i am really happy about this: the perspective...is it ball drawing or RNG, there are hackers out there....

The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

        It would be awesome if they increased it to 20 million like powerball.

        They should increase the odds, and the starting jackpot with this big a recent increase in states joining.

        I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

            It is interesting that so many states have joined Mega Millions in the past few months and they have not yet raised the starting jackpot from 12 million.  With so many states playing Mega Millions now, the sales should be high enough to justify a higher starting jackpot that 12 million.

            Hi RollChris!

            I totally agree.......With so many states playing, why haven't they raised the starting jackpot?

            If they are not going to increase the starting jackpot....at least allow all the states to use the megaplier....

              All of the states are allowed to use the Megaplier.  Some don't use it (yet) because they choose not to.  If you live in a state that does not have the Megaplier you should contact your state lottery and voice your opinion that you want it.

               

              Check the State Lottery Report Card
              What grade did your lottery earn?

                My above arguement was based on how "GREEDY" the Powerball/Megamillions have become.....a starting point of 12/20 million is just waaaaaaaaaaay tooooo low and is bordering on being laughable/joke...!

                There's just too many states in the collective pool for it to be that low however you'll never get them to address this issue...

                The starting point should be at least 50-75 million and grow from there....

                Like I said in my earlier post if the state Govts weren't so "GREEDY" then they wouldn't be borrowing out of it...

                I'm tellin ya this is straight up BS to be pullin a stunt like that .. !

                  I tend 2 agree with Crow, the lottery's greed and unwillingness 2 raise the $12M starting jackpot with 42 states pouring $$$ into this gm is borderline criminal.. The odds are so astronomiclly bad that u actually hit the lottery. 176M to 1 is nearly impossible, in fact better chance u get struck by lightning while simultaneously being eaten live by  great white shark. That being said, people do win, and I play for entertainment, but Im now seemingly favoring PB over MM, b/c at least PB seems to roll faster than MM and I like dealing with 7 less numbers when choosing the bonus number.

                    If I'm ever being eaten alive by a Great White Shark I hope I am struck by lightning.

                    That would be vastly superior to winning the Powerball Jackpot at that particular point in time.

                      The REAL joke with these games is the payouts they give for lower prizes. The odds for 3 + 0 is 1 in 306, but the payout is $7. Quid? The odds of 3 + 1 are 1 in 15,313 (greater than the odds of winning Pick-4), but the prize is $150 (significantly less than the top prize of Pick-3!) This is why I have decided to not play these games again (that, and I would have no idea what to do with the money if I did win!) The only games I will play are the Pick-3 and the Pick-4. The top prizes are low, but at least the prizes are fair! 50-50 seems like a good ratio.

                      Today's winning 3-ball is going to be a number between 000 and 999.

                      In a lot of states, lotteries benefit education. That makes the REAL winners the only people who can't play!
