Has anyone clicked on the jackpot analysis for both  the Mega Millions and Powerball? If so, can anyone explain how you seemingly take home much more of the pot with the Mega Millions?

    I think a couple people posted good replies in your June 21 thread.  I can't seem to post a link right now, but the title is "Why Do You Get More with Mega Millions?" and it's in the Jackpot forum.

      I know, for some reason, I can't seem to find many of my posts or the respones to them, so I just keep posting the same things :-)

        The Powerball annuity is paid out more slowly than the MM annuity, so for a given amount of cash the advertised annuity is bigger.

          On any forum - this one - go click on your Username (MissNYC), then go down to 'view recent posts by MissNYC' at the bottom.

          It goes into multiple pages as well.

          You're Welcome.

              FOR YOUR ANSWER, go to www.usamega.com, and then click the FAQ page for either Mega Millions or Powerball.  It gives a very detailed answer there.

              If you have other questions about either Mega Millions or Powerball, I would suggest browsing that site, starting with the FAQ pages, as it contains most answers that people are looking for.

               

              Check the State Lottery Report Card
              What grade did your lottery earn?

                I usually check on frequency to determine which numbers I'll pick in the upcoming challenge.

                  Powerball is still a slightly better game, although The Terminator was able to negotiate

                  better payouts for his state
