I agree with Gordon, More winners would definitely be more fun and generate more interest in playing lotto games thus generating more sales, and sales drive all businesses.

And the reason bigger jackpots pull more players to play is due to media exposure and hype, not people checking the jackpot amounts every week and saying the themselves...
"Hey,The jackpot is really big this week,I think I'll buy a ticket"

40-53-60-68-69 and Powerball 22. The Power Play number was 3.

Hi, Gordon. I've addressed that question in earlier blog posts, and I'll share the details again here as well. Overall sales in the games would appear demonstrate a different mindset. Sales have always followed the jackpots up, so it seems that a whole bunch of folks do want a chance at a giant prize. And, the rules in Powerball and Mega Millions don’t speak to the jackpots being divided up. Lotteries couldn’t just decide to do something different this time around. People have already purchased tickets under the current rules. Please know that we do pay attention to input and ideas, so please keep up the conversation.

Hi, Ronald. Those details are in the blog, under the section called "Drawing Details, Iowa Tickets That Won Prizes." I've included the details here as well: The winning numbers in last night’s Powerball drawing (Jan. 20) were: 40-53-60-68-69 and Powerball 22. The Power Play number was 3.

Why not draw more ticket winner numbers when the jackpot is over say one hundred million dollars so that more people can win !!! No one person needs 750 million dollars!! Just think about how many more lives would be helped if you had more winners!!!
