I can say being from Pa, they have not advertised Mega Millions as much as they did Powerball. I would think that is the problem with sales. They just got rid of Super 7, again, to have MM. Super 7 was a horrible game, two bucks and the prize was less than half of the jackpot amount. A good idea would be advertise MM again, and stop having Gus the groundhog take up 99% of the commercial time, to get people to play the game.:)
I agree. Super 7 wasn't all that it was cracked up to be. Mix n Match was another dud...$2.00 for a draw that sometimes never broke $100,000..At least Cash 5 has better odds, better payout and only for a dollar.
Too much Gus....<snip> rodent.
Plus they have alot hi way bill boards with PB and no MM.
In addition, I think that the MM has been won more often since it hs been added, causing the JP not to rollover like PB. I like MM, it has better odds (although astronomical) plus the second place prize is $250,000 vs $200,000.
They need to give it time, they should look at the sales of MM when the JP was reset for PB and the JP was higher for MM. If the PB is won this week and is reset, and won a few more times, allowing MM to have a much larger jp, then they can look at sales to see where they need a boost.
Even with adding Match 6, they should run a once a week or month lucky for life lottery (a $1000 a week or $100,000 a yr for life)....and get rid of some of the scratchers. The problem with scratchers is if all of the jackpots have been won, the tickets are still sold, even if they are not supposed to be sold.
