This had to have been a fluke.

NY should have taken this mammoth jackpot down again.

I think there should be an investigation, and AZ & MO need to relinquish any claims to this drawing immediately!

Shameful, just plain shameful!   BS

It is great to see a state like Arizona win a big lottery jackpot. It was a long time since Arizona did not a big jackpot. It makes mega millions and powerball fair to everybody that plays.

    Arizona has won a powerball jackpot. Ronnie wish has come true.

    Was Ronnie the winner. Ronnie always buys multiple lines. He is a LOTTERY WHALE.

    It will be great if he won. He is a great member in the lottery post community.

    Ronnie316 is a living legend here at LP.   Cool

    His legacy will echo on for eons.  Patriot

      Did you wake up finally? LOL Funny how during every record jackpot new members arrive claiming they won trying to rile up others and seeking attention. Face it you did not win crap. If you did post some pics of the ticket, and post your name now so when the winners are revealed they match. I guarantee that you won't do either. The Powerball is just an evil game that gets people's hopes up and makes them excited only to be severely let down and depressed once they find out they lost...again. I am not convinced that anyone actually wins it until I see a winner I know or get a winning ticket myself. I matched 2 numbers and the powerball and only played 2 tickets. I hope to win the raffle again this year also as I won $100 last year playing one ticket. I have won thousands on smaller games but I still don't trust the jackpot games 100%.

      Silence speaks louder than words. Ronnie has not said a word after the powerball jackpot was won. It would be funny,if he won such a big jackpot.

        I have yet to see anyone on here prove they won a large jackpot, but if you are going to say you did you need to prove it or you may as well say nothing. If I won I would post pics of the ticket once I had claimed it just so I could be the first member in LP history to do so.

          MC, I really find it odd that Ronnie316 has not posted anything yet. I wonder how he feels right now, if he really won. lol

              Well folks, only 2 lucky winners. I was correct on the 2 tier winners, I said there would be a whole bunch of winner on that in another post yesterday. 27 STATES had winners. 66 people in all with the 2 tier wins. Just seen on the news that 90 per cent of the numbers was quick picks. 34.00 dollars I spent on this draw. Had no winning numbers on any of my tickets. It was exciting to think about winning, but will have to wait for Saturday draw. Hey! everybody have a nice day!     P.S. where is ridge runner at??

                He may in a state of shock THRIFTY.

                This would not be at all uncommon, for the recent recipient of a $290 million jackpot prize.

                Perhaps after his morning constitution, he will be ready to face the world, and make his grand announcement to all here at LP!   Cussing Face

                    Be careful you might get what you wish for.

                    Ronnie316 might be in a state of shock, if he won the powerball jackpot.lol

                      Interesting that all the white balls were below 31.  The old birthday paradox method.  Figured more people would have hit since all numbers were below 31.

                      If you had 158 grand sitting around and played all the combos you would have won a cool million.

                      You are incorrect.

                       

                      Even though, the selected white balls were all below 31, as you have correctly noted;  the pool from which the white balls were selected remained at 59

                      The mathematical formula for choosing 5 balls out of 59 with no regard for the order of selection and repetition is not allowed is as follows: n!/((n-r)!(r!)); where n is 59, r is 5 and ! stands for factorial.

                      The total combinations possible is 5,006,386 

                      I am curious: what was the formula and rules that you used to come up with 158,000 possible combinations?

                        He got 1+1 on the tic he showed so maybe hes cashing it in.
