In all other state lotteries making use of the California format, the odds are about the same.
Most of the states that have lotteries now follow a version of the California plan. For example, early in 1972, New York switched its lottery format to that of California’s. Prizes are; $50,000 for matching all six digits, $5,000 for matching the last five digits (this is $1,000 more than California pays), last four digits wins $500, last three digits wins $50 and tickets matching the last two digits automatically become eligible for a later bonus drawing, somewhat similar to California’s 50t Millionnaire drawing. Under New York State’s lottery law, receipts are divided up in the following manner; 45% for the state, 40% for prizes, and 15% for administration costs.
