Cash vs. Annuity
The advertised jackpot/grand prize is an estimated amount which is paid as a 30-payment graduated annuity or, at the election of the winner, in a single lump sum payment of the cash value of the annuity jackpot/grand prize (subject to State and Federal taxes). If the winner chooses the annuity, the annual payments will be increased each year by a percentage set out in the MUSL Mega Millions Product Group Rules. Any individual jackpot prize share that has a cash value of less than $250,000 may be paid in a single payment. Annuity payments are guaranteed upon death to a deceased winner's estate or to a person designated by a judicial order.
- Jackpot prize is estimated and will be divided equally among all winning tickets.
- All set prizes, including Megaplier prizes, may be reduced if claims exceed available prize fund.
- Pool of Megaplier numbers consists of: 2,2,3,3,3,3,4,4,4,5,5,5,5,5,5.
- Multiplier may increase from time to time due to special promotions.
