If I am not mistaken POWERBALL is paid in 30 installments,while MEGA MILLIONS is paid in 25 installments.  So,that is why MEGA MILLIONS have a higher cash value than POWERBALL,since they have to pay more in each installment than POWERBALL.

    I've noticed the same thing, except now MM went up $15 million, which sounds about right.  I think that MM is going to have more noticable increases because the number of states offering it almost tripled overnight.  PB won't see too many increases because it only gained 10 states.  Once OH and CA start offering PB, especially CA, there will be more noticable increases.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

      If you look at the jackpot history page for Powerball, it's rollovers have been quite a bit bigger than they normally have, just as Mega Millions's rollovers have been bigger. Tonight it rolled over $19M and the last rollover was $17M. I think both games will be having bigger rollovers and bigger jackpots.
