$70M, $60M, $70M had been won since the new game matrix went in effect. The $336M jackpot does not count since it had ticket sales from the old game matrix. Powerball is generating more jackpot winners than mega millions. Good Luck.

If I recall correctly, for the 336M Powerball jackpot, the first week or two had the original $1 dollar play, but as the jackpot kept going on, it eventually reached the date where it became $2 per play. I'd say the ticket sales were a combination of both matrixes since they were both in effect with that particular jackpot.

Anyway, I'm so happy for these guys! Only eight years of playing and they won, wow! Not too shabby. I hope they use their money wisely and live healthy and prosperous lives. Congrats to the couple! Hurray!

And ha ha, while I do wish that you didn't have to do these press conferences in all states, it's nice to see someone honest saying that even with the win they'll still play the lottery. Big Grin

    I through Todd won because the winner won in N.J and Todd from there. I think he play the lottery for 8 years. Then I found out it was not him.

      Congrats to the winners! $70m is just as good as $363m in my book. Both are more than I have, and both would make life so much easier (not simpler, but easier).  I'm still playing the PB at $2/ticket.

          The 2/25/2012 $70M  PB jackpot was won with an $8 Quick Pick Ticket. The winning combination was on the first line of the 4 lines ticket. Powerball is generating more jackpots winners than Mega millions since the new game matrix went in effect.

          Playing the lottery is a Win or Lose situation no matter how many tickets we buy. They spent $2 for a ticket and won $70M.

          Didn't realize the winner from the Feb 25 drawing came forward. Thanks for the update.

                    Yes, I meant to say that it had tickets sales from both matrices. 3 powerball jackpots of $70M New York, $60M Rhode Island, and $70M New Jersey had been won with the new game matrix. I feel that powerball has made more millionaires the way they promised.

                      Yes she did. The winner was a beautiful lady from WESTCHESTER New York. They had pictures and videos of the winning ticket online. She spent $8 for a 4 lines powerball Quick Pick Ticket and the winning combination was on the first line. Do not ask me why she spent $8 on a ticket for 4 lines instead of spending $10 for a 5 lines ticket, even though she and her husband were spending $10 weekly on MM and PB.

                      Playing the lottery is WIN or LOSE situation no matter how many tickets we buy. She bought 4 lines Quick Pick , and  she won.

                          Nice win. I hope that they have hobbies, because you need something to occupy your time.

                          Best wishes to them!

                            This has been a point I have been trying to make for a week now. Yeah, it's kool to chase $363m but one maybe two individuals at best will claim that big jackpot. I have not given up on the Powerball as an option. If they maintain this trend, Lady Luck will make her rounds to a lot more of us this year!

                              Just validates that $1000 in tickets isn't needed Smiley
