Why aren’t 100 random Soc Sec #’s chosen as winners every time Powerball or MegaMillion lottery reaches a $100 million jackpot, so 100 people get a million dollars every few weeks. I think that would stimulate the economy, make health care affordable and provide retirement!

So you have Powerball, Mega Millions etc. These lotteries jackpots get huge! I fail to understand why they do not create better odds! If the pot is 500 million break it up into five 100 million winners! Whoever operates the lottery system is an idiot!
