A 2nd place winner from Oregon was drawn  in the Powerball jackpot last night : Here's hoping it's  Weshar75. White Bounce

According to his blog he didn't match a single number on last nights drawing. It would have been nice had his luck finally turned around.

      I'm holding Tuesday's winning ticket

       

      actually I hope to even match one number, so far my MM tickets haven't hit on anything

        I'm having trouble seeing 30+ rollovers as a silver lining. 

        When there are frequent winners, at least every month or two, I can rationalize going against the odds by saying "somebody is going to win, I'll put my dollar in so it could be me."  That's turning into "no one wins, why bother". I didn't buy any tickets at all last week.

        It's a silver lining only because the chances of rollovers are higher. I'm not saying low sales are a good thing, just that at least the chance of a larger JP is likely before the frenzy kicks in. Such low sales on a JP valued at over $350 million is otherwise very pitiful and I too never bothered to buy any tickets. I bought tickets for the $333M drawing. When I won nothing, I couldn't be bothered to buy more tickets. This go around, for me, the odds just seem outweigh the dream of winning.

          I Agree! "the chance of a larger JP is likely before the frenzy kicks in". When the frenzy starts then regular players might not win. I am enjoying these long runs.Cheers

            Let's say it goes a little further than that.

            Not just Weshar but quite a few people jinx themselves by 'claiming' jackpots beforehand.

            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

              I don't play just for the jackpot, though that would be great to win, but I also play for second prize, and I would be willing to bet nobody here would turn down a million dollars.

                I do, too. Unfortunately, in Calif, the second prize is rarely a million.  At one time it did get over 2 mil but I am only aware of that happening once.

                  I also play for 2nd place ,, It would more then make me happy and provide short term joy and stability in my life that I would hope to parlay into long term stability and joy

                  Naturally of course I would be very happy with jackpot win

                      I'm talking about posters here on LP when the jackpot gets big.

                        Since we talking about " what ifs" Coin Toss,how about this scenario:  you visit their blog, you like the numbers you see that they have posted and decide to play them. Thing is, they forget to play and lo and beyond- those numbers win.

                        Question: Would you feel that you a little" on the hook" because they failed to played theirs? Would you throw them a bone as a courtesy because their numbers put you firmly on the road to happiness?

                          That would be the last thing on my mind noise-gate.

                           

                          Even though there is well over $100 million separating MM & PB jackpots, notice how they haven't thrown in a few extra million just before the drawing(s).  For example, MM is $390 million this morning, I doubt they'll toss in $10 million to make it $400 million.  There is no incentive for them to do so @ this point.  Same point for Powerball.

                           

                          If you visit Lake Tahoe noise-gate, throw her a big kiss for me.  That is my favorite place of all.  JMH
