       My cousin's husband makes millions of dollars every year by investing in promising new companies. I guess I know where to put some part of my winning. :)

         Computers can't be fully random. They don't like random number generations and they can't.

        That is why there's what many called "a formula" being used to ensure 'NEW' random numbers will keep on continuing to be produced and that no repeats from past drawings will ever be re-drawn again. If all combination has been drawn, the lottery can easily remove one number from an option, just like they done with the PB recently, to ensure 'NEW' random numbers will keep on being produced.

         

        Anyway, definitely, good luck to all playing MB and PB this week!... I'll wait till either one reaching at least $250 mil to play, but, definitely best of luck to all who is playing it this week! Have fun! Dance

                I say.. 40..65.. 95.. 130.. .175.. 230.. 300.. 380.. 465.. 550
                (if it were to go that high obviously)

                I was beyond wrong on this.. Didn't think about a lot of people only playing when the jackpot gets very large..  2 numbers that I always play tho have been drawn the past two times... now a little concerned about this :-/

                    It was on my way home from a Doctor appointment ............... and I have wanted to own a Bentley/Rolls since about 1963. It is a pleasant diversion from the drugery of everyday life. If you haven't seen a newer model Bentley "in person", you cannot understand the difference between Bentleys & a "regular" automobile. When I opened the door to go into the showroom, I was met with the aroma of an old world leather shop. These automobiles are works of art!

                      Nice car. When I was in England back in 98, I saw a couple. One of them had a chauffeur waiting right beside the car.

                        The state lotteries predictably increase the odds against lottery players in order to raise massive jackpots whichwas capped at around £180+ million

                        The euromillions odd in Europe have gone up from 1/80m to 113m.Additionally, they raised the prize of tickets prior to that.

                        I stopped playing it and just settled for the main lotto. I will be more than happy with £1 million jackpot and £185 million will just make crazy.

                        Suspiciousness is one way of saying that one do not want to know the truth. It is the best way to keep the mind empty and the spirit restless.

                              So much for these huge jumps in the amount when the Powerball rolls over.   Ten million last drawing, ten million this drawing.   I think the hangover of a huge pot and tons of people playing will take it's toll.   I wish they would just go back to making it one dollar to play or if you really wanted to make a difference then they should have made it five bucks per ticket to ensure it grew twenty million for each non jackpot winning drawing.
