I still don't understand why the MM states (besides TX) haven't added this option yet.  It confuses me.  With the MegaPlier the states get a huge percentage of profits well over the 50% rate they get on most other games.  Not only that, jackpots would run longer with that option.  When I was in Wisconsin I played 5 tickets each with the PowerPlay option instead of otherwise buying 10 tickets.  I could see the states caring about losing those tickets sales but you will make them up with their extra profit.  If they wanted to make sure they would still increase the jackpot they could put a certain percentage of sales of the MegaPlier into the jackpot prize fund.  This would probably be the best option.  What do you guys think?
