Never  have  played  it   since   the   change   

 

 

Dont  care  for  the   game  at  all   now      Thumbs Down

 

 

But  sooner  or  later  ,   I  am  sure  they  will  reach   their  Billion  dollar  jackpot  ,   that  they  are  looking   for

Well that's a good point. If the PB could reach half a billion dollars with better odds, then it's more conceivable that the MM will be the one to reach $1B first. But of course it'll take many months to get there and once someone wins it, it will once again take many months to climb back up to any sizable figure again. The PB will still get more attention with larger starting JPs and larger rollovers.

      Have not played MM since the matrix change. I'll take my "dollar and a dream" to Hot Lotto next time I decide to play a ticket. I hate computerized drawings but my numbers would have a better chance at hitting in Hot Lotto than Mega Millions.

        Not.

         I am bidding my time until my subscription ends at the end of the year and then it will be adios to MM for me. Even when the JP exceeds $700M which I  expect will be around December 31 I will not be moved.

        That money's gone fo ever

            Sleep Wake up! Odds are ridiculous!!! Do not contribute a penny to make it a billion dollar jackpot. Don't play a game that is next to impossible to win just because you're dreaming. Dream on Sleep.

              The jackpot is not growing fast enough, considering the ridiculous odds. Will love it as soon as they get rid of the 2x multiplier, which is a ripoff. I play it simply because...you have to be in it, to win it.

                It stinks.

                Very reminiscent of Chevy Chases' Vegas Vacation where he went into the rinky-dink casino and went up to a game and the dealer said, "Pick a nunmber" and he did and the dealer said, "Wrong."

                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 have won $5 because of the megaplier.  I have a ten draw ticket for the whole month of november and I have won only once out of the first three draws on the ticket.  I like that it is only a $1 to play but if it was $2 to play I would like it better because maybe the odds would be lower.  Anyways it costs me $2 because I play the multiplier on it.  I guess they do not want players to think that they are trying to be like powerball too much.  But if the odds were better than they are now and the jackpots grew faster.  I think that more people would give mega millions their money.-weshar75

                    LOL.

                    That gives me an idea.

                    MM should change the prize they award for getting just the Megaball with the 2x Megaplier.

                    Instead of the measly $2, they should give you a year's subscription to the Jelly of the Month Club.

                    It's the gift that keeps on giving.

                      I don't like the new system, but I still get 1 or 2 tickets.  i did win the first drawing, but haven't since then.  I prefer Powerball.  But to be honest I will be happy winning either lottery game.

                              Ridge- Was not a fan before not one now, all of that could change in a heartbeat should l win though. I play $2-3 when it climbs over $100 mil so no surprise there. These folk who came up with this new matrix probably had mathematicians onboard convincing them that winning with this new format is extremely difficult. So far they have been right. Players could be fooled by looking at the lower number of mega balls. Its bait & switch at its best.
