Even with higher odds the jackpots are being won frequently

 

Is the billion dollar JP a pipe dream?

    I think they might have to start a new game. The Billion is not looking too good.

        Thinking higher jackpots is just that : a thought. It's similar to electing political leaders- they say one thing & do another. Long story short: Someone has to Win. I seriously doubt any of these winners are going to complain about the jackpot not being a billion when they win it.They grateful that they beat the odds.

            Congrats to the winner, regardless of the location.

            Just my $.02 but I think a billion dollar jackpot is a unicorn (doesn't exist - and also might never show up).

            Along with that, if there ever is a billion dollar jackpot and it's a solo hit, considering all the lotto horror stories I don't think anyone would really want to be the one to win it.

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            Lep

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                  Yes I agree,  but for me, a million dollars after taxes would be great.

                      It seems that NY gets the most Mega Millionaires than Florida. What gives? Perhaps the winner used Quickpick like all of the recent winners have done. Maybe its best to stick to the state Lotteries instead of the national ones. 

                       

                      Only one couple from FL has ever won the jackpot.

                            At least it wasn't California. Michigan is ready for its turn again.
