Why did you wait so long? PowerBall drawings have been going on over twenty years.

Because I did'nt know how to play, but now I do.

      Most people think you don't have know much to play, you just ask for a quick pick.  It's knowing how to win that's confusing and many at LP have their theories about how to do that.

        My recently bought two QPs plus a self pick I have for tonight's draw all have 28 for the powerball.  Weird.  But okay...come on, 28.

          You are correct about the split, however I'm holding the winner,

           and your ticket has none of the #s ha-ha

           I did notice you took the powerplay WTG.

          Than a big congrat's is in order haymaker!  Party

          I take PP occasionally, when the spirit moves me. My thoughts were, what if a score a 4+1, or better yet a 5+0 2-nite. That extra dollar would be

          a no brainer of course.  Idea

             I heard that California will join PB during it's current fiscical year, 2012~2013.

             Honestly, I am against flauting wealth no matter what. It's just me or the environment that I was grew up in. Even if I become a single winner of a $320 millions I would choose to buy a Toyota Sienna and live in a townhouse in Culver City.

            yeah right lol

              election day would be the best time to claim if you want less publicity because the news is not going to be talking about powerball.

                6,8,16,17,20,22,23,24,35,37,42,43,49,53,54,57,58,59

                Any of these numbers will show up in tonight's drawing and that is a factWink.

                And what are your predictions for powerball?  However, it doesn't matter. Here is what you have to do, if you are so certain:

                 

                To match 5 white balls, your numbers can produce 8568 possible combinations, so if you invest $17,000 tonight, you are going to be a millionere. Don't forget to add powerplay to hit 2 millions.

                 

                Good luck and tell us how it went.

                  Great idea! Good luck to you on tonight's draw.

                  And good luck to all here at LP.

                      Imagine, it will turn the other way around? Because everybody would hate those 3 asset managers?

                       

                      One way or another people would be looking at someone who got away with their money, either president or PP winner.

                        Lots of people who never won a lottery jackpot have a nice home and a nice luxury car.   Having these things wouldn't be flaunting your wealth if you lived in a neighborhood where others had the same things.

                          what about getting the most?

                          the craziness is unavoidable to a fair extent... unless you're in a metro city, local press is still going to be all over it and likely more than a few blogs or twitter feeds, and just word of mouth at the local shop.

                          I think, personally, I'd rather capitalize on it. It's bound to be good for someone's business or other interests - collecting it with a fashionable coat of many sponsors. additional change to send off for charity. Or confusing the public and hiding behind someone's storefront (goodwill or being vindictive - flooding them with public interest).

                          Or maybe just to utilize it for the burning soap box it could be... I know I've got more than a few words for my local/state/national representatives and a fair amount of them could easily tie into the various things I'd do if I did win.

                          In the end, you are exactly--what you are. Put on a wig with a million curls, put the highest heeled boots on your feet, yet you remain in the end just what you are. - Mephistopheles

                            you'd hold off claiming millions of dollars for almost 4 months? Where would you store the winning ticket? How would you get any sleep from now until November 6th? Something might happen to the ticket while you're waiting to turn it in to the lottery officials.
