 The rollover rate for MM is becoming lousier. Seriously, just 1 mil increase for Friday night?! Has that ever happened? This kind of thing never happened before. Now I really want Cali to participate in PB because of the lousy MM. The MM is definitely losing fun. What do you guys think?

    I never watched the rollovers, only the numbers.

      I don't watch the rollovers or numbers, I'm always in forever.   Cheers

        Yeah I was surprised at the rollover also. But...... the bottom line is I can retire on $10 million. It doesn't have to be a hundred million. Probably be better if it wasn't hundreds of millions.

          I Agree!     Too much sugar can spoil the recipe.

            People are putting their extry money on the much bigger pot PB ($158 Million) right now.

            MM will be back.

                If I was you, I'd stick with the California SuperLotto Plus. Mega Millions 13 mil jackpot is too small to justify 175.7 million to 1 odds. The SuperLotto Plus jackpot is at 8 mil and the odds are better. If you manage to win, you'll take home about 3.9 million after federal taxes. More than enough cash to live a comfortable lifestyle for a while in my opinion.

                  I do look at the roll over amount, but I don't really care what the amount is, I'm in.  I'll still play multiple lines on the MM.  I only play 1 line on the PB since they raised it to $2.

                      According to Lotto Report, last night's and Saturday's sales amounts were the lowest ever so MM was probably already in the hole supporting a $12M jackpot.  If last night sales didn't pull them out, the next roll-over might not be any better. 

                      Looks like PB $2 price is more attractive to players when MM jackpot is $12M and its jackpot is $100M+.

                          Agreed NightStalker,

                          Im not changing my play based on JP amount, or my numbers for that matter. 2 lines MM and 2 lines PB. That it for me.

                            The regular Mega millions players are getting tired of pushing the jackpot above $40 Millions for someone else to win it.

                            I like the powerball everybody has to pay $2 to play the big jackpots.

                              Powerball is more attractive to players even at the starting jackpot of $40 millions.

                              Yeah, I know why you play powerball when mega millions is at $40 millions for $1 relative to powerball at $40 millions for $2.

                              Mega millions jackpot gets to $40 millions because of millions of losers that decided to play at the $12 millions starting jackpot.
