If you match the 5 numbers on Mega Millions you could win up to $5 million. But if you match the 5 numbers on Powerball you get $2 million. Do you play Powerplay or Megaplier with your tickets? If so, Why?

      Megaplier - yes.

      Powerplay, usually not, but then I rarely play PB at all.

            I like to megaply and powerplay my tickets since I usually only buy one or two lines of ticket.  I think I will megaply my friday mega millions ticket and my saturday powerball ticket too.  The extra winnings brightens my day.-weshar75

              for the last mega millions drawing i self picked 10 tickets, each with a different mega ball. I won $0.00. Why should i double it to a $20 loss? It would be a great strategy though if a group buys all the mega ball combos and mega piles it each week.

                Yes. Megaplier. Wouldnt want to deal with the fact that but for $1 more I could have had millions more. PP: I dont usually play PB.

                  This is exactly my thought.  You only double down on a guaranteed winning bet.  I'd rather spend the extra dollar on another ticket which gives me a chance to win the JP or some other prize.  I don't like the idea of doubling down when the odds say that you are just wasting $2 instead of $1. 

                  On a side note, the MUSL would not offer the powerplay and megaplier options if they weren't profitable to the MUSL.

                    I choose the megaplier and powerplay option because the payout is bigger.

                      My vote is the Megaplier if I was in another state outside of California.

                      I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

                        Sometimes I buy my Mega Millions ticket with Megaplier since it increases the chance of winning up to 5 times on all prizes (except jackpot) and makes the cost of each ticket only $2.

                        I don't get the Powerplay because $2 is expensive enough for the lousy odds and payouts Powerball has.

                            I've started to wonder if, instead of megaplier, it might mske sense to get a second ticket with the same white ball numbers and a different MB number. 

                            What do y'all think?

                              No, I don't.
                              I spend way to much on these two games, as it is.

                              I just want to win $1 million. That's all I'd need.
                              With it, I could move out west, get a modest house, a motorcycle, a large screen tv, and I'm set.

                              Should I win a significantly larger prize, like tonight's MM (6/17/2016),   I'd give a couple million to

                              • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
                              • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
