Could you imagine if Powerball costed: $5 per ticket....Every 4 months Powerball reaches: $300 Million at: $1 dollar the ticket...Could you imagine the Powerball jackpot had each ticket cost: $5...

It will had been: $300 Million x 5 = $1.5 Billion dollars Powerball jackpot EVERY 4 MONTHS...Or there will had been: FIVE $300 Million dollars Powerball Jackpot winners every 4 months...Five for Powerball and $5 for MegaMillions...

Had Powerball cost: $10 the ticket you will had seen a: $3 Billion dollars PB Jackpot every 4 months and $3 Billion dollars MegaMillions Jackpot every 4 months...That´s: TWENTY $300 Million dollars Jackpot Winners every 4 months...And is: SIXTY, $100 Million dollars Jackpot Winners every 4 months...lol....

That´s: 240 $100 Million Jackpot Winners every year....lol...240 of them, JUST THE $100 Million winners not taking into account the other lesser Powerball/MegaMillions Jackpot Winners...

The Forex trades: 1.6 Trillion dollars EVERY day, that´s more than the GDP of the Carribbean Central America, COMBINED. Enough to feed every crook out there for centuries...To all Geniuses & Powers Countries of the World the Planet needs breakthroughs in all Medicine, Veterinary, Biology related fields, Psychology, Population Psychology/Sociology..They need to genetically ingeneer new plants species/types to give more variety of plants and thus have more resources for combating diseases¨

      And this is a consolation thought to the countries of: Mexico, Philliphines, Russia, Brazil, Nigeria, Indonesia, Pakistan, Bangladesh, Japan....

      Because the population of all the states of the USA that have Powerball & MegaMillions is: 217 Million that means that the countries of:

      Mexico, Phillippines, & Japan

      each of you will have had: 120, $100 Million dollars Winners Every year, had they had: Powerball and had it cost: $10 the ticket...

      the countries of:

      Russia, Nigeria,  Pakistan, Bangladesh

      all 4 of you would had had like: 210 or 215, $100 Million dollars Powerball/MegaMillions Winners every year had it cost: $10 the ticket...

      the countries of:

      Brazil, Indonesia

      you will had had the same the USA HAS which will had been: 240, $100 Million dollar Powerball/MegaMillions Winners each year...

      the countries of: Germany, Vietnam, Ethiopia, and Egypt..

      would had had the same number of winners Mexico, Japan and the Philliphines have but it will had cost them like: $11 dollars the ticket instead of $10...

        But if they decide to create this PB/MM for $10 or $11 the ticket, PLEASE chose something else some other game, chess, monopoly, something, some kind of accessible easy game because Powerball is very, very similar to that bird-devil in the movie: Jeepers Creepers2 with HUGE CLAWS....

        I would not want anyone getting cardiac arrest, trying to win Powerball and the bouncing balls oh my gosh...

        i think you got better odds winning the supercomputer that beat Kasparov, beating it: 5,000 times than winning Powerball with 1 ticket...And the ghost similarity...God help us....

        was also interesting is that is only a small population of any state that plays the lottery and a small population of that that plays Powerball/MegaMillions so even though the population of the Powerball states is: $217 Million the ones that play Powerball might be like: 20 million or 30 Million people i dont know....

            That´s: 240 $100 Million Jackpot Winners every year....lol...240 of them, JUST THE $100 Million winners not taking into account the other lesser Powerball/MegaMillions Jackpot Winners...

            But do you think that is something big??? That is nothing....Remember scratchoffs?? Each state has like: 40 types of scratchoffs...They cost: $2, $5, $10, $20, $30....If each one of them was a machine lotto and all the states were to join forces you would had seen: 240, $100 Million dollars Jackpot Winners x 14 = 3,360; $100 Million dollars Powerball Winners in the USA every year...Becareful is more like: 17 or 23 and not 14....

            And let me spell it out...That´s...

            3,360 yearly Powerball Jackpot winners each winner of $100 Million dollars....But you know what i think, someone had known about it for years but something like that is an: ATTACK ON THE STATUS QUO....You know why i think also this is not allowed...Because there are a lot of strange, foreign, different culture people that go to the USA every year which to the status quo of the USA will be startling, creepy....You also know how they say that many terrorrist have studied or visited the USA so are hackers....And if one of them won the: $100 Million could pose a problem to the USA waging war against the USA, cost the USA more than $100 Million, the USA just to mobilize the army to another country can cost like: $700 Million dollars and $700 Million to withdraw/return home....

            When the 911 occured, i will read on the newspapers that Bin Laden´s networth was: $200 million or $100 Million or $50 Million, cant remember....

            this must have been known since the 80´s but in the 80´s; $100 Million dollars would had been more like: $400 Million dollars in the USA...And $400 Million dollars in the hands of a terrorrist....Totally unacceptable....

            because you have that that´s the reason why online gambling should not be allowed...

                and a code for rare people, for people that have rare features wise, tiny minorities, disabled people, people with strokes, those kinds of people probably will never win...or people important to this planet....

                I think that online gambling should be let to games that are tiny in nature, like Pick2, Pick2+1, Pick1+2, Pick2+2, Pick2+3, ect that cost no more than 25 cents...or to sports....THAT´S IT...If they are going to let it go towards other stuff of online gambling like sport betting or Pick2 [tiny games], or other forms of online gambling make it be [have the environment of] like VA Cash5 for 25 cents or like: WVA Cash25 for 25 cents...That´s it....Otherwise you are draining people money...No more than: 25 cents...

                if is online sports gambling or other games make it so that if someone quadruples or (17x) their bets they win: 4x or 17x the Prize (like pick3 & Pick4)...You know nintendo64 mario cart: i will bet real money ANYONE, ANYDAY to race in that game (best game i´ve ever seen)...

                    Had Powerball cost: $10 the ticket you will had seen a: $3 Billion dollars PB Jackpot every 4 months and $3 Billion dollars MegaMillions Jackpot every 4 months...That´s: TWENTY $300 Million dollars Jackpot Winners every 4 months...And is: SIXTY, $100 Million dollars Jackpot Winners every 4 months...lol....

                    That´s: 240 $100 Million Jackpot Winners every year....lol...240 of them, JUST THE $100 Million winners not taking into account the other lesser Powerball/MegaMillions Jackpot Winners...

                    Powerball ran a promotion with the powerplay option and on Saturday it was 10 times. The payoffs indicate about 1 out of 4 tickets used the powerplay option. Powerplay only affects the secondary prizes and gives players a better return, but it looks like 75% of players are still buying $1 tickets. 

                    PB and MM are now based on volume of play with millions of players and the jackpots grow accordingly. It's possible some of the players that spend $5 a drawing might buy one ticket instead of 5, but I'll bet most of them would quit playing. Using the present matrix at $5 a ticket, $487 million would have to be wagered just to get a 50% chance of the jackpot being hit. 

                    The lotteries already have $5, $10, and $20 scratch-offs with overall chances of winning something at 1 in 3. Would the same players play a game with overall chances of 1 in 40 with odds against winning jackpot 195 million to 1?

                      Pumpi, you need to take into account that if the cost was $5 per ticket, people wouldn't be buying as many lines. Most people, out of the ones that would actually play, would probably only buy 1 ticket. Your profit and jackpot figures are exaggerated.

                        I rarely buy the powerplay option on mine, except when they run specials like they just did.

                        It catches up real quick when paying $2 for each ticket, so I only bought 2 tickets at a total of $4. That was plenty for me -- I prefer to stick with $1 each with the hope of winning a large jackpot.

                        So if tickets hit $5 each? Forget it.
