    Well crap, I meant to hit 260 above and hit 270 so I'll go 270! It seems like when the jackpot games get in the 200's the media hypes it up and everyone buys that 1 OR 5 tickets.

      i say 250m to 260m looks about right

       

      am so happy we have a 200m level jackpot,

      where in range where it can  take off like a rocket

       

      we are only 2 rolls away to  300m range when the magic  begins

      with all these players i say we could could go form  say 260m to 390m jackpot cap,

       

      really with all these players we could only be 3 rolls away to new records folks

       

      so enjoy the high jackpot while it lasts , we wont be seeing it again anytime soon

       

      ps. the 2 holdout lotto states without powerball  will be kicking  them selfs for not joining with the rest of cross selling states if we go to 300m range

            I'll certainly take the odds, but I have something bigger than that on my side. Or should I say someone?Wink

                  To match Powerball, Mega Millions should start its jackpots at $16 million and have minimum rollovers of $4 million (since the cash options for those figures in MM would be comparable with Powerball's cash options for its opening jackpots and minimum rolls of $20 million and $5 million).  Of course, if Mega Millions did that, it would probably increase its matrix to over 200 million combinations too.

                    I was updating and checking my PowerBall file in anticipation of it starting in Ohio next month and found a couple of duplicate combinations.  I checked USAMega PB file and found they weren't mistakes.

                     01/09/08 - 02 13 20 21 23    +24
                     02/08/03 - 02 13 20 21 23    +35

                     12/27/00 - 15 22 24 32 39    +18
                     04/03/93 - 15 22 24 32 39    +18

                    I hope to have my system adapted for PB when it starts, some of the rules I use for MegaMillions don't apply.

                      Cool. Will you be playing PB when it comes to your state?

                        Yes, I will include both MM and PB in my budget in the future, probably only playing the one with the larger jackpot.

                          Powerball is actually having higher rolls than Mega Millions now.  Both Powerball and Mega Millions had a jackpot won on their tenth draws in their runs.  Last Saturday, Powerball's cash jackpot awarded was $101 million (annuity $211 million).  The Friday, March 5 Mega Millions cash jackpot awarded was $83 million ($134 million annuity).  Before the games cross-sold, Mega Millions would have the higher jackpot rolls, and for most of that time, Mega Millions was the harder game to win.  Now, Powerball is the harder game to win and has the higher rolls.  I think the main reason Powerball is having higher cash jackpot rolls is because their advertised jackpots at any given cash value are higher than Mega Millions', and this plays off the psychological factor.  Therefore, I wouldn't be surprised if Mega Millions restructures their annuity jackpot as well, although I hope this doesn't happen soon, because this would probably also mean another matrix change for that game, which would probably put the odds worse than 1 in 200 million!

                            I'm going to win it either way.

                            Edit: Oh, and before you ask, it's going to be $120 million.
