I don't like PB $2 ticket price but buying 10 for $20 gives you better odds of winning a millions dollars than any of those $20 new year raffle tickets most states are selling with a top prize of a million dollars.  And you'll know tonight if you've won a million dollars, no waiting 'til next year.

I Agree!

      there was one ticket in Maryland with the power play option that matched 5 numbers without the Powerball. My guess is that the guy in the Maryland surveillance footage may have been the guy that won a secondary prize.

      The ticket sold in Maryland for $250,000.00 was claimed by a woman early in the morning, the day after the drawing. She was featured on the news for several days. She claimed she picked her numbers which were the ages of family members and made the mistake of writing down a 5 as the first number instead of a 3. The mistake earned her the $250.000.00. She stated she has poor vision which cause the mistake.

      Feeling,  PRICELESS!!!Banana

      Peace be with you!!

                They should publish the real odds of winning.lol

                The "real" odds vary greatly depending on a persons style of play........

                  I LOVE when rich people win the lottery. I'd like to wish this man good luck, but I wouldn't mean it.

                            If that were the case we would have heard his story by now...... Just another WacArnolds worker....

                            That's not his story, he never came forward and claimed anything so please

                            stop comparing him to that McD's employee!! I was the media that claimed he

                            might have been the other jackpot winner.

                              I agree with you!  I can see if he started telling people he won and doing interviews but that was not the case.  However, I do recall a news reporter saying he did indeed talk to that man and he said he won (maybe the news reporter was lying just to get publicity).  He could have wery well won $10,000.

                              He knew he had not one anything over $1m so therefore, it was the stores fault for releasing that video and the media for making the story so big.  One thing, I am glad the couple in AZ went ahead and claimed the ticket.

                              A reporter had even tracked the MD man down to where he saw him getting into that black van and approached him.  The media sometimes cause a big ruckus in people lives without even knowing the truth.

                              So, let's give the man a break because he did not make a fool of himself, he never said he won--we never heard from him again.

                              Let's give MD. players another chance:)

                              Can't wait until the next big jackpot, at least over $100M before CA get in the game:)

                              Oh, one more thing--I live in TX and how come we have been off the map since 2007 for winning any major jackpot...gosh..
