    Actually, I was hoping to win BOTH the Powerball and Megamillions! Not that I'm greedy or anything... just thought that would be cool.

    I'm just glad I bought 10 weeks of tickets as we drove through Virginia last week, so if it keeps going on up, I still have tickets!!

    I live in NC and I'm pretty sure NO ONE here has won the big Powerball EVER! And again, it didn't happen.

    And actually, I like Megamillions better. Better odds, less states, win more money overall than Powerball. Hence, why we always buy them when in Virginia.

        I agree.  I believe there was a young business student who won a lottery not too long ago and either it was the first time he had every played the lottery or he just did it on a whim, I can't remember which but he was shocked he won.  I find it hard to believe in the law of attraction when people like us that sit around begging whatever entity we believe in to let us win some $$$ and then someone who has never played (AND FORGETS TO CHECK THEIR NUMBERS FOR DAYS) before wins.  What about the guy who won that died and his wife found the ticket post mortem??? Speaking to the law fo attraction, I'm so OCD with it i even check on first class flights prices to destinations of my choosing a few days after the draw so I will know how much it will cost me to look at houses when or if I move.  I scope out banks for the best CD rates and research tax laws too.  But alas I have never won more than $100 and that was on scratch offs.   I don't know how much more I could "attract" a win.  Maybe the lottery fairy will sprinkle her lucky dust on me soon!

              smart smart person buying a multi draw ticket in virginia. i always buy multidraw tickets.

              megamillions may have beter odds but i win more on powerball. i do play both games.

                        Hey! I live in a remote podunk town (with an area actually called Podunk near by) does that mean I have a chance? Scared

                        You can't predict random.

                          The Law of Attraction is going to get me out of my podunk little town here in California before the weather gets back up to 100 degrees. Tonight is my night!

                              - if you don't win and someone else does, you have contributed to their joy.
                              Pat yourself on the back!

                              - I have more MM than PB because I do better on MM and the PB matrix changed,
                              fouling my best algorithms. I did play in PA though; the machine screwed up and
                              gave me PB tickets for Feb. 25 to March ?? instead of Janu. when I played them.

                              - If I win the jackpot I will buy a new snow shovel and a pair of black Levi's from Sears.
