      Really? was it because you didn't have time or you didn't feel lucky?

      I went last minute because I felt that maybe I would get something small for my efforts, lol. It didn't happen.

      My approach to lottery play is getting BETTER ODDS and PB has stretched the limits of improbability.

        They are holding $100's of millions. If they could figure out a way to award a few extra million each draw regardless if the JP was won or not I think more people would be interested in playing.

          The last time I threw $20. bucks down on it I turned over the ticket and realized I was only going to get $100. dollars if I hit a 3+1. I felt insulted by the muilt million $$ giant and I don't understand why anyone plays??

            Do people have ANY concept of the fact that the odds of 3+1 are 1 in 12,245........   ???????????

            That means you can spend $24,490. for a break even chance at winning $100. ...................

                                                                  What?

                  Ohio has stopped putting the odds of winning on their PowerBall play slips while continuing to put them all the other games' play slips.  I think it may be because PB ticket cost $2 per line and the odds on the other games are based on a dollar per line and based on cost per line those odds might confuse or discourage customers from playing PB.

                    Okay Ronnie! I'm getting depressed and what's worse the Xanax bottle is empty and my concierge doctor is in Maui with his hooker turned fiance. This is not the time for REALITY CHECKS.

                      OOpsadaisey........ Try and hold together Original Bey. I stand corrected by RJOh as the PB play slip does in fact say "ODDS PER PLAY" which is very good news because now you only need to trade $19k to get $100.

                      I sincerely hope this helps.

                          Interesting RJOh, I dont think the back of my play slip has changed at all...... 

                          Its still 1 in 5,153,632 "per play" for the 5+0

                              Exchange prediction board credits for cash??? Not a bad idea, perhaps management will consider the idea??

                              Excellent predictions btw....... You blew the stated lottery odds completely away with your number sets....
