Michael M. - if you were going to play the numbers that came out, then yes kick yourself. but if you were going for QP then you were probably not going to win! You see, the QP is racing through combinations millions per second, so it depends on the exact instant the clerk pushed the QP button that landed exactly on a winning combination and put it on the ticket. Your going on the line to play may have disrupted the timestream and prevented the person(s) who won AND yourself from winning. So don't feel so down. If you played and lost Powerball but someone won on the Slots then what? If you knew the future then you'd have known the winning numbers.

The odds of winning Powerball depend on how many tickets you buy and how many times you play and maybe on how good your algorithms are.

    Bought in IN, winners from OH.

    In neo-conned Amerika, bank robs you.
    Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms should be the name of a convenience store, not a govnoment agency.

      Here's the full story:

      The player who purchased the winning $163.2 million-winning Powerball ticket in Lawrenceburg, Indiana. has claimed their riches through GMTR Investments, LLC. GMTR Investments, LLC was represented by Attorney Tim Michaels. His clients elected to take the cash option and received a one-time lump sum payment of $97,966,541 before taxes.

      "They [the winners] are a group of individuals from Cincinnati," said Michaels. "From what I understand, they like Powerball better than what they can get in the Ohio Lottery." The jackpot-winning ticket was purchased at Circle K (Mac's) in Lawrenceburg.

      This win marks back-to-back Powerball jackpots won in Indiana. The Powerball jackpot had been rolling since it was last hit Nov. 22, 2008 in Indianapolis. The winner of that prize, SWS Investments, LLC claimed their $57.6 million prize on Dec. 24, 2008. "They are very appreciative," said Michaels. "To the Lottery Commission, thank you."
