Hundreds of millions of dollar jackpots

These huge jackpots increase ticket sales to a sky high level. On the games that have very high odds of winning, it is probably best to play these ones only when the jackpot is very, very high. This happens when nobody wins the jackpot for several weeks or even months. I have used a figure of near $500 million for the national jackpots when a $1 or $2 ticket seems to be worth it at that point, otherwise I play just the state lottery games with lower odds.
