I say currently becuase the amount seems to be creeping upwards. Close to $100M used to do it but now it seems it's got to be closer to $300M before the fever sets in........I mean the fantasy "If I win" threads, the media, the whole nine yards.

What amount does it take now, and what about in the future?

If there ever is a $1B jackpot will that be the amount neede to trigger it from then on?

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

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 agree.  $300+ seems to be the number.

        This thread seems to be about the national lotteries of PowerBall and MegaMillions but I've seen the same thing happen with local lotteries as lower level when their jackpots exceeded the value of buying all their possible combinations.

        For our Rolling Cash5, it's at $500K and for our Classic Lotto, it's about $50M+.

          I agree that $300 million seems to be the current price point!

                RJOh,

                Has there ever been a national medialottery blitz for a non-multisate game?

                  Good question

                  Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

                    I think $300-350 million makes people aware but $500+ million will bring out the masses who rarely ever play.

                      If it's at that big name taco place they should make it a Tacos and Toilet Paper for Life game.
