Wink Both MM & PB are headed for uncharted territories .  Hold on for some exciting rides.  The world will soon take notice and join in the games.Hyper

Both lotteries have been above 500mil$ so I don't see how that's uncharted?

I would love a world lottery with all EU + USA + Canada + Japan/Korea/Taiwan with billion $ jackpots.

    Uncharted or not- it ends tonight. I picked up a penny in a  parking lot. I take that as an Omen.

          MaximumMillions,  I agree and will support a world lottery such as you suggested. Billion $$$ jackpots!!

           Mega Millions top jackpot was $656 million won on March 30,2012.

           Power Ball 's  top jackpot was won by Gloria C. Mackenzie  $590.5 million. in May 2013?

           I believe that the Mega Millions was split three ways in... Red Bud, Illinois: Kansas: Maryland .

            Gloria's jackpot makes me drool.

            That would have netted me 370mil$ after taxes because of the double taxation agreements USA-GER.(Give or take FL sales tax)

              That would be sweet, but the odds would have to be about a billion to one, otherwise it would hit every week, and every country would have to decide on one currency, either the pound or Euro is what I'd want since both are worth more than the dollar

                Look up Italy's SuperEnalotto, 6 of 90, odds are a relatively abysmal 1:622 000 000.

                And yet it is being played and until Gloria I think once had the highest jakpot in a lottery ever.

                So using that matrix, maybe 6 of 90, 6 of 100, 7 of 100 or whatever.

                6 of 100 would be 1: 1,192,052,400

                7 of 100 would be 1:16,007,560,800 (!!!)

                 

                I think 6-7 of 100 would be a very simple way to play, everybody would understand it, orbital odds would make sure the jackpot grows and grows and grows.

                Jackpots would either build slowly over years, or very fast if there is a starting jackpot of 500mil $ that every Country pays a starting share into and every ticket is 2-4$.

                 

                It could be calculated in € and the winner gets the equivalent of his or her local currency. If USA makes the winnings of this jackpot tax exempt it would skyrocket.

                  Great post MaximumMillions.  A worldwide jackpot of a billion to 1 would be great.  6 balls out of a 100 for a 1:1,192,052,400 sounds about perfect.  Id keep the price at $1 a play though and the equivalent in other currencies. 

                  You could make the draw come from Las Vegas Caesars Palace Monday thru Saturday which would insure $6 a week from most players.  However you have to show up at Caesars Palace in order to collect and do a press conference!Banana Absolutely no hiding or disguising! Banana 

                  I never understood the idea of having 2 ball hoppers in america and using up to 3 hoppers like they do in europe.  1 hopper! Big Grin

                    It's highly doubtful that a lottery draw would come from Caesar's or any other Nevada casino.

                    Granted they had that monopoly flop, but a pure lottery draw? Not in the "United States of Nevada" (they make their own laws).

                    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.

                            My fortune cookie that said wealth would be knocking at my door has 13 in the megaball/Powerball spot so that's what I'm playing. I've gotten zilch all year with QP numbers so I'm going to give these fortune cookie numbers a try. Can't do any worse than I'm doing now anyway. Unless numbers come to me in a dream like Wrestlicious guy, I'm gonna be like George Costanza's mother and trust the Chinese LOL.

                            May 13 prove lucky to us both.Dance
