Parimutuel means a certain % of the money played is dedicated to each prize level. In this case 4.6 million dollars was available for the second prize level. Since two people won they each got half of that. Just divide 4.6 million by the number of second place winners. Hope that clears it for you.

Ding ding ding!!

Perfectly well said. I finally understand. Makes so much sense to me now. Thanks for clearing that up. I guess now, all there's left to do is: criticize tonight's PB winner for not paying child support, LOL!! JK. :P

            The player is a winner, even if they don't bother to collect. Yes Nod

              One ticket winning, if it was one person as it seems to be now because there's no way a pool of people could keep quite this long, they're probably still in freakout mode while getting as much as they can settled before claiming and probably hoping the longer they hold off in FL's time limit more it'll be forgotten about.

              You can't predict random.

                Looking forward to seeing who it is!! I'd still be in "freak out" mode, if I won that much!

                    Having this jackpot prize of $600 million for sure there will be another lottery buying frenzy again. I'm sure a lot of players are excited for this jackpot too. I will be extremely happy if I will get even half of the prize.
