If both PB and MM jackpots were equal and you only had $2 for tickets. What would you do?

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?

I actually won back more money on PB last year, but in a case like this (which is unlikely), I would play MM.

Are the cash values the same? If yes, then one PB ticket.

I would buy 1 quick pick ticket for PB

The odds of hitting the second prize influences my decision above.

While I've boycotted both of these games, to answer the question, I'd buy one PB ticket with my own numbers.

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?
