I had figured that with the new Mega Millions odds around 259,000,000/1 that jackpots over $500,000,000 would become common and it wouldn't be long before we would see a Jackpot up around or over $1,000,000,000. But it seems that the jackpot is being won more now then before?

So I'm wondering are the winners winning with their own numbers or are they winning with Quick picks?

    I think that we have mmmmmmm, I guess more winners is a good thing, looking at how many winners that you have per year. I also think that it's not easy to know if the winner used qp's or thier own numbers, unless it's printed in a news story. I would like to know the answer myself.

      Historically, QP's have won the most MM Jackpots.

      That is because most tickets sold are QP's.

      I would venture to speculate that an even higher percentage of QP's are being sold now with MM's new ultra-ridiculous odds.

        I propose 5 out of 100 with 1 out of 50, same payout. US Flag

          Most are playing with QP's. With a matrix that goes above 30 numbers, birthday's, anniversaries don't factor in much with a player as it would with a player playing their local lotto game playing a smaller field.
