Just a simple question I thought I'd post. I personally like powerball.

    I used to play Powerball for years but quit when they raised the price to $2.  Been playing Mega Millions since then.  So Mega Millions.

        PB!!!!

        Even though MM might be more money for picking the first 5, I just feel like I am wasting my $ on MM (I only play when the game is $400 million plus.)

          Only playing when it reaches 400 M. I think you're missing out on opportunities for those other draws. I rather win before it reaches $400 M.

              Powerball because the odds seem better, and because I won ten bucks one time playing it lol

                So would I but I don't like the new MM game as I said and will only jump in when the JP becomes big news.

                  I personally like MM and the second tier prizes they offer. Im shooting for that 5 million

                    I hate the new Mega Millions. Lower payouts and less winners. It's easier to win the Powerball now and that's not saying much

                      It don't make me no nevermind, my ownself.

                      I play a line on both of 'em every draw.

                      And when the fickle finger of fate picks me out of the secondary, I'll catch that pass.

                        MM or PB?

                        Neither

                        Since the rules changed for both games, the odds/payouts are no longer worth playing more than 2 or 3 lines...

                          Which game are you hoping will make you a match 5 millionaire?

                           PB for me too. If you're looking for the best odds of winning $1M then PB is the game for you. Some states have the Lotto 6/49 games and I think those are the best odds for winning $1M. Our local 6/49 games jp starts at $500,000 so I usually wait until it hits the $1.6M to play because that is when the annuity has a cash lumpsum of $1M. Good luck players. Smash those jackpots!

                          That money's gone fo ever

                              For right now I'll say MM as a 5 + 0 with the Megaplier could win $2M to $5M............currently PB is $1M w/o Powerplay and $2M with it.

                              In January when PB adds a multiplier we're not sure how it will work but I'm thinking it might be a copyct of MM.

                              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.
