How many draws does it take for PB and MM get to the $300,000,000? I'm thinking of buying a 10 Multi-draw ticket tommarow.

    Last time, it took Powerball 17 rollovers to get to $300 million. However, if the jackpots keep jumping the way they are, it may take Powerball only 15 or 16 rolls, but of course, it's less likely it will make it there.

    The last time Mega Millions made it over $300 million, it took only 16 rolls, but it may get there in as soon as 14 rolls if that jackpot keeps increasing the way it does. However, again, it's less likely it will make it there.

        i heard a guy on tv last night say if you play powerball for every draw your odds are 1 in 60,000 that you might win the jackpot in your lifetime so how many tickets would you need to buy for each draw to win the sucker once in your lifetime.?

          hmm over that period of time witch is varible(being how long we live for) 1 in 60k  for a jackpot sounds pretty good  well lets not forget that 5 will give 250k 2nd prize  lets face it a powerball hit is a 50:1 shot by itself  but 2nd is do-able  i can live on 250k well make that 180k by the time g-man gets threw with yaPatriot
