Well I have been playing the powerball regularly for the past nine years and in that time I have managed to obtain no higher than a 4+0 prize level. Every year since 1997 my new years resolution is not loss weight, not a love interest, but to win the powerball jackpot. This new years will be my tenth resolution and it is going to be different. I am going to ask for a 4+1 win or higher for 2006 year and I think that I will ask that every year until I get it. Once I hit that level then I will get greedy and ask for a second 5+1 win or branch out and ask for a 5+1 win in that other multi-state game and I will continue to ask until I get that. Maybe I should start small and ask for a 6+0 in my state pick-6 game and then go for the "triple crown". I could see my name in the record books as the only person to win his state lottery, Powerball and Mega millions the lottery "triple crown".
