Hope this doesn't expand the matrix.

59 numbers is tough enough, beyond that just send the $2 in to PB and skip the formality of playing.

Bang Head

Actually for the convenience of all other states, you could just mail in $208 in one lump sum for the whole year.

Although it would be nice of them to provide free postage, since your not going to win anyways.  Yes Nod

      Thanks! I was wondering what took so long.

      Now we can join in the insanity next time there is a huge JP.  I wonder how long before someone in California wins? I say within the first three months.

      Months?  Try weeksLOL

        Well thank you helpmewin, that is the nicest post I have ever read! I would be thrilled with the 40 million starting JP.

         

                                                                 jj

         

        I'm guessing with California joining that the JPs will grow even faster.

        It was always in the stars for me to be a lottery winner.

            Factoring in their population and % of lottery players, I would conservatively estimate the JP's to grow 18% faster per drawing.  Type

              People, try to win a powerball jackpot before California joins. You all know what will happen when they join.No No

              It's a futile effort.

                      Perfect now NY and CA can dominate all the PB jackpot wins!    Party   Hyper    Banana     Hurray!      Patriot

                      Welcome aboard CA!  See Ya!

                      California is the most populated state in The Union...  37 million people live there, Texas is number 2 and NY is the third most populated state.  Jackpots will probably get bigger at a faster rate. 

                      I dont care if Cali wins all the jackpots, I play PB for it's second prize due to the 5 million to 1 odds, and I always add the Power Play.

                      Winning a Jackpot - unlikely but POSSIBLE!

                        elsewhere on the big jackpot, they saw how much they made when MegaMillions

                        was at the record jackpot, they're not going to miss out on that again!!

                        They voted real quick!! lol

                          Guys with CA joining PB, this will be first time ever single state with a lottery has 1 large game,

                          aka  pure national game, even thro musty everyone has both.

                          Florida holding out on getting MM, and that be last state we need to cave in now with CA getting to starting point of pb game,      both games have proven them self's this year with ticket sales ,  both should of been joined already by them.

                           hell am more shocked, atfer that 656 mega millions jackpot, Florida didn't do what CA is doing right now

                          waking the hell up and going <snip> we really need to join right about now....

                           

                          CA lottery people knew ahead of time, it be profitable, they just dragged there feet for a freaking year.  this run was a wakeup call, ya we been dragging our feet, i guest we better join now................... cant miss anymore super large sells runs.

                          god forbid  the morons cost them selfs millions in sales again.  they wish they had profits form this monster we just had

                           

                          i am happy for us all thro, now with ever single lottery state behind pb, it can't get any better,  we have max  power per say , so now we just need more states to get lotteries LOL

                            No big deal.  I'm glad California didn't have PowerBall for this drawing.  The odds are 176,000,000 to 1 against you.  You're not gonna win anyway.

                              cali money and no state income tax on lottery winnings should mean a billion dollar plus jackpot in 2013.
