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?
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.
