      Nah, that kills the appeal. There are smaller jackpots for that. Also would kill sales as they do not want that many people becoming millionaires so they keep playing. It would be good but winning almost a billion dollars would be MUCH better and generates way more buzz and sales. There are already tons of lower jackpot games. I would not complain with a 2nd prize in the several millions but the $700 million is what makes me want to play as I already play other games with those smaller amounts. This is not about making everyone who played rich, or getting something back. If it was the jackpot would be MUCH smaller and not as fun. That is why they made it harder to win too, for this kind of of buzz and sales. But didn't they do that awhile back? I remember them capping it or something and 2nd prize being like $20 million. Maybe it was Mega millions not sure.

        Have any of you seen the video of the guy who was asked questions by a live reporter when he was filling out his Powerball sheets? Look up:  Reporter didn't expect this response after being asked what he'd do if he won $500 million. Made me LOL!

        You mean this video?

                  The winner will be a time traveler from the year 2029 who will disappear at the press conference right after saying, "You won't see another one like this for quite a few years."

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      I would take the annuity, that way you do not have to worry about where you are going to put all that money, bad investments and banks going under etc. My life will be set after the first year, and I will have millions in payments coming for 29 more years which is all just gravy.

                        I hope that you are young enough to live another 30 years. You will need insurance to pay the death tax on the remainder of the annuity. Otherwise, you will leave an estate nightmare for your heirs.

                         Inflation might eat away your nest egg. 

                         Hope for lower taxes and higher interest rates. You will need to ask about how the interest rate might remain the same throughout the thirty years.

                        Happy dreaming!!
