Cash vs. Annuity
The advertised Jackpot Prize is paid as an annuity of 30 payments over 29 years or, at the election of the winner, in a single lump sum payment of the cash value of the annuity prize (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 Lotto America Group Rules. Annuity payments are paid pursuant to Lotto America Group Rules and New Mexico State Law.
*The Jackpot Prize shall be divided equally among winning Jackpot Prize plays. Each Jackpot Prize share that has a cash value of $250,000 or less is paid in a single payment. Any Jackpot Prize not won will be added to the next drawing’s Jackpot Prize.
Jackpot prize is estimated and will be divided equally among all winning tickets.
All set prizes, including All Star Bonus prizes, may be reduced if claims exceed available prize fund and may become pari-mutuel.
All Star Bonus may increase from time to time due to special promotions.
