        That's great.  I won $10 on tonight's drawing.  (matched 3 numbers on one line and got the powerball on another).

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

              Considering the numbers that were picked, I'm surprised there wasn't a jackpot winner.

              Thirty-one tickets won $100,000 (six had powerplay for $200,000); that's seventeen more winners at that level than statistically expected for its sales of $40,387,916 (source: lottoreport.com)

             147 tickets won $5,000 (twenty-six had powerplay for $10,000); that's sixty-six more winners at that level than statistically expected

              With 31 5+0 winners, Powerball was lucky to get a rollover.

                    There were $44.5 million tickets sold.  I wonder if there will be about the same or more for wednesday?

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

                        They probably expect the same amount of sales, since the rollover was only $25 million.

                        I remember last July, a Mega Millions drawing had all low numbers, except for the mega ball, and thirty-four tickets won $175,000 each when only four of those winners were statistically expected.  The jackpot was also won by one ticket and it was at the starting level ($10 million).

                            I think Powerball's press release figures include PowerPlay as well.

                            I suspect now that the PB jackpot is close to $200M, more office pools will be participating,  more tickets will be sold and as a result a there will be an even bigger jump in sales. With thirty-one 5+0 hits during the last drawing, I'm surprised there was still a roll over, it gets more unlikely as the jackpot continues to increase.

                             * you don't need to buy more tickets, just buy a winning ticket *
