Kinda interesting to see the sales numbers since the games started cross-selling.  The states are still playing heavily on the side of the game that was originally sold in their state.  Original Powerball states are not buying many Mega Millions tickets and original Mega Millions states (which tend to be very populous) are not buying many PowerBall tickets.  Not that is was a failure to start offering both games but you can definetly still see a bias toward the original game.

    People just need to get used to it. I think, eventually, they will start playing whichever game has the higher jackpot.

      Considering how much bigger the jackpot rolls have been, I'd say it's working quite well.

        i did a post about how much better pb jackpot was on getting up much faster then old rolls did

         

         

        take old big jackpots for pb , on 2009 augest

        on its 9th roll it was  102m

        on Our current jackpot thats on its 9th roll, its 170m

         

        you tell me, in 9 rollovers you  have a jackpot at 102m, vs current jackpot with   9 rollovers thats 170m pb jackpot!

        is it working you ask

        , ITs not only working, ITS far greater then must think

         

        take it this way

        , it taken 13th rollover draws for  it to reach 161m during augest 2009 run,  vs  we did  it in 9 rollovers flat

        vs their old 13 needed to even reach near 170m

         

        i have never Ever seen jackpots fly this fast,  so its cross selling is working great

        am <snip> sure all states are making more Money selling both games

        then just selling one

        people like the big jackpot games, they play them, its that simple

         

        o and mega millions doing great too

        but powerball has by far got the best of the cross selling agreement,  its like a totaly new game  on how much faster it gets to big jackpots in shorter time

          I can play both but don't play either one. I do know people who got excited that PB was coming here. LOL like they couldn't win at MM so now they're gonna try to win PB with even worse odds.

          Too bad both games are run by the state! Could you imagine the changes that would be made to both games in an effort to get us to play one game over the other?  Ok just dreamin' here : )
