I came across this story and I am a little confused as to how he did not win 1 million dollars rather than $179,442.  He matched 5 white balls on Mega Millions and missed the mega ball.

    In California we don't have fixed prizes.  It's pari-mutuel.  Sometimes it works in our favor, sometimes it doesn't.

      California has pari-mutuel prizes and this was the old game, see the date on the check! The 2nd place prize wasn't $1 million then

        Pari mutuel definitely worked in the second place winners' favors last night - the California second place winners won $2.6 million each!!
