Congrats to the winner!

jj,
Now everyone here will take me seriously when I tell them to play trends and win because we will never see another drawing in our lifetimes where back to back number pairs aren't drawn....

Why does Michigan always win these big ones?  I would have much rather seen New York win.


There will be see plenty of drawings without back to back number pairs.

As for Michigan 'always' winning the big ones, well define 'always' and GET SOME HELP.

I DON'T NEED HELP! LOL

Harder matrixes will shut down back to back number pairs.

It's a known fact that it's too easy to win in Michigan.

    Test your theory jj, go play tickets in all these places where you've said 'it's too easy to win' and let us know how do.

    Scared

    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.

        This is actually a good thing. We now can know how good the new matrix is and how much money{jackpot} it can generate all by itself.

        Master, I'd like to say that I feel good that someone won (unfortunately not me) but I can't.

          Congrats to the new millionaire. Thank God it was not in the state of IL.

          Party

          That is what I was saying this morning to my husband, "Thank God it was not in the state of IL."  So the winner will get all of their money, except the share from IL.  I wonder how that is going to work.

          Congratulations to the lucky winner. May you have lots of luck and fun with it.

                  No problem, if I ever get to Michigan I'll buy tickets and collect my easy jackpot win.  Once I do, I'll ship you a bottle of the finest whatever it is you like to drink. :-)

                    Wednesday, 7 OCT 15 is when the Matrix changes.  Still costs $2 or $3 with Powerplay option.

                      Hype balloon = DEFLATED

                      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?

                        Golfer, I thought I was the only one who felt that way.  I am or will try to be happy for whomever won but so disappointed it wasnt me.

                        Such a letdown, I had it all planned what I was going to do with it.  I have an agreement to split it three ways and I am true to my word.  With such a huge jackpot $42 mil. net each is still a tremendous amount to win.  The lower jackpots are more to my liking but the odds are so astronomical on MM and now PB will be about the same not sure if I will continue playing. I most often had one ticket for each draw as that is all it takes but now I will be looking at the odds and wonder why even try. The same result that someone always wins and beats the tremendous odds, why not me, is what keeps me in the game. 

                        Oh, and congratulations to the winner.  Hope someone who truly needed it won and that they do good things with it.  I'm trying!

                              It is more than that. I am looking for the exact amount.
