      Looks great.  Time to play $5.  I'm glad TN lotto 5 is lower now.  I'm about tapped out for this week.  Thankfully I get paid Friday.

      How are you going to win if you don't play?

            Nice to see Powerball back to normal.  I guess the fortune cookie incident was the kiss of death for the lucky streak of Powerball jackpot winners.

            I remember when the lottery hit 111 million years ago. It was very big news. Now its barely news. It's nice that powerball is on a roll. I hope it's not hit for the next 2 drawings.

                Yes.  Like the grand finale at the 4th of July fireworks.

                  I quit doing Powerball a while ago unless my company has a pool then I'd rather take my chances on pick 4.  Powerball for me is like a mirage in the desert.  I think I woke up one day when a friend of mine who's friend played in the NBA said his friends and a few other (NBA) players went in years ago on Powerball spending like 10 grand on tickets over the course of a few days and the best they got was 4 numbers.  They payed a few people to go through all of the tickets for them.  Craziness.  Why they would need the extra money anyway beats me.

                      Spending 10 grand on tickets is nuts!!!  If you don't win a jackpot, you can only win more than you spend if you have three match 4+1 tickets or one match 5+0 ticket!
