Now that the excitement of Mega Million is over, how will this affect tonight's Power Ball sales?

Since so many people spent a lot of money last night on the Mega Millions lottery and didn't win, do you think they will still purchase a Power Ball ticket for tonight?

      Well my take on the Mega Mania was that even though I did not win anything ...spent $15 bucks had one number on all those tickets regardless it got many American's excited at the huge pot BUT I could live on that $34 mil in Powerball tonite LOL!  I will buy 10 dollars worth and with a little luck who knows.  Hopefully it will carry over the excitement to the Powerball game.  Dollar and a Dream the old NY lottery motto still lives on. Good Luck tonite!

        Probably in Ohio its state game Classic Lotto with a jackpot of $18.0M and odds of 1:14M of winning the jackpot will be looking attractive again for a week or so.

              I purchased my PB tic on Sunday when I got my MM tic and my Tx Lotto tic and my Tx 2 Step tic, AND my Cash 5 tic.

              I love the anticipation!

                I guess it all depends on the type of person they are and whether or not they put all their eggs in one basket. If they didn't win this one: their's always another game to play: plan accordingly.

                  i always play both, however am back to my normal 1 buck qp LOL

                  i up it to 2 bucks for 100m annuity plus, or 50m cash, 3 for 80ish million cash, and once it breaks 100m  cash, or 200m  annuity i go up and stay at 5

                  only time i go wild is when 300m level is reached, like this past jackpot was new world record for cash, i spent far to much out of normal LOL

                    That's a smart way to play. I read somewhere once, (can't remember the source, but it made sense,) that when the jackpot is peanuts, bet peanuts; when the jackpot is high, bet high.

                    It's easy to get caught up in the hype and frenzy when we have a jackpot that high. I put $5 on it, and really had to resist the temptation to go out and buy more tics. I wasn't surprised that there was more than one winner. Look at it this way... it was split 2 ways already. If you or I or anyone else had won, now it's a 3 way split. While it's still a whole lot of $, it's split at a level that doesn't excite us toooooo much. LOL.

                      I don't get why people go crazy over a $300 million jackpot. To me, be it $3 million, $30 million, or $300 million, I would be just as happy with any of those and am willing gamble the same amount of money regardless of the size of the jackpot. The odds of winning such JP's are so outrageous, that to me, buying more tickets really doesn't make it less outrageous. All I want is my foot in the door with a couple of chances on each one.

                      I tend to spend more on the smaller JP's where the odds are better and the smaller winnings are a little better. $20,000, $100,000 or $500,000 isn't huge, but I sure as hell could use any one of those.

                          I hear ya, but I guess I'd be just as excited to win $3 million as I would be $300 million, and thus the incentive to win either JP is the same.
