*In some circumstances, fixed prizes may be paid on a pari-mutuel basis and will be lower than these published prize levels. See Mega Millions and MUSL Mega Millions rules, procedures, and other documents.

**The Lottery will announce the estimated Jackpot annuity prize value and the estimated cash prize value for every Mega Millions Drawing. The Jackpot prize will be divided equally among all Jackpot prize winning plays. When a prize is claimed, Jackpot winners will have the option to receive your Jackpot in a single (“cash”) payment or in annuity payments. A Jackpot prize will be paid as an annuity of 30 graduated payments over 29 consecutive years unless the winner selects the cash payment method within 60 days of the Ticket validation date, even though you have 182 days after the drawing date to claim your prize. The cash payment amount will be lower than the announced estimated Jackpot annuity prize. Variations in the announced Jackpot prize amounts may occur.

When there is no Jackpot winner, all of the Jackpot prize money is rolled over and added to the Jackpot for the next Mega Millions drawing. Following a drawing with a Jackpot winner, the annuitized Jackpot will start at $15,000,000.
