I have a question about the megaplier.  Since TX is the only state that offers it, where does the extra $ that surpasses $175,000 come from?  Does the TX lottery commission pick up the rest for megaplier winners?  Just a question I thought of.  Or does the megaplier money come from Mega Millions?

    ALL secondary prizes in Mega Millions (and Powerball for that matter) come from the states themselves (the state that sold the ticket).  The only money that is shared is for the jackpot.
