I hate to admit it but I got 20 tickets on MM and 15 tickets for PB. Not to mention all the ticket$ I purchased since the MM crossed $200M. Good luck to me. Yes Nod

    Not a chance. I like my little market thank you very much.  My SO would be happy to get huge workspace to fix his tractors and other implements. Fully enclosed and under cover.

      That's insane!

      There are three other lottery retailers not too far away from that location. I wonder how long the lines were there.

      It must have produced a major winner in the past. Players being interviewed often say, lightening could strike twice.

          Can you imagine standing in that line for 3+ hours just to give a clerk a few $$ for a 20 second transaction ??

          Now that's putting it into perspective but they would argue those 20 seconds give them a chance to dream. Lol

            Can't believe they haven't upped it to $1.85 Billion yet!  Are the bean counters off on the weekend?? 

             

            Thinking of...

              Sure that's not the migrant caravan from South America  making it's way through Mexico to our borders?

              A winner can apply for a B5 visa.

                And they'll be back again on Wednesday if it rolls again Tuesday.

                $3.5 BILLION for Friday

                With bells on!

                    Do you think Powerball will increase the odds of 1:292M to maybe 1:330M to keep up with MM and have higher jackpots?  I think it is just around the corner myself.  I like the idea of combining MM & PB and have the drawings 3 times a week.  It would create more excitement.  Also, would like to see more $5M or $10M winners.  Share the wealth man!

                    It's a bad idea to compete in worsening the odds to much. Superenalotto in Italy have 1:622,614,630 to match 6 out of 90! the jackpot also grows slow and nobody hardly ever wins.

                      Wow, that's incredible. You can't buy lottery tickets in Nevada so the citizens have to cross over into CA to buy lottery tickets. I guess that makes since so that the state doesn't compete and put the casinos out of business. I used to have to drive to PA back in the 1980's to buy Powerball tickets but now NJ offers MM and PB. No lines where I live because it's readily available.

                          MM... That figure would be ridiculous to win. The take-home after fed taxes would be in the $1.3 - 1.4 Billion range
