I will be double checking all my tickets, but I only had one QP with the number "6" bonus ball

I thought that you had won the powerball jackpot. Why did it take you so long to post Buddy? I was sheering for you.

    My set of 39 was 5 of 5 and I picked some of my lines from that group........

          I do believe in getting "BETTER ODDS" Thrifty.........

          Ronnie, I went shotgun on powerball with a $20 powerball quick pick ticket. I did not win anything on it, but I won $24.50 on a $2 take 5 quick pick.The take 5 ticket had the number 5 at the beginning of line A and B, but I still won $24.50. I do not feel so bad about losing on powerball because I won it back on New York Take 5.

          You had to see other players faces when they saw me collecting $24.50 from a $2 New York Take 5 quick pick ticket. lol, lol,lol

                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?

                Wouldn't that be 79,000 possible combinations if you spent $158,000?

                  Do you think it was sold at that store in white hills. There was a pic in the usa today showing the huge line outside.

                      Congrats to the two big jackpot winners and all those 2nd tier winners. It's awesome to see so many states getting a piece of the pie!

                       

                      I won a whopping $4.

                        Ronnie, thanks GOD that I won my shotgun playing method money back. I usually buy a single line on MM and PB because it takes balls to lose playing shotgun man. It does not feel good to lose $20 in one shot. I am just too cheap.

                        I am cutting the multiple lines to $10 on powerball.

                          Aye, I'd imagine the same folks that I saw buying tickets with huge stacks of 20's on the March $656M jackpot did the same this time around, I just hope that wasn't money reserved for food or Christmas.

                          We did have one of the 1 Million dollar winners in our area, just down the road in Humble, congrats to all the winners!

                            Wouldn't that be 79,000 possible combinations if you spent $158,000?

                            Playing 79,000 combinatins is a very small number when your talking about PB........

                              I took your advice, spent less and won more. I will spend my $7 someday.

                              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.

                              I SET A LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT TO MINIMIZE MY LOSSES.

                              A lottery stop loss limit is very important to be a successful lottery player over the long term.

                              GOOD LUCK EVERYBODY.
