Are there any states that have both Mega Millions & Powerball or are states just allowed to have one or the other?

    There are no states with both.  I think the last state to have both was Georgia, when it first created The Big Game.  After it created that game, MUSL kicked Georgia out.

    Texas toyed with the idea of bringing both games to the state this year, but the multi-state lotteries were not receptive.

      Thanks Todd

      I remember when GA had the Big Game. A guy i worked with would collect a pool of $$ & drive to GA once a month & buy folks cash option quick picks.

        Actually, when TX was toying with doing both, MUSL was so desperate to get TX to join, they told TX that they had no problem with TX doing both, if it so chose to. The MM collective told TX that they had to choose one or the other.

        Looks like playing hard to get still works....
