    I'm playing both games evenly. I spend the same amount on each game. But overall, I will be spending more money since I add Mega Millions to the games I am playing.

        Living near the TN/VA state line, I've been playing both games for some time now. I play the same numbers on both games on month-long multi-draws. I also occasionally buy a QP the day of the draw. The only difference now is adding the cost of the Megaplier on Mega Millions.

        I play both games every draw regardless of either's jackpot amount. I'd be just as happy winning 12 million as 200 million.

            Probably won't affect my usual wager that much..I would probably spend more money though when both jackpots are high or one is high than the other.     Just fair warning LP people ......PLEASE DON'T GET ANGRY WHEN I WIN POWERBALL AND MEGAMILLIONS BACK TO BACK!!   LOL  Banana

              I'm gonna play them both, but I'll put more on the one that's higher. If Powerball is higher, I'll play $3 on Powerball and $2 on Mega Millions. If Mega Millions is higher, I'll play $3 on Mega Millions and $2 on Powerball.

                  I no longer play the N.Y. State lottery game, which stinks and play Powerball instead. So I play Mega and Powerball twice a week. I used to go to Connecticut when Powerball got fairly big, now I don't have to.  Banana

                    Since we have Mega Millions in New Mexico, I am playing Powerball, too. I think I will purchase one or two tickets for Mega Millions with the Megaplier, and one or two tickets with Powerball with the Power Play. I probably will not play Hot Lotto as much -- unless it is a large jackpot.

                      Illinois has had Mega Millions and added Powerball. We haven't heard a thing yet about the Megaplier but I'm thinking it might have to happen just to compete.

                      Right now the MM jackpoot is $15,000,000 and the PB is $115,000,000. The buck that would have went to MM will become the Powerplay on the PB.

                      Let's see, oh my head the pain.....$15 vs $115 million, and $250,000 for 5 + 0 vs $1,000,000.

                      Kind of a no brainer.

                      I realize there is that element that can't pass up a drawing and has to be "in action" regarldess of the jackpots, and either way the odds are astronomical, but right now PB is a lot more "bang for the buck".

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

                      Lep

                      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.

                        Am still waiting for Florida to get the Mega but its no problem for me the more the better!!!!  I remember when we got the powerball and the news people were like isn't it going to hurt the Florida lotto, the problem with the lottery system here is that it doesn't get big as it use to be. It have been over 100 million in a long time.

                        They are keeping it small and no one is hardly playing it that I know of!!!! Once and a blue moon I will play when its over 5 million but gees I don't think it will hit 100 anytime soon:( So thank god for the powerball and MegaMillions:)
