Type well the weekend just got that much more interesting

 

good luck

Yes, it has become one of those weekend when players at their work places start hastily organizing lottery pools without a plan other than to get everybody money and buy a bunch of quick picks. 

If they are lucky they won't win anything, other wise there be a lot of co-workers pissed off at each other.

      I need THRIFTY to explain his Stop Loss System one more time before I make any decisions.

      He's never around when you need him.

        I Agree! I was just sitting here wondering why he hasn't weighed in with a StarStarStarStarStar rating.

          Ridge, if I remember correctly, Thrifty's Stop Loss System went like this: he "stopped" playing so he wouldn't "lose" anymore money.  LOL

              Last time I talked with him he had spent $2. on a PB ticket and had a $4. winner. He was talking about parlay wagering the entire $4. on the next draw, but he may have saved it for the big drawing on Sat. night.

                    Well I agree with Thrifty about setting limits, but he lost me when he thought buying a house was not a good idea.

                     

                    But I was still thrifty and I had two hot lotto tickets with the HB number and one with the HB number plus one number....so I bought one more PB ticket.

                      I bought my ticket today at albertsons here in mcminnville and I was so pissed when I saw my numbers they were two lines and both lines were full of numbers below 30.  So I grit my teeth and said well maybe I can hit the powerball and get a $12 winner since I powerplayed the ticket of two lines.  Good luck to all who play tomorrow.-weshar75

                        Yes, you ought to expect that most players play numbers between 1 and 31 i.e. those are the numbers between all the months. I too am playing mine tomorrow. Here in Flagstaff, I have never seen any line beyond 5-10 people, maybe because Arizona was one of those states that had much earlier embraced the Powerball regime and in addition, there are many lotto retailers in one small area. Regardless, I will make sure I play the game before my afternoon work shift.

                          It's the weekend, the first of the month, and the jackpot is huge. I'd call it the "perfect storm".

                            " I was so pissed when I saw my numbers" 

                            What's up with that?  Don't you have the option of picking your own numbers if you don't trust the terminal to pick the ones you want?

                              A When the new powerball record was hit the prize amounts are pretty close to where they were then after 11 rollovers. Annuity is at 300 mill opposed to 270 mill then but the cash value then was 176 mill so its a little lower then that now but not by much. Last time it rolled to 364 annuity and 232 cash befor it rolled once more to the 591 annuity and 371 cash prize that was won. If it rolls Sat then it should go up to probably high 300s annuity and around 230 cash. What may boost this one a bit more is its the beginning of the month and the MM jackpot is low as opposed to being close to 200 mill last time. 2 more rolls and we will see the usual madness in buying tickets like the last time. Once you see JP get up to the high 300s or 400 or more then ticket sales really explode. While im greedy and want to hit this Sat or the following Wed if it rolls agaian if i dont hit then id like to see 2 more rollovers and the early estimate keep going up by the day as always happens when you start out advertising over 400 mill. While 173 million cash option is more then i would know what to do with I love it when they start advertising like 450 mill and within 24 hrs its already moved up 75 million or so then usually is changed agaian at least one more time befor the drawing. 2 rollovers and i figure we will be looking at a 600 million annuity JP. Would take anothe rollover after that to break the 471 cash that MM set awhile back. Let the madness begin and good luck to all.
