        With 10 more drawings before Christmas, PowerBall could be $150M and MegaMillions could be $200 before then.  How big do they have to be to be worth winning?

          It does not matter if the Jackpot is $20 Million or $150 Million. Just as long as you Win !!!!

            In 2012 when the powerball changes to $2 I think that a full ticket with powerplay will run about $15.  Can someone confirm that for me?  I am curious because I know that 5 lines without powerplay is $10 but I am not sure if it is $15 with powerplay or $20 with powerplay.  Would like someone at LP to confirm this for me.  Thank you very much!-weshar75

              Yep, 5 lines with Powerplay will cost $15, weshar.

              But would that extra buck for Powerplay be better spent on a Mega Millions ticket?

              That's the question.

                They can keep it...I haven't won anything much in the times I have played and added the mulitplier. Talk about used...change a game in mid stream

                and just be expected to keep on paying and playing. $40 million? So what.

                  In a previous thread about the changes next year in PB and MM it was said that they will both be $2 for a ticket and 5 + 0 will pay $1,000,000. With another dollar played, Powerplay or Megaplier, 5 + 0 will pay $2,000,000.

                  I'm not sure that's official, but it was discussed.

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                      I thought it was only PB that is going up to $2

                      MM is staying at $1 for now

                      What?

                        That's right but how long MM will resist joining the $2 ripoff is the question.

                        Maybe if there's a mass exodus from PB to MM because of the cost, they'll remain at $1.

                        Let's hope so.

                            As far as MM not following suit, if PB is going to double the ticket price and double the jackpot start point from $20 million to $40 million, do you really think MM is going to stay with a $12 million dollar starting jackpot and a $1 ticket?

                              I think powerball will lose customers because of the asking price of $2 and because it lets mega millions have more people willing to play a dollar on a ticket than $2.  I mean think about it if you are going it to a convienent store to purchase stuff or gas you will think about the cost more if you have to spend $2 for a ticket rather than $1 for a ticket.  Don't you think!-weshar75
