      That is something that should never happen.  The odds of hitting the jackpot would be so ridiculously terrible!!!

      I like having 2 seperate lotteries. If they were both managed well then one could have a big pot when the other didn't. As it is now they both have small pots compared to their odds.

        I think they'd have a dispute over the name PowerMega or MegaPower

          lol,they'll decide to call it powermega after a year of legal hassles and arguments,the matrix will be 5/79,and they'll be 70 red and white and blue balls as the megapowerball,the megapowerplier will multiply prizes.....

            i don't see it happening in the near future. you have two different groups merging together with contracts against each other.

            I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

              I really hope they don't ever merge.  I live in Maryland and play Mega Millions in my home state and Powerball in close by Pennsylvania.  I like having multi-million dollar jackpots going 4 nights a week.  Now if we just could get an additional national lottery to draw on Monday's and Thursday's, then I would only be bored on Sunday evenings!!!

                 you can also get powerball in the outskirts of DC.

                 

                Mike,

                I don't think powerball and mega will every merge. There might be a national lottery one day but not in the for seeable future. And not until all states have come on board with a state lottery. Then there might be a merger. Getting some of the bible states to adopt a lottery has hit many snags allready. A national lottery with a great payout structure would be neat.

                    yeah,the bible belt states have trouble getting lotteries especially mississippi,i do hope though that maybe arkansas will come through one day.

                      I agree!  I play PB in CT and just go down the road to play MM in NY.  Drawings four nights a week are much better than two.

                          perhaps if they would agree to hold drawings 6 nights a week, maybe it would fly.

                            i think it would be a good idea if they went to three or four nights a week.....

                              I rather see two jackpots as opposed to just one. Like, let's spread the winnings around!  Who needs $ 500 million or more?  

                              I play to dream and dream of winning a major jackpot!
