When comparing that nauseatingly Confused slow climb of MM against the pleasing pace Cool of PB; If both should continue to rollover:  Which of the two will be the first to cross that titanium threshold of $1B ?

      Neither !!!  I think both PB & MM will be won before they reach $1 Billion.

        With the Mega Millions jackpot at half a billion dollars it is finally attracting attention and growing.  The most recent jackpot increase was 19% over last draw.  Powerball's most recent increase over last draw was 12%.  Based on the current MM jackpot amount, if it were to continue to roll, it should easily reach one billion before the PB jackpot would.  However, if given jackpots of equivelant levels it appears PB edges MM in jackpot increases.

          If neither gets won, then Mega will rise to 1 Billion first. That said, I'm winning Mega tonight and everyone will cash in their mega tickets tomorrow and buying Powerball with it so that'll be won tomorrow. By the end of the year or early next year, we'll see Powerball reach a billion.

                My vote is Powerball because Mega Millions hit their $540 million jackpot in the last draw.

                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 was RIGHT !!!  MM did NOT reach $1 Billion, b/c the $540M  Jackpot has been HIT by someone in Indiana !!!

                    Based on shear odds I voted for PB but who knows when if ever. Shocked

                      PB is currently at $390 million for the upcoming draw tonight. I hope they continue to roll.

                      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!
