PB or MM?


Dormant account
MM: $76[$55m]
PB: $173[$107.7m]

So, PB is higer than MM by $100m;However, now that PB costs $2 you get 5 lines
for $10, but 12 lines of MM in NY for $10.
Also, the cash option is same since you pay twice for a PB ticket. Meaning, old PB odds and cost at $1,
then better to play it instead of MM... notwithstanding MM's higher 2nd prize.

Personally, I preferred to have a choice of both $1 of PB and powerplay for $2, not $3. So anyone
taking lump sum should go for MM instead of PB. Annuity is $6.65m - PB, $2.9 - MM.


Well. I can't play those due to residency restrictions.... BUT!

We have a lottery here in Israel- the odds are just dumb to play.

In bonus-ball lotteries where the bonus ball is compulsory, the odds are often even lower. The chance of winning the jackpot in MM is: 1 in 175,711,536.

I'd much rather save my money for a trip to Macau, or Europe, or back to the States to get to AC or Vegas!

Much better chances of getting a good win! (I also have a better chance of being eaten by a shark while getting stuck by lightning, but that is neither here not there.)

But, some people like the lotto. And there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with that!:)

Best of luck! :thumbsup:
