The Powerball is about useless to play now unless there is a really big jackpot. Just greed. Both the MegaMillions and Poweball are pretty useless now. 

I would not mind a $million hit myself.  Guess useless is relative.

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

      Banana .......

      Would have been nice if it was Ridge but he lives near Knoxville. Antioch according to Google maps is just south of Nashville and is close to 3 hours away from Ridge's area(unless he moved).

        Maybe to you, but I can retire just fine on $24.9 million. Even after taxes.

        And it would be perfect now because the attention is on finding out who won Wednesday. No one cares about someone winning $24 million.

        I think he's referring to the fact that these games are now a joke because it's way too easy for winners to win.  Winners are making a mockery of both games and bankrupting them.  I guarantee when these winners win and go get their picture taken with their check they are laughing to themselves thinking "We just screwed these chumps out of millions!"

        These games should use my 5 + 1 format with computerized draws and a matrix of 9,999,999,999 white balls and 9,999,999 red/yellow balls.  This would make the games actually HARD.

          Point well taken Drenick1- except you forgetting one thing, with Ridge not being here or confined to his Mountain Retreat- he now has the liberty to roam the vast outdoors. Traveling 3 hours within the State of Tennessee in any direction is a piece of cake.You don't go by the name Ridge runner by sitting on the porch.

          ...long may you run Ridge!!

            Haymaker!!!!! What's up brother?

            The listing says the 2014 property taxes were $5,666. I'm not sure if that's a bargain or not.

            TN ranks #38 in the nation (relatively low) while NJ ranks #1 (the highest).

             

            Golfer1960,

            Sounds like a bargain to me and I live in an area called Bargaintown.  LOL

            $5666 for that property at 13891 Old Hickory Rd. in Antioch TN.is not bad at all,

            I'm paying almost $9600 for 3000sq ft 4 bd 2 1/2 ba. on 1/3 acre.

             

            But oddly enough that property you picked is just 6.5 miles from where the winning ticket was sold.

             

            Anyway, thanks for that map, Delaware at #47 is looking better all the time.

              Oh shut up already. The fact that there are many winners IS a good thing that encourages others to plea and maximize profit. The overwhelming majority of people aren't some unsatisfiable greedy players who want to win excessive amount. Most are happy wining even the starting jackpot. This level of greed is actually not healthy and highlights a deeper psychological issue.

                  The tickets sold for this drawing were approximately 6% of the available numbers. I believe, this drawing was the first drawing with a winner and a second place ticket since the October 7th change. Based on the number of tickets sold this was an unusual event.

                        It's understood that you are unhappy with Tn Lottery. But....I really don't think, actually I know, your Dragon Lady had nothing to do with the PB winner in Tn. The numbers are drawn elsewhere. Therefore, you should stop playing your state games, and just play MM and PB.

                        Good luck!
