Mm drawing is tonight & I say there's no way in hell it's gonna roll, in fact I'm predicting multiple winners tonight.  At least one from the San Francisco Bay Area, and one from New York.

Who is spending money to win a $15 Million jackpot?

    Another low jackpot winner.

    When are they going to realize it's too easy to win & change the matrix again to make it hard?

    There will never be another $100 mil+ mm jackpot again ever I predict.

    The lottery picks the jackpot winners whenever they want. The lottery want players to buy tickets at low jackpot levels. It is the reason why you are seeing $20M and $30M jackpot winners. Spend your $1 when the jackpot goes to $40M or more.

      I disagree, the lottery is not easy to win. there will never be another 100 million dollar + jackpot for 1 ticket to win????  I like when they have large wins and small wins, a win is a win.

      The lottery do not like lottery players to start buying tickets at the $100M annuity level? Who is going to support the low jackpots?

        Maybe this will show people that mega can still be won even with the change. If they still pay attention I guess

        Spending $1 on Mega Millions with a $15M starting jackpot is insane. Your odds of winning are 1 in 259M.

          No matter how high the lotteries jack up the odds, the jackpot can still be won even at low sales levels.  Nobody buys a ticket and thinks, "I hope the jackpot rolls." LOL  Remember back in December 2012, which was almost a year after PB changed to its current incarnation, four $50 million jackpots were won back-to-back, and it actually cost the MUSL $59 million from its reserve funds.  It took the game months to recover, as they had to keep drawing its jackpots down to replace those funds.

          It was a Powerball lottery trap in order to have players playing at low jackpot levels. You need lottery players to lose money to have $100M plus jackpots.

            I'd rather there be multiple smaller jackpot winners than 1-2 larger jackpot winners! Spread the wealth around more evenly! Thumbs Up

            Have you won a lottery jackpot or a $1M prize? The lottery is already redistributing your money through jackpot wins.

              I really don't care if there is a jackpot winner every draw. I just know that if I hit it it's goodbye job and daily grind....hello retirement.

              In fact, it's probably better to hit it when it's low because most people aren't paying attention like they would when it's hundreds of millions.

              Mega Millions jackpot is $15M. Are you buying one $5 Mega Millions lottery ticket?

                Each time I see a low winner I think of this post and laugh:

                Mega Millions will continue to roll until 1 lucky person buys the right quick pick. The new matrix was designed for no one to win until the jackpot gets so high and everyone buys in. Which could result in all possible combinations being sold. Can you imagine the resentment and backlash against MUSL and the winner.

                And:

                MUSL will need to sell almost all combinations to produce 1 winner.

                So much for that theory. It's actually nice to see lower wins. I'm sure people who only play large jackpots don't feel this way, but I enjoy seeing more wins over bigger wins. I would enjoy it a little more if the jackpot started at $20m instead, they should really set aside so much from the high amount jackpots and put them towards future rollovers.

                Do not let the lottery fool you. The lottery decides when the jackpot is going to be won whether you buy 1 lottery ticket or 100 lottery tickets.

                    There will be another $100 million jackpot again and $500m ones too; however forget about the Billion dallas one.  It will never happen.  And yeah, I also don't like these small wins.

                    It makes sense to spend $1 or $2 on a $100 Million jackpot.

                      Right. And it has done that a few times now on this supposedly ridiculously hard 1-in-259M new MM odds. It all evens out in the end.

                      Actually, since the new MM started, based on total accumulated sales of around $1.9 Billion, we should have expected around 7 jackpot winners by now. Oh, and guess what...after Friday's win, we now have 7 jackpot winners!

                      We're all caught up now, so some might think the way is now clear for another big run. Wink

                      Turning $1 into $100 Millions.

                              Never been sold in California? Lots of Californians played the PB game last night and since no one won in the entire United States- that translates into millions in California ending up with losing tickets.

                              You not from one of the Baltic States are you?
