    i think that once states realize that it is affecting Texas' sales, they will add it.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

        How does the megaplier work?



        do you have to pay more for it?

           I believe it's the same as Power Play on Power Ball jsk, you pay an extra buck on each game and they draw a random number from 2-5 and the lower tier prizes are multiplied by that much.

          I'd bet California will have it from the get go and everybody else will follow suit.

            WA state doesn't have it but since I would never play using it I don't really care.

              The most you can get with it on Powerball is $25,000 -- 5 x the 3rd place prize of $5,000.  It doesn't count for the 2nd place prize of $100,000. There's controversy over whether an extra buck would be better spent on that or  another Powerball ticket.

                    You're right Cash, I misread the pamphlet.  It says Power Play does not apply to Match 5 Bonus Prizes.  It didn't sound right when I read it cuz I thought I remembered somebody winning 500k on a Power Play.  I gotta lay off the Jack.

                            Cash,

                                Must have been Power Play then, I'll see if I can find it.

                              Cash,

                              I found it.  It was Eric Pearson of Marshfield Vermont.  He bought the ticket at his own convenient store on July 7 2004.  He had the second place prize on Powerball with the Powerplay option.

                              The Powerplay was 5x so he got 500,000 instead of 100,000.  Not bad for an extra buck eh?

                              You can see it at:  www.vtlottery.com/pdf/PBALL_WINNERS.pdf
