Are the estimated cash payouts for megamillions and powerball the same in all states?? I.E....Here in N.C the powerball cash payout is 143 million for the 214 million dollar drawing and for mega millions the cash payout is 20 million for the 26 million dollar drawing...BTW does anyone notice the huge decrepancy between the payouts with powerball and megamillion? I.E. its 20 million vs. 26 million in the payout for megamillions and for powerball its 143 million vs. 214 million....That's a huge gap in the payouts....Im just wondering....why?

    You can check the jackpot analogy for both games at USAMega, it explains the different annuities periods and payout schedules for the next estimated jackpots of both games.

          USAMega specialty is only PowerBall and MegaMillions.  If you want to know about other games you have to come to LP.

            Those are the only games I really care about.

            Guess if your looking for some chump change, LP would be a nice place to go.  Thumbs Up
