I was in Louisiana yesterday and tried to purchase a 20 drawing Powerball ticket. There are 20 drawings before the August 28th change so I thought there would be no problem.
Two retailers told me that the Lousiana Lotto said that there is a computer problem and that there would be no Powerball Multidraw sales until August 28th.
That's right, you can't even buy a two drawing ticket for this Wednesday and Saturday.
Is this a problem in all Powerball states? How will it effect sales? Jackpot size?
I was going to drop $60 for myself and others. I spent nothing and seriously doubt I will be the only person to do this.
