$200 Million........Gotta believe in winning and karma, even if its a little bit. I don't know about any of the folks on LP, but I play because I think positively about winning, see the articles,enjoy the stories, have friends or know someone who has won or maybe won some nice $$ myself from time to time....Besides I believe its called and refered to as "the power of positive thinking"..... but I could be wrong , just like some ticket I will purchase in the future wont have any of the right numbers....Then again, I think it just might !!!   Approve
      Someone's gotta win...Why not me or one of us from LP...Stay Thirsty..OOPS.. Stay Positive My Friends

Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

      I DO PLAN to WIN the Powerball.I only play when its over 100 million dollars.I can't afford to throw $2 at it twice a week when its a smaller jackpot.It has to do with simple economics.$2 is two freaking much to pay twice a week.If they would have made the odds twice as good I wouldn't mind paying $2 for a ticket,but they didn't.GET IT NOW?

      Yes Cletu$2, I get why you don't play at lower prize levels. My point is that playing at any prize level or lottery involves the same process. Whether you win "only" $20 million or $200,000.000 million you need to go out on a limb, risk, play a hunch, go for your dreams regardless of perceived barriers.

       

      There is no 'right' way of achieving your goals. Everyone has a different perception of what is realizing their dreams. But do not penalize someone because they are willing to spend an additional $1 to do so. There are far to many disappointed lottery players that have been frustrated over meager winnings even after playing for decades; but thousands more who have fantastic success stories.

      Obviously for you, $2 twice a week is not worthy of your risk level. For the millions of others who decide to go for it, there will be many more millionaires being made starting this Saturday.HyperHyperHyper

        Yup, this sums it up right here. Check out that guy from Cali. who visited his family in New York, Long Island, and played $26 on quick picks for the Mega Milllions. Just his luck, he won that great Jackpot of $208 million. Talk about spending money. Thumbs Up

            I think the powerball is being greedy now they said their would be more winners since the tickets are now $2 but when the jackpot is high their should be alot of winners.

            I don't understand why they went up on the tickets if they are only giving the jackpot to 1 person or letting winners win in only certain states like, CALIFORNIA & NEW YORK.

              Hey winwi5,

              The state-wide lottery does not choose winners, wheter you live in NY or Cali; you win based on the matching drawn winning numbers on your ticket. Also, they don't give just one person the jackpot. For example, if you and me won the big Jackpot of $200 million, we'll have to share that equally. 

              The poweball isn't being greddy either.

                Jackpot is very seldom won by more that one ticket holder. Here's a list of the winners respective states that have sold the jackpot ticket:
                2011 ------- MD, PA, CT, GA, MD, MN, GA, MA, NY, IN, IN, FL, NY
                2010 ------- NY, IL shared with KY, AZ, MI, FL, GA, WV, LA, FL, MT shared with OH, MO, NJ, NC, AK
                2009 ------- KY, OK, KS, WI, FL, SC, CT, NC, SD, DC, DE shared with PA, IN

                 Of the past winners only 3 of 42 were from NY, Powerball isn't played in CA.....FL has had 4

                  This game is rigged. I chose the white  ball 8 and red ball 35  for 5 tickets for a 10 dollars , and I couldn't get nothing more. My total prize was 20 dollars

                   

                  8 (quick pick) (quick Pick) (quick pick) (quick pick)  35

                  8                                                                            35

                  8                                                                            35

                  8                                                                            35

                  8                                                                            35

                   

                  Even when you are certain those numbes are coming and you choose them, they manage to rigge it. I chose white ball 8  because it haven't come in like 5 months and I chose the red ball 35 because the last time it came was in 2010.

                  They choose the location of the winner.

                  They rigged and ch0ose their winner.

                    The game isn't rigged.The odds are astronomical against winning,though.

Eventually there is a winner and I haven't heard of the same winner twice on the Powerball Jackpot or from the same family. I swear I have the right numbers for this weekends drawing so it can't be rigged.    Big Smile

                          The game is not rigged. The scrutiny of a multi-billion dollar lottery system has many checks and balances from all fifty states and federal oversight.

                          The formula for the quick picks is obviously a kept secret.  There is no rhyme or reason for how certain #'s come up. That is because they are randomly drawn. Because you were not happy with the results, don't blame it on the system.

                          As an example, I have tracked pick "3" numbers in my state that have not been drawn in 2+ years. They were obviously due to come up and I played them for several months....to no avail????      Crying

                            Even when you are certain those numbes are coming and you choose them, they manage to rigge it. I chose white ball 8  because it haven't come in like 5 months and I chose the red ball 35 because the last time it came was in 2010.

                            They choose the location of the winner.

                            They rigged and ch0ose their winner.

                            OH BROTHER! Crazy

                            Be happy you won $20.

                            CAN'T WIN IF YOU'RE NOT IN

                            A DOLLAR AND A DREAM (OR $2)
