The slogan for Powerball says it all... It's America's Game!

    that's the fundamental problem with that game. residents from englend should just cross the channel and go to france so they have a chance at winning a bigger prize with the same odds.






    Unless you're 16 or 17. In France it's 18, but in the UK it's 16 (maybe the lowest in the world). Interesting fact, the drinking age is the exact opposite. In the UK it's 18, and in France it's 16.

      I think the UK has a slightly different percentage into the jackpot because of the currency difference.



      It's great that Euro Millions has 11 lower-tier prizes - what an awesome game.

        I don't think NY by itself could come up with a game with 12 prize levels.

            i never heard anything about that. i doubt it though.

            I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

                i think that the currency exchange and the language barriers may be a problem.

                    Mexico has a large population however.

                      I also heard of Australia joining, although they have their own version, in which you need three numbers (3+0 or 2+1) to win.

                          Maybe we should all get together and form our own game with $500 and $600m jackpots...maybe even $1 billion.

                            If  Powerball expanded to have $1 billion dollar jackpot with $550m cash option, you guys absolutely must take the annuity.

                              No, I'm opting for the lump sum.
