* ALL PRIZES ARE SUBJECT TO PARI-MUTUEL PAYOUTS. ACTUAL PRIZE WON MAY BE LESS THAN THE AMOUNTS SHOWN.
If prizes won in a drawing exceed the maximum amount set by the New Mexico Lottery Authority (NMLA), then that maximum amount will be divided and paid equally among the number of winning plays.

For draws dated June 27, 2021, to present, each prize tier has a maximum payout amount of $125,000. If prizes won for a prize tier exceed that amount, then that amount will be divided and paid equally among the winning plays for that prize tier.
