Will California stay pari-mutuel AGAIN?
Maybe that 5 of 5 will only be worth $250k in Califronia. *L*
It would have to be. By law, CA is pari-mutuel for all games. It should work out OK though for the new MM, the prizes should approach fixed prize values. PB has pretty much caught up already, averaging around $1M for 5/5 prize, and a with few >$2M prizes to boot.(last draw had $2,623,314 5/5 winner)
But with MM going to 5x Megaplier, I imagine there might be more civil unrest on that issue of CA not offering a juicy $5M Megaplied 2nd prize. It would probably take rolling over for a couple of months to hit that with pari-mutuel.
