 Since I asked you to vote whether Texas would join Powerball it seems that other States including Texas are flocking to the Powerball game. Seems like the trend has been set.

    MM:

    Texas probably will join MM, not PB.

    VT adds _virtually_nothing_ to PB, Ironically, the man who kept VT from joining PB for so long now is running for President.

      The trend has not just been set - it has been continued.  States with small populations join Powerball, states with big populations join Mega Millions.

        Todd:

        Maine might be next into PB-ironically, Maine was a MUSL member in the early 1990s, but dropped out when PB began in 1992.

          The selling point when NY joined MM was the fact that with the cahnge from the Big Game format to the MM format was the jackpots would be huge and the payouts would be better than Powerball. Thus far the PB jackpots have grown higher faster and under their new format the lesser prizes are bigger if you spend the extra buck. I'm betting that even the States with larger populations go to PB.

            megamillionaire,

            Mega Millions has had more big jackpots than Powerball, and that's a fact.  You can find the actual count in this thread.  In fact, you can see Mega Millions grew $1 million faster than the last run with last night's rollover.

            You may be right, Texas may jon Powerball, but I'll put money on Texas joining Mega Millions.  How much you up for?

              Pennsylvania is the only "big" state so far in MUSL. Florida WAS to get in, but Jeb Bush vetoed the previous governor's approval.

              Why has VT waited so long? One of the nine who want to beat Jeb's BROTHER next year.
