The Mega Millions lottery set a new record in California.
The 4+Mega prize was $63,439 for the Sept 2 draw. The other states pay $10,000 for that prize level. The previous record payout in CA was the Aug 30 draw with a payout of $30,149.
The record was reached because of high sales and only one winner. (And because CA prizes are paramutuel).
