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.

    I was able to buy one in TN for 4 draws today.  LA should fix that problem because it's summer and travelers like to stop in and buy multi draws. 

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

      Powerball isn't scheduled to change until the 28th of August so it's probably just a local problem in LA.

        They're still selling multi-draws in NM.
