Are PB players switching now to MM to create the next Billion dollar JP?

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

Are there any trends that you like lately jjtheprince?  I agree.  40-50 million probably would do nothing for me either.  I wouldn't even be able to buy a REALLY

nice yacht.  I could buy about 100,000 skiffs though and three trips to the moon.

    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.

    Maybe you are right.  Thats why you have to plunk $50 dollars down instead of $25!!  We have to play more at lower odds!  Otherwise they will panic and

    change the matrix again.

      MM has odds of 1:258 000 000.

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

      $700 million is unlikely for PB, too, despite the $2 ticket price and steeper odds.

      Still, until 7 weeks ago MM had the record for the biggest jackpot, and it reached that record with $1 tickets and 1 in 175 million odds. Applying that probability to the current odds an equivalent jackpot would be just a hair under $700 million for the cash value, or almost $1.1 billion for the annuity value.
