This is a temporary situation, if no one hits MM Tuesday it will increase less than PB will if no one hits it Wednesday.

PB has no choice, it has to be increased by at least $10M after each drawing until it's won regardless of ticket sales.

    That's what I was thinking because I'd be happy with a million.

    I need to check the odds again.  Are odds for 2nd place better with 2 Megas than one Powerball?

    The odds with 2 MegaMillion tickets of winning a million dollars is 1 : 9,246,000

    The odds with one Powerball ticket of winning a million dollars is still slightly better at 1 : 5,154,000

      Sorry you were wrong.  Nobody hit MM last night and it rolled to $51M and if nobody hit PB tonight it will only roll to $50M.

        The last time PB jackpot was at $40M, they sold $29,011,614 worth of tickets, I think they will sell a lot less for next Wednesday drawing.

        As I predicted PB sold just over $24M worth of tickets last night, if this trend continues MM and PB jackpots could be close for another roll or two which would make MM tickets more attractive IMHO.

          MM only rolled to $59M last night, if nobody win PB tonight it will roll to $60M.  It will be interesting to see if MM can tie PB in Tuesday drawing by rolling to $70M.

            I got tickets for both games. I play one line regardless of the jackpot size. Good luck if you're playing

            That money's gone fo ever

              I enjoy picking combinations for the games I play and usually don't have time to pick for both so I usually end up just playing one.  I'll be picking some combinations for Tuesday's MM drawing.  Good luck to you too.

                We won't have to wonder since PB was hit tonight.  If this keeps up PB won't catch up with MM until after someone wins it.
