              I am not hatin' but I am sure glad no one hit Powerball last night.  I had been swamped with work all day and it was around 8:30 PM when I finally got around to heading to my nearby convenience store of choice to buy my tickets.  Well, I bought two plays for Powerball, a QP and a self-pick and I only checked that the game and numbers were correct.  And I saw the date, but I had completely lost track of which day it was!  Also bought a Lotto ticket since the jackpot for that game is significant (over $20 million).  And so I thought I was covered for last night's drawings.  WRONG!!!  When I rechecked my tickets this afternoon, I realized that my Powerball tickets were for the Saturday drawing vice the Wednesday drawing.  I am still stuck in the time when 9PM marked the cutoff time for both Powerball, Mega Millions, and Lotto.  I totally forgot Powerball cutoff is 8:30PM.  So that is the only reason I was glad no one won since I didn't have a play in for Powerball after all.  I won't make that mistake again!!!

              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!

                Yeah but you Californians have been winning Mega Millions on a frequent basis like the folks in Indiana and New York have both been winning Powerball and Mega Millions...so no sympathy here.  We Illinoians pay in but rarely win the big one.No Pity!

                  In Ohio, all games except PowerBall can be played up to 15 min before its drawing.  MegaMillion can be played up to 10:45 PM EST on drawing night but PowerBall can only be played up to 10:00 PM EST on drawing night, so you have to remember which game you're playing.

                          you ever think, if you bought a quick pick before the 8:30PM cutoff, you would have been the one and only Powerball winner for that draw?

                            Grab me two tickets with the power play. I would be happy with just the million.
