Which jackpot will hit a new United States record first?

Right now, Mega Millions holds the current United States jackpot record at $390 million shared by two winning tickets. However, Powerball has the single winning ticket record at $365 million. That's why with the Powerball Jackpot starting at $40 million, I would vote for Powerball to hit a new record. What do you think about my comment? Players can post and vote on this topic.
I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

Powerball was one roll away from a record on this last run so I say without a doubt powerball. Mega millions rolls to slowly.-weshar75

It doesn't matter how fast or slow it rolls. What matters is the odds and how much goes towards the jackpot from each ticket. The odds are essentially the same for both games, but each PB ticket puts about twice as much money in the jackpot. If you go by the advertised jackpot PB has even more of an advantage, because for every $1 in the jackpot MM advertises about $1.37, while PB advertises about $1.60.
On average they should both sell the same number of tickets (175 million)before producing a winner, and they both have the same chance of selling 3 that many (525 million) before producing a winner. At 525 million tickets sold PB would have a cash jackpot of about $336 million and would advertise it as $537 million. MM would have a cash value around $168 million and advertise $230 million. The MM record of $240 million cash sold over 700 million tickets before producing a winner.

Our new pool at work plays the Powerball, but I have always been a fan of the MegaMillions, so that is what I voted for.
And being a child of the 80's I was a big fan of the movie MegaForce, so MegaMillions is the perfect JP for me!

I voted PB because of the $40M starting jackpot, but as far as a record jackpot just maybe by the time that happens both games will have combined into one or we'll have a true national lottery.
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.

If the topic gets locked, then Powerball would get the most votes. I hope Powerball continues to roll.

What are the odds that MegaMillions and PowerBall will reach over $100 million
or $200 million at the same time? Can that happen?

Well, right now, Mega Millions is only two rolls away from a record, at least a record cash jackpot.

I voted for MM to be the next jackpot record breaker. Why? Because all logic seems to point to Powerball being able to do it first (higher starting j/p, faster rolls...)... and since I am an underdog-rooter... (not to mention the fact that MM is now at 241... that doesnt hurt the sway of my vote/reasoning) MM!!!
of course... I also continue to root for the Chicago White Sox, the NY Yankees, and the Arizona Cardinals... so maybe YOU should be safest to bet OPPOSITE me.

I think both will roll. I had switched to MM but decided while ago to get a PB ticket as well. My new "strategy" is to switch to a different 7-11. I told the clerk I wanted powerplay, he gave me a ticket without it and tried to charge me $3 and then I had him redo it since it did not say powerplay. Does this happen often?
