      I would only play if the matrix made the odds like 1 in 300 million shot of winning.

        I say yes.  One reason.  Everyone would be happy.  No one would complain that one game is better when we all have the same game. 

        How are you going to win if you don't play?

                    Here's a format that might work for a game of this size.

                    5/65 + 1/35


                    Prize
                    Odds
                    5+1
                    Jackpot!1 : 289,096,080
                    5+0
                    Regional
                    1 : 8,502,825.9
                    4+1
                    $25,0001 : 963,653.6
                    4+0
                    $400
                    1 : 28,342.8
                    3+1
                    $250
                    1 : 16,333.1
                    3+0
                    $10
                    1 : 480.4
                    2+1
                    $10
                    1 : 844.8
                    1+1
                    $3
                    1 : 118.8
                    0+1
                    $2
                    1 : 52.9
                    2+0
                    $1
                    1 : 24.8

                    Overall Odds: Approx. 1 : 14

                    Now what about that 5+0 prize up there? What does "Regional" mean? Well the consortium will be split into regions of about 3 million people each. Each region will have it's own jackpot for the 5+0 category. The minimum will be $400,000 cash.

                    Minimum Main Jackpot : $15,000,000 in cash (I think a huge annuity-free game would be very appealing).

                        Bad idea!

                        Too much competition and the odd's would staggering. I think Powerball has too many states involved as it is.

                          I think it's a great idea that MM and PB should merge. What do you think about my format of 5/60+1/52 MB?

                          5/5+MB: Jackpot

                          5/5: 250K

                          4/5+MB: 10K

                          4/5: $200

                          3/5+MB: $250

                          3/5: $15

                          2/5+MB: $20

                          1/5+MB: $10

                          0/5+MB: $7

                            Two games are better.

                              Three, if you count the Blue Game.
