That Power Play  makes a huge difference when you match 5 + 0 especially knowing that they'll tax that win to the bone. PB is becoming a winners game and I'm hoping they don't change it. MM isn't churning out millionaires every week Chair

That money's gone fo ever

            I think we should ban Washington from playing Powerball!

                I see the usual ones are being asses.  I have no problem with a state that gets its first jackpot win.

                  That was uncalled for.

                  Nobody mentioned you.

                    Hey, I'm happy it wasn't from California or Florida.

                    But congratulations to the winner, and I hope they invest it wisely, and be careful with their spending (i.e. not go hog-wild and buy a lear jet or something ridiculous like that).

                      Interesting statement coming from you...in the past you insisted it was 'always' California and when directed to the winners galleries on the PB and MM website you claimed they were lies.

                      Consistency is not your forte.

                      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners. 

                      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.
