and i just id the math. they are correct. 110 tickets matched 5 white balls. that's $11 million (without taking power play into account) that the states will give out to players just from second prizes. anyone come up big?

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.

    with this many winners, i wouln't be too surprised if the $100,000 winners get less than $100,000. i bet they went over the liability cap.


    Na Todd said that wouldn't happen.

        WAIT

        Not only did several states won $100,000

        MOST OF THEM CHOSE POWERPLAY lol

        and guess what the powerplay number was: 5

        One day it might come true.

          you are correct. the liability is $25 million for the total lower prizes before they become pari-mutuel.

            did anyone else notice the really small amount of $5000 winners. quite a few states did not even sell a single $5000 winner.

              I hope you all got your information from USA Mega, which reported the jackpot craziness as early as 12:22am.

              Did you see that the AP incorrectly stated that there were 89 second-tier winners?

                HOw did this happen with such high numbers?  Sounds like syndicate action.

                  It does sound odd, especially since the winners are fairly well distributed.  It's not like a guy in one state bought 100 tickets with the same numbers.

                    It dosen't sound or look odd to me i said it before that the games could do this and probably will again. If the numbers had been 10 20 30 40 50 pb 25 i bet the amount of winners would be 4 times what they were.

                      I hope we find out if the bulk of these were self-pick or computer quick pick.  The answer to that question will open the door to many other questions.

                        What difference would that make the balls don't know who picked what numbers. It just deals them out.

                          The difference would be if they were self-picks, what is it about those numbers that caused that many people to pick them.  They aren't all low numbers (31 and below) so they aren't just birthday type numbes.  If they are computer picks, it would seem like a glitch to have that combination picked that many times when it hasn't happened before.

                            you mean that 1000 or more people couldn't have family members whose ages are


                            22-28-32-33-39 or intermixed  age numbers and birth dates.

                             

                             

                            I'm sure not all were computer generated. it could have been still it would make no difference a computer in DC supposedly dosen't comunicate with a computer in PA. 

                             

                            when you buy a quick pick you get a specific set of numbers from that machines random number generator.

                              WOW!  My mouth dropped when I saw that 110 people won second prize.  What is up with that.  There had to have been a computer glitch or something.  I mean those numbers aren't special in anyway.  I can't believe there was only one jackpot winner also.  I can't wait to see what the powerball people say.
