    That sucks only one million increase.  You would think that 41 states could generate more than a million increase!-weshar75

      Mega Millions needs a game matrix change. We need bigger jackpots.

        I feel that it is the lowest jackpot increase for Mega Millions ever.

            I feel that it is the lowest jackpot increase for Mega Millions ever.

            It's happened twice before, both within the last few months:

            - July 31 to August 3, 2012 - $12M to $13M
            - October 19 to October 23, 2012 - $12M to $13M

            And the jackpot had jumped from $12 million to $14 million a handful of times, mostly within the last couple years.  Before the last matrix change (June 24, 2005), the jackpot would frequently increase only $2 million from the minimum $10 million (May 17, 2002 to June 21, 2005) or $5 million.

            Also, it's interesting to note that the minimum jackpot has only been won six times in the history of Mega Millions/The Big Game:

            - November 13, 2001 ($5M)
            - July 27, 2004 ($10M)
            - September 19, 2006
            - September 26, 2007
            - September 1, 2009
            - May 28, 2010 


            (Note: Todd only has consistent jackpot data available on USA Mega going back as far as June 24, 2000.  It's possible that examples of all of the above exist before this date.)

                    It's usually a low increase when PB is at a large number.   I would be quite content to win at 12 or 13.   It would provide nicely for my family properly invested , providing 3 times the income of now for at least 40 years.

                      Powerball can do that for $2 with a $40 Millions starting jackpot. Mega Millions jackpots are not keeping up with inflation. Mega Millions starting jackpots need to be $40M like Powerball or higher in order to bring a higher playership.

                              I agree with all above that the momentum around the Mega Millions of late has become somewhat lackluster. I though am careful of my comments in this regard as I don't want to build a case for the MUSL to increase those ticket prices as well. I know its inevitable and maybe this was all a part of the strategy for both games from the beginning.

                               

                              SHOW the players better than we can TELLL them.
