ummmmm  no...lol   And I just realized I did not even look at the fortune...just the numbers....

A wise choice. Why share the jackpot with the hundreds of others, who might possibly run out to play that lucky fortune cookie number tonight.  Wink

        I'm thinking to buy 1-2-3-4-5   6

         

        After spending nights on calculations, decided this one will do.

            I'll be happy to share the jackpot and to prove it I'll be posting the 10 lines I'm playing on the prediction board as soon as I return from buying them. Wink

              But the cutoff time for posting is at noon every day RJ. How will you be posting your PB numbers on the board this late in the day, unless your talking

              about the drawing for Wednesday. What?

                Haven't you read the rules on the prediction board? What?  You can post for any game up to an hour before its drawing which means I have until 10:00 PM EST to post PB numbers.

                  I really hope someone wins Powerball tonight and the jackpot gets reset cause right now Mega Millions is getting neglected.

                    I noticed tickets sales were down a couple of millions from the last time its jackpot was at the same level so I must not be the only one who switched over to PB.

                      OK I see where I was confused. I post only all states, which does require you to post by noon. But since your posting for just your state, that

                       deadline wouldn't apply. I stand corrected. Thanks for the lesson!  Cheers

                       

                      Look forward to your numbers being posted!

                            So if I decided to play the combination 3-7-11-15-28 Powerball: 12 for tonight's drawing, I have an equal chance of winning as if I decided to play another set of numbers? Some how, I really doubt it.

                            One things for sure, if 3-7-11-15-28 Powerball: 12 is drawn tonight, there is going to be an angry mob outside of the Powerball office because something aint right.

                              Yup, same chances. Despite the angry mobs, the numbers don't pay that much attention to what people think anyways!   Jester Laugh

                              You could play the winning number for this evenings PB, and you would still have the same odds and equal chance, of that number being drawn

                              again on Wednesday. That's just  mathematics and probability at work. And they work 24/7, even while we  Bed.
