    I haven't played MM since the changes took effect. So far, I hate it but I may change my tune and buy some tickets if the MM jackpot rolls to $300 mil or more.

    $300 Million? It might take a while to get there. I wonder how much is being spent on mega millions per drawing.

      No, it's f'n ridiculous that the 2nd prize odds are 1 in 18 million and you get a measly $1 million for beating those odds.

      You have to play the MM to win. I bought $1 MM quick pick ticket.

            Lottery players are spending $1 per drawing. It is the reason why the MM jackpot has not been won.

              Got 10$ on the first new draw, so i can't complain yet. Plus it's something to play on tue/fri and only a minor loss if i lose.

              How much did you spend? Congratulations on your $10 win.

                Haven't hit a single # yet, got two lines for three drawings, prob. won't do that again.

                Losing money is not fun. I do not blame you.

                  According to the Lottoreport website $26.3M was spent on MM tickets and $40.2M was spent on PB tickets for their last drawings.  Now that PB was won and reset to a $40M jackpot, I expect more will be spent on MM for their next drawings.

                    I live in New York, but I did not win the Powerball jackpot. How do I get that information from the lottoreport?

                      What? Going to the lottoreport website isn't any harder than coming to this lotterypost website and not winnng the PB jackpot doesn't make you unique.

                        I have to thank you for giving me such a nice lottery tip. We are all unique individuals? Can you imagine a world where every culture has the same A$$HOLES? Yes, you can imagine that.

                          MM is increased by $5m every draw, so I think it doesn't matter when it's 500m... it still will be $5m each time. Do yourself a favor and stop dreaming this dream and play something else where the odds work more in your favor.

                            Cupcake, I'm getting a psychic impression that you don't like Mega Millions.

                            I'd almost be willing to bet on it.
