I was surfing the web when I came across this story for powerball on a yahoo search engine in the www.journalinquirer.com out of Manchester.  It was talking about how the governer is going to have to let powerball make its changes or leave powerball and have no multi-state game.  The other choice is to try and join mega millions with worse odds then powerball.

    And the odds of CT joining Mega are about the same as Powerball. Personally it would be fine if CT left. The new powerball might have a chance of getting some decent prizes unless North Carolina joins which is very likely. Mega has stated it doesn't want to add more states and the only state remaining they would want is Florida.

      The news said that CT is going to stay with PB. If CT had left PB, I know that they'll join MM. Either way, CT wins by going to any multi-state jackpot game [PB or MM].

        The Mega Millions group has said on numerous occasions that they will not let any new states join. CT would've been stuck with Classic Lotto, although I'm pretty sure it wouldn't be "classic" anymore if such an event happened.

          Just search the news section for "Powerball" -- it will turn up that story, plus another one that talks about Powerball staying in CT.

            Good thing CT didn't leave Powerball, with the jackpot now up to $80 million. Of course it pales in comparison to the $200 million Mega.
