I haven't been here to LP in quite a while.  Without the big Jackpots, I don't visit as much.  I still play, but I guess I was spoiled by the large Jackpots of 2005.  I'm anxiously awaiting a $200 million+ Jackpot.  My bet is on Powerball reaching at least $260 million on this run.

    How could you put NY Lotto in the poll? It will NEVER even reach $100 million.

      Powerball already reached 200 million this year and might again on this run.

      California won't and neither will any other single state.

      Euromillions has it's odds too low considering the number of players and will stay below 200 for the rest of the year.

      I gave up on Mega. More like a Megajoke now. Bad odds + low prizes.

        California has come close ($193 million.) I can see SLP reaching $200 million sometime.

            Mega Millions will see another $200+ million jackpot before the year is up. In fact, either this run will make it there or I will be the one to ruin it (by winning the pot at any level).

              I do too, it may be a while until we see it though. I think it's just amazing how SLP has remained strong even with Mega Millions. But then again SLP is a much better deal, in so many ways, compared to Mega Millions, and I'm probably not the only one who thinks so.

                I think the only two games listed that have a realistic shot at it is the multi-state games.  I would like to see both of them end up in my back pocket.  But if I can not win then let the games roll on and I will say Mega Millions.  Can not have low jackpots forever.-weshar75

                  delS, my vote is for PB. I hope PB continues to roll [Currently at 89 million].

                    If Powerball rolls again Saturday, it will be its seventh consecutive run breaking $100 million, tying the record set by Mega Millions last year.

                      I'm feeling Powerball will definitely get over the $200m mark, MM will probably get hit in the next draw or two.

                        I chose the california lottery.

                        PB will be hit at the 110 mark this time around and Euro Millions will follow.

                         Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014

                          Oh well, I had high hopes for Mega Millions to get to the $200million level.  Well, I have Powerball Draws for the next 3.  We'll see if Powerball can make it!

                            Also, $200 million level Jackpots seem to be rare this year!  Just my observation!

                              $200 million jackpots are expected to be rare, because it's more likely the jackpots of both games will be won before then, despite the high odds against winning.
