    I personally hope Powerball hits $400 Million first and it certainly can happen, but once we reach $314.9 million, the national and international media headlines of "New Record Pb Jackpot Up for Grabs" will stoke the fires of an already existing feeding frenzy for tickets. The resistance level for a roll-over beyond the old single recipient record will undoubtedly be substantial as those who don't usually participate or have never played Powerball will be buying tickets on a hope-for-a-record whim.

    ... the lottery never fails to surprise!

      yeah. i think the other reason why mega millions will reach $400 million first is the fact that there are so many powerball states, and so many border stores. granted mega millions has more people in the states, it has fewer people living outside their states. because powerball has so many states, and so much notatiety in the media, they have a lot more people crossing the borders to purchase tickets, saturating the game.

      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.

          Don't forget, once Powerball sets a new jackpot record, jackpot increases are limited and money is added to the second tier prize fund.

              I wouldn't mind seeing Powerball get that high because MegaMillions isn't available in my state<grin>.  I'd have to drive a few hours from where I am to get to the Texas border to play MegaMillions.  If MegaMillions gets that high, I may have to do just that.
