Why is the amount much more significant in California than the other states where Match 5 tickets are typically worth $1 million? The Golden State offers Powerball prize amounts on a pari-mutuel basis, which means the prize amounts vary depending on the number of ticket sales and winners. Therefore, the prize amounts can be worth either more or less than winners in other states.
