I was kinda curious, how many people have actually won the starting jackpots; be it Powerball, Mega Millions, or any state lottery(that exeeds 1mil)?

Do you play or wait till the prize gets larger?

    I don't have any exact numbers for you but I have read of people winning the starting jackpot.

    Here are 3 examples of people winning mega millions at the starting jackpot when the starting jackpot was 12 million.

    I have played the jackpot at the starting amount. My reasoning is, if I win the jackpot at the starting amount, I could live a very comfortable life.

      That information is on the websites of most lotteries if you're really interested in knowing but you might have to do a little researching.
