    I just ran down and bought a $10 ticket at 9 13. I looked down at estimated jackpot and it shows $500 million. Wonder why at at 9 13 its still showing 500 mill when it was raised to 550 earlier today?

        Im from WV and our tickets show Estimated Jackpots for 3 games at bottom Poweball Mega Million and Hot Lotto I bought a ticket Sunday and it shows Powerball 425 mill and Mega Mill 49 mill. Tonight ticket shows Mega Mill 12 mill which is correct since someone hit it last night and it reset to 12 Mill. I know they upped the PB to 550 earlier today so i was just curious to why it still showing 500 instead of 550. I actually thought maybe they had sold so many tickets earlier today that it had gone to 600 mill and thought thats what it was when i first glanced at it but it shows 500 mill. No big deal i guess especially seeing how im in WV and we are always 20 years behind rest the country in most things LOL.

          Does anyone know why the powerball page, usamega, etc, never reflect the jackpot amount at the time of the drawing? When they update with a winner after midnight, it always shows the dollar amount from earlier, not the final amount which they say when powerball does the live drawing.

            I don't think you actually checked USA Mega or Lottery Post, because they were both updated to $580 million right at 10:59 pm EST when the final tally was announced.

             

            Check the State Lottery Report Card
            What grade did your lottery earn?

                  Woah, traffic jam! It appears that lots and lots of people are trying to access the site at once! Maybe it's because of the $550 MILLION Powerball jackpot?           

                              No worries though because you can still find updated winning numbers and jackpot information below.  hoosierlottery.com will return once traffic slows down.           

                              Thanks for your patience!           

                   

                  heck i couldnt even get online this is what it says LOL

                      I usually buy powerball maybe 3 times a year for one line on the ticket. I really broke my trend today. I bought one ticket with 2 lines.

                      I am really sweating it out about losing that four dollars.

                      Jack-in-the-Box

                      Whew, That was a sweater.

                      Got three white balls on one line. Made three dollars so that should about break me even on the pwerball game for the year.
