Difference between Powerball and Megamillions?

I thought the big jackpot was always the Powerball...now I see the Megamillions stuff. Is this new or are they the same thing?

megamillions went pretty much nationwide recently so now jackpots get as high as powerball

Megamillions is as different game.

It's pretty much the same rules, though.

Different states have different lottos. Some are part of Powerball and some are Mega Millions.

Really? Didn't realize that. But living in AL we don't have either so everyone drives to FL, GA, or TN to buy their tickets and fund their state.

So Louisiana is part of both?

No clue. You can go to the website of each lotto and see which states are members. I know TN is Powerball because its only about 30 mins to the state line and that's where we get our tickets when we do an office pool.

I'm not talking about people driving hours to do it. I'm talking about the people who live in AL near those state lines. But it does aggravate me to see that money leaving the state.

Only time I ever get a lotto ticket is through office pool when the jackpot is really big or when I go to Orange Beach on vacation and.can drive 5 minutes to the FL line and grab one for the hell of it.

ETA. It also aggravates me that people go to Tunica and gamble and that money leaves the state too. Doesn't aggravate me that people do it, but that AL is so fricking dumb that they allow this money to leave the state.
