A coworker and I put up $2 every payday and buy a 4 draw ticket for Powerball but this week we've run into a problem.  Two different stores told me the sale of multi draw Powerball tickets has suspended until August.  Nobody knew why, just that they couldn't sell me a mutli draw ticket.

Anyone else having this problem?  Anyone know why?

    You _should_ be able to buy a 4-draw ticket, but not a 26-draw ticket. PB changes in late August.

      I had the same problem last week when I tried to buy a 20 drawing ticket.  It appears to be limited to Louisiana.  Unfortunately, I'll have to do without since I'm not going to drive from Fort Worth to Shreveport twice a week.

        I was at a supermarket this week and I got the answer.  I saw a sign on the lottery display saying they were suspending the sale of multi draw tickets until August 28 when the changes to Powerball take effect.  It's going to be annoying for me and my coworker for a little while, since we can't buy our 4 draws at once until August.

        At least now I have my answer.
