Someone in Pennsylvania won Powerball tonight. This is very unbelievable. People consistenly beating 120 million to 1 odds to win the Powerball jackpot at such a low sales level.



Well, congrats to the winner..

      Luck is certainly on a lot of people's sides lately.

      What's next, is there going to be a jackpot winner again this Saturday!?

      People just keep winning this thing. Winning and winning and winning. That would be nice if that was the idea of the game. But the idea of the game is large jackpots that generate excitement. $10,000,000 may not be measly if it was just handed to you. But when the odds are one in 120 million, it's chump change. And keep in mind that's the annuity jackpot before taxes.

          On the other side of the coin, the Illinois Lotto has currently gone 33 consecutive draws without being hit and that jackpot has actually jumped $2 million to $27 million.  A $2 million jump has never occurred in the IL Lotto since the site started tracking the game in June 2002.

          this is getting old.  i find it hard to believe that such an increase in frequency of jackpot hits is attributable to pure conicidence/luck.  Last year, in the middle of march there were only two winners.  It wasnt until July that the powerball had been won 6 times.  I dont mind the powerball being hit more often, but seeing that jackpot drop down to 10 million over and over again is getting quite old.

            That's it. I'm through with Powerball unless I start seeing some larger jackpots. I'm fortunate enough to live right on the border with Washington, so I'll get Mega Millions tickets instead.

              We need to take action. We need to talk tom the MUSL and get them to increase the matrix.

              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.

                Wait. Could this be a sign that the MUSL should switch to computerized drawings so nobody wins and jackpots get higher?



                Nah. Probably not.

                  Once again $20 million seems hard to break through. With all these frequent Powerball hits, are we on the precipice of a really big roll-over run during one of the near term jackpot cycles? At times like these when Powerball seems stuck, I can't help but ponder the question ...could we rapidly break out of this seemingly vicious cycle?

                  If it happend in December of 2002, it can happen in April of 2005

                  ... the lottery never fails to surprise!

                    no. we have to wait until it gets to $18 million before we see another winner.

                        You never know.  This new run could actually get long enough to trigger a match 5 bonus pool!

                        Well they added a bunch of new states wtih new players and didn't have the foresight to change the matrix. The current slump in sales and in the size of the jackpot is something that could have been foreseen exept MUSL didn't think the game through. I wonder at this point if they are bothering to call up the participating states to make changes or what.
