Unless I've over looked something, I noticed that jackpots at 15 or 20 million in Mega Million seldom win. It mostly hits when jackpots are huge. I play at all ranges. Does most people play only when jackpots are big?

    You answered your own question. In 2016, anything under $100 Million is super low and no one is going to waste money buying tickets for a chance at such absurdly low levels.

      I'm in it to win it no matter the size of the jackpot.

      Whether it's just the starting amount (15 or 40 mil) or hasn't been hit in a while and reaching record amounts.

      It doesn't matter since a jackpot win at any level would be "life changing" money. Even second prize of $1 mil would be gladly accepted.

      $1 or $2 for a ticket is a cheap price to pay for the possible payoff and the dreams it could fulfill.

        Even if you hit 5 numbers which is impossible to do that would be cool.  Because depending on taxes and where you're at you will get a decent payout.   I like mm better rather than PB.  PB when they changed it I wasn't in favor of it. 

         

        I'm just trying to figure out on usamega what numbers and combos to possibly play.

          No matter what the jackpot is, 5 white balls will win $1 million which-- depending on taxes withheld --could net you over $600,000.  A lot of people would be happy winning a million.

            A lot of people would be happy also if now I am off topic some if Congress had their pays frozen and everyone who really needs the major funds had it.

                Glad to see some are willing to accept a small jackpot too. Good luck to whoever wins at mega, small or big.

                  Mr./Ms. Kaseydia,


                  I say, YES, most people definitely play only when the jackpots are huge.

                  But smart people like yourself play at all ranges.

                  I have mentioned before, how I play every single week; every single draw.
                  (I haven't missed a single MM or PB drawing since some time in 2014. I may stop playing for good. And that worries me.)

                  With my luck, I know what'll happen the week I don't play.

                  Eventually, I hope Everyone, Everywhere will play Every week.

                  If I win the $1 million I've been hoping to win for years,
                  I'll be satisfied with the half million or so I'll pocket after taxes.

                  To All:  Good Luck on tonight's drawing.

                  Mr. Groppo

                  • Don't chase the numbers you play.
                  • 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.
                            (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)
