Yes, they need more winners at say 20 to may-be 40 million dollars.  Reading some of the post here for years at lp, I think some people really don't have a clue how much 20 to 40 million is as far as life changing.  If a person was making $100,000/year with taxes taken out vs. a person making $100,000 with no taxes taken out, that might be life changing for some.  Pb needs to change the game to have more millionaires, a not the promise of a very high jackpot that will go to one person.

    The prize award levels/graduations (even taking into account the mathematical probability calculations made by those that are making them, and who are presumed,by you and me, to be more adept at making these calculations of "odds") are still widely askew. The Mega Millions, Power Ball, and even the new Va. game (Bank a million), are all cases in point. But just as in every other institution (schools, military, every faction of government(s)..) the truly inept, unwise, unmotivated, un-ambitious people are making the rules by which the majority of us must play.

      Why do I play? 

      I think it's because I'm a glutton for punishment, or I like losing or something like that.

      About playing the lottery --  You will lose more than you win. Until you hit a jackpot.  Then everything changes!
