I think they are counting on people forgetting to cash the low value tickets - no big rush.
Guess I'm in the minority - I don't see the need in a mega-huge jackpot for one person. I'd be much more likely to play with lots of peeps winning realistic amounts: $100, $500, $1000, $10,000, $20,000, etc.
But if that happened, people wouldn't be losing the ticket or forgetting to catch it in. Each of these lower amounts can be important - it depends on your current status.... Buying meat, paying rent, fixing a car, making a down payment on a house or even buying a fixer-upper.
$50,000 and $100,000 jackpots can be huge to many people. There is no reason for one person to have to take all the gravy, except greed.
They can totally count me out.
