Do you think, with all of the rollovers, the Mega Millions could have a $1.5 Billion jackpot?

It happened to Powerball, it could happen to Mega Millions.

 

 

Mega Millions is a more appealing name since my state lottery didn't have Powerball back then.

    I think that mega would have to raise the cost of tickets to $2 before we see a billion dollar jackpot.-weshar75

      What with the way interest rates have gone recently I doubt it.

      The way they advertise the Jackpot is finally biting them in the butt.

          What are you talking about? Every state that currently offers MM and PB, offered PB back in January.  Your state offered Powerball back then or it didn't and doesn't have a lottery for you to buy your MM tickets.

            My state already had Powerball when the January jackpot happened.

             

             

            What I meant to say was, my state lottery didn't have Powerball in the 2000's.

              It can happen to Mega Millions as well, but it has to roll many times as well. California Super Lotto Plus rolled a record 51 times until someone hit a jackpot worth $63 million dollars. Mega Millions has to roll at least 3 more times to set a new Mega Millions record of at least $700 million. Mega Millions will have to roll about 5 more times to beat Powerball's jackpot of $1.5864 billion.

              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!

                I believe Mega Millions has already set a record.  I don't believe it has ever rolled this many times before without a winner.

                Who'da thunk it would roll for 4 months with no winner and it's a multi-state game!

                  Mega Millions has rolled a new record 33 times. It still needs more work to do in order to break the Powerball Jackpot record of $1.5864 Billion dollars set on January 13th of this year.

                  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!
