Are you switching or your you sticking to the paltry 40 million?

    My PB ticket is good until Mar 19.  I'd love to hit 5 white balls for a "paltry" $1 million.

        whats this switching? play both.  MM is cheaper and easier to win. cant see it getting that high. but i can see people actually   swapping games they chase

        2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

        keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

          I agree with you goose, play booth. For the same price of a PB ticket, with MM you get the megaplier which pays up to $5 million for second prize. Now in response to the original post, with the MM current matrix and one dollar bet, I'm not sure if well ever see a billion dollar JP.

            Why cant you see it getting that high?  It could get to 700 million easy.

              1st, odds of 1 in 175m vs 1 in 292m 

              meaning the chance of " someone " winning in ea draw is greater for  mega than powerball. that should mean over a year there should be more mega winners

              2nd the cost, $1 vs $2 to buy that chance is twice as expensive, so  for ever 1 in 292. people can buy 2 chances in 175 million

              3 im not so sure about this one, but ill say it anyhow, the  pots build quicker becasue of the extra cash on powerball


              of course, with random, there is nothing to say mega doesnt get won for the rest of the year.  but its just an easier game to win.

               

               

              I would like to see the sort of  frenzy then went into the powerball,. once mega gets to $350M maybe we can see a challenge to highest pot, but it better build quickly.

              2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

                Cheers YES! Exactly my thinking!

                I will keep playing both!

                -  -  -  -  -

                As for the billion dollar mark being reached again, for either PB or MM, isn't anything I am waiting for. 

                Any million(s) is more millions than I have now! My plans wouldn't change too much if I were to win $50M or $250M.

                I'd rather see jackpots won more frequently and spread all that wealth around.

                For me " The more, the merrier" means the more winners, the merrier!

                Could MM have the next billion dollar jackpot? I guess so, but I feel like it would take twice as long to reach the amount.

                Can it be done? Sure, anything is possible.

                  MM has odds of 1:258 000 000.

                  But I do agree that the lower ticket cost makes a 700M$ jackpot unlikely.

                    Every week, I play 1 MM, 1 PB and 1 NY Lotto

                    I am not discriminatory on where my jackpot money will come from.

                        I've switched to MM for now, it's cheaper to play & the minimum/lower jackpots for Powerball suck anyway.  $40-$50 million would do nothing for me lol

                           I play both MM & PB. One ticket each and every draw. 

                           I expect to win and keep after the deduction and taxes about $65 million for MM and $32.6 million for PB. I am in California. I would then be a Happy Camper!

                            Nope I'd still play both MM and PB, if I was outside California I would add megaplier and powerplay. I love Cali but it's pari-mutual law is a joke.

                              We had a $656 MM JP.  If it is random do the odds really matter?  I read a lot of post on LP that say that 12345 +6 could come out five draws in a row because

                              each draw is independent of the last.  If everybody is afraid to play birthday numbers because of the birthday number myth we can get to a least $750 million.
