« Iowa Powerball Results: 2 Prizes Of $100K Among State’s Winners | Main | On Veterans Day: We’re Grateful For This Extra Help For Iowa Veterans »

November 09, 2022


Hello. We do sometimes hear the comment that you have made about the jackpot, but people vote with their pocketbooks on this issue. Sales in games like Powerball and Mega Millions follow the jackpot up. The higher the jackpot goes, the higher sales go, and that in turn pushes the jackpot even higher. Lottery players' behavior indicates that a whole lot of people do indeed want to play for a jackpot as big as we saw last week.

IMAGINE: 1000 people winning a 1 million dollar jackpot instead of 1 person winning 1 billion.

Might actually get even more people to play and spread those tax dollars around to other states as well as changing the lives of thousands instead of just one person.
