2010 will be a big year for lottery players in The United States. That’s because, in 2010, the two biggest lotteries in the country will merge. The merger will involve Powerball and Mega Millions. The merger does not mean that the two lotteries will become one lottery. Rather, it means that people in participating states will have the option of buying tickets in whichever of the two games they want. 토토
Prior to the lottery merger, there were certain states that participated in the Powerball game and there were certain states that participated in the Mega Millions game. None of the states offered both. In 2010, all states participating in the two lotteries will have the option of selling tickets to both games.
What will happen to the size jackpots in the two lottery games following the merger? A few things are possible. First, the size of the jackpots could grow at a faster rate than they had previously. That’s because, with millions of more people having access to the two games, millions of more people would buy tickets. Higher ticket sales means that there will be more money available to be paid out as jackpots. Consequently, jackpots may be won sooner. As more people play, it would be more likely that someone would win a jackpot. Prior to the merger, we would often see no winners for weeks, or even a couple of months, causing the jackpots to grow to astronomical levels. That means that, although the jackpots could grow at a faster rate, they would probably be won sooner. That means that we probably won’t be saying very many jackpots exceed, say, $200 million.
Perhaps you are not too fond of the Powerball and Mega Millions lottery merger. Maybe you liked watching the jackpots grow high over time. Well, then you’d be happy to know that an even bigger national American lottery is planned. Eventually, a new game is planned to be unveiled where the jackpots could easily surpass the half-billion dollar level. Look for it to begin in late 2010 or some time in 2011.
