Do you think that they are trying to reach for Billion Dollar Jackpots with the new structure.

Picking from 75 numbers that is like playing keno.

Highest Jackpot ever was mega millions at 640 million with this new structure and higher jackpot rollovers i think they are wanting to create billionares

    I don't know if their game plan was to see the jackpot hit $1,000,000,000 (I'm hoping it does), but I do know that when the Mega Millions jackpot was 640 million their ticket sales were insane. People were still lined up trying to buy tickets when the terminals closed just before the draw.

        I agree MM is definitely trying to hit a billion dollar annuity jackpot. To create a true billionaire, the annuity prize would have to exceed over $3 billion.

            I think they are just trying to compete.

            Sales fell after PB took a chance.

            So now they will take a chance.

            The new MegaBall structure will be very alluring for some people.

            You can do the three same wheels with three differnt sets of Bonus ball numbers.

            That might be very enticing for wealthier players.

            All Keno is not equal.

              I know of a website that offers you the chance to double the jackpot value - if the jackpot reaches at least $500 million this online company offers you this feature called the 'Doublejackpot' feature available for UK customers - and what is more you don't have to pay any taxes on the winnings. Send me a message if you want to know.

                  With the odds at winning the MM 2nd tier prize at 18.5 million to 1, you would have better luck with most state lotteries. As a comparison, the odds on PB 2nd tier prize is 5.1 million to 1.

                          Surprised by the low number results. Maybe it will be hit faster then i thought. Also see the ticket sales are consistent.

                            They are trying to make as much money for themselves as they possibly can.

                            That's job one.

                            That being said, a jackpot that is all but impossible to win, such as it is, could create an environment conducive to the realization of a billion dollar jackpot.

                            We shall see what we shall see.

                              I doubt there will ever be a billion dollar jackpot because it will still be too easy for some to win.
