True. I've hit Powerplay a few times to turn $3 into $15. Powerball will be saving a ton of money on those lower payouts for the smaller prizes.
And, possibly, losing a ton of money on the players who played with that in mind. Might be a wash for them, unless people just quit using the multiplier entirely. Which might happen. I know one who's giving it some thought.
If all those cubicles full of psychologists, MBAs, accountants and advertising men have done their homework and made the right guesses they'll obviously win. But there's a body of evidence out there that those folks sometimes think we're all stupid in a different way than we actually are.
Absorb the good, ignore the bad, weigh the ugly.
It's about number behavior.
Egos don't count.
