It is low interest rates due to the poor economy. 

This is documented in several recent Powerball and Mega Millions articles I published recently.  I did not include it in this article because I try to avoid repetition.

then only mention what place this weeks powerball or mm estimated jackpot is in (not that it matters) instead of showing the complete list over and over again. or scale it down to the top 10 all time. even so that info has no bearing whatsoever on the "current" jackpot. a better list would be showing how much was bet in each state every drawing and how much was won state by state since so many here are obsessed with the lucky state theory or the fixed state theory. those stats would reveal a lot of info far more interesting than some ancient history of past results.

        I play every drawing it doesn't matter what the jackpot is. I always look at the cash value over the annuity. It makes more sense to me to take cash then the annuity anyways some people would call that foolish because I'm still relatively young... of course I would rather take the tax hit now and get it over with so I can properly invest in what I want to instead of having the lottery buy up bonds. Now is the time to win so you don't have a bloated annuity figure and a smaller cash option. However on a positive note less people are playing so the jackpot has a better chance of climbing higher before it is won... which means better chance for a single ticket winner... And a bigger and better cash jackpot

        I Agree! taxes could go up. A single winner from LP has a better opportunity to win now.Hurray!

            i know, he has nothing else in his bag that will help or entertain lottery players but to keep track of whether this jackpot climbs from #17 all-time to #13 or will it only make it to #14. i just fail to understand the significance of this being constantly reinforced. of course, this is the same guy who thought his invention of the lottery app was the greatest thing since the invention of sliced bread. of any app ever invented this is by far the most useless one. if a lottery player can't figure out where to buy his tickets and needs an app to do it they shouldn't be playing. every convenience store or gas station in the country has a machine.

              Todd should create a lottery app like the Pokemon Go game app to catch lottery winning numbers.

                  Just a $22 mil increase from the previous drawing of $311 mil. People must be tired of playing the lottery or annuity interest rates suck or both.

                  People are tired of losing money on lottery games. Lottery players would have to win a lottery jackpot in order to afford playing the lottery.

                    You have a higher chance of becoming a USA Senator than winning a lottery jackpot in your lifetime.

                      The economy isn't good for the low to middle class or those in search of work. The stock market is doing fine but it's only benefiting those who are actually vested. More than half the adult population is living paycheck to paycheck  and the last thing on their mind is investing what little resource they have left after cashing their check.

                        Becoming a USA Senator or being elected to congress is just like winning a lottery jackpot.

                          It is time for the USA to create a lottery linked to saving bonds like the UK. Mega Millions and Powerball lottery games are taking money away from the economy.

                            It is a more realistic goal for many than winning a MM or PB lottery jackpot.

                              If you are likable and well spoken while being able to BS your way out of a wet paper bag and lie directly to someone's face then the prospects of being a member of the senate or congress is right up your alley.
