    could be that some member or members have/had already hit the pot. They just didn't advertise that fact.

      I think that there is a distinct possibility that some one may get it. I mean there are over 15,000 members aren't there? Maybe one of the non posters has already done that. -Bonnie

          Yeah, there may have already been a lp member that hit the jackpot.  For all we know, Todd may have hit the jackpot but he just won't advertise it.

          I guess the chance of a JP winner hanging around here is low.

            LP members have just as good of chance of winning the jackpot as anyone else.  However after looking at their predictions for these games and their number of wins, I don't think they have an advantage over the general public.  For example on the prediction page for 05/28/05, there were about 90 predictions for the PowerBall game and only one winning combination (1+1) for $4. The overall odds of winning something is 1:43 and I suspect that LP members average is no better even though one would might think hundreds of players sharing ideas could do better.

                Predictions mean squat.  The games are all luck.

                    I think some might well have already won, but I see JAP69 as a contender, supposing he isn't among those who've won already.

                    As for predictions, I'd agree with MJOH.  My guess is the people likely to win aren't making a lot of predictions.

                          Eegads... if I say NO then I admit defeat within the confines of my little magical-thought driven world. Must not face reality... uh, I mean... Must not give into doubt. Whew, that was close.

                            Will there come a time when the Megamillions and Powerball draw more than twice a week?  I checked the state web site, and it wasn't that long ago that the 5-ball lottery was a twice a week drawing.

                              If I win it won't be on a QP.
