The set prize amounts are based on the expected number of winners sharing the prize pool. However, if the number of winners and the available prize pool varies, set prizes may be paid on a parimutuel basis and may be lower than stated.
Winners who don't provide a Social Security number or are not U.S. citizens are subject to higher tax withholding rates and will receive less than the advertised jackpot amount.
