There are a lot of people who agree with you. I have a unique way to gauge this: as Webmaster of BigGameLottery.com, I have access to the number of people who subscribe to Jackpot Alerts at various levels.
Assuming that people subscribe at the level which they like to start to buy tickets, this can be a good measure. The top-4 subscription levels, in order of number of subscribers is:
- Any size jackpot
- $50 million
- $100 million
- $20 million
I'm not going to disclose the number of subscribers or percentage of subscribers at each level, but I think it is interesting nonetheless.

(Is more than I got!)
Sure we all can all dream about the 'BIG ONE'.
But I, CAN and DO, take my straights and boxes, along the way.

Last year I matched 5 of 6 in Ohio lottery for $1500. 5 of 6 pays the same regardless of the size of the jackpot. MegaMillions pays the same unless you hit all six numbers and I'm more likely to hit one of the lower prizes any way, so although I might might play a little more when the jackpot is larger, I generally plays regardless of the jackpot size. Playing lottery is my vice of choice since I don't drink or smoke.

Any size with Mega Millions. $40M or bigger for PB.

Powerball I prefer $80M or more. To play Megamillions is a 25min walk or 4min drive, but to play PowerBall is a 2hr dive one way.
