Todd:

Personally, I would consider only the amount that the jackpot was WON at (when consecutive draws are counted in the same game, it would indicate a "slower" growing game.)

IOW, if Super-6 (PA) got to $95 million, how big/small would the rolls be?

    Personally, I consider the actual number of times that a jackpot is greater than $95 million to be the number of times it was greater than $95 million.  Your initial point was hinting that Powerball somehow had an edge when looked at from your perspective.  My point is that no matter which point of view you take, Mega Millions has had more jackpots greater than $95 million, and if that is your definition of an exciting game, then Mega Millions is more exciting.

      Not sure if anyone mentioned this, but it seems that at lower levels PB grows faster, but above a certain amount, MM has bigger rolls.

        Good point, that's why I want TX to join MM.  Just think:


        • Start jackpot at $15 Million

        • Bigger rollovers

        • Take the oppy to change the number pools to generate more (and better) lower-tier prizes
