I want this so bad to happen....I was to see like 6 Big lottos in the U.S, each Starting jackpot been 100 million another one been 200 million, another one been 300 million, another one been 400 million....

Do you think that you will ever see this in your lifestime, in the history of the U.S....

I didn't say grow to 100 million but instead the base/starting jackpot been 100 million and up....I mean even if the drawings are once a month....

    And i think it can be possible because Florida has a lotto that pays 25 million for 3 dollars and the 3 dollars are not mandatory they are optional and Florida is only 1 state of the U.S....

    Now if you combine all of the states and charge 5 dollars per ticket you should come up with a lottery that pays 100 or 200 million base jackpot...I am talking even if it pays once a month....

    Common sense tells me is got to be....

      I kind of doubt it because they'd have to sell at least 20 million tickets at $5 each, plus for the states to buy on they'd need to be getting a nice cut of that and there would have to be a healthy profit for those states, outside the taxes. It's late so I'm sure this isn't going to look right but do the math at Lotto Reports by looking up the sales figures for Mega Millions and Powerball, look how it adds up until there's a winner.

       

      Also, what if no one wins? What becomes of that 100 million? Does it roll over for another long awaited monthly drawing? I think a month would be too long to wait, I'm sure they'd probably sell more than 20 million tickets given that much time though so maybe it might work. I dunno I need sleep.

      You can't predict random.

        A game like this is really unnecessary. The base prizes of today's jackpot games are enough for anybody. We don't need a billion dollar jackpot.
