    Still slightly less than half of the annuity. But I'm not complaining.

        Damn the cash option value didn't increase by even $10 million (close though, at $9.6 million)!

        The lotteries sold only $27,917,824 (not including PowerPlay) for last night's drawing, which is about $10 million less than they used to experience at the $148 million level (the few times it actually made it there under the old matrix).  I guess less players are playing with the odds being what they are now.

        A real player will play, even with the odds stacked against them as they are now with the new matrix!

        To complain about the cash pay-out being less than half of the annuity would get all of us players Nowhere! The MUSL don't give a sh_t if we like what they did or not!

        Keep dreaming the impossible dream, it just may come true! Thumbs Up

          I think that $4 is a good trade off for $83.1 million.

              We'll probably see PB sales return to normal when the jackpot gets above $200 million.

              ryan:

              It will take two more rollovers for PB to exceed $200 million. But it will take off after that.

                I bet PB can advertise $200 million with a rollover tomorrow night.
