I'v had people say both things some like the big post and will only play the big pots. A few times i have said to people i'm going to DC to ge some powerball tickets anybody want me to get some for you. Na they reply its only 60 million i don't buy tickets until the pot gets up over a hundred mil.
I play mega regardless of the size of the pot. But a lot of people don't play it either unless the pot is over a 100 mill. There must be a certain ring to a hundred mil. That gets people fired up to play. I would be happy with any size pot. I could make due with a 10 mill pot.
$10M minus "Cash" Option = #5M minus State Tax = $350,000 = $4,650,000.00.
Now, if you can live with that, instead of $100,000,000.00 minus everthing, go for it...
To answer your question, I think that's why people wait for the "POT" to grow becauce of the large amount of $ that is taken away from you right off the bat.
May the warm winds of heaven blow softly upon your house. May the Great Spirit bless all who enter there. May your mocassins make happy tracks in many snows. And may the rainbow always touch your shoulder.
