Santa Claus is back at the North Pole much to the relief of the MUSL. Both games' jackpots seem to be growing slow and steady.

 

MM rolled over after it's sixth drawing

 

PB is in the spotlight tonight after breaking a "bad" trend of being won at 50m four consecutive times in December.

 

Do you think any of the current jackpots will swell to 100m?

 

Which of the two games will be the first to make it to 100m?

 

Yes, I am asking for educated guess as no one "knows" for sure.

    Logic says Powerball will get there first because of its "fixed" rollovers, assuming it can actually survive six consecutive draws without being won.  Mega Millions needs to survive eleven consecutive draws for it to hit $100 million.

      Logic? You're assuming that PB won't be hit tonight or Wednesday.

       

      I think MM is ready for a long run but that's just me.

                  Powerball needs only not be won this Wednesday, Saturday, OR next Wednesday, then it will be at $100 million for Saturday 1/19.

                    The Powerball can be won anytime aslong as it has a steady run to whicharound May/June time it will be another big Jp! Atleast $330million if not another $580million. Because this is the next time I will be in the states (Florida) an I wanna participate in it!

                        Yep.

                        I have been looking at the past Jackpots, Lumpsum amounts, and assuming 39.6% in Fed taxes since the Jan 2 drawing, the in hand $ in a tax free state like TX.

                        One question about the cash lumpsum portion to Purse ratios.

                        So, with at 40MM purse, the take home this time around (Dec 29) was 26.4MM and after 35% (2012 top rate), in hand = 17.2

                        IF I do the same for the subsequent drawings -

                        Jan 2 - Jackpot = 50MM, in hand, 32.7 (or 65.4% of purse) with take home of 19.8MM

                        Jan 5 - Purse 60MM, Cash lumpsum - 39.2 (65.3) and post Fed tax = 23.7MM

                        Jan 9 - Purse - 70MM, Cash lumpsum (on PB site) - 44MM (62.3%) of purse and after tax - 26.6MM

                         

                        So, my question - Why is the ratio of Purse/cash option lower and historically, does it keep getting lower each time the purse grows? What impacts this number that MUSL declares for each drawing?

                            It will be Powerball because people can't buy PB tickets in CA yet.
