They redesigned the whole site, I like it actually.  What do you all think?

    It looks good.

    I can't understand why they haven't mentioned anything about the changes coming up on there.

        Beginning October 20, 2013, players can select five Mega Millions numbers from 1 to 75 and one Mega Ball number from 1 to 15.  The first drawing will be held on October 22, 2013.

          It looks better, IMO.  I haven't been there in a while b/c USA Mega always has the results posted quicker than it or Powerball.  (Attaboy Todd!)

                lol I agree it is definitely refreshing.....I've always wondered why MM and PB had such 90s websites. They have all these big jackpots and popularity, and frankly the sites were not taking advantage of this. Maybe most people just visit to check the results but I like reading some of the stories

                If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

                  If the redesign means l will win more- great, otherwise: forget it.

                      Hmm... I wonder if something related to the redesign affected the results getting distributed. I noticed the USAMega site doesn't have the results up from last night, only the draw numbers. Eh. Doubt it. Probably a coincidence.

                        I like that winning jackpot ticket on their front page, it's a $5 quick pick, cool.

                          I may look better but seems to have less information on the FAQ page.

                          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.

                            I don't see where they listed the cash amount for the current jackpot.  That is the only amount I care about not the total annunity amount.  I went over to the USA mega page to get that information.

                              On the home page where it says "Estimated Jackpot: $29 Million," right beneath that in small letters it says "Cash Option $19 Million."
