I'm gonna go out on a limb here and say sales will drop off dramatically now that the jp was hit due to millions of smashed dreams and it will be 3 months before it's hit again at over 1 billion.

 

I know I wont be playing it anymore until it reaches that size again, what say you?

      I'll still get one ticket. Ive been getting the yellow ball number for the past three drawings. Still hoping I'll hit that elusive 2nd tier prize, I woulda been super happy with that 4 million  last night

          I definitely will not play again until it' super high.  With MM odds that is the only time I will play.

          To God be the glory... 

          When you're winning you're being blessed by Him!

            I agree, now it's time to put 100% on powerball.

              I will go out on that limb with you and say that sales will drop off dramatically for the next draw compared to last night's draw. Probably to around the nominal $15M starting sales.

                MM ticket sales always drop after a nine digit jackpot win and record drop in sales is $627 million from 3/30/12 to 4/03/12. Sales prove people will buy many more tickets when the jackpot reaches a certain size, but the amount of the jackpot that starts a ticket buying frenzy is gradually getting higher.

                  The 656 jackpot already ruined mega. Seems like players don't care about it until it reaches 400mill. It took a Billion dollar possibility to hype it up this time. Now that people know about the changes, it might be along time before Todd gets another interview.

                    I will go back to my one ticket each drawing until the jackpot gets back up to the super high number.  I always play one line in both the MM and PB just to keep skin in the game.

                      Yep! The last time I dropped my money into MM was when it had that big jackpot in 2012. And this time around for the $636 jackpot, I only used a dollar. I sure won't be touching MM until it reaches over $500 mil. Until next time MM!

                        It will take at least 20 drawings to reach this height again from the starting $15 million. Powerball does this in 13 drawings

                          Until MM jackpot reaches at least $300M, players have lots of better or just as good of choices to play.  For example, Ohio has Classic Lotto(6/49) with a $55M jackpot with better odds of 1:14M to win it.

                           * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                            That's if no one wins before.

                              I'll definitely take a break from MM.  There are too many games competing for ones money.  SuperLotto in CA has been rolling over for a while, so it's decent sized right now.  I'll play SLP until someone wins that jackpot, as well as scratchers. 

                              I agree with posters above that the jackpot threshold that gets me excited seems to be rising.
