Pari-mutuel treatment of Megaplier Prize Categories Two (2) and Three (3):
The expected payout percentage for a Mega Millions Megaplier drawing is 50% of Mega
sales. However, because Mega Millions Megaplier pays out fixed prizes, the total prize liability will be above or below 50% of sales based on the number of winning plays at each prize level. If the base prizes awarded for any Mega Millions drawing meet the pari-mutuel criteria of the Mega Millions liability cap, as outlined in the Mega Millions Finance and Operations Procedures, then the Megaplier prizes shall be calculated upon the same pari-mutuel basis. Prize Categories Two (2) and Three (3) shall be an amount equal to the pari-mutuel prize value multiplied by the Megaplier number selected for that drawing.
The prize payout information for Mega Millions® will be updated by Wednesday and Saturday mornings at
CST, following scheduled drawings.
Note: Illinois Lottery only reports the payout information for Illinois winners. For payout information of all participating Mega
