    i think there's a chance that that website jumped the gun.  there was a time when ND messed up. judging as how with that many tickets sold, that the lotteries would need at least an hour and a half, probably two hours or more to figure out if a winning ticket was sold and to figure out the next jackpot.  something tells me that SD jumped the gun.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

      The Official PB site says it has rolled to $340,000,000. I guess SD's site is for PB, as IL's site is for MM. The first place that'll know the jackpot.

      But back to the jackpot, they got a new record (albeit in a kind of dirty way). Everything they planned is working in their favor.

        Well I am curious of how large the match 5 bonus will be when it hits for all of the 5+0 winners.

          New PB record, but not new North American record (still held by The Big Game @ $363 million).

            Not one ticket winning the second prize won the powerplay. 

            Also did you see how many winning tickets PA had compared to any other state.

            PA must be the state the sells the most Powerball Tickets.

              Is that crazy or what?  With the big Power Play promo in Pennsylvania, still no PP 5+0 winner!

                Well I am curious of how large the match 5 bonus will be when it hits for all of the 5+0 winners.

                This is from PB's website...

                 

                Something Wonderful is Going to Happen!
                Match 5 BONUS Prize Pool.

                The Powerball Jackpot is moving past its previous record jackpot ($315 million). That means that a new prize pool is being created. It is time to Share the Winnings. For the rest of this run, the jackpot will be increased by no more than $25 million per draw. Any money over that amount will go to the new BONUS prize pool and it will build until there is a jackpot winner. This is almost like two jackpot pools - except that this pool gets paid to everyone who matches five white ball numbers. Now, if you match 5 white balls, and there is a jackpot winner for that draw, you get an equal share in the prize pool shown here. This prize pool payment is on top of any regular Match 5 prize or any Power Play multiplier you win and does not change those amounts. How do you enter to win this prize? Don't worry, it's automatic. Just stop by to pick up your Match 5 prize and we'll give you the extra cash.

                 

                They also say "The Rolling Match 5 Bonus Prize Pool is Estimated $13 mill cash.

                      Because the match-5 bonus is not the jackpot.

                        Everyone, I hope that the jackpot rolls into next Saturday to break the North American jackpot record. Who's going to vote with me?

                              Wow, the cap has arrived, never thought I'd live to see the day! 

                              Is it just me, or does the Wednesday draw always take forever to arrive?
