Mega Millions is a consortium involving 44 state lotteries. It holds the record biggest jackpot of $656 million in North American lottery history. Roughly 50% of the Mega Millions sales goes back on the players in prize winnings. About 15% goes to commission of retailers and lottery operation expenses. Approximately 35% total sales is used to support government services, education and charities in the member lottery states. Mega Millions drawings occur every Tuesday and Friday night at 7:59 p.m. Pacific Time. Mega Millions lottery uses a 5/75+1/46 matrix from which winning numbers are chosen. Each play costs $1. In some states, players can choose to spend 1 extra dollar to purchase the Megaplier, which multiplies the original winnings 2 to 5 times but not grand prize. The minimum Mega Millions advertised grand prize starts at $12,000,000. The annuity option is paid in 26 equal yearly payments. Winners can choose one time lump sum cash payout instead.

Not like other Mega Millions participants, all the 9 prize tiers of California Mega Millions are pari-mutuel, instead of non-jackpot prize having a set value. This leads to different prize amounts for equivalent winners sold in the state of California when compared to those sold in other 43 Mega Millions states. For example, the second Mega Millions prizes is a quarter million dollar 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 have Megaplier like other Mega Millions participants.

There were 238,886 Mega Millions winning tickets sold in the state of California. Find below the CA Mega Millions payout highlights for the Tuesday night's drawing.
