That is exactly what I have been saying.I just find it odd how with all the people and num ber combinations that are played these jps are still rolling. The more they let the lottery roll over the more tickets people play which means the more money for the government once they decide to let a certain set of numbers from the geographical area they choose.they can determine what numbers to hit based on what numbers what played weather qp or player picked. They know what numbers have been played especially if they are played on a regular basis.

    That sounds good (to all the conspiracy theorists out there), but last time I checked, the MegaMillions and Powerball drawings are air-blown ball drawings.  Although I don't watch the live televised drawing, I do click on the link to watch the drawings from the website.  I am not going to use my brain cells to entertain this conspiracy theory, so would someone whose brain is preoccupied with conspiracy theories please explain to me (like I am a fifth grader) how the government can determine a  certain set of numbers from a geographical area of their choice and discriminate between QP or player picked numbers.  From what I understand about the drawing process, they perform several test drawings to ensure that the balls drawn are "random".  I am certain that it would raise a lot of red flags if a certain set of numbers consistently popped up during the test...so please explain this precision of number picking the government is supposedly orchestrating with each lottery drawing.  If you are talking about RNG, I am not a computer whiz and I know that there have been some issues with that process (I feel for you Tennessee, Indiana, etc), but RNG is not used for the jackpot MegaMillions or Powerball games.

    Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

    The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

               the jackpot might as well be $1 billion,  and because i don't reside in desperation land,  it's still ....

                           ONLY 1 QP

         (and trust me,  i HAVE enough financial / health reasons TO act "desperate",  if i wanted to.  ....  i refuse to ! )

                  people that are in a position of strength in life never have to act desperate ....1st vision 6:33

                  "i am .........."meant to"       

      P.S.,  that RJoH  is a stand up guy.  thanks,  vision

               until further notice,  it's  france everyday

          My first comment on Lottery Post! How's everybody doing? Been playing the big jackpot games Mega Millions and Powerball since a few drawings right before Powerball came to NJ (hope that makes sense)! 

          Good luck everyone and I hope someone shares the good news on Lottery Post when they win it all!

          Welcome Crazy, I think you're gonna fit right in!

            I checked my tickets and it turns out I won $3 in the last game.  Whoopee freakin do, I guess. :P

            Will probably invest that $3 into this game and see if my luck increases.

                "The cash value — the most important factor for many jackpot-watchers — stands at a staggering $155.7 million."

                 

                That cash value won't be the only thing staggering when I win.

                (Actually, I'd probably be staggering anyway but it's nice to have a valid excuse for a change)
