Why do members here give congrats to these winners?  I've never understood that.  This is a player who potblocked all of us, and obviously it was WAY TOO EASY for them to win anyway.

    Well, if trends are anything, better get PB tickets for this week. Look at how MM has played out the past few drawings!

    Congrats to the winner(s). I live over in NY and have travelled to New Hampshire several times to visit friends and would always buy multi-draw PB/MM tickets while there, I did it for the billion dollar jackpot earlier this year. This PB run I was down in Nashville, TN a couple weeks ago and bought my multi-draws there. Tennessee and New Hampshire are similar in respect to the lottery in that there's no state tax and past winners have demonstrated the ability to remain anonymous by claiming the winnings through a trust. Hopefully the winner of this prize is aware of this option(unlike the family from Tennessee back in January) and elects to claim the winnings in this manner. Just like the family from Indiana did this week or the PB winner from Tennessee who won last November.

          Maybe the NH winner was "Steve Player" - with a quick pick!

          Green laugh

          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.

            Compared to past years.....fewer winners. Already in the last 6 months of the year and only 4 draws with jackpot winners.

             

            I would be surprised if we get to a record breaking jackpot again....but if we do, it will just make the jackpots rise at a slower pace I feel. Winners at the 450 million level will have more people jump in rather than waiting as they have over the last 3 draws to kick start a frenzy. 

             

             

            We need some low level wins....I will take the fall and volunteer to win the pot at 40 million!!

              We're gonna see more top ten jackpots soon enough. By the end of 2016, This latest jackpot will be off the top ten. Get used to the record breaking jackpots.

                I guess I should have been more clear.....

                My definition of record breaking is topping the $1.5 billion jackpot.

                While they will all be very nice pots to take home....I am very mweeeeeehhhhh about these other "records"...
