Unbelievable. They must be scratching their heads at the lotto head quarters.

Yup.  Yes Nod

    Mega Millions had a winner tonight too. Both games reset in the same week. What a bummer. It'll be a while before we see big numbers in either game. *sigh*

    I got my tickets for tonight's Powerball drawing. I'll gladly settle for the base $40 million annuity or $14.1 million cash after 39.6% federal taxes.

        Mega millions and Powerball small prizes are too hard to win. Small wins keep you in the game. They need to change the matrices again. I would quit playing any lottery game, where I can't win small prizes to keep me playing. The starting jackpot levels are not doing any good, it takes forever to reach $200 million.

          You're probably right. Last wednesday was the first time our work pool played in months.

          Mega millions and Powerball starting jackpots are too low relative to the odds of winning. Lottery players are not stupid, they are not playing like they used to because of it.

            I don't want to rain on your parade, but Chris is gunna want 10.8% also.

            Just the same I agree and would gladly settle for that net,

            or even the 7 mils. net from the state's pic6 game.

                Why not? The Dragon Lady picks the lottery winners. LOL

                    Thanks everybody but Knoxville is the Wild Wild West from where I'm at back up in here.

                    It was probably some New York City Banker who came down to foreclose on some widow's houses or something like that.

                    You will win a lottery jackpot soon.Todd and the lottery post community will be very happy for you. Go and buy some tickets.

                      I thought that lottery winnings were tax free in New Jersey.

                            Cheers I do believe the Motor City or just Michigan in general will be the next big MM and or PB winning state.

                            You can do anything if you put your mind into it. The sky is the limit! Cool

                              No, 10.8% the highest in the country.
