Due to the PB frenzy, i heard Clerks were required to take a 8 hour course to control Line Cutters. Lets see if it works.

I have been practicing cutting in line. Yesterday I cut in line and got my regular tickets and realized it didn't matter that I cut in line because no QPs were being purchased.

      Yea!! I still have the numbers you posted awhile back! I have not played in awhile though!! Guess I need to dig them back out and maybe play a set of them on Wednesday night!!!

      Nice work. Im still playing them every draw. This is an old photo but you can see line nuber 2 is the shared line that others play alone on.......

        Hey guys, I am in the back of the line and I've got to get back to the pole.  The elves are threatening to strike, the reindeer need fed, and the Ms. is having all kinds of problems with the naughty nice list, not to mention my sleigh is parked in a tow zone.  I was wondering, if you guys don't mind, if I could just...

            I would love to see a new highest jackpot ever but the way I understand it that is impossible once the jackpot gets this large because every possible combination gets played, am I right?

              So true.  You know that spot behind me has been vacant for a while and I bet I could put you in it for a little of nothing... but you'd better hurry because that can of Spam has been on the lurk and is seriously considering that very spot, and the word is getting out to the others also...  Can we go ahead and get the jump and make it happen...

                  No. As a practical matter it's virtualy impossible for every combination to be played. The more combinations they use the lower the chances of the next ticket using a combination that wasn't already used. If all combinations were generated randomly, selling 90% of the combinations would requires selling about 400 million tickets, which is well beyond the current sales record. If they did manage to sell 90%, only 1 out of every 10 sold after that would be an unused combination. Since combinations arean't all chosen randomly, the number of combinations used is soemewhat less than  from pure random selection.

                      Hey! Thanks for posting your numbers again! Could not find mine that I had copied down! Yea, the 2nd line B does look like some powerful numbers to play! Will jot these down again and put them in a safe place, so I can play them again. I might break bad and buy an extra 2 dollar ticket with line B on it only!! Have a good day and Good Luck!! Thanks for re-posting them too!!!

                          It increased by $ 100 million??? Unreal.

                          Exactly what I was thinking.

                          That was fast!!

                           

                          It's official, these $400m - $500m jackpots are going to become the norm nowYes Nod

                          I can't believe it went up that quick by that much!!
