I used to like powerball better.  Now, I'm beginning to like MM.  Why?  Because the MM jackpot has been won 6x this year already, whereas PB, just 3x.  I like it when there are more winnners.

    Yeah, it seems the games have reversed in that way this year. Last year, Powerball set a record for most number of jackpot wins in one year since 1997, while Mega Millions tied its record for least number of jackpots awarded in a year. This year, Mega's getting the jackpot wins while Powerball's getting the long runs.

          Powerball. Because it has the Powerplay and it's slightly easier to win and you get more on the smallest tiers.

            MM has a better pay-off than PB. Also here in Texas we have the multiplier.
