Does anyone know what percent of sales goes to fund the jackpot for MM?  I thought it was around 32%.  Thanks a lot!

    It is 32% according to the California and New York lotteries websites.  I made references to that in a few of my earlier posts.

      That may be the percentage of the prize awards, not of the gross ticket receipts.

        32% of ticket sales (excluding TX Megaplier) goes into the jackpot pool. That means almost 65% of the total prize pool is the jackpot.
