Pb & MM in same state...what will happen?


My guess is that some people will play both, the jackpot chasers will play whichever has the higher jackpot, and the Pick 6 games like Lotto (Illinois) will "die off" from lack of interest.

That is unless the Pick 6 game is the only one left with a matrix that people think they can actually hit. If PB and MM expand their matrixes too much, that might help a Pick 6 game. We'll see.

If illinois gets PB I'll probably forget about MM and play PB and the Power Play, hoping for the  5 + 0 for $1,000,000.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.


There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

    Right now if both games were available at the same terminals it would be a hard decision whether to chase one or both.

    MegaMillions $40M jackpot $25M cash with odds of 1:175,711,536
    PowerBall $53M jackpot  $27.7M cash with odds of 1:195,249,054

      It won't be a hard decision for me. I'll chase them both when we get PB!!!!

      However, I only play one line, sometimes 2 lines, and I megaply with MM, and I'll do the powerplay with PB.
