        Good job Ronnie. After I saw your post earlier I had a feeling that would hit.

         

        Why though is the 0+1 prize the same as 1+1? This is the first I've checked out the Powerball payouts. I'm as confused as I was the first time I saw the California payout system.

          It was won in Virgina.  I said it wasn't going to roll over. Someone or many folks got extremly lucky last night. I'm postive it probably wasn't Jack. Jester

           It would great to be one of the lucky few who knows what it feels like to win millions. I don't think the raising it to 2 dollars was worth. Most of the same states that always won in past are still winning most of the jackpots after the price increase.Evil Looking

            If you go back and look its taking about the same amount of draws to get past $100,000,000 starting from $40,000,000 at $2, as it did starting from $20,000,000 for a measly $1

                  I Agree! I was confused when I realized that 3+1 is only a $100 pay out. But that's how they structure it.

                      Yep.  The consumer will never notice that the pay-outs have drastically decreased due to the restructuring.  The real winner is the lottery itself.  I am not saying to stop playing because there is the chance for the big win, but the smaller prizes have constraints on them now.  It is interesting that when the PB doubled in price sales drastically dropped, however because of the doubling of price revenue actually increased.  But I agree it is a slap in the face to say the payout is the same for hitting the PB as hitting the PB plus one number.  What moron came up with that idea... better yet what board approved it?  Drop the payout of hitting the PB to $3 and put the PB+1 at $5.  At least it looks fair that way.

                          There's somebody in Virginia who might disagree.

                              There's a place for Predictions available on the blue bar up top if that's what you're looking for.

                              Just mash down on "Predictions".

                              Good luck.
