    As I wrote in another post, I'm sort of happy we don't have either one here since it's just more money to throw away twice a week. However, I think I'd play one of them, probably PB.

      I wish we had both in TN and not just one it would save me a trip to GA every week. I usually only play these two games any way.

          Yea I know but if I go, I get gas and my tickets. It is not a total waste of time. besides that I get to go over the nickajack lake and I like to look at the birds and wildlife. I also marvel at the mountains and the beauty of them. So if we had both games here in TN I would miss that but on some days I would miss the time alone in the car with nothing but nature as my entertainment.

            Instead of driving to GA once a week...  Select MultiDraw.  The multi draw option is what I pick everytime I play.  It is so great.  I have both PB and MM tickets here in Mobile (about 3 hours from a MM state and 6 hours from a PB state).  You are right about Nickajack lake.  It is nice to see the MTNS and the lake. 

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

              I already play both, because I can.  If they were both in my state I would be overjoyed.  No state tax on either would give me MORE money to enjoy.  If I hit PB tonight I would have two choices.  Move to PA immediately and save taxes, or stay where I am, and pay New Jersey tax on the winnings.  8% of the cash value would be a prime incentive to change states immediately.

              Cheers

                Since I live in PB state and am only a half hour drive to a Mega state, I still PREFER MEGAMILLIONS. Why? The jackpot payout is often greater. MB knows to give to the people and not pocket more revenue.

                Too bad though that the state I drive too has never had a jackpot winner for the MB, but I would like to be the first to change that for them! :)

                  I would like to have Mega Millions here in Oregon along side Powerball because I would stop going to the casino and play Mega Millions and Powerball regularly.-weshar75

                    It would be nice, but it would never happen.  MUSL has some sort of no-competition clause in their contracts with the state, making it impossible for any powerball state to carry mega millions and vice-versa.

                    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.

                      LOTTOMIKE, my vote is for when one game's jackpot is big. If either jackpot in CA playing MM or PB reaches 300 million or more, I would play. I hope that CA scraps CA SLP and enters PB with bigger odds.

                        I already play both.  I live in Maryland and play MM there.  I work 5 minutes from the D.C. line and I drive in to pick up PB when the jackpot crosses the $50,000,000 mark.
