Seems like MM and OB cannot get over $50 mil. anymore because it's too easy for some people to win.

 

How about altering one of them so we might actually see some big jackpots.  Instead of being 5+1, make the game 15+1.  Make the white ball numbers go from 1-99,999 and the MB/PB number go from 1-49,999.

 

I'd like to see that be won EVERY single consecutive drawing.  Start jackpots off on this new game at $100,000,000

    I'd say it's hard enough seeing as how I haven't hit a jackpot yet LOL!!!

      The 587m Jackpot took up close to two months of draws. I am happy to see a few short runs where people can go into Holidays with Turkey dollars!

            15 + 1? 1-99,999, 1-49,999?

            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.

              Just because it seems easy for some people to win is no reason to punish all the other players who continue to try and win it, after all it's the tickets they buy that build up the jackpots for those few winners.

                Don't know who would play, but count me out.

                Do you want to win, or just see bigger JPs ?

                 

                How could they start at $ 100,000,000 

                if ppl. like me did'nt play ?

                  Problem is that some players would win this game with the greatest of ease.  Most likely from CA, MA, etc.

                    Chances are he has never won even a decent small prize, he just thinks it's too easy for those who do win.

                        The MUSL jackpot games are hard enough to win.  If they weren't, they would never roll over.  Due to guaranteed PB jackpots going too late in their runs, the MUSL might have to "fix" the PB game though, by eliminating minimum rollovers, since MM apparently doesn't have a minimum rollover.

                          Uhh, no I'm not crazy.  Take a look at Powerball lately, it's also becoming a joke.  Two $50 mil. jackpots won in a row.  Someone out there in Kansas right now is laughing all the way to the bank.

                          Actually given the fact these birthday numbers have been winning lately, I'd change the number range on my game & make it 32-99,999, but leave the MB/PB 1-49,999.  Really, I'd like to see anyone win this game every consecutive drawing.  I think if this game were won on consecutive drawings, I'd want to have the FBI or whatever investigate the winners because it would then be highly likely someone would be using cheat codes, etc.

                          To answer your question, I haven't won because it's not too easy for me.  You haven't won either because it isn't too easy for you.  Winners have won because it's too easy for them though.  Make sense?

                            If MUSL ever eliminated the minimum rollovers, their starting jackpots could be stuck at $40M for several drawings which in time would allow MegaMillions jackpots to catch-up.  Then both jackpots might grow at about the same rate eliminating the difference between the games that justifies PB selling for $2.
