Cash 3 Excel Straight Program
Not trying to be negative here but I really don't understand the point of this when the file gives about 300 numbers to play; which naturally would give you a 30% win rate! 1/3 of the entire pool of numbers. What is value in this - why would you play so many numbers. The percentage is so misleading.

What are the odds
I just noticed an error in the D-trap program, The error is tied to the matrix values. If you set the
first value, the number of balls drawn first then set the pool value, the pool value does not update
within the program. This could prevent you from being able to enter digits into some cells. There are
2 ways to correct this for now, the first would be to set the number of balls in the pool first then set
the value for how many balls/numbers are drawn. You could also set t ...

What are the odds
I don't know of any books but I have never really looked, the idea here is to gain an advantage but
that is based on the users ability to select digits. The game is random and as such there is no secure
method of selection.
The overall odds for a JP win are better for the lines generated from a pool of 24 numbers selected using
typical methods but only because there are many more lines that can be generated. If however a person
is not put off by winning more l ...

This makes no sense whatsoever- agree, disagree- what?
In November 2012, California promulgated the regulations for Powerball in the state. Similar to Mega Millions, all non jackpot draws in the state are within an intrastate pool, with California sending its jackpot share (30% of draw sales) to MUSL for addition to the multi-state jackpot pool. This leads to different prize amounts for equivalent winners sold in California when compared to those sold in the other 44 jurisdictions. ...

MONOPOLY Millionaires club
The Vegas thing is done through each state's own website (which requires registering with name and address etc), so they will notify you by the same methods that they do for any other second-chance promos that the lottery holds. Basically each lottery randomly chooses 3 players from its pool of tickets entered between the draw period. If you go to the playmmc.com you can choose your state and it will tell you when the Vegas drawings will be held.

New multi-state lottery game launches Sunday
That's because Power Play does not have an equal pool of the multiplier numbers. There are more 2's than 5's to draw from etc.

Unclaimed Powerball Jackpot set to Expire in NY
Regarding your question of finding the winner, as of last December the lottery claimed to be actively seeking the individual(s). I assume that holds true now.
I think that in New York any unclaimed prize money is returned to the player prize pool. For multi-state games like Powerball, all the participating states receive back their share of the jackpot sales. So New York won't be getting the full $73,356,671.49 if indeed the prize goes unclaimed.

Oregon man keeps childhood promise, splits $1M Powerball with brother
They must have consulted a tax lawyer who advised them to claim together rather than one person to claim and write a personal check to his brother at which point it would be considered a gift. The brothers can easily claim they are in a lottery pool together and IRS would just have to accept it. I would give my brother half even if we have no such agreement. He's a good man.

If you won a huge jackpot would you feel obligated to share it?
This would not be a gift, in a lottery pool only ticket win the j/p. An everyone get a equal share and no one sign the ticket. It maybe five or more people in the pool and each can received cash value or annuity. So with a lawyer you should be able to let your family be a shared winner of that ticket.
