Powerball and Mega Millions were both won in back to back drawings again.

Didn't this happen again just recently?

Well we will be in a race again.  Which one will make it to $100 million first....$200 million

We have been on a streak with lower jackpots.....time for bigger ones again!!!!

    Yes, this did happen just last month. This will probably help sales of the in-state lotto games in some Mega Millions states.

    BTW, Saturday night's jackpot win was the first for Oklahoma.

      And like i've said in previous posts just because they changed the matrix dosen't mean smaller pots woln't be won. The changes they made back fired on them again. They though they would have lots of big pots when they added all the extra numbers.

      I just hope they don't panic again and make more changes.

        Bradly_60, congratulations to CA winning MM Jackpot and OK winning PB Jackpot. If CA SLP Jackpot does roll, then they become the highest jackpot in world. I think MM will grow faster than PB long-term.

          Despite the recent increase in jackpot wins for both games, it still is not as bad as it was for Powerball in early 2005, when for eight straight runs, the pot didn't even break $50 million, and for three times in a row, the jackpot was won on just the third draw of the run.

            The worst thing about both games getting hit together is that, like last month, NY Rotto has a higher jackpot. Only California Super Lotto Plus has a higher jackpot in the nation right now.
