Mega Millions game uses a 5/70 (white balls) + 1/25 (Mega Balls) matrix from which winning numbers are chosen. 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 but not jackpot. The minimum Mega Millions advertised jackpot is $40,000,000. The annuity option is paid in 30 equal annual installments. Winners can choose one-time lump-sum cash payout 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 winning tickets sold in California when compared to those sold in other jurisdictons. For instance, the 2nd Mega Millions prizes is a million dollar could pay the winner more than a million dollar due to the pari-mutuel payout system of California lottery. For the same reason, California state lottery does not have Megaplier like other Mega Millions states.
