Did you see what someone would have won in California if they hit 5+0 in Mega Millions last night?

This is pretty cool - like a Pick 5 jackpot game in itself!  Who would have guessed?

    WOW.  I wonder if the CA players know about that.  I think a few more would play if they caught that info. 

    How are you going to win if you don't play?

      Not even one ticket hit 5 numbers for the state of CA last night. If only one ticket did hit 5 numbers but missed the MEGA Ball, they would win $1.25 million. I think it is rolled over if no one from CA hits 5 numbers.

        I live in CA and play MM when it surpasses my preestablished jackpot threshold.  I knew about the large second tier prize.  But, I chose not to play since the CA SuperLotto Plus jackpot is larger (currently) than the MM jackpot. 

        Nevertheless, the lottery commission is not advertising the large second tier prize, since I think it may complicate things in the minds of the general public.

          By the way, the rollover only jumped from $1.2 million to $1.25 million during the previous drawing.  Perhaps it will increase more than $50K this time since the MM jackpot is getting larger and will be attracting more players.

              Yeah, the lottery commission probably doesn't expect California to go this long without a match 5+0 winner.
