jj, you will probably lose all of your money in about 5 years.

              In the meantime prior to your "big win" you can always educate yourself by either reading many financial publications or even taking an estate/trust class as this will at least give you some knowledge on the fundamentals of growing your wealth while also preserving it for the future. The one sole individual who is most concerned about your financial well being isn't an attorney, PFP or CPA...it's you.

              jjtheprince, listen to Drenick1. She knows her stuff.

                Don't look now, but this jackpot is also growing slower than in the past.   We won't be over a billion at 20 draws; not even close.

                My suspicion is that people are getting bored by the jackpots and are recognizing the extremely long odds.

                The lottery's strategy to address declining sales, I'm guessing, will be the following:   Raise the ticket price to $5; make the odds 1 to the distance to Pluto in kilometers.

                I think the lottery officials have been killing the goose that laid the golden egg, and dismembering it piece by piece.

                    Distance from earth to Pluto in kilometers: 4.28 billion - 7.5 billion km depending on whether you meant when the two bodies are at their closest distance  or furthest distance. It doesn't sound as absurdly huge when you consider we're up to 1: 292 Million.

                      $280 is not $288 and $302.5 is not $311 million so they are growing slower.-weshar75

                          A few draws ago MM went to 333, now Powerball goes to 333. Are they trying to make us think they rig it? Of all the possible increases both games could have down, they both increase to the same amount mere weeks apart? Welp, time to book a flight and hotel room for my trip to Cambridge City Indiana in about 2 weeks or so.

                            MUSL runs the show for both lotteries, right??

                             

                            Funny I was almost thinking of driving to Cambridge City, IN yesterday. 

                             

                            Indiana had another million dollar winner last night, WTG!  Will be checking their lottery site later on to see where the ticket was sold.

                             

                            Good luck Kingofearth.

                              If you can buy tickets in Indiana, do so!

                              I would now consider that state's status to now be "impossible to lose" I bet everyone who bought a ticket in that state won at least $4.
