I went to buy my $2 Powerball Quick Pick Ticket this morning, and I was given a $1 Mega Millions Quick Pick Ticket instead.

    Don't go to the dark side, my friend.

    It's a whited sepulchre full of dead men's bones and all uncleanness.

    LOTTERY GODS?

    THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST IS 666. THE LOTTERY IS CONTROLLED BY SATAN.

    I GOT A $10 POWERBALL TICKET WITH THE DEVIL'S NUMBER 666. LOL



    THE LOTTERY IS CURSED ( LOTTO DEATH CURSE ). LOL

      I don't have a PhD, but I certainly would love to move up in the world.  I know a lot of people want to work for a living I'd rather win a bunch of money and invest back in myself and the country.

        Winning the lottery is great, but we can't rely on the lottery to help the economy.

          "Saturday was the 13th consecutive drawing without a jackpot winner.  The jackpot run started December 28 as a $40 million jackpot."

          It took a long time to reach $284 Million. I have not seen a Powerball lottery jackpot frenzy yet. Why?

            The average number of sales per draw this run has only been about ~18,100,000 tickets. Compare that to a previous 11-draw run to $312M with average per-draw sales of ~25,550,000 tickets. That one was immediately preceeded by a 12-draw run to $300M with average per-draw sales of ~24,600,000 tickets. Even if the next draw in this run nets 50,000,000 in ticket sales, the average will only just be under 20,400,000 tickets per draw.

            The snowstorms may have something to do with it, and people are probably still recovering from the shock of their Christmas credit card bills Dead LOL

            If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
            If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

            2016: -48.28% (13 tickets) ||
            P&L % = Total Win($)/Total Wager($) - 1

              The weather has something to do with it because we had a foot of snow here in oregon and people are staying inside not going out unless they have too.  Plus alot of people across the u.s. have bad weather conditions so maybe that is affecting sales of lotto.-weshar75

                Hey Thrifty, you might need to get another PB ticket for Weds drawing because that one expired on 8/14/13. LOL

                  It seems like the frenzy starts at a higher jackpot than the previous frenzy each time.

                  $100M used to do it, now that's hardly noticed.

                  Now it's closer to $300M.

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

                  Lep

                  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.

                        $2 ticket price makes up for Powerball LOW PLAYERSHIP. Forget about the weather, lottery players are not spending BIG MONEY on these elusive BIG JACKPOTS.

                          SELLING LOTTERY TICKETS THROUGH THE INTERNET IS A GREAT SOLUTION. Illinois lottery sells lottery tickets online to its residents. Illinois residents are also able to buy lottery tickets using a MOBILE APPLICATION.
