I guess where using a new form of lotto math where twice means 'always'.

By some of the posts in this thread you would think that just playing in Eye-oh-way is an automatic jackpot winner.

Oh the unwarranted envy.

Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

      I agree with you, Lottery does control the winning numbers. I've seen it displayed with the pick 3, 4 & 5.

      It is sad, the rich get richer and the poor gets poorer.

            The lottery biggest secret is the fact that they pick all the winning combinations. lol

            I wonder if they will pick 1-2-3-4-5-6 someday. lol

                Hi Thrifty, See Ya!well i never had a QP Win anything yet Green laugh

                i think the Mega is 21. Million,, that would be a good win right??Yes Nod

                so the winner would get about 9 Million after taxes, 

                left with about 1 Million after the people come for handouts Wink

                  I agree with you, but spending $10 for a free $2 ticket makes more sense. The fact is that a the $14M jackpot was won with a $2 free play.

                          Powerball jackpots build up so fast that there is no need to envy anyone. There is a need of money to play these lottery games. The powerball jackpot will be $100M within 6 drawings. Get your money ready.

                          I forgot that $40M is a life changing amount. Wow, do we have a break with powerball? Dream on America. Let me go and buy a $2 powerball ticket in order to have a chance at $40M.

                          Should I start playing at $50M, $60M, $70M, $80M, $90M or $100M? They are all life changing amounts for $2.

                            I think Tennessee is due for another Powerball winner soon. We have only had the 1 so far. What gets me is all the people that talk about winning the lottery and never buy a ticket. I have a lot of friends that say it all the time and I tell them you can't win if you don't buy a ticket. It's not likely they are going to show up at your house,work,etc and say you won. Get off your bottom and go buy a ticket. If you don't win then at least you helped put someone's child thru college.

                             

                            Good luck to the winner and future winners!!!
