is not the cutoff time 9 p.m.?

i wonder if this stupid cutoff time might account for about 100 million in lost sales.

Thinking of...

9pm in NY, the latest for any state is 10pm.

Mega millions cut off though in NY is 10:45 for an 11:00 draw, go figure.

    This kind of money can make a difference to not only a family but also a small country like the Bahamas. I pray I will win this jackpot.

      When I win, I'm going to live the life of Reilly, just as soon as I find out who Reilly is.

        I don't think one person is going to win,  but if one person does win it,  I hope it's me!Big Grin Angel

         

        I'm buying a ticket or two tomorrow. I know the line is going to be long, but winning millions is well worth it.

          I don't trust financial advisers.If they're so good at their jobs,why aren't they retired & living on a south pacific island instead of working for a living?

          Most financial advisers work on a pre-set fee and do not make as much money as you would think. On the other hand, money/fund managers are the ones who get paid the big bucks as they get a percentage based on assets under management as well as a cut of the overall gains.

              Well, this is pretty exciting. I can only really afford a $2 ticket. Oh the joy of unpaid internships!

                I won $3 on a $1 mega millions ticket tonight. I bought my one $2 powerball ticket at the same time so, technically that ticket is now free.  Smile

                  I can't believe that Powerball is estimated to be around $500 million.  This is a very, very, very huge amount.  Tickets are also selling like hotcakes in may lottery stores...I am crossing my fingers that I'll be the next winner.

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

                        I WILL PLAY THE LOTTERY SOMEDAY TO AVOID THE LOTTERY INSANITY. IT IS OKAY TO DREAM.

                        I AM A THRIFTY LOTTERY PLAYER BECAUSE I SAVE LINES TO PLAY SOMEDAY.

                        OUR REGULAR LOTTERY PROGRAMMING.

                        1) Playing the lottery more often for less lines= Playing a single line.

                        2) Playing the lottery less often for more lines= Playing multiple lines.

                        3) Playing the lottery less often for less lines= Playing a single line monthly or yearly.

                        4) Playing the lottery more often for more lines= Spending more money= Gambling addiction.
