I was wondering what if someone won the Powerball Jackpot $500 million with megaplier would that mean they actually won $1 billion dollars???

    No, the power  play does not apply to the JP, only the 2nd tier prizes.

        They would have to charge a lot more for the option, say an extra $3 to support the prize,

        maybe even that's not enough.

        But if they monitor these boards you may have just given them an idea.

            The games would have to declare bankruptcy if it was.

              I think he gave them a better idea in his topic title - MEGA-PILER

              Wait a minute....

              That's MY idea!  Hyper

              And I'm willing to sell it for a mere ten million.

                Look for a poster named Chip p2, I think that's it, I can't remember what lottery he works for, but he was on here answering ??s

                I'll go to search and see if I can find him.

                  He's with Kentucky.

                  Works with a guy named Casebeer.

                  You can't make up a better name than that.

                  I get thirsty just thinkin' about it.
