I just found it interesting that earlier this year, Powerball was at $25 million with $15 million cash value.
Today it's at $25 million with a cash value of $12 million.
I know it changes because of how many tickets people buy, but doesn't this seem a bit drastic of a difference already?
And why does MegaMillions always - always - have higher cash value amounts than Powerball? Does the way they invest that much different? And investment doesn't matter anyway if you take the Cash option, so...?? Is it because Powerball is overextended and MM doesn't have as many states?
I know some of these questions have been answered before, but not all in one spot (to my knowledge).
Thanks for clearing this up for me!
