HOW ABOUT THEM.................birthday numbers.

LOL

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?

2016: -48.28% (13 tickets) ||
P&L % = Total Win($)/Total Wager($) - 1

      Winning this kind of lottery can actually ruin a person, their lives, their families lives, their friends lives and their neighbors lives. I hope that this person is smart enough to remain anonymous and sells the ticket to a conglomerate and just pay the winner a flat fee and they can stay anonymous forever. Otherwise they are ruined for life with that kind of money.

            I don't understand why they are dragging their feet in jacking up the JP to $1B one billy. Afterall this is once in a blue moon event. I know they talk about projections. Just screw the projections because it might be years before we ever see this kind of jackpot again, barring a substantial increase in the numbers in the matrix.

              The IRS would destroy you.

              Why do you say that? Give it away in $14,000 (or less) chunks and the giver is in the clear.

                They can "ruin" my life anytime. Where do I sign up to have my life "ruined" by a massive Powerball jackpot? Green laugh

                      This Just In:

                       

                      We've all been going around the past couple of weeks or so, with our heads in the clouds, lost in the sauce.

                      OK, but what is this, when you get right down to it?

                      Opinions of this and that.  Different opinions and beliefs of what the winner will actually get paid, etc.

                      Honestly, and respectfully, I think it's a Government ploy, not over the 1 billion jackpot, but over the fact that millions and millions of people are getting hyped up over this thing, and in fact funding the whole jackpot, like we always do but there's a new angle:

                      See, the government is going to win no matter what we say or how much we bet. They are going to further capitalize on our GREED, like always. But just the thought of "Billion" has enticed many millions more, many of them new, and younger players.  The betting today is like it was in recent years, exponentially-self-accelerating the accumulation of the gov's profits.

                      This is the government's money printing machine.  The Lotto. 
                      As if you don't pay enough taxes?

                      Somehow to recoup a significant portion of that 15 trillion dollars "we" owe. People will not stop betting on Lotto, until they're broke. "We the people" are funding this enormous jackpot, for which we'll see very little in return for all the hype.  We used to play this game hoping for some "fair" chance at winning. 

                      Good luck anyway.

                      The Government always wins.That's the price you pay for Democracy. Why people don't get hyped when it's 100 mill confuses me. If you expect to win anything your crazy but you have to try.
