No. Occasional players rely on the news and other media to know when the jackpots get big enough for them to jump in and the jackpots aren't getting 2 seconds of coverage anywhere. 

Right. After seeing a Billion dollar jp, it seems "mere" Millions aren't news worthy anymore.

    Has it occurred to you that perhaps there are too many losers in your State- l mean your Governor ran for high office and look what happened? They do say that fish rot from the head down.. Oh well.

    Yeah scotty walker is definitely a failure I voted twice for him ( I wish I could take my votes back and not bother voting at all for him, I wouldn't of voted democrat either though ),  the wisconsin economy is just like the obama economy, sputtering failing.

      You are looking at it the wrong way.  If someone wins on the upcoming draw,  it is unlikely to make national news because the jackpot hasn't reached new highs,  so whoever wins they can fly under the radar as long as they don't make waves that interest the liberal mainstream media,  the only attention the winner will get is the media in the winners home state.

        The odds don't change, only the jackpot amount does. I read somewhere that people start really buying when the jackpot is over 50% of the largest jackpot they ever saw. For the past 4 years it was the 656M jackpot so 329M and above got people interested, now it'll need atleast 700M to get to that level. Although with the way the games have been acting, it's easily conceivable that we'll get there this year.

          The Obama economy is far better than either Bush economy or the Reagan economy this time in their terms. Minnesota and Wisonsin were nearly identical in economic terms in 2010, but Wis voted Republican and Min voted Democrat for Gov. With 2 exceptions, all of the republican governors elected in 2010 have made their states worse off than when they were sworn in.

            I Agree! But that's not what i was talking about.  There are far more players who only buy tickets when it gets high up than players who buy every draw. These occasional players often only know that there is a big jackpot when the media reports on it. If the media doesn't cover the Upcoming draw, then many people who would buy it don't know its risen up to a high level.

              I think someone has been watching too much MSNBC or is completely clueless.

              Stating that the "Obama economy is far better than than either the Bush economy or the Reagan economy"

              Has got to be simply the funniest joke I have heard in quite a while.

                Many places still advertise the MM and PB jackpots on bill boards and I just noticed Bing news had an article about the MM jackpot.

                  Skeptical Are you serious? Facts are facts. I'm not the clueless one. MSNBC is for center-right moderate conservatives like Obama or Hillary.

                      Good to hear that it is getting some coverage though it really isn't much for a top ten jackpot.

                          Facts are not nuts, they are facts. Venezuela failed due to an authoritarian loud mouth who screwed up the country after he took power by convincing the ignorant and poor to support his crazy ideas. Remind you of a certain orange colored person? And don't even try North Korea, that hellhole hasn't been even officially socialist since the 1950's. North Korea invented an economic idea to replace socialism as they weren't socialist at all and they called it Juche, which saint Reagan used as the model for his "trickle down economics".  Socialism is as far removed from communism as anarchy is from dictatorship. You are an adult, start acting like it by looking at facts and not silly fox news conspiracies.

                              Remember that basketball player that spent $10,000 on the lottery, and he did not win the jackpot? Spending $1 is enough for me.

                              10 grand is probably like $1.00 to that bball player. Like Randy Moss said after mooning the fans, " It ain't nothing but 10 grand, no big deal".
