    In my Opinion I think that If powerball hit 500 million and no one wins, Money should be spread among second tier. Instead of one person winning the whole thing to him or herself. We all bought tickets to boost the sales, so it's only fair if everyone that bought a ticket get its share. Good luck to everyone

      The website that sells tickets to residents from abroad is currently "down for maintenance". 

       

      Quite possible they are experiencing an enormous amount of traffic.

            Haha, too bad Alabama won't see a penny of this. Gonna be a lot of Bama tags at the Pilot store in Tallapossa, GA.

            The lottery is NOT a tax on the poor.  By calling it a tax, you are calling it mandatory, which is what taxes are.  But the lottery is NOT mandatory, therefore calling it a tax highly inaccurate.

              That jackpot is huge. I don't want to share with everyone! Sharing is caring what people say , but not in this case.  If i do win ,  i might have to move to another country , to get away from the leaches ( family members , so called friends)!!

              I fell youI Agree!

                Please tell me you're kidding. You think people are shelling out their money so 700 people can become millionaires? If you really want fair then everyone who bought tickets should get something back. But because we're adults and not in little league where everyone is given a prize for participating, then the system as is is fair. You know what the game is and what the odds are. If you choose to still play, that's it. There are many games with much more frequent winners where max's are capped. Since MUSL doesnt have monopoly on gambling, no one should think it's unfair.

                I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                The odds are about the same.

                      True to that, hope they manage to buy all tickets, and scan them. Must be a hell of a job to do this work this week..

                        It'll get to a billion by Saturday judging by the huge line at my small town store.  Smile  People are buying $20, 50, $100 worth of tickets.  This is crazy.  Everybody is talking about Powerball!

                          I 1000% agree with you on that. i want to see one winner just to make people mad. i spend my $2 to be the jackpot winner all other prizes are just nice to have but i go in either with the hope of millions of dollars or crap out.

                            Haha, there won't be much to spread around.  This time there will likely be 75-100 5+0 winners I'd say.

                              Did you know Lotterypost websites crash last night for at least 30 minutes or more.
