 1. One guy winning $100 millions.

 2. One hundred unrelated people winning $1 million each.

 Seriously, I prefer number 2. And El Gordo is like this.

          I'll go with the flow here, 2.

          No individual needs hundreds of millions.

          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.

                If I was the guy that won the $100 million I'd pick #1. Lol.

                If I wasn't a winner at all I don't really care.

                        Hands Down in these time(s) I rather see many people be helped,

                        I divided the amount in the tarp funds by the amount of mortgage balances out there and still 222 billion remained out the first 700, now i certainly am glad of the job Obama is trying to do but he were able to have been spoken to by the american people as derctly as the Wall Street pleaded with him, what would be there arguement for helping EVERYONE and the next day we all would be debt free? They scream socialism to the hills..

                        Please Understand i don't want to derail Topic of the post(s) subject or narrative, I just rather see 1,000,000 million loaves of bread and fish handed out so everyone can eat...

                        When you see the nature of someone to have it ALL, it is sad when later they themselves realize there alone and on the defensive as to wheter someone is trying to be a friend or get there money and this fact repeats itself more than a million times, that is a fact!Patriot

                          Hey Ambelamba,

                          I truly believe #2.  And that is attainable for any of the states right now.  I would love if CA  remove the bonus number in their Super lotto plus. with  their 5/49.  Right now if one were to get 5/6 without the bonus, they would win somwhere around 20-30k.  and its usually 3 or 4 people who win that.  But if they split the my scenario's jackpot without the bonus #, they could win around 1 million each.  Making 4 people really happy every few days would be great!  Just wishful thinking on my part.

                            When I play MM, I megaply because it could mean $1 million for 5 of 5 without the megaball. While that isn't really enough for me to retire (right now), it would probably set me up to retire in about 10 years when I'm 65. I hope, maybe. Then again, who knows... in tens years it might take a million bucks just to live a year with the way the dollar is going. LOL.

                            I'd rather have 10 million after taxes.

                              Depends on if that "one guy" is me!   LOL  Just Kidding.....   I like to hear stories about both situations.   That is why there are different "levels" of lottery prizes.   Big progressive jackpots and lower prizes or scratch-offs....Different prizes appeal to various players...   Large jackpot prizes are nice to stir up dreams but smaller jackpots are good for more "down to earth" fantasy...... So for me BOTH are appealing..in different ways.
