    lol - I believe that the j/p 1st ticket sold in RI was bought by a non-Rhodie... so it stands to reason that there needs to REALLY be 2 Rhodie winners... and since there were already 2 Rhodie tickets sold... the 2nd Rhodie winner needs to purchase their ticket NOT in Rhode Island. (its the balance thing... right now it is HORRIBLY unbalanced - (2 winners / only 1 instater won).

    NH is a lovely state... but I hear tell that IN and TN both are wanting winners as well.  Stretch

    I get the balancing, equilibrium, yin yang and karma thing. I'm sure IN and TN are swell states, but just "wanting" to be winners is not always enough.

    But I do wish them the best of luck, could be they may wind up with dozens of second prizes!!!   Cheers

      I was reading a few pages back, and someone mentioned about a possible increase. So I said, let me just check real quick and see if they increased it, then BAM! 540 million!! Banana


      This is too perfect.

        Very much so ;-) we didn't have a 5 number winner on the last draw coz they were saving it all for the big draw.. lol.. been meditating and I've seen the numbers match my ticket.. so therefore it has to happen, yes?!

        I wish I may, I wish I might...
                   Win the Powerball jackpot THIS big night!!!

          Isn't it? Expect another increase later today, tomorrow. The MM CEO's are slick marketing people, just the hint of another increase will spike their

          sales yet again...and they know it!

              If I hit the jackpot Id be in the Lotto Offices on Monday, then Ill be chartering a plane out of the county on Tuesday. I have an undisclosed location out of the country that will give me plenty of time to figure stuff out without being hounded.

               

              Remember the ticket is only a piece of paper and until you turn it in its worth nothing. I cannot believe nobody has thought about the sheer amount of paranoia of holding a 540 million dollar ticket. I mean even in a safe or a saftey deposit box, I would be sooooooo paranoid that something would happen to it. Once its turned in it would take that weight off my shoulders.

                A P/R week made in heaven.  Could NOT be better.  except... unless... the draws happen Friday night (drawing my rocker closer to the crackling-fire); 2 winners... no 3 winners are chosen... then next Wednesday there is announced that one of the tickets has been INVALIDATED as someone messed around with the machine that printed it... so now then everything is in flux... were there 2 or 3 winning tickets purchased?

                            To my knowledge they are all closed weekends and holidays. Monday would be good!

                              Lotto offices are 4 hours away, guess I would drive down sat and hole myself up in a hotel with the blinds closed all weekend
