Lets say Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots were the same amount and you only want to spend $2 on lottery tickets. What would you do?
Before or after the inevitable win?

Thanks to everyone who participated in the poll. The results of the poll surprises me because more people would buy 2 quick picks for MM then any of the other options. Me personally, I'd rather have one ticket for PB than two tickets for MM if the jackpots were equal.
I think one ticket for a lottery that has a 5/59 + 1/35 matrix would be better than 2 tickets for a lottery that has a 5/75 + 1/15 matrix. I’m wondering, does getting that second ticket increase a person's odds of winning a jackpot by much?
