0 Pennsylvania players matched 5 of 5 and the Power Ball; next estimated jackpot $300,000,000.00
2 Pennsylvania players matched 5 of 5, each receiving $200,000.00
25 Pennsylvania players matched 4 of 5 and the Power Ball, each receiving $10,000.00
831 Pennsylvania players matched 4 of 5, each receiving $100.00
1,030 Pennsylvania players matched 3 of 5 and the Power Ball, each receiving $100.00
42,663 Pennsylvania players matched 3 of 5, each receiving $7.00
17,310 Pennsylvania players matched 2 of 5 and the Power Ball, each receiving $7.00
101,676 Pennsylvania players matched 1 of 5 and the Power Ball, each receiving $4.00
187,062 Pennsylvania players matched the Power Ball, each receiving $3.00

 

Yes color me skeptical, but is there anyway to confirm the top 2nd and 3rd tier prize winners? Or do we have to simply take their word that there were that many winners who were ever "so close?" Skeptical Sounds like a great marketing ploy to me, and perhaps even a conspiracy. Just how accurate are those numbers every week?

    I have no doubts of their accuracy.  All state lotteries get audited by top accounting firms, so that kind of obvious error would immediately be caught.

     

    Check the State Lottery Report Card
    What grade did your lottery earn?

      I don't see a problem with the final audit. This is not guessimate numbers, this is actual state treasury numbers. Fudging those equates to jail time.

      Cheers

          If the IRS is fuging numbers, we have bigger problems then the lottery.

              The IRS has been screwing us all over for a very long time. Why stop now?
