I don’t get why power ball is catching fever, people enticed by the large payout but, those same people would probably still be quite happy with a million dollars, and Powerball has the worst odds. Wouldn’t you rather play a game with better odds but less payout. and it costs more!!

I don't have any theory on that...only my observation. Maybe some Alabama state lottery is not focusing on marketing Powerball in their area. Maybe, people here are not aware of Powerball? huh? or maybe, people here don't like to play Powerball, they choose to play other lottery games...
