Checked the prize distribution on the site and it shows 9 winners of the 5+0 prize with a total payout of @225,000.00 (9X$250,000.00) yet two of the winners in Texas used the Megaplier (4) which made their prize $1,000,000.00. This wasn't acknowledged in the payout report but California's parimutual payouts were acknowledged. Is this an oversight or does the Megaplier amounts not count as Megaball payouts. Anyone know?

    Are you talking about the payouts shown on USA Mega?  (www.usamega.com)  If so, that's a good point, they should be listed.  Thanks for the note.
