I just knew that I'd somehow get a piece of that record PowerBall run. Nope, it wasn't to be. I matched 1+1 on MADDOG10's challenge, but I didn't cash for anything in reality...nada. I really wasn't prepared to hit the big one anyway, but I think I could have well managed any of the lower tier prizes.
Well, luck just hasn't smiled on me since the white ball matrix change went into effect. I'm joining the ranks of those who only play when the pot becomes an overlay. I guess that would be about 147 million now. I also think I'm going to become a QP player for PowerBall. The odds are just too big for any number handicapping strategy that I've been able to formulate. I'll apply those skills to Lotto South and Hoosier Lotto.
Good luck to the rest of you who will be hamering out the numbers for every draw. I'll just step in with a buck or two when the pot gets juicy, but I'll surely be thankful to everyone who made that pot so big for me. From there, it's just a matter of my QP's and my luck coming through. I think it's about time for that.
