To me, it's very simple.

I prefer whichever, MM or PB, offers the bigger jackpot at a given point in time. So, my preference usually changes from time to time.

    I respect the posts of all members.  We all have our reasons for posting messages.  I appreciate those that sincerely try to  give good information for the benefit of all.  Obviously, there are those who have superior knowledge in certain fields, and I acquiece to thir expertise.  Specifically, I'm talking about the mathematicians amongst us, the engineers, statisticians, and those good at numbers who want to share their knowledge.

    There are a rare few however, who just want to post anything just for the heck of having the last say.  Not in this thread though.

      I like both MM and PB as my vote. However, I don't play PB because CA doesn't have it. I don't play MM because the pending lawsuit that could make CA not play MM and/or jackpot isn't reached 300 million. I do play MM and PB for fantasy picks only.

            i think the mega millions game not having the megaplier turns some people off.therefore powerball gets more positive press.......

                I like PB because of the Powerplay option however when the jackpots get to the $300m range, I like MM because of the Cash Value that supercedes PB hands down.  Just think, in 3 rolls of MM, we would have after taxes a cash value in the neighborhood of $300,000,000 take home.  So they both have pro's and con's.  I'm fortunate enough to live where I can play both.
