Well, one ticket in CA matched 5/5 and won $1.4 million. It's a mini progressive. When no CA ticket matches 5 numbers in MM, it rolls over until at least 1 ticket matches 5 numbers, but misses the MEGA. On the downside, 1/5+MB was only $2, and 0/5+MB was only $1 in the last draw thanks to 1 ticket hitting 5/5, but missed the MEGA.

      NY Lotto is the only other lottery game I know of with a progressive second prize.

          todd:

          For some reason I never thought of SLP. Makes sense now.
