If sometime in the future, there was a $1 billion MM or PB Jackpot, how many winners would you like to win? Would you want one person to win the whole jackpot or would you like the jackpot split between multiple people?

Keep in mind this poll is based on what YOU WANT. I don't want to read comments like, it would be impossible for one ticket to win it all because of the large number of tickets that would be sold. For the purpose of this poll we will take for granted that there is a possibility only one ticket could win it all.

                Someone here on LP once posted they wouldn't want to be the one to win a $1 Billion jackpot, I agree with that totally.

                I voted Other- maybe the unique unprecedented situation where all combinations were played but there was no winner!

                Scared

                Seriously though, I always hope for muiltiple winners when the jp amount gets 'obscene'.

                Your milegae may vary.

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

                Lep

                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.

                  it seems like that's what most people want so far. One winner to win it all. Yes Nod

                  I wonder if any of the other options will catch up....

                            I'm not sure if we could define an 'obscene' amount. It seems subjective for each person. Who knows, if one person won, maybe they could give lots of money to charity then it might be considered less obscene? Then again they might not...

                            One thing is for sure, win or lose, I'd get my money's worth from the lotto fever generated by such a large jackpot.

                              Definitely ONE and I don't care who.

                              ONE winning ticket bought by a single individual (not an office pool) would make a sensational news. If it is shared, the news wouldn't be that interesting.

                              His or her face would be plastered all over the world. Not just America.

                              Sensational news!
