Assume you match 5+0 and you played the Powerball or MegaMellions with the power play options and you bought 10 tickets all the same.

PB 10 tickets w/PP = $30.00 = $20 Million
MM 10 tickets w/MP = $20.00 = $10 Million

In Minnesota would they pay you all of that money? Or is there a limit? I've looked but have come up empty handed.

Anyone have any idea?

Thanks!

        Just call the lottery people and ask them.  Better yet, send them an e-mail.

          From the MN Lottery website:

          "The set prize amounts listed above are based on the expected number of winners sharing in the prize pool. In some cases, these prizes may be paid on a pari-mutuel basis and will be lower than these listed prize levels. Refer to the official game procedures for a detailed explanation of the optional pari-mutuel payment."

          There is a limit, probably based on the expected number of 5 + 0 winning tickets, but you have to check the official game procedures to see it.
