"Itseems that Powerball grows faster and I like the fact that you can payan extra buck and get a bigger payout for all but the Jackpot plays."
i kind of notice what you mean by "appears to be faster growth", its a all lie thro
if mega millions and powerhad has the same cash jackpot,
Powerball Would appear to be Mucher larger then MM jackpot thx to longer Annuity for Marketing!
30pb vs mm 25 years annuity
trust me, with more money going to jackpot prize pool per ticket sold for MM,
and soon to be same player base with overall Must lotto states soon to have both early next year
MM is better in ever way far as growth
also for special long runs, MM jackpot has no jackpot cap
so when the next round of record setting jackpot starts up next year, PB will get no where close as MM one, i have a feeling PB will hit the cap over and over many times thro out the next few years
while MM can have 1 good long run that will push that sucker sky high 500+ maybe,
little thing like pay extra buck to win more at lower prizes levels is STATE issue For MM game
, i know some of the new states joining are doing it, like texas does it
so call your state and bitch at them if you want that ripoff deal of 2 bucks for better payouts at lower levels
i say its a ripoff deal cease i think of it like this:
they invented pack5s and stuff for much better odds for lower prize level payouts
i rather have 2 mm/pb tickets then 1 ticket that makes lower payouts a tid better ,sense your not getting better ODDS with 1 ticket , you are with 2 however!,
at lest in my state that is, tn has a uncapped pack 5, so it can get high sometimes, and hell Beats the living hell out of PB 2nd place prize of 200k/1m sometimes , pretty funny when it does
and the odds, Hahahaha take a look at pb and my state pack 5 game
5 of 5 no pb, 1 - 5,138,133 payouts $200,000 $1,000,000 FOR PB
5 of 5 winning numbersm 1 in 575,757
ya 5m vs 500k odds, it makes much more sense to me to buy 2 tickets then 1 over priced one,
now if the over priced one made the jackpot worth more,
then we can have a debate, but to the jackpot gets bigger, more tickets just makes more sense,
why people play the big games for the lower prizes makes no sense to me,
sense your state pack 5 or whatever you have should be a better deal then paying 2 bucks for 1 pb ticket
also , i take it the 2$ powerball ticket to be WORST for the jackpot pool also
, sense that takes even MORE money out of the jackpot prize pool then normaly it would
sense buying 2 1$ tickets both help out the jackpot twice as much as a buying 1 - 2$ TICKET
the added 1$ cost to the 2$ ticket DOES NOT HELP OUT THE JACKPOT PRIZE POOL ANY IN SHAPE OR FORM
in short, even if both games overfall had the same amount of "sales"
jackpot pool would grow even slower for pb
in short, PB is a pice of carp compared to jackpot growth power of a MM , i rest my case.
