So far my theory on PB and MM has held true in 2013.

Those who have previously won because it was too easy for them are no longer a factor in the game.  Anyone who wins a $12 mil. MM jackpot, or a $40 mil. PB jackpot did it because it was way too easy for them.  That leaves the rest of us.  It's nearly impossible for the rest of us to win.  Watch PB become the first BILLION dollar jackpot drawing, and then Mega millions will follow.  Whoever finally wins either may go down as being the first jackpot winners that actually had a "tough" time winning.

    What if it's the first time they ever played?

      it doesn't matter if the jackpot is 12 million or 1 billion. The odds stay the same.

          If PB reaches $1B I wont play as I sure dont want to be world famous for being the 1st one ever to hit it!

          Wont be good for anyone's health, family, and psyche.  If its shared by 3 or 4, then ok, $250m each.  However, be ready for beggars.

          But, yes, odds are the same.  $250m - tax - lump sum = $100m.  poor man's dough.
          For $2, no powerplay, $3 gives you $2m(2nd), $40k(3rd) not possible $50k for $2 before. 

          Not for me.  I'll stick with Lotto for 1:45m(2tix-$1) instead of 1 tix for $2.

            The only theory you had so far is that it's easy for winners to win and only hard for losers to win.  How do you prove that when some winners claim they have played them both since they begin?

              This guy has no theory, just an active imagination. Apart from the very very few players who hit on their very first ticket, nobody can claim winning the lottery is easy. Even easy games such as pick 3 & 4 will make you sweat...*shrugs n leaves the thread* Bed

                I've got a theory that some people are too stupid to know that they're stupid. Or that they've only ever had one idea, and that it's completely unrelated to reality.

                    Speaking of jackpot sizes, Mega Millions once again fails to reach $100 million.  It had one winner tonight in New Jersey.  Last year, it set a record high jackpot; now, it is trying to set a record for how long the jackpot can stay under $100 million.

                      MM can't get above 100 mil and some people still think the lottery is rigged. Lotto fever usually happens at around 250 million. If the lottery was rigged, the lottery commission needs to do a better job of not letting the jackpot pop so soon.

                        Look at powerball last dec thru half of january this year. It didn't make it over 100 million. Not much you can do when people hit the jackpot, just the way it is

                          don't know about everyone else, but I'd be happy just to hit the 40 million minimum.....

                            I don't play for either jackpots, I play for the smaller prizes... easier to win.

                              The best time for that would be after a huge jackpot is taken down. Everyone would pay attention to the huge winner and not the measely $40 mil winner...............lol
