Lottery Jackpot Rollover Fever Sweeping Across United States

Lottery WorldBoston, MA – Lottery Jackpot Rollover Fever Sweeping Across United States. As reported yesterday, Wednesday June 19 ’Mega Millions Winning Tickets Sold in Georgia and Nebraska’ there are more lotteries to play than the two massive multi-state lotteries; Powerball and Mega Millions.

There’s no doubt that Powerball and Mega Millions are very attractive games to play because of the potential for huge record jackpots – Powerball record, May 2013 is $590 million and Mega Millions set in March 2012 is a huge $656 million. You do the math, that’s over ONE BILLION DOLLARS in total!

If you play then you might be the lucky one who hits the next massive Powerball or Mega Millions jackpot but if not what are the other options? We have taken a closer look at both the Powerball, Mega Millions and included some state lotteries and noticed something happening over the past few weeks and months – there’s a rollover fever sweeping across the United States!

Sate vs. Multi-State?

After completing some research into Powerball, Mega Millions and the 5 state lotteries California, Florida, Illinois, Texas and New Jersey we have discovered that all seven jackpots have in total between them rolled over 93x in the past couple of months and there’s a huge $240 million in jackpot prizes available to win! This is what we found out…

  • Powerball – $127 million jackpot (6x rollover)
  • Mega Millions – $44 million jackpot (5x rollover)
  • California – $21 million (13x rollover)
  • Florida – $25 million jackpot (17x rollover)
  • Illinois – $5.3 million jackpot (17x rollover)
  • New Jersey – $8.2 million jackpot (24x rollover)
  • Texas – $9.5 million jackpot (11x rollover)

One of the most interesting things we discovered is the odds of hitting one of the ‘smaller’ state lottery jackpots are pretty darn good – the average odds of buying the winning lottery ticket for the 5 state lotteries we researched is 1 in 23 million and with an average jackpot of $13.8 million! OK it’s not the massive 100 million dollar plus Powerball and Mega Millions prizes but it’s enough to change your life forever.

The sheer size of the Powerball and Mega Millions jackpots will always make them attractive to players across the United States but don’t overlook the state lotteries; smaller jackpots (but still big enough!) and a better chance to win. The beauty of playing lotteries in the United States is the freedom to choose which game or games you want to play; you pay your money you take your choice.

NJ Lottery: Pick 6 Lotto $4m Jackpot

It is reasonable to say that the New Jersey Lottery Pick 6 Lotto may not be the biggest or most frequently won lottery and it would also be reasonable to say the fourteenth rollover jackpot prize of $4m for Monday, November 26, 2012 is cowering in the colossal shadow of Saturday’s $325m Powerball jackpot!

Whilst $325m is a gargantuan amount of money and winning it would be welcomed by every lottery player on the planet lets not forget the $4m New Jersey Pick 6 Lotto jackpot ($3m cash option) is a life changing amount of money and I suggest you would be hard pushed to find a lottery player [anyone really] who would turn this amount of money down. How many lotto players have subconsciously thought or even said to others…

“Huh, I’m not gonna bother playing because the jackpot prize is too small, it’s only $4m. I gotta feelin’ I’ve got the winning ticket and I’m gonna win the Powerball!” 

Wait a minute, let’s just think that through…it’s $4m! Just think about what you could do with $4m and just think how much it would your life? With these thoughts in your mind why not play the New Jersey Pick 6 Lotto and ‘Give Your Dreams A Chance’.

Now we’ve established the jackpot prize is worth playing for lets look at some odds.  Starting with the Powerball, the odds of winning the jackpot are a staggering 1 in 175,223,510! Compared to the odds of winning the New Jersey Lottery Pick 6 Lotto, which are less than one tenth that of the Powerball at 1 in 13,983,816 it becomes a no brainer. Play the New Jersey Pick 6 Lotto and you will have a better chance of becoming a millionaire, period! To find out more about the New Jersey Pick 6 Lotto visit their website here.
