And interesting to me if you divide the 5.6 billion tickets sold by the 29 jackpot winners over that period you get 193.1 million tickets sold per winner, right where the odds say it should be.

The numbers do not lie, unlike some of our two legged species.  LOL

    Congrats to the lucky winner,

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

      welcome to LP maxamillion.

      maybe line c was blank on his bet slip.

      so the mach. skipped over it.

      Thanks for the welcome, haymaker.

      Your explanation makes sense.

      It's always interesting to see an actual winning ticket (or an enlarged copy of one) and since this article about Brad Duke was focused on his winning ticket I wanted to see it.

      And then to see the unusual labeling of the lines, especially on a really big jackpot winning ticket was reallly wierd.

      Thanks again for the welcome and response.

        $3,442,221 in PP sales

        Non jackpot Prizes won:  $9,180,590.00
        Million Dollar Winners   :  5  (Ga  FL  IA  IL  OH )

            If spending the extra dollar for power play is a sign of a true believer then there has only been a couple of true believers to match 5+0 since the matrix changed.

            We have members buying the minimum one ticket who believe they will win and some even expect to win. When they don't win, the reason is "their time will come". IMHO I'd give more credibility to those who chose to get the maximum out of playing the same set of numbers.

            I have no problem with positive thinking; just wondering if some players can't make the distinction between that and wishful thinking.

              Sure, if all your tickets were winners but don't forget about the 17,986,045 tickets that won nothing.  If there was a scheme to buy that many tickets and win $693,000 for sure, someone would have done it.

                Excluding pools, which would skew the data, it would be very interesting to find out how many lines of numbers individual jackpot winners played.

                I'm thinking the average 5 + 1 jackpot game sale is one line of numbers, and obviously, a QP, which the websites tell us are 70% of sales and jp winners.

                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.

                  Just a little friendly ribbin' RJOh, to CDanaT's coming up with the $6.93 average winning per ticket.

                  Obviously to buy even more than a half dozen tickets doesn't guarantee anything; except $12 less in your pocket.     Scared

                    Another white person wins a huge 200mm+ jackpot.
                    And from Idaho, one of the most racist/whitest places in the country.
                    Shocking...

                    Tell me again how all the big winners aren't white...

                    And we are still waiting to see the latest winner from Newport RI
                    who is probably white also.
                    No No

Just let us all come to an agreement and consider that a mind not willing to accept certain things, will NOT be persuaded even if you slap them on the forehead with FACTS!
