    USA mega has the game info. Link on left.

    Jackpot analysis

    http://www.usamega.com/powerball-jackpot.htm

    you misunderstood me.  Don't worry about it, you're not the first one. 

     

    The original "estimated" jackpot amount for the last drawing was 200 million dollars.  After the winners were announced, the amount they actually won was 207 million dollars.  The original "estimated" cash amount was 101.1 million dollars.   If the annuity amount changed, then the cash amount changed.  But I can never find that information out anywhere.   Except the last time I got it from FJA!

      I think I may know what your talking about.

      The difference is the amount of tickets sold after one drawing till the next drawing cutoff for purchase.  The winners are entitled to those too.

      For instance.......

      If on a Wednesday draw, and the amount was for 100M.....and no one won... next jackpot is say 115M...

      The next jackpot is 115M, but the tickets sold after Wednesday draw up to the next draw are added to the jackpot.

      I hope that makes sense, because I totally confused myself.  I hope someone else can explain it better.

        I Agree! only the me is not you, it's me and I'm going to keep trying even if I lose.

          I know how you feel....I'm horribly unlucky.  And I used to think positive like most should, but it never has gotten me anywhere for years of playing.

          Now I get to where I feel all winners will always be back east.  Though I know deep, deep, deep, deep , deep down that its not true.  We have had a whole 2 jp winners in Washington in 6 years LMAO..but I guess you just need to look at it as you really won't ever win if you don't play.

          I feel bad everytime I buy a stupid scratcher, and walk away to see in under 5 minutes that I'm a loser again. I guess maybe someday I'll have some luck.....feeling horrible and unlucky...I'll continue to buy for that what if.

          As hard as it seems, just think of a purchase as a loss, and not a win.  A win is just luck...your taking a chance on having some luck.  So think of it as that.....you spend 5$..your out $5 unless your pull off some great luck, then you know its worth it.

          Knowing me though?..I'll play for years and years and years......grey hair and false teeth....and the only thing I'll have to show for  is $1 wins.   

          I would love to be a fly on the wall in the house of a soon to be jp winner.  Love to see just what a "Oh my god I won the JP!" face looks like.

          keep trying!!!!!!!!!!!!

            I would assume that the change in the annuity amount is because they sold more tickets than they expected. If that's the case, the cash amount will still be the same percentage of the annuity value. 101.1/200=50.55%.  .5055*207 million is 104.64 million.

              That is a huge help, thank you. Cheers

                        Great story - congrats!!

                        Legend says that The Craggy One was once asked about the Lottery Circle and the aged Lottery LoreKeeper whispered in his gravelly eloquence,"It is known among our kind that 2 successive draws are in reality the 2 center-points of 2 intersecting circles that share a common radius - a Root Center. This Vesica Piscis is the creative womb for all numbers, the Still Point from which two draws will unite & a new one is born. This "perfect" space is a wormhole through Time(Change). Master its proportions & your numerical predictions will not falter".
