Just wondering why states don't have both games when people are crossing state lines to play one or the other and what the popular support would be.

      Well, I personally don't care either way, since I live right on the border of Iowa (a Powerball state) and Illinois (a Mega Millions state).

      I believe that Georgia for a short time offered both games simultaneously, but the MUSL (Powerball) didn't like that and kicked Georgia out.

      No, not correct.  GA joined in the formation of then Big Game which became Mega Millions and continued offering PowerBall up to but never simultaneous with the Big Game.  Nope, to my knowledge GA went in a new direction in order to compete with PowerBall because they real potential with something new.

      Good luck to everyone!

        I would probably play both at the same time on occassion, but most likely I'd only play which ever one has the biggest jackpot.

            I'd play both just about every drawing.

              I wish GA would go back to POWERBALL. I would only play both if the jackpot was high on both.

                Does anyone know if their is a licensing conflict that prohibits states from having both games?
