Payout of Prizes in MegaMillions and PowerBall

As is common with MUSL Mega Millions and Powerball, Provider may also pay out the Winnings in Prize Category 1 over 30 years (the "Annuity Option"). If Provider chooses the Annuity Option, the first payment will be made as soon as possible after the draw, with the next 29 payments at one-year intervals. The level of payments is calculated such that the payments rise by the percentage set by MUSL from year to year until the full sum has been paid out. If Provider chooses the option to pay out Winnings in one lump sum ("Cash Option"), the Winnings after withholdings are discounted, as it is done in MUSL Mega Millions and Powerball. The discount rate is 40%, i.e. the lump sum is 60% of the Annuity Option value. It is in Provider’s discretion to choose the payout plan.

Withholdings for Prizes in MegaMillions and PowerBall:

Provider retains 38% withholdings of prizes in the highest three prize categories because it is intended to put Players in similar economic position as if they had played the underlying lottery.

2.3 Winnings in a Type A Prize Category.

The Winnings payable in respect of each Bet in a Type A Prize Category (as defined in the table above), will depend on the number of the Underlying Lottery Winning Tickets in that Prize Category, the number of Provider Winning Bets in that Prize Category, the payable Prize by the Underlying Lottery Operator for the Underlying Lottery Winning Tickets in that Prize Category as well as the Underlying Lottery Jackpot in that Prize Category. Provider calculates the Winnings in a Type A Prize Category on the basis of the amount of aggregate stakes published by the Underlying Lottery Operator as well as the distribution to that Jackpot Prize Category or on the basis of the jackpot published on the Website of the Underlying Lottery Operator for that Prize Category of the relevant draw of the Underlying Lottery.

Only one Provider Winning Bet in a Type A Prize Category

If there is only one Provider Winning Bet in a Type A Prize Category, the Winnings payable in respect of this Provider Winning Bet are calculated as:

Winnings = Underlying Lottery Jackpot in that Type A Prize Category / (Underlying Lottery Jackpot Winning Tickets in that Type A Prize Category + 1)

Example 1: There is only one Provider Winning Bet in the Type A Prize Category and no Underlying Lottery Winning Ticket has been announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in the Type A Prize Category in respect of an Underlying Lottery Jackpot in the Type A Prize Category of 90,000,000.00 EUR. The Winnings payable in respect of that single Provider Winning Bet amount to 90,000,000.00 EUR.

Example 2: There is only one Provider Winning Bet in the Type A Prize Category and two Underlying Lottery Jackpot Winning Tickets have been announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in the Type A Prize Category in respect of an Underlying Lottery Jackpot in the Type A Prize Category of 90,000,000.00 EUR. The Winnings payable in respect of that single Provider Winning Bet amount to 30,000,000.00 EUR.


More than one Provider Winning Bet in the Type A Prize Category

If there is more than one Provider Winning Bet in the Type A Prize Category, the Winnings payable in respect of the Provider Winning Bets in the Type A Prize Category are calculated based on a "Share Model", consisting of three steps.

Step 1 – Calculation of the number of shares:
Number of shares = Number of Underlying Lottery Jackpot Winning Tickets in that Prize Category + Number of Provider Winning Bets in that Prize Category

Step 2 – Calculation of Size of each share:
Size of 1 share = Underlying Lottery Jackpot in that Prize Category / Number of shares

Step 3 – Allocation of Winnings:
1 share per Provider Winning Bet in the Type A Prize Category

Example 3: There are two Provider Winning Bets in the Type A Prize Category and one Underlying Lottery Jackpot Winning Ticket has been announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in the Type A Prize Category in respect of an Underlying Lottery Jackpot in the Type A Prize Category of 90,000,000.00 EUR. There are three payout shares, with a size of 30,000,000.00 EUR each. The Winnings payable in respect of each Provider Winning Bet in the Type A Prize Category amounts to 30,000,000.00 EUR.

2.4 Winnings in a Type B Prize Category.

The Winnings payable in respect of each Provider Winning Bet in a Type B Prize Category (as defined in the table above, for example Prize Category 2 in EuroMillions) will depend on the number of the Underlying Lottery Winning Tickets in that Prize Category, the number of Provider Winning Bets in that Prize Category, the payable Prize by the Underlying Lottery Operator for the Underlying Lottery Winning Tickets in that Prize Category as well as the Underlying Lottery Jackpot in that Prize Category. Provider calculates the Winnings in a Type B Prize Category on the basis of the amount of aggregate stakes published by the Underlying Lottery Operator as well as the distribution to that Jackpot Prize Category or on the basis of the jackpot published on the Website of the Underlying Lottery Operator for that Prize Category of the relevant draw of the Underlying Lottery.

