Easy ...ask those Johnny come lately players to feel out a slip lol...

Their first response would be "What is a slip?"

Good One Kyle.

        Hey Thrifty, when you post all these numbers does that mean you have ALL these numbers in the next MM drawing?

          I don't play the JP games often, hardly at all actually, but I just have to play when it hits over a half a billion. Like a few million wouldn't suffice..lol

          Hundreds of millions of losing tickets and only one or two winners, I know worse than a meteor hitting me on the head while walking around in a meteor Museum, on the fourth of July. ROFL

          Either I'll be really really happy If I win the JP, or this may be the last post I ever make. Eek    Maybe I'll check my numbers in the emergency room, just in case they have to revive me...Green laugh

                So the 25th largest jackpot by cash value is $180m and PB is at $179.7m? If PB rolls again you guys will have to do four posts like this every week!

                I've been putting all my lottery budget into MM but maybe I should buy just one PB ticket, like the people who bought just one MM when PB was huge.

                Powerball is now the 20th largest cash and within easy range of being 19th by Saturday. Has there ever been two "Preliminary Jackpots" on the top 25 before?

                  I am not positive about this but unless it happened several years back i do not think it has has happened before

                      I find it incredibly ridiculous that people are excited by this. After each win the jackpot starts off at 7million dollars. Is that not enough to excite people? the same people who can barely afford to buy food or pay next months rent. The same people who are the pawns of the corporate elite who pay you pennies while they rake in hundreds of billions of dollars in profits. But hey lets hang a banner announcing you can win 500 million, even though you will give half away in taxes that will go into the elites pockets, lets double the odds every 2 years until you have a better chance of having dinner with space aliens from across the galaxy than winning, then lets watch these same people who can barely afford to eat a sandwich spend half their paycheck of pennies to pick a combination out of 258,890,850 so they can "win" some money. The human species is the stupidest species on this planet. I have never seen any other animal do anything close to as stupid as I see humans do.

                      I agree with you.  Before my dad passed away in Feb., when that Powerball was up there it excited him.  Sure wish we had 5 numbers won at least. 

                       

                      I have a different way of playing this game.  Spreadsheet and the usamega website. 

                       

                      The same idiots that I have listened to on the radio where half the people would own such and such.  In the end some people blow it all.   Scary it sounds and that is true. 

                       

                      The only people actually raking in $$$ are the internet models on facebook, instagram and so forth.  Those people young don't have to do anything the rest of their lives.

                        My reply to a news reporter would be this.  "It's for me to know and you to find out."

                         

                        I will be honest with you.  If I was interviewed by a hot sexxy news girl I would tell her if I were to hit she could quit her job and be with me.  Proof is on camera.  The news reporter girls are pretty hot and from one I recall had to wear high heels about 4 inch ones.

                            It goes back to the question, how much money does one person need?
