Full Question:

 If you could win any game in the world, which would it be?  Don't factor in prize amount.  Just factor in the game itself.  Also, if in the US or Canada, which state or province would you want to win in?

        I didn't vote because I am greedy I would like the Oregon Megabucks Jackpot, the Oregon Powerball Jackpot, the Washington Lotto Jackpot, and the Washington Mega Millions Jackpot.  As many times as I possibly can get them before I take the old dirt nap.-weshar75

          I could care less about the game itself, I care about the best payout, and the best odds of winning. Why would I care what the game is? I prefer anything $1,000,000 and up so that I am able to live off of the interest comfortably. Powerball tops my list because of the payout, but I will take a lower JP of course.

                Winning Mega Millions would be the tougher achievement, so I would say Mega Millions.

                        MUSL is run by idiots. I would hope not. Odds are they would have a cap and a terrible annuity just like Powerball. I'd be happy winning the WA state lottery now that it's approaching 11 million. You take what you can get. I'd like to win much more but 11 would be very nice.

                          I wouldn't care if it were a local church raffle. I just want to win something one of these days!  I remember when I was 12 I won a dance contest at a Bar Mitzvah. The prize was a 45. (For those of you from the CD generation, I'm talking about a record, not a gun.)  It was Mickey's Monkey by the Miracles and the song I danced to was "My Boyfriend's Back."  So you can see I need a win badly.

                          As far as which game I'd prefer, it's probably the Florida Lotto.  Even though the winner's name is public information, there's not as much publicity as with PB and MM.  If I lived in a state where the winner can remain anonymous, that would be even better.

                            powerball in PA

                            Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

                              I would say Euro Millions in UK if I am forced to choose one.

                              As far as I know, there are few jackpot games that offer as much reset (baseline) jackpot amount as Euro Millions does: usually $18M cash. After several rollovers, however, I wouldn't care much: either one of MM, PB, EM, or even state lottos might attract me to play.
