Florida MegaMoney game on Tues was $800,000. 2 players won and split the jackpot. The news announced that one winner who claimed her prize today
".... chose the one-time, lump-sum payment option for her winnings in the amount of $291,880.91."
$291.880.91 x 2 = $583,761.82 or about 73%
I realize that FL is a pari mutuel state, but I'm guessing somebody underestimated the jackpot size, since the jackpots for this game usually roll from $500K to $900K and payout about 60 to 65%. Then the prize awarded would have been just about on target.
