States are raising and loewring the starting jackpots for their games, but they can never find that ideal starting jackpot. What do you think the ideal starting jackpot should be for a big jackpot 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.

      For MM/PB, $15 million. For a smaller game like Lotto South, maybe $4 million.

         To me it depends on what kind of lotto are you talking about if you are talking about a state lotto I would say somewhere around 2-3 million but if you talking about a muti state lotto like mega millions or power ball I would say somewhere around 12-15 million

          I'm saying $5 million.  This is based on a game like lotto south.  I would say $15 million for powerball.

            for an in-state game, $4-5 million seems right. for a multi-state game, somewhere around $15-20 million is a good starting jackpot.
