I agree. I use to get excited, but not anymore. Now, when all those numbers match, then I will put on some music and dance my ass off. Until then, I'm cool.

I Agree!

      There are plenty of pick3 and pick4 players here that are willing to share everything they know, just check out their forums.

        Not buying a ticket for this Powerball drawing. Already bought my Hoosier Lotto tickets though. Hopefully I'll win $14,000,000.Smile

        Hope you had better luck than I do when I play the local Classic Lotto.  The odds says it's easier to get a hit but in reality it seems harder to get a hit than when I'm playing PB and MM. 

        It's at $15,000,000Big Smile so maybe I'll give it a try Monday and if I don't win, I'll still have time to pick five lines for Wednesday's PB drawing.

          3/20/2012241,000,000

          And rates were better back then.  Today, growth would be slower.

          Maybe it's the years and years of bull$hitting people by advertising annuity values, but you apparently don't recognize reality, even when it's biting you in the ass. The OP was referring to the increases after the advertised jackpot reaches $100 million, and it's extremely clear that MM blows PB out of the water.

          Here's what those increases really look like:

          MM  @ $108                PB @ $110
          + $19 million              + $17 million
          + $21 million              + $17 million
          + $23 million              + $15 million
          + $29 million              + $21 million
          + $41 million              + $31 million

          MM took 5 rolls to go from $108 million to $241 million. 5 rolls took PB from $110 to $211 million. It took a 6th roll to match MM's $241 million advertised annuity jackpot.

          Using the current ratio of cash to annuity, the actual cash (the only real yardstick) thos increases would take MM rom $82.8 million to $184.7 million. PB would go from $74 million  to $142.2 million. After that 6th roll the PB winner still got fully $20 million less than the MM winner.  As a bonus, MM did it while taking only half as much from players for each chance they were given.

              After Dpoly answers don't forget to deduct the 10.8 % to cover jersey state tax. (highest in the country)
