The results so far on my experimental powerplay budget.
On the first day, 04/04/07, I matched Nil - I wasn't even close.
On the second drawing, I matched 2 in two lines - Nothing impressive.
Third drawing of the month, matched 1 number each in three lines. Also matched the powerball in one of those three lines for 1+1. Powerplay was 2.
4th drawing, multiplier 10x shows up. Matched the powerball. Did very poorly on the whiteballs by matching 1 number in a single line. - Was still disappointed.
Fifth drawing, did expect any powerball match, didn't match any. Didn't match a single number out of 8 lines. A big Zero.
I made slight changes and twinked the system before the fifth draw. Also discovered possible glitch.
I'm looking forward to the second half of experiement.
So far $100/$200 budget
Exact expence: $90
Matches: 1+1. Powerplay 2
0+1. Powerplay 10
