    Anyone planning to play at Prime Ticket Service should get their orders in immediately.  I got mine in this morning.  When the jackpot is huge they have been cutting off sales early.  It's actually one of the things I like about them -- if they feel their sales are beyond their capacity they will cut off sales, rather than keep taking orders for tickets that possibly can't be bought.  Based on the current jackpot, I would not be surprised if it was an entire day early.

    Todd: Aren't you close enough to drive to PA to play PowerBall? Then you would know it was bought in a tax free state, and probably cheaper than on-line. Twenty tickets would cost $20.00 in PA, The on-line for the same count would cost $50.00. I plan on driving the 50 (25 each way) miles Saturday - and again Sunday if no winner Saturday. I consider it a break from my normal life.

    Cheers

      Yes, I could drive, but I simply don't have the time to do so, and the difference in cost is too small.  At about $3.20 per gallon for gas (Corvettes need premium gas), it is simply not worth the drive.  But the time factor is the biggest reason.  I'm not able to take 2 hours out of my day just to buy lottery tickets.  How would anything get done here if I did?  Cheers

        When lotteries first started in the U.S. and there were only a few states that had them, I would read about people taking plane trips to New York or another state with large lottery jackpots, buying a bunch of QPs and returning to their state and distributing them for an increased price.  Now days that most states have a major lottery or one in an adjacent state and online ticket services like PTS, that doesn't happens any more.

          Oops - how right you are. Next time I see a Vet, I'll pull over and yield!

              LOL Yeah, can you imagine seeing a black Corvette screaming down Route 80 on a mission to get lottery tickets!

                I had a heart attack on I80 in 2000. Resulted in quad-bypass and miles of teflon. I have an aversion to I80. I take 15 or 23 whenever possible. Not too happy with cigarteets either!!

                  Todd - I take it a hybrid in not in your future. I personnally drive a diesel so get excellent milage but it's very gutless on acceleration.

                    Yeah, no hybrids for me.  At least until the 350 HP version comes out. Wink

                    In the motorboats vs. sailboats debate, you'd know where I stand.

                      Until the naturalist revert us back to the pre-horse days, enjoy the freedom of being an American. If you want a Vet, powerboat, or a 10 passenger SUV, and can afford it, buy it, own, be proud of it. I smile every time a Mercedes 500, Lincoln Navitgator, or BMW 745 rolls by on the road. That is an American being an American. Let the bleeding hearts live in the woods and hug the trees. I'm staying at the Hilton and taking long hot showers!
