          With the problems there having down there right now, this may end up like the guy in Oregon who left his ticket on the refrigerator. I hope not.What?

              Hopefully the powerball or mega millions has consecutive drawings without a winner til 12/24 that would be the best christmas ever!

                It'd be interesting if the 18 year old is in NYC occupying Wall Street demanding that the rich give their money to the lazy.

                If he is, I'm going to go beat a drum in front of his house all night and demand he give me some money.

                  Congrats to the winner. They also made lottery history as that's the last time $1 will have won that much since the tickets are going up in January and theree's no way the jackpot will have grown near $254 million.

                  It sure sounds like a player is far better off throwin another dollar at the Powerplay or Megaplier than another line of numbers.

                  From the OP:

                  Just missing, by failing to match only the Powerball, were tickets in a dozen states. One in Arkansas is worth $1 million for matching five numbers while having the Power Play multiplier option. Winning $200,000 were four Florida tickets, three each in New York and Illinois, two in Ohio, and one each in Georgia, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Missouri, New Mexico, and Wisconsin.

                  Bet those who hit 5 + 0 for $1 are kicking themselves. Nice to win $200,000 but that other dollar they didn't play on PP or MP was worth another $800,000.

                  Bang Head

                  The roll started on 9/17 and took six and a half weeks to reach $254 million. Six and a half weeks from tonight is 12/21, and there will still be 3 more drawings before the end of the year. Of course it's unlikely, but we could see a jackpot even bigger than this on Christmas eve. If it rolls until 12/31 we'll see the first  $400 million jackpot advertisement before the year ends. The current cash value ratio for PB is about the same as for the 390 million MM jackpot of 2007, so PB would also set a new cash value record if it gets a bit past $390 million by the end of the year.

                    Neither me nor my lottery club won it, oh well, keep trying.

                    However, I'm setting my sights on MegaMillions with ticket sales less than 2 weeks away(November 16).  I want to be the first big MegaMillions winner in Louisiana.  I've put it to a vote with the lottery club at work and so far, they are all interested in us playing MegaMillions in addition to Powerball and Louisiana Lotto.

                    Wish us luck.

                        I pray for the person who won the powerball jackpot amounting to 254.2 million and lost the ticket. I hope he finds the ticket before the time is up or else...may I just say...Bang HeadLOL

                          Exactly! Every year Mega Millions and Powerball hits right around this time and then ticket sales start to get crazy right before Christmas. Another jackpot won't probably hit until a few days before Christmas or a few weeks after the New Years as it always do.


                          Sometimes makes me wonder if the Lottery has control over when they want these jackpots to hit.


                          Just seems to be too much of a coincidence to me.Confusedc

                          Yeah I have been saying for years that I am skeptical about the large jackpot lotteries, I would not doubt that some type of scamming is going on, otherwise why are most of the jackpots always won right before breaking records? Maybe because a lot more are playing them, but it still seems fishy and happens atr the exact time every time. We never see it go up to $500 million and beyond. I won't believe in it until I see a win personally or know someone who wins. But I still am skeptical about the drawing process and winner determination.

                            I spent $1,000 on ticket and all i won in return was $220. I should have kept my money. damm man the lottery is a rip off

                            How long does it take for a machine to kick out that many tickets?

                              Im happy for whomever the winner(s) are.  However, I cant get but so happy about Conn. being the state.  That is Hedge Fund Capital USA, and I know many of those fat cat wall streeters with their million dollar annual bonuses play the lottery also, which is their right.  But I dont even want to think about a multi-millionaire winning a Jackpot that big!   But hey, I'll keep trying, my boat will come in soon.

                              I posted this a month ago today.  It turned out I was right about this.  Only if I could be right about picking my winning numbers.
