all over national,and local news.so big,i think they should give out one million dollars to 300 winners,but they will not!
Years ago a group talked Ohio into a similar idea which nearly ruined its lottery. Ohio is just now recovering from it after adding MegaMillions to its game.
Years ago when Ohio had some of the biggest jackpots in the area $30M to $60M and people from outer state would travel to Ohio to play, they put a cap of $20M ($10M cash) that one ticket could win so there would be plenty left for the next winners and people stopped playing. Ohio advertised $60M jackpots but everyone knew that it was for show and no one could really collect it so they stopped playing.
If PB only paid $1M with odds of 1:145M, it's wouldn't make sense for any one to play when there are local games with $5M jackpots and odds 1:20M or better.
* you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *
