I've noticed that the (simulated) Megaplier draw is no longer part of the Texas Tuesday and Friday night draws. The actual Megaplier selection is before the Mega Millions draw at 9:59, but a simulation had always been a part of the Texas draw at 10:12. It was shown after all the game numbers were drawn and right before the Mega Millions draw recording was played.
The selection isn't part of the Mega Millions draw broadcast, like the Powerplay number selection is featured in the Powerball draw, although they do now show the Megaplier number in the corner of the screen. I don't know who runs the selection now, which I guess doesn't really matter, except that Texas rigged the numbers so that 4 was most likely. I wonder if that bias will continue when the selection moves.
