    Would you still be complaining if their was only 1 5+0 Winner in California and they were getting $418,302 while the other 5+0 Winners were getting $250,000? I think NOT!

      It's pari-mutuel geos. It depends on their sales and payouts.

          excellent point Raven. It will eventually all work out even though their percentage is low with the payouts.

            There have been people in California who have won more than $1 million for a 5+0 match, because Calif. treats the 5+0 prize as a separate "mini-jackpot" prize, which rolls every time there is no 5+0 winner.  It's a pretty neat way to do it.
