I think it was Powerball that grows faster....24 states versus 10 in Mega Millions...populations sould be pretty close.  Well lets compare these games again.  Powerball is drawn tonight...Mega Millions on Tuesday.

      Good observation Brad.  It's uncanny simetimes how these games seem to be linked.  First, Mega Millions gets up to $180 million before getting hit.  Then, when it gets hit, Powerball comes along with a $100 million+ jackpot of its own.  Then, both games drop to $10 million less than a week apart.

      Last time, Powerball did grow faster.  It will be interesting to watch again.

        Todd,

        It'd be even more interesting if/when Texas joins both.

        I sincerely hope they adopt your idea and bump the minimum jackpots to $15 Mil or $20 Mil when Texas is added.

            HP,

            Continue playing Super 6.  I'd also recommend Mass 6/42 and 6/49 games.  Avoid HOT LOTTO at all times.  That game should be axed unless they make annuity payments a mandatory process.

                I might just go after that super 6... matched 3 white #s on PB last night for $7 :-)  (my ticket... 02-06-15-16-50---20  the QP wasn't even close... 11-24-29-33-41---09)

                Just got done the spreadsheet for super 6 (506 draws so far since 1998). Generated 7 picks... they give 2 free QPs with it... 21 chances for $7... not even my $7 lol... it's worth a shot.

                I'll pre-select CASH, since you have to make the choice while playing.

                PB results were 06-16-50-51-52 --- 23

                  Well Powerball jumped $4 million, I bet after tuesdays draw Mega Millions will only be at $12,000,000.  Anyone agree?  I would be very suprised if it was any higher.

                        Powerball was hit 2 draws ago. Then 2 draws before that it was hit by 2 tickets in the big $250 Million drawing.

                        So it went...$250+ Mil -> $10 Mil -> $14 Mil -> $10 Mil -> $12 Mil -> $18 Mil.
