Are there any states that sell both PowerBall and MegaMillions?  I'm thinking not, and I always thought it's because the population of one state couldn't/wouldn't support both.  But then my state added Hot Lotto to its stable of lottery products, and really, what's the difference?  In fact, I'm thinking MegaMillions would bring more sales than Hot Lotto.  With Hot Lotto the jackpots are pretty low, only a little over $4 million right now, while MegaMillions tickets cost the same amount ($1) and the jackpots start much higher.  So why are there no states that sell both PB and MM?

    No state sells both PB and MM because PB forbids it.

      I see, that makes sense.  I guess PB sales would be hurt when MM got really high and vice versa.
