Do you all use your own numbers or use quick pick?

    I don't mind $40m or the $26m cash option. I play 3 jackpot lotteries 2x's per week, Mega, PB, Lotto. Going for the jackpot $. I sometimes play the Two-Step when it gets above $500k. Any of these would make an improvement.

      Yeah, I wish taxes are not invented

      My grand-pappy once told me about the inventor of taxes.

      He said he was a very mean man, by the name of Screw Z. People.   Bandit

          The lack of $40 million winners is because they don't sell a lot of tickets for the starting jackpot. Sales don't really ramp up until it gets close to $100 million.

          Typical sales at $40 and $50 million are about 11 to 12 million tickets. As a long term average we can expect that there will be 1 winning ticket for every 175 million tickets. That means that we should expect somebody to win a  $40 million jackpot about 12 out of every 175 times, or once every 14 or 15 times.

            40 million is a nice number.

              It's already at $50 million, that was fast!

              Or does it always jump 10mil after no winners?

                If I remember right, that was part of the change when they went to a $2 ticket.

                  Interesting, so are you saying that we should not play the lottery until it reaches over $40 million?

                              Yeah, USAMEGA is the fastest for results.

                              On the other end of the spectrum is the Tennessee Lottery, they are the dead-last-slowest.
