      Wow this is truly unbelievable, that is a lot of money. I surely thought that somebody was going to win tonight's drawing. I guess new players are going to come out to play.

        this is really stupid because no matter who wins the next jackpot, we now know that same thing can happen again. another long run to a big jackpot that takes peoples money just to make a few millionaires (or one single billionaire)..what is really the purpose of this isht... to make money for the lottery and the states that allow it...median individual income in us is $24,000..median household is $52,000..just dangle a billion dollar carrot jackpot and suckers will buy it at $2 a ticket. there is a sucker born every minute.

                  Lol, yup, this will be the talk of the country for the next week and when people see $1.3 billion dollar jackpot on billboards while driving, talking about it on social media, at work, or wherever, they will want to play for that chance to win.

                      Awesome stuff. Powerball's at $1.3 Billion! You'll be up there with Bill Gates's net worth if you win this.

                      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.

                        Bill Gates is worth anywhere from $80 billion to $100 billion, you won't be anywhere remotely near him even if you win this. Smile

                            Funny also how back when the MM got up to $656 million after they changed it they said Powerball sales slumped, and then they changed PB to make it harder and look at it now lol. Also funny how people disregard "smaller amounts" that are still huge amounts and life changing. But most of society is financially illiterate and have no clue just how much money millions or billions is. Then you get some new players who buys a ticket on a whim and wins it all who is not even prepared at all. The lottery plays no favorites.

                              I got the 13,16 57.

                               

                              And 19 in a separate ticket.

                               

                              Worth a few bucks for the next draw.

                              How about them cowboys!
