New Mega Millions Game
This is ridiculous. Wasn't it not too long ago when the states said they were happy with where Mega Millions was positioned, and that Powerball changed to make it DIFFERENT from Mega Millions, seeing ...

Powerball increases above the minimum on the first roll
I have no idea why they did that. They only sold 13.5 million tickets ($27 million in sales) for last night's draw.

2 winners for MM minimum
I believe that's the first time the Mega Millions jackpot was won in back-to-back draws under the current incarnation of the game. Also, only the third time a minimum jackpot was won in the current in...

POWERBALL CREATES WORLD'S FIRST BILLION-DOLLAR JACKPOT
Even if it was humanly realistic to purchase every combination, which it isn't, it is a very foolish endeavor. If just ONE OTHER TICKET wins, then you lose BIG on the investment.

winning powerball ticket sold in michigan
Yep, and it will take TWO MONTHS for jackpots to increase by more than $10 million, if they ever do, and six month jackpot win droughts will become more common due to nobody buying tickets

Will the Powerball be won before the new matrix?
Looks like those who voted Yes were right. Too bad I was wrong about ME winning it.

Current Powerball Run
We all know that after October 3, 2015, the PB jackpot becomes even harder to win, with 69 white balls to pick five from, up from 59, and 26 red balls to pick one from, down from 35. The jackpot for t...

And we're rolling...MM at 85m
I hope it doesn't, because I'm going to buy a ticket for Tuesday's draw. I'm playing every draw on this current run until it is won, as per my system of playing every draw if the jackpot is not at a r...

Puerto Rico runs away with the Powerball Jackpot
Powerball will soon go away due to its lack of profitability, and Mega Millions (in its current format) will be the only game left. Powerball took too big a gamble with its existing setup.

Florida snags the 80m dollar Powerball Jackpot
I think we may very well see an end to PB soon. It takes the game way too many draws for its jackpot to be fully funded (on average, it needs seven draws without a winner), so there's too big a risk o...

Say goodbye to PB & MM soon!
This is the first time though, that Mega Millions is still at a minimum jackpot after three draws without a winner (the $15 million plus the three minimum increases of only $5 million). Sales for both...

Say goodbye to PB & MM soon!
Mega Millions has yet to have a winner at the $15 million level. I have seen it won once at $20 million though (after one roll), since the last matrix change.

New Jersey snatches the Powerball Jackpot at 40million! Lol
True $26.8 million cash (before taxes) is $26.8 million. HOWEVER, if PB goes out of business, then nobody can win, and unless you were one of the prior winners...

New Jersey snatches the Powerball Jackpot at 40million! Lol
True about the social engineering bit - PB has to let a couple of players win minimum jackpots so that people won't think it's rigged that you can't win a jackpot under $100 million LOL!

New Jersey snatches the Powerball Jackpot at 40million! Lol
I knew from the very beginning when they went to $2, this current format was a gamble. After all, it usually takes seven draws without a winner for the jackpot to be fully funded under the new minimum...

New Jersey snatches the Powerball Jackpot at 40million! Lol
snip , the states are losing money on Powerball! Last Saturday's win in Tennessee was underfunded by $17 million, and last night's win was underfunded by $19 million! In fact, they paid out more mone...

$HALF-BILLION! Powerball raised again on monster sales
We might very well see our first 1 billion dollar jackpot if it is not won tonight.

$380 MILLION: Massive sales push Powerball jackpot higher
It will most certainly hit half a billion dollars if there's no winner tonight.

According to my retailer there is a new national lottery game coming
A game with a $25 million starting jackpot and capped $50 million jackpot. This sounds like a game I might play.

So much for those big jackpots from Mega Millions LOL
No matter how high the lotteries jack up the odds, the jackpot can still be won even at low sales levels. Nobody buys a ticket and thinks, I hope the jackpot rolls. LOL Remember back in December 2012,...

Why does the Mega Millions Jackpot not start at $40 mil?
I've actually found THIS as a breakdown of the prize pool allocations on the California Lottery website: ----------------------------------------------- Prize Levels Odds Percentage of Total Pri...

Why does the Mega Millions Jackpot not start at $40 mil?
If that's the case, then Mega Millions should start at $20 million, but keep the minimum $5 million increases, especially seeing as the Mega Millions annuity is larger than the Powerball annuity given...

Powerball
Yeah, and someone from California won on March 1 as well, and the jackpot was only $60 million!

Why is the new cash option so low for MM?
Right, Jon D, California sales are not counted in the 50% or 300% of sales, and California prize liability is not counted for purposes of the MM total prize liability cap either, since CA's prize liab...

Why is the new cash option so low for MM?
PB is over $70 million on its fourth draw in any given run for the first time ever. Of course, sales for that game have been strong lately (partially thanks in part to the recent MM jackpot run giving...
