OMG!  I will go crazy and get two tickets again.

Just as the bird sings or the butterfly soars,

because it is his natural characteristic,

so the artist works.

      The current large jackpot is the result of a long string of games when the house did win. Cumulative-jackpot lotteries such as Powerball are essentially a massive transfer of value from the dupes who play when the jackpot is small to the wiser ones who wait until the jackpot is big, with the house taking a healthy cut along the way. Here's the one piece of solid advice in this column: If you play Powerball every day, stop playing Powerball every day. If your dollar can be spent for a 1 in 80 million chance of $10 million or a 1 in 80 million chance of $120 million, why would you choose the former? By Jordan Ellenberg.

      Must drive you nuts being so close to all those second place winners. I can see why your thrifty.

        I have a feeling they will let it go to new york or jersey because of the storm for three weeks ny has won the million and yesterday ny won the 1and2 million prize but like everyone i will buy the tickets i really think with the lottery setup the way it is they can choose if the jackpot has a winner and what state gets it.

          glad to see powerball joined hes  cousin mega millions in 400 million range

          they grow up so fastCool

           

          i had some massive lotto fever thanks to mega millions 600m one

           

          am sure this  powerball  give me the lottery fever again!

          cue the 100s of media reports about this. free marketing time for lotteries!

          also think state lotteries will set new sales records for the month :D lucky dogs

           

          and its a good thing indeed tod powerball changed its game design/rules

          before the change, we even had a stupid Cap on lottery jackpot amount

          , it would Never of got this high with that thing sure in there, the change was for the better!

          now we can see how big powerball can go.

          i was thinking before tonite, o ya 300+ million, its won . nope, what a happy shock.

          Nuclear Alarm Siren sounds plays in background.

          i think mega millions 600m jackpot, got raised  many times over,  lotto fever is back and there no telling how high this pupply will fly before drawing time

          500+ million  easy i say by draw time

          i doubt it can reach mega millions total, sadly it would need 1 more draw for that

          and if it somehow pulls off that like 3% chance of whatever % chance of it rolling

          with nearly ever Set of numbers played, and rolls, say hello to 800 million range, 

          god help us all if it does that"wallets will be hurting"   as am sure people personal "lottery budgets " how much they spend on it, are already being tossed out the windows with this one. like mega millions  600 before it, that thing was a monster.

            You are not alone willie123, Many of our most beloved LP members feel the lottery chooses who wins.

                    I was just thinking....... if you call it part of your "budget" you can buy as many tickets as you have money in the bank. You could even borrow money and "budget" the payments.....

                        For everyone that thinks the lottery is not rigged!

                        "That should tell you something about the odds of hitting all 5 numbers and the PB."

                        Yeah! think of how the biggest lottery was won by 3 freaking tickets!

                        Most that are high are always split with more than 1 winner it seams.

                        Instead of making the lottery payouts higher why not every time they draw numbers they keep drawing until they have a winner so at least 2 winning ticket holders per week  win some  worth while money???

                        HOW TO WIN THE LOTTERY BY NOT PLAYING= SAVE YOUR MONEY.

                        I play the lottery to support education? lol

                        ALL YOU NEED IS 1 LOTTERY TICKET AND A DREAM.

                            I went from zero to 100% with a $2 powerball ticket, and I did not win.
