          I was just about to post the same thing. I think it's because people were playing birthdays. 68 winners, that is just crazy. Sucks to be in California, though.

          My worst nightmare is matching all 5 and not getting the mega. 250k(or less since I'm in California) is nothing to joke about, but 1 number away from hundreds of millions, somebody keep me away from a bridge!

            What's going on in California?

            There is one winner there, how much does this person get for

            matching 5 numbers?

              There were 21 5+0 winners in California, Nikki.

              Each one gets $56,382 instead of $250,000 because of the pari-mutuel setup they have out there.

                Quite a "shared wealth program" they have set up out there with that system..... even though they don't have taxes on lottery winnings as I have seen posted on L.P....... Hope they arent raffling off a new vehicle

                  Ohhh I thought there was only one winner in California.

                  Pari-mutuel setup you have to share? lol Well it's better than nothing!

                  Congrats to all 5+0's!!!

                    Yabbut if you look at your ticket and see $250K worth of numbers there, it's gotta be a pretty big let down when you later see it's really only 1/5 of that amount.  If it was me, I already have it figured out how $250K will be spent, so I'd be very disappointed to find out those plans are way scaled back.  I guess if you live in CA maybe you learn not to get your hopes up until you double check the exact amount you'll be getting.

                      We have a pool going at work, $20 per person to join. We have about 7 people right now, will try and get more tomorrow, lol. Going to try and get at least 10 people total and will go out of state to get tickets. Probably West Virginia or Maryland since no body ever hits here in Virginia. Dont know if I should buy tickets tomorrow evening or the evening before the draw :\

                        I'm just waiting to see if the jackpot gets bumped up to $300 million.
