  Aww, lucky winner(s). I know so many wish that they won instead. However, it is the luck of the draw. I wish I had won the jackpot, times are tough but oh well, keep on pushing. Congratulations to the winner(s), once again.

    The game is going to undergo a long, slow death.

    The troubles began for both MM and PB when the $2 Powerball ticket was introduced.    This moderately raised PB revenues (but probably not profit) at the expense of MM revenues.   They then made matters worse by reducing the value of MM, and finally they reduced the value of the $2 PB.

    They may try other fixes, all of which, as is typical, will be in the wrong direction, but both games will slowly decline despite anything they do.

      Hey, Golfer1960,

      Do you happen to know what the taxes are on that place ?

      Likely less than we pay on our houses.

        I believe you are correct.

              Nice house for a non-lottery winner. Too rural looking and dated for my taste though.

                I think they should leave the odds as is and go back down to a dollar per play. Starting jackpots will have to go down as well. We will eventually see at least a $700+ million jackpot.

                May the balls bounce in your favor!

                  They should have left the games alone and stop tinkering with it.  Powerball was much more fun to play when it only cost $1 and I was more likely to spend more money to play multiple tickets when it cost less vs now the $2 where I might only buy one or two for larger jackpots over 150m.

                   

                  We don't need to see near billion dollar jackpots for powerball/mega million. When those two games get to 200-300 million nobody gets excited anymore.  Change the games back to how it originally was.

                  I'd rather see a new global game created where Billion dollar jackpot games can be reached.... let the jackpots start at $100 million and max out at a billion....tax free.

                    Tax free.. Sounds like a plan.

                      What if, just what if this 2nd jackpot was won by none other than Ridge?

                        I am not one of those who doesnt get excited lol.  I never pay attention to the fluff amounts, only the net and almost at any point I could live very comfortably on it.  TAX FREE, now you are talking but I highly doubt that will EVER happen, not with the political crooks and/or government agencies who have access.  Oh and change it back to a buck.

                          That would be great if it was RDGRNR who won.  But then there is no chance we would ever hear from him lol.

                            I thought they should have made the new matrix 6/59-1/35 instead of the current 5/69-1/26.

                              anyone heard from him. haven't seen one of his posts for a couple of years. could it be he went to that final resting place up in the hills. we need a ridge fix on things.
