I went to the 7 11 Store here in Arroyo Grande, Ca. I had a winning ticket of $2, that it said on line with The Mega number and 1 other number. At the 7 11 he would only give me $1 for it! They've stiffed me before of more money, at least a couple of times, and I'm wondering if they did it today for only $1.

    According to payout information at USAmega for the last MM drawing California only paid $1 for a mega ball +1 while the other states paid $2.

     * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

      From the California website:

      "In California, POWERBALL/MEGA Millions prize amounts are pari-mutuel, will vary depending on ticket sales and number of winners and will differ from the fixed prizes shown on the POWERBALL/MEGA Millions website. "

      "No one remembers the person who almost climbed the mountain, only the person who eventually gets to the top."

        OK thanks. I thought it might be something like that, but since I'd been stiffed there a few times......
