It seems to that all of hype about the big two PB & MM is fading the jackpots were advertised to get real huge but they seem to be getting hit now even before they reach $ 300 million. Is it me or what?

    Weeeell I'm not sure I'd say they're boring.  But I do get disappointed when the jackpot is won before it gets over half a billion dollars.  Evil Uhh  Especially with MegaMillions.  After the matrix change, I expected that one to get huge almost every time.

      I don't think it's boring at all. I'm just impatient and disappointed that "my numbers" haven't hit yet! Thud

       

      I'm OK with the jackpots getting hit before reaching $300 million. I'd rather have multiple smaller jackpot winners (from various states) than one GLORIA winner any day!  Yes Nod

        The reasons that I don't like Powerball or Mega Millions

        1. The second , third and fourth prizes are very little compared to the first prize.

        2. The odds of me picking five numbers and mega correctly.

        3. I can't imagine winning over one million dollars. 

         

        I rather waste my money on  scratcher tickets.

          Mega Millions and Powerball are two big rip-offs. Lottery players lose more money than they win playing these games.

          Playing for small prizes in MM and PB is like playing for a jackpot. The odds of winning the small prizes are too high.
