Powerball and Mega Millions both have two drawings a week, we'll call it 104 drawings a year.
Oh those 104 drawings, 12 to 15 of them a year, for each game, produce jackpot winners.
15 of 104 is 14.42%.
Since only 14.42% of drawings pay a jackpot, why would anyone want to narrow that down so much more by waiting for jackpots of $100M or more?
Sounds like people getting in their own way.
Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.
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.
