So now anyone else care to venture a guess at the final annualized jackpot for tonite and see who gets closest without going over.

KY Floyd  =510

Maximumfun =517

Technut =520

Bagent =527

Original Bey =529

        Gotta just love how the media likes to focus on the long odds of winning the jackpot. Yes you're more likely to be struck by lightning than win the jackpot. But people do get struck by lightning every year and people do win the jackpot every year.  And last time I checked, the odds of winning the jackpot are zero if you don't buy a ticket. So I'm going to improve my odds by buying a PB ticket.

        I'm always annoyed with the you're never going to win and if someone wins it's more likely to be someone else comments. That may be, but isn't that exactly what every winner is told before they win?

        I mean, you may not wake up tomorrow and find you're holding the winning ticket, but someone else might. And that person had the same chances you had at winning. There is almost zero difference between the person who wins and the people who don't.

          Already someone hating on old people. No one is more worthy than another one. And if someone has worked for their wealth and/or career, get over it.

                      And?  You seem to have an issue with old people winning.  Maybe you need to remember all this when you get older.   Why not focus on the experiences and knowledge that older people possess.

                        Hate to break it to you Jack but you have been locked up too long in that box of yours. 

                        FYI- Gloria Mackenzie the $590 million Powerball winner from Florida was not the least bit wealthy when she won. There have been plenty of winners in their 20's and 30's as well as some in their 70's and 80's. 

                        Winning a jackpot is not based on age or financial status, if you have a ticket you have a chance just like anybody else.

                            Jackie - one of the reasons " Old" people win is because we have more Old people playing. The " Old" people are living longer and enjoying life. Many have traded in Bingo for the lottery. I would rather read of Old people winning than shaking my head at reports of a " Young" winner who used his/her wealth to shove needles in their veins or powder up their noses.

                            The Old folks almost Always leave money for the generation following. Wish l could say the same for the younger crowd..

                            People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.
