"PB is selling105,000 tickets per minute", just wondering how they do that? Lottery hopefuls all over the world might have been praying so hard to win the jackpot prize.  I couldn't imagine how big the money is.

                They should have a rule where they postpone the drawing for a day if they want to......What?

                  They could just say that the drawing machine is in the shop for repairs............

                      Right..... 24 hours would be reasonable expectations for enlisting a replacement......

                              Powerball is drawn in Florida.Orlando,I think.

                              I'm not sure about MegaMillions,but I think I read somewhere that it was drawn in Georgia,but I could be wrong.
