Strange thing that happens with the Powerball...

 I will try this again, for some reason it didn't show on here before,   Anyway........  Why is it that when you look under press releases on the Powerball website with the history of the game,  there are hardly anyone who have had the power play option which match all 5 numbers  but there are alot of people who don't have the Power play and match all 5 numbers?   There mostly seems to be only 2-3 people who have the Power play option and win on a match 5.   If everyone who matched 5 numbers only had the PP option then the lottery would be losing alot more money, lol.  You can look at the history of the game and see what i mean. This sounds strange to me, i only hope the game is not controlled so we all have a chance at winning.   Thankyou for reading my blog,   jonstrue2u

Thanks for enlightening me jon...I never buy powerplay anyway, and after reading this I will really stay away from it.

You can spend $20 ~ on 10 tickets w/ powerplay or 20 tickets w/o it. In effect, you double your chances of 5/5 while foregoing the chance to multiply your prize.

It's personal preference for people like time*treat said you can buy 20 tickets for 20 bucks but only 10 tickets with power play.

Sometimes i get the power play and sometimes i don't as far as them controlling the outcome of the payouts thats not realistic they could care less whether people played power play or not.
