if you had the power to change certain things to the MM/ PB jackpots- what would they be?

Well that's fine too though....I mean winning a couple million is better than winning just $7 wouldn't you say?

If I was only interested in winning a couple of million I would just play my state lottery which has much better odds than either the MM/PB.

    Do you have any clue about how odds work? Or lotteries in general, FTM? Your chances of winning have absolutely no relationship to how many other people are playing. How much you win, OTOH, is entirely dependent on how many other people are playing.

    Of course it's people that win the lottery, not states, so your idea is that much sillier.

      What if "my" numbers that I have been playing for years comes up, but I'm in a state that has already won?  Do my numbers get booted out?

      How would you know? Heck how do you know now that it's not happening?? because they said so?? Really

        If ever any lottery was fixed it would be that one.

        As Saylorgirl hinted at, what would be the point of playing?

        In a marketing glitch recently, the MUSL has decided that no one in a state that has just won a jackpot can possibly win the next jackpot. The last winner was in California and no one in that state will even play until people in all the pther paticiapting states have won. Revenue for these games is now expected to drop dramaticall as someone from each state wins, inn effect taking their state out of the running until who knows when.

        same point as it is in playing now....

          Not really since it was a HYPOthetical question and NONE of the ideas or opinions will actually change the outcome of the lottery as it exist today

            I like the guy who said to have all jackpot winners be totally anonymous. That I think is the MOST important thing. Otherwise you have reporters and people calling your phone every hour of the day.

              Sure ... you're absolutely right!!!

              I'd sure hate to find out at some point that I should have won ... by someone uncovering the fraud that took place!
