the pari-mutuel payout system of California lottery. For the same reason, CA state lottery does not offer Megaplier like other Mega Millions states.
