Even though it would make me a lot more comfortable financially to win a huge sum like $200 million, I'd be fine with winning at the starting level.

May the balls bounce in your favor!

    I would be happy to win any lottery jackpot, however when the jackpot of MM or PB reset there is usually another game that's a better value when its jackpot and odds of winning are considered so I probably wouldn't be playing.

      15 to 40 mil would do me just fine.  I don't even really know what I'd even do with 200 (66 cash).  I suppose a number of  homeless shelters, food banks and animal rescue organizations would get very nice donations.

          the starting MM jackpot would not be enough to retire - but it would be more than enough to make life exceptionally comfortable.

           

          so - yes I would be more than content with a starting jackpot from either MM or PB

            I would be thrilled to win a starting jackpot at 15 million with getting 9 million as the cash option. That amount of money would be life changing for me. I would love nothing more than to be retired permanently from work. I've been working since my first babysitting job at 13 and have always had low paying jobs so winning the minimum jackpot on PB or MM would bring me financial security and allow me to help family and friends and be charitable to people in need.

                My vote is yes because Power ball rolls and gains about $10 million while Mega Millions gains at least $5 million.

                    Oh, you better believe I would.
                    And what does each start at?

                    MegaMillions starts at 15 million?  Powerball at around the same? 

                    I sure would be happy with that starting amount.  Who wouldn't be except for people like Bill Gates, Warren Buffet or Donald Trump?

                      I wonder if any big time celebrities play the lottery when it gets really high.

                      May the balls bounce in your favor!
