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.
