        I'm already heated up!

        Come on $200 Million!

        Pennsylvania is due for a big winner ......... who is short like me! Cool

        Agreed, PA has been lacking in any real wins on PB or Mega, Bout time we gain some love since we are a high contributing state .

        I RARELY power up as 99% of the time when I buy five lines I get nuffin, why double the loss? Seriously If I win 200k I am okay with that, I dont live on what could have been but what is, and I is gonna win!!! Which is 66 million cash in pocket after all taxes paid!

        ~~Is it true, Is it kind,Is it necessary. ~~~

         Thanks be to the giving numbers: 1621,912,119 02014

            Harold Camping does not buy lottery tickets for two reasons.

            1. He will not be around to spend the money.

            2. His friends sent him $18 million last year. And millions more in the previous years.

              Finally the jackpot is large enough for a group play. Good luck everyone.

                YoungNRich, let me be the first to say, spending 2 grand on Powerball is not a good idea. If you are going to spend that much on a lottery, at least pick one where the reward and risk ratio makes more sense. That is, pick a lottery with a good expected value. When one spends one or two dollars on a game, it is not a big deal on which game to choose (even though you should still pick the one with the best expected value). But spending 2 grand demands more careful choice.

                My lottery groups often spend 2 grand on one draw but I always do the research and make sure we pick the right game and draw.

                Please reconsider. Not knowing which games you have to choose from, I would say off hand, pick your local state game. Even scratch offs are a better buy for you when spending 2 grand.

                Good luck in your choice.

                $2000 on a power ball drawing might not be as bad as you project.  If the powerballs are evenly distributed among 2000 picks then the winning one will hit 51 times guaranteeing $153 back.  The over odds are he will win at least 56 lower tier prizes for $219.

                5.57  3/5+0 X $7 = $39
                2.54  2/5+B X $7 = $18
                16.2  1/5+B X $4 = $65
                32.4  0/5+B X $3 = $97

                YoungNRich could even have a strategy that would guarantee him even more of his $2000 back using powerplay.  At worst his odds aren't any worst than a pool playing that amount. I'm assuming he has run some simulations of his betting strategy.

                 * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *

                    Maybe I'll play another set of numbers tomorrow. The special the NY Lottery is running (free $2 Quick Pick with a Powerball purchase of $10) ends tomorrow anyway—might as well!

                      Thanks for the heads up coolbick. I am going to try to get some New York tickets for the June 1 draw. They had the same special back in January when the jackpot was $380 million and I got $20 worth of free Powerball tickets. It is a great deal.

                            Interesting. You make that comment to rdgrnr and not thePharoah. More interesting about not violating any laws if you indeed have asked peole to send money across national bordewrs to Canada for lotto.

                            RJOh,

                            "$2000 on a power ball drawing might not be as bad as you project.  If the powerballs are evenly distributed among 2000 picks then the winning one will hit 51 times guaranteeing $153 back.  The over odds are he will win at least 56 lower tier prizes for $219."

                            Gee, I never figured you for an Enron accountant. Let's see, $219 and a whole bunch of I hope so's after a $2000 buy-in? Naw.

                            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.
