Pennsylvania has had more lottery winners than New Mexico. It's time for New Mexico to have a big winner. Remember, New Mexico is not a country.

it's the land of enchantment

    Yeah, I think someone from Massachusetts will win this one tonight. No major jackpot winner since 2004 for Them.

      Yeah I don't go pay attention to the astronomical odds of winning. There were 17 jackpots won in 2010 for Powerball and at least 11+ jackpots won in each of the previous years. And pretty much the same goes for Mega Millions.  So you could expect at least 20+jackpot wins between both games this year. Someone is going to win, that's guaranteed. So say to yourself, it could be me!

      What he said. It only takes 1 ticket to win.

        Honestly, I've got one ticket and I'm hoping I just hit the powerball - or something.  Any small prize would be nice tonight, especially with the powerplay (I'm stuck doing a Statistics Project tonight and NJ has been throwing out repeat after repeat, which has caused me to lose a few draws.)

                hi ,do you know that there is cheatting on the lottery, I was curious for months about it ,I made some research I have been studying for 3 years the way the numbers are coming out i found stupid combinations sometimes (exp: 11 33 44 46 47    12) isn't  funny. and I found out the answer,yes there is a trick, to win power ball you need one ticket from 195 millon tickets, here is the trick.here is what they do according to article from a lottery employee, there is a hidden valve in the lottery balls covered by a tiny paper wrapped on the spot where they write numbers on the ball.they reduce air inside the ball to make it lighter and fly inside the machine easy with the air inside and the loosing combination they make them heavy to stay at buttom,the machine itself has air helps lighter balls fly all day long high as well as the power ball wich worth millions is always light and fly high, you still can get 5 numbers because the odds are ( 1 in 5,138,133 million tickets ) the only way to win is to wait for the jackpot go big and and all 195 million combinations sold out,they can't cheat there,thats why they close 2 hours a head before draw time,giving the giant computer enough time to generate all playing combination,the numbers we play,so it can generate the possible loosing combination including loosing power ball.("you never know")that the meaning of it, you are not going to know our secret.anyways. all the jackpot games,where big money are,there always a early closing time 30 minutes 1 hour 2 hours,thats the time the giant computer needs to work on also they have time to take air out from balls.why they don't make closing time 2 or 5 minutes before draw??????? don't give me excuses ohhhh!(because closing sales blaa bla bla bla),if jackpot is low no money for them,if jackpot high more money for them,I'm not saying don't play,butwatch out the game,now I play only one dollar no matter what? ,they have to get the old machine back with no air we don't need tecknology on lottery let it simple and visible to everyone,download the draw and watch the whole draw,they show number very quickly,my friend this is millions they should allow full 15 minutes and people from all states to check the balls and the machines,live so people can see and show people on Tv thats everything is alrght,then start the draw,also they should let lottery employees participate,if its a fair play,they deserve to win too,aren't they.if they are prohibited why I work there and I loose a chance to be millionaire am I stupid?? of course they know is not fair play

                since 48 states participating in the game,why the jackpot it can be $48 millions instead $20 M.(48 states = $ 48 millions) thanks to evryone,remember this is my opinion,you guess what is going on..... Smile

                      Florida Lotto will post the exact location tomorrow. The jackpot was estimated at 184, but fell short at 182.

                        The comments about the drawing being "rigged" are ridiculous.   Orlando is one of the most visited areas in the country and has many Florida Lottery winners.   Both Miami & Orlando are in the lottery news all the time.   People on this board often complain about winners in Florida, but if you lived here, you'd realize how populated it is this time of year.  Not only are there over 18.5 million legal residents, but in the winter the number of people in some areas triples.   There are not only tourists who spend a lot of money (which is normal when you're on vacation) but we have a huge number of retirees and snowbirds who spend lots of money on tickets. 

                        Anyway, that's not why I posted today.  I just thought I'd share that the ticket was purchased in a Publix supermarket on Fortune Road.  Kinda ironic, huh?  Smiley

                          The winning ticket was bought in Kissimmee, FL. That's less than a 15 minute drive from where the powerball drawings take place at Universal Studios in Orlando. Hmmmmm....nothing suspicious about that at all.

                          All I have to say is the winner's background and family tree better be checked with a fine tooth comb to make sure he or she has no connection with anyone who works at Universal Studios.

                            manhouss,

                            At one time we had a LP Urban Legends thread. Your post would have won, no question. It's still good for a lottery tin hat award. On steroids.

                            for one thing, you said:

                            since 48 states participating in the game,why the jackpot it can be $48 millions instead $20 M.(48 states = $ 48 millions) thanks to evryone,remember this is my opinion,you guess what is going on..... Smile

                            Well, Todd is always accurate and on the Powerball game info it lists 42 states and D.C.

                            ____________________________________________________

                            justxploring,

                            Hey there!

                            Was the winning ticket one of those freebie QPs? Or a "grouper?"

                            Scared

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                            Lep

                            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
