Now that the Mega Millions jackpot has gone over $100 million, I am going to try to figure out if that is a new record based upon the number of rolls it took to reach that level. I did that exercise a couple of weeks ago for the Powerball lottery. The Powerball did in fact break a record.
It is a time consuming exercise to go over all the archives. I will take a stab at it in my spare time and will report back soon. I am more interested though on when Mega Millions reaches the very large jackpot levels of around $300 million. But by going over the old drawings now I will be better prepared for when the jackpot is very large.
