MEGA MILLIONS NEEDS TO MOVE FORWARD.

Also I think it hasn't grown cause everybody or most anyways is buying the powerball tickets too....Also I don't think as many people buy tickets right after someone actually wins...One because its rare to have two jackpots back to back and two the jackpot is so low.....that's just my observation and opinion.....

    Powerball jackpots move too fast to $100 millions. Powerball offers life changing jackpots starting with $40 millions, winning a $40 millions jackpot is life changing. Players are spending the money on powerball, they are leaving nothing to play mega millions.

        If there was a pool of 20 spending $2000. a month each, 5000 lines could be played on every draw.

            If you had played PB and got 4 of 5 you would only be collecting $100. today. How many lines did you play?

              Powerball jackpots move too fast to $100 millions. Powerball offers life changing jackpots starting with $40 millions, winning a $40 millions jackpot is life changing. Players are spending the money on powerball, they are leaving nothing to play mega millions.

              And who is to say that $12 million or $13 million is NOT life-changing?  Mega Millions and Powerball do not need to compete now that they are under the same umbrella.  Players who seek the thrill of higher jackpots that climb faster can play Powerball, and those who are content with lower but still life-changing multi-million dollar jackpots can play Mega Millions... and many people will play both.

                  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.

                  I Agree! Totally....any bigger starting jackpots and these people might want to raise the price......like powerball did

                    It's already happened.......it's just in slow motion for now.

                      $12M is a lot and being a season ticket holder, I would welcome it very much.
