CA paid only $117 for a match 4 and $3,004 for a match 4+Mega on the Dec 6 draw. This is the lowest amount ever paid in CA for a match 4 and a match 4+Mega. 5 of the 6 numbers, including the Mega ball, were birthday numbers. The previous record lows were $119 and $4,087 both set in the same draw on Sept 27, 2005.
Also, I notice that when the match 5 is not won in CA, the size of the match 5 prize is not reported. They used to report the amount that would have been won. I found it interesting to track its growth. Now the prize amount will be a surprise when it is won. It has not been won for 4 draws in a row.
