I agree with this CASH Only. I don't care about the cash option, just the annuity value part. However, PB sales are lacking because of more jackpot winners of 100 million or less. Without CA playing MM, sales will suffer too.

  Damn lucky winners!  Why can't I be one of them at least!?  I'll bet even after Powerball changes their matrix they won't have back to back runs of $100 million or more.

    It might only make up for the introduction of N. Carolina. Unless CT leaves it would just be a new large pool of players added so I wouldn't hold my breath for a record.

      I hope CA keeps MM, CT keeps PB, and NC joins PB. I hope MM and/or PB hits 363 million [annuity] or more when one ticket finally wins their respective jackpot. However, if people win smaller jackpots of 100 million or less, records will be safe.

          I'm not sure I'd care as much if the next one behaves better than Jack as much as I'd RATHER be the next one! Okay, I'll try to maintain a very low profile and proper lifestyle. Sun Smiley

            I wish everybody would stop knocking Jack. He lost a relative which might have been linked to his win. At least few have criticized his taking lump sum.

              I hope one single, record breaking, winning ticket can unseat Jack Whittaker.

              Basically, I hope the single winning ticket [Annuity] takes cash value. I hope the cash value unseats Jack Whitaker.
