Right now - 04-01-2013 MM is $42M and PB is $40M.

It's only a difference of $2M but given the different start points and different amounts of rollover, does anyone know the last time MM was higher?

I think the only way it can stay like that is if MM doesn't get hit Tuesday night and PB gets hit Wednesday, and at that it will still be short term.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

    No, it's been awhile

      September 11th I think.

       

      I raised this very same observation on another thread. I agree it will only last for another roll if MM isn't hit. I think MM is finally ready for a long run straight through April!

        I used to remember topics like, "PowerBall finally may has the edge it's been seeking." It's funny how things have changed in less than a year.

            No, this is great. That thread wasn''t addressing specifically what you are in this thread. It was the closest at the time though. I just didn't have any where else to post that remark.

             

            I have taken a great interest in MM of late as there seems to be more consistency in the trends I've been tracking between both multi state games.

              OH, ok Original Bey, was concenred that I did a thread hi-jack or something.

              whiteballz,

              Thanks for the link, good refresher. Also brings to mind all those players here on LP and in general that swore the extra $1 meant they were done with PB.

                When you're talking about PB or MM being higher, you should qualified weather you're talking about their jackpots or cash values.  PB jackpot can be higher while MM cash value is actually higher because of the annuity plans used to calculate their projected jackpot amounts.

                    The only time I can think when it was significantly higher was last year when it hit that 640 million...I cant remember what powerball was but it wasnt near that....and hasnt ever been their highest was that one a few months ago when PB hit 588 million

                      RJOh,

                      I think the 'default', the most commonly referred to amount is what's printed on the tickets, what's posted here at LP on Worldwide Jackpots, what's on the monitors where they sell tickets.

                      I'm just saying.........

                      billionaire2be,

                      Yeah, I remember the MM last year, I think it finally landed on $656M and was split two or three ways. One of the winners was not too far from where I live, in a toen called Red Bud, IL. Someone had started a rumor that someone else in that town had won and he had to try and convince every one it wasn't him.

                      That would definitely be Bang Head

                        Wow!

                         

                        After tomorrow's drawing both multi state games will be tied at 50m annuity! This has not happened in ages. I'm curious as to how this will impact sales in the week ahead. Talk about a RATS' RACE...!

                          If PB rolls tonight, its next jackpot will be $50M, the same as MM but its cash value will be at least $5M less than that of MM. 

                          When PB $2 per line is compared to MM's $1 per line to play for the same size jackpot with cash value $5M larger, MM for me will defintely be higher than PB.
