Smart Man-I do the same $4.00 if its below $50million and $6.00 tops if its over. I've won smaller prizes but that's my limit .

        I always said I would love to win the jackpot after a record breaking one. That would be plenty enough for me.

          "Buy 5 Powerball/PowerPlay Tickets For Next Draw, Get 1 Free! (While Powerball jackpot is $15,000,000)

          Wow, PA must be really worried about sales now. So worried they offered ONE ticket for buying $10 worth of tickets. Hold on while I immediately rush out to take advantage of this great offer!!!!!

           

           

           

           

          Not. Esecially considering the odds. They will have to do A LOT better than that to get me to buy these rip off tickets that I normally hate buying anyway.

            That deal is for players who like playing PB even when the jackpot is $15M.

              And also for ones who only play high jackpots and matched just the powerball with a 3X in the last drawing.  This will encourage those to "reinvest" their $9 winnings into another $10 ticket.  Or to induce those who matched 3 without the powerplay also to reinvest their $7 into another ticket.

                  1. the winner is probably NOT from Indiana but from Ohio.

                  2. this SAME THING happened several years ago I THINK the SAME STORE too! Someone look it up.. remember the motorcycle gang (errr... machine shop employees, that is) there were 13 guys that won the first 300+ drawing back around 1998, they bought it in Richmond, possibly same store.. someone can research this? I am familiar with the Speedway station and the town of Richmond having made four trips to there. The store is the first gas station after you pass under the blue "arch" and exit I-70 WB onto US 40 (National Road) WB, it's on the righthand side and across from such wonderful places as the Days Inn, Steak-N-Shake, Richmond Square Mall, and Richmond Lanes bowling alley. There's a Burger King nearby the Speedway so the winner can get a Mocha BK Joe to celebrate if they don't like the Steak-N-Shake. Also be sure to visit Glenn Miller Park but watch out for those giant "ducks"!

                  3. I have been to that gas station several times in late 90's and even played Powerball but unfortunately not been there in nearly 10 years.

                  4. IF it is the same store, it stands to reason there's a higher likelihood of such a store selling 2 major winners being it's on the border and on or near two major highways! There seems a disproportionate number of winners lately of those who went to the edge of a Powerball state to play.

                    Sirbrad, I often enjoy your comments! You bring folks down to earth sometimes and do so in a funny way.

                    Our group gets these tickets so one more isnt going to change our streak of bad luck. We are determined to remain on our losing streak. That we can count on! This is actually the first year that we wont have enough funds from our winnings to get a happy meal . Normally we celebrate our year winnings with a dinner out at christmas. This year might be a Brown bag meal....

                    I really dont understand why PA isnt hitting this year. We are a large playing state and still cant get a taste of the good life....

                    ~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

                     Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014

                          If you matched 4of5+0 four times and only got a couple of hundreds, you were cheated Disapprove
                           4of5+0 pays $100 each time.

                            Sorry, what happened was

                            I matched 4 numbers twice = $100 + $100 = $200

                            I matched 3 numbers twice =  $7 + $7= $14

                            which = $214
