    they really need to change the matrix, and increase the starting jackpot.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

        This time there weren't even any $100,000 winners either!  Talk about dumb luck!

        This is also the fifth consecutive jackpot run that didn't even make it to $50 million!

        There have been one too many PB winners here. I think it's time to go 5/55+1/40.

          i would make it 5/55+1/50. that makes it especially hard for the jackpot to be hit, making for huge jackpots.

            The number of PBs should be decreased (eg 5/59 + 1/29).

              Makes you think that somebody's cracked the formula......(just trying to throw a little intrigue into the problem)  cause this is definitley a sales killer if I ever saw one..............

                A lot of the smaller states are winning - which is making residents of those states happy, I'm sure!

                    The numbers they drew fit a lot of profiles for filling out tickets. A few years ago they would have fit my familys just right as we had a 4 year old a 10 year old a 15 year old a 48 year old and a 51 yr old in my familys birthday profile the only number not in the profile was 13. So i suspect unless the winner won with a quick pick they also might have family members with those numbers.

                    There have been a few drawings in both mega and powerball when my family numbers came close to winning the pot. And many times i won peices of the pot with birthday numbers..

                    There is no mystery as to why the pots aren't allways at or above 100 million dollars. People play to win and any pot could be won at any time if they buy the right numbers. There isn't a day that goes buy when i play the lottery that i don't say to myself this is my day to win. Congradulations to the Idaho winner. I hope that they enjoy there new found wealth and everything goes well with their future.

                        four4me:  Good call.  There's a significant population of lottery players who want the jackpots to be won more often - and don't really like the mega jackpots.  (More millionaires made; fewer mega-millionaires.)  That group of players must be happy with all this Powerball winning!

                            Yes, they should keep Powerball the way it is.  Or, make it no harder than 5/55 + 1/40.

                              Are you guys smoking something. Raise the powerball odds? As long as I have not won the jackpot and especially as long as I keep playing everyday without winning that much, the better keep as it is.

                              You guys need to quit complaining. $10 million is a lot of money.
