 Why do people get all excited when the jackpot gets high? the default powerball jackpot is around 18 million after taxes. Unless your already rich, wouldn't that do the same for your quality of life as a 100+ million jackpot? Shouldn't people be this excited for every jackpot then? I'm assuming those who play the lottery are not well off, hence the reason your playing the lottery. If you're already broke right now then wouldn't the prospect of winning 18 million be just as exciting as winning 100 million? that means if someone hits this drawing you should be just as excited for the next drawing as this one.

 "Why do people get all excited when the jackpot gets high?"

Well, the difference between $18 million after taxes and $130+ million, is tantalizing

 Many on this post are not rich and would like to have a taste. Of course, $18 million is fine but $100+ million?! Our daydreams fuel our desires and wants.

 Wrong assumption that those who play the lottery aren't well off. While, the lottery is very popular among the lower income, all play to get ahead in life. Rich, poor, life cares not. Some inherit great wealth, some work to get such an amount while, the rest of us hope lady luck smiles on us.

Broke or not $18, million would be" tres excitement mon frere, alors...$100+ million? Zut alors!"

                          Sales haven't been as brisk because of the Black Friday shopping .When I went and got my tickets it wasn't like the last time the jackpot got high people were lined out the door.I think people are buying but not clamoring for tickets.
