The ultimate irony. Because of California's Pari-Mutuelpayout on MegaMillions (6/13 drawing), the (1) winner of 4 balls + the MegaBall wonmore money, over $46,000 than each of the 4 winners of picking thefirst 5 balls without getting the MegaBall, each of whom won about$33,000.
I've also seen when the first 5 balls pot rolled a fewtimes and there was only one winner they won in excess of $500,000.Crazy.
California gets an inordinate # of 5 ball winners, but probably the population explains it.