Only one Provider Winning Bet in a Type B Prize Category

If there is only one Provider Winning Bet in a Type B Prize Category, the Winnings payable in respect of this Provider Winning Bet are calculated as:

Winnings = Underlying Lottery Jackpot in that Type B Prize Category / (Underlying Lottery Jackpot Winning Tickets in that Type B Prize Category + 1)

Example 1: There is only one Provider Winning Bet in a Type B Prize Category and no Underlying Lottery Winning Ticket has been announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in that Type B Prize Category in respect of an Underlying Lottery Jackpot in a Type B Prize Category of 9,000,000.00 EUR. The Winnings payable in respect of that single Provider Winning Bet amount to 9,000,000.00 EUR.

Example 2: There is only one Provider Winning Bet in a Type B Prize Category and two Underlying Lottery Jackpot Winning Tickets have been announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in that Type B Prize Category in respect of a Underlying Lottery Jackpot in a Type B Prize Category of 9,000,000.00 EUR. The Winnings payable in respect of that single Provider Winning Bet amount to 3,000,000.00 EUR.

More than one Provider Winning Bet in a Type B Prize Category
If there is more than one Provider Winning Bet in a Type B Prize Category, the Winnings payable in respect of these Provider Winning Bets are calculated based on a Share Model, consisting of three steps:

Step 1 – Calculation of the number of shares:
Number of shares = Number of Underlying Lottery Winning Tickets in that Prize Category + Number of Provider Winning Bets in that Prize Category

Step 2 – Calculation of Size of each share:
Size of 1 share = Underlying Lottery Jackpot / Number of shares

Step 3 – Allocation of Winnings:
1 share per Provider Winning Bet in that Prize Category

Example 3: There are two Provider Winning Bets in a Type B Prize Category and one Underlying Lottery Winning Ticket has been announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in that Type B Prize Category in respect of an Underlying Lottery Jackpot in a Type B Prize Category of 3,000,000.00 EUR. There are three payout shares, with a size of 1,000,000.00 EUR each. The Winnings payable in respect of each Provider Winning Bet in that Prize Category amount to 1,000,000.00 EUR.

2.5 Winnings in a Type C Prize Category.

The Winnings to be paid out in respect of each Provider Winning Bet in a Type C Prize Category (as defined in the table above, for example Prize Category 4 in EuroMillions) shall be the amount of the Prize announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator in respect of an Underlying Lottery Winning Ticket in the respective Prize Category. If the Underlying Lottery Operator has not announced a Prize in the respective Prize Category for the relevant draw of the Underlying Lottery, the Winnings payable in respect of each Provider Winning Bet in that Prize Category will be calculated on the basis of the aggregate amounts paid in for the relevant draw of the Underlying Lottery announced by the Underlying Lottery Operator and its allocation to the winning Prize Categories.

2.6 Payout of Prizes from Prize Categories to other Prize Categories.

The above regulations apply based on the assumption that there was no payout of Prizes from one Prize Category to another Prize Category, regardless of whether the rules of the Underlying Lottery indicate otherwise. Therefore, in the event Prizes of a higher Prize Category are added to a lower Prize Category, due to either (i) no Underlying Lottery Winning Tickets in a Prize Category for one draw, (ii) no Underlying Lottery Winning Tickets in the higher Prize Category for a number of subsequent draws or (iii) to a jackpot cap in respect of the higher Prize Category, this will not be taken into account by Operator. Operator will only payout the Prize originally allocated to that lower Prize Category based on the stakes published by the Underlaying Lottery and the Prize allocation table of that lottery.

2.7 SpecialJackpots.

For all games, the Operator has the possibility to announce a SpecialJackpot under its sole discretion. In this case, the Special Jackpot sum announced replaces any Underlying Lottery Jackpot in that Type A Prize Category.

2.8 One Prize Category.

Only one Prize Category can be won per Bet, which will be the highest of the available Prize Categories achieved by, and relevant to, that Bet. A Combo Bet can win in more than one Prize Category, based on the separate Bets it is made of.

2.9 Currencies.

Winnings are calculated and credited in EUR. The exchange rate used is the spot rate of exchange (the closing midpoint) for that currency into EUR on the respective draw date as published on oanda.com or (if oanda.com is not available) the European Central Bank euro foreign exchange reference rate (ECB rate) for the respective draw date. This also applies for annuity payments.

2.10 Displayed Information. 

Provider will not be liable for any mistakes in respect to the information displayed.
