The fixed prizes may be paid on a pari-mutuel basis and will be lower than the published prize amounts if certain levels of prize liability are reached.

* The Lottery will announce the estimated jackpot annuity value and cash option value for every Multi-Match drawing. The advertised amount will be the prize amount that is paid to the winner(s) of the jackpot; the jackpot prize will be divided among multiple plays. When a jackpot prize is claimed, jackpot winner(s) will have the option to receive the jackpot prize in annuity payments paid 25 equal installments or in a single “cash” payment. A jackpot prize will be paid in an annuity, unless the winner selects “cash” payment method within 60 days after the validation date, even though a winner has 182 days after the drawing to claim a prize.

**The Probability that one or more lines in a three-line game will win a prize at the given level. Since more than one line can win a prize, levels are not mutually exclusive.
