I got my one ticket from Big Apple store around 2:20 p.m. in the afternoon on thursday.  Hoping for the best would be happy with $40,000 or $2 million or the jackpot.  I would settle for $200 too.  Got powerplay on my ticket so good luck to me and all who play!-weshar75

Good luck weshar75!

      Saw alot more peeps buying tickets this time at the beer store. First time in a while i had to get in line. Agree with {rad242} I think it will get close to 400 if no one hits.

        No lines at the gas station today.  I was buying my one MM ticket and it took longer to get the reciept then it did to get the ticket.  I won't go anywhere near a gas station on Saturday!

          Will set US all-time record if no winner Saturday

          By Todd Northrop

          As a result of brisker than expected ticket sales, lottery officials announced today that the Powerball jackpot has been raised from $310 million to $325 million for Saturday's drawing.

          The jackpot increase immediately launched Saturday's drawing to #9 on the United States all-time biggest jackpots list.  It will be the third-largest Powerball jackpot ever.  The jackpot's $202.9 million cash option is the highest in Powerball history.

          With the new Powerball enhancements implemented in mid-January, the game has been redesigned to generate bigger jackpots and more millionaires.

          The Powerball jackpot has been growing since Dec. 28 and has rolled 13 times.

          If there is no Grand Prize winner Saturday night, the estimate for next Wednesday's drawing (Feb. 15, 2012) will be $415,000,000 — the largest lottery jackpot in United States history.

          Powerball tickets are $2 per play.

          Saturday's Powerball winning number results will be published at USA Mega (www.usamega.com) minutes after the 11:00 pm (Eastern Time) drawing takes place.

          I would like to thank everyone for their contribution because i will be the sole winner of the massive jackpot. Thanks Fellas.

              ive never had to wait in a line when there was a big jackpot, i dont know where everyoen else is shopping but its never happened to me.  on a side note, its annoying now when i try to buy powerballs and i say 10 powerballs please and the guy gives me a ticket with 5 lines and im like no... 10 lines not 10 dollars.

                I've never seen a line for tickets around here.

                  You're not the first at LP to say that, hope you are luckier than they were.

                    If I were to win a JP of this size, The best part would be listening to all the investment

                    bankers make there pitch and then tell them no thanks and hang up.  I would break

                    it up into 500K chunks and deposit it in local banks ear marked for small bussiness

                    startup loans.  Maybe keep a couple million stashed away for the grandkids and just

                    live off the interest.  I don't have a ticket yet but if it warms up some around here today

                    I might go pick one up.

                    I will consider the opinion that my winnings are a product of chance if you are willing to consider

                    they are not.  Many great discoveries come while searching for something else

                      Well I know what I will do with the money if the money Gods smile down on me. I will be able to pay my hospital and Doctor bills, as they come in and my medications, for my cancer treatment for the second time around. My husband was working last year so we were able to just scrape by and with the tax money etc  we paid in over $10 grand to hopitals , doctors and my portion of medication. So this year a lottery win would be just perfect.  But eveyone can use the money , in this economy I don't think there isn't a person unless they are a politician with a ton of money, that couldn't use a Jackpot win. But  mine would go to a good cause, for now LOL. Good Luck to all playing Power Ball tonight.

                        Yay for the bump up. Almost spent my $32 PB winnings from Wed on this draw. Have to spread it out & at different locations. I should get going before everyone starts getting their Saturday started. 

                        Good luck to LP members. May one of us win, but most of all, may it be me! $152m coming my way... White Bounce

                          1. There are no "gods" that "let you win". You are just a lucky sob if you happen to beat the odds.

                          2. Everybody has problems and bills and nobody actually gives a <snip> about yours.

                          3. Good luck all.

                          Let's see half a billion jackpot! I saw a fool ahead of me at the fuel stop dropping $400.00 dollars on this game. He is doing someone else well.
