Call me crazy but I think it's just stupid to have one huge prize.   I understand that's the purpose of the Lotto but I think the players would be better served with more opportunity.  I know nobody plays the smaller jackpots like they do these monsters but it's just a waste as nobody needs that much money.   Just my opinion.

    I've always preferred Mega Million over  Powerball but it looks like Powerball knocked the dust off Mega Millions as the preferred lotto game and LARGE jackpots this year with all these $300M+ jackpots.

        Hey Crazy!!!

        That's why lotteries have other games with smaller prizes such as PICK 3/4/5, scratch offs and local lottos that offer millions that usually gets hit way before it hits the $40 Million range.

        If you don't like the idea of one single person winning such a huge amount then DON'T PLAY! One less person in my way of winning! - lol -

          This is usually when tickets sales double and people take notice. Last nights drawing did'nt sell as many as the last time it was 300mill. Hard to believe MM is still king.

                   Pardon me for asking but, where are Ronnie and others who had a knack for how do I put this delicately, being insipid and cantankerous? I have been incognito for a spell so, I might have missed a few things.Unhappy

                  Okay, I'll call you crazy. 

                  I don't get this fast spreading communist mentality of one group of people trying to tell another group how much is too much for them to have. I'm not sure there is actually anything more stupd than that. 

                  If YOU don't want that amount of money then the smart thing would be not to play. Only play those lotteries that have a top prize of $250k - $1M. Go ahead and limit yourself, riduculous for you to try to limit others.
