I think we should ban Washington from playing Powerball!

Who is going to contribute to the next Powerball Jackpot?

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

    I do not a problem with anybody winning in any state, because they spent the money to play.

      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).

      You should be thankful to have California and Florida in multi state games.They support the big jackpots by buying the most tickets.

        That could easily happen if some of the members are as smart as they think they are when it comes to picking winning combinations.  Good Luck LP members.Big Grin Santa

          How is it a personal attack when no one mentioned you? It was a joke that took a jab at every conspiracy person who's ever ranted and raved on Lottery Post. No one was targeting you specifically because guess what, you weren't even on our minds until you posted in the thread. You need to get over yourself. Not every thing is about you. You're the one trying to make yourself the center of attention not us.

          I should have spend $176M to win that $90M Powerball lottery jackpot.

            Good for you.  I only have a problem with the  3 usual states that win too often.  Some here just can't and won't get it, that when the same places win consistently, it turns off a lot of people to play the MM or PB.  I am sure the usual ones will be along to tell me differently.

              No one in the nation came up with all five winning core numbers so even the best LP predictors had a task beyond their skills.  Better luck next time LP members. Big Grin Santa

                Thanks but if I was really that smart I would have matched 6 of 6 in Ohio's Classic Lotto by now, after all the odds of doing that are only 1 in 14 millions. Wink

                  The winner "claims" this was the first time she's ever played Powerball. I smell BS!

                    I would have said the same thing had it been me. We all know it's BS but it would be fun to hear the reaction of all the people who play everyday.

                      She doesn't look like a BS'er to me. Nothing in her body language would indicate she is shifty. I'm willing to give her the benefit of the doubt but if she started talking about selling me something, that's another story.

                      I've been playing the lottery for years and I haven't won much but I don't think it's beyond the realm of possibility someone could win the first time playing a game. 

                      It also doesn't matter if you been playing for years or if it's your first time, if you buy one ticket for a Powerball drawing your odds are the same...... 1 in 175 million.

                      Playing the Powerball for years doesn't entitle someone to anything and doesn't grant anyone better odds than someone who just started. It all comes down to luck.

                        I don't understand why you do such a thing. Lying to people to get your jollies off doesn't make sense to me. Isn't it enough joy to know you beat the odds and won millions of dollars? On top of that, you have to taunt people who play on a regular basis too?

                        When the jackpots are reset, MM at 15 mil and PB at 40 mil, it's the people who play on a consistent basis that makes the lotteries viable.

                          Didn't really mean it that way. I just find it amusing that many people get bent out of shape when they hear that it was a first timer that won a major lottery prize. I don't expect to win a jackpot in my lifetime so there will be no boasting from me but I will still occasionally play.

                              The few occasions when I actually play is only for entertainment purposes. I may have a wild dream about what I would do with all that wealth but that is where it ends.
