I know the matrix is changing for powerball, but why add some many to the white balls and take away from the red powerballs? Why not just add the same amount to both? would that make the odds of winning harder to win... I thought that 42 might be someones favorite powerball number and now that person would lose it... I would have just extended the white balls to 57 and then the red powerball to 44 or 45... would the odds still be close if powerball did this rather than 1 - 59 ( white balls ) and 1 - 39 ( red balls )

    The object of the change is to make it harder to get 5+0!

    Discusion about the forth coming PowerBall Matrix changes is in this thread:
