And Indian Land is considered a "Sovereign Nation". The Indian casinos generate plenty of cash every year for their tribe and pay No Taxes to the State or the IRS! And that's alright with me. Thumbs Up

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

    I think that powerball will change their matrix before mega millions does but it won't be till 2010.  Mega millions is more selective in who they let into mega millions and powerball has a more "the more the merrier" attitude to letting states join.  Besides powerball could adjust the white balls two more balls and I think the odds would be less than what mega millions odds are right now.

      A matrix of 5/57 + 1/42 would produce 175,858,452 combinations.  That's only 146,916 more combinations than Mega Millions.

      If that matrix became a reality, they'd need to increase their second place prize to $300,000, and possibly increase their fourth, fifth, and sixth place prizes.

      I have a feeling that this recent jackpot run for powerball will be a staple, but i don't think theyll change the matrix for a while.  remember that they are going to have to give away the money sooner or later.

       mega millions has not had a jackpot hit at less than $100 million since the matrix change, so i think that it is working. 

      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.

        Ever been on Indian Territory? Ever been to the great Cherokee Nation Tribal Office? You should go there, the American taxpayer paid for it - and continues to pay for it.

        It has some really great artifacts. Rows and rows of booze, cases upon cases of cigarettes. Strangely enough, you will never find a college on an Indian Reservation; you would do good to find a High School. You will Indian Beads for sale, except they all say, made in China. You can't sew beads together when your hands are shaking for the hang-over. Challenge, find a drug or alcohal rehab center inside the Cherokee Nation land. They do have, and brand new shiney building housing a crew of the best publicist money can bribe.

        Liquer stores abound. Bingo Halls by the hundreds.  However, you will not find the Indians actually doing anything in those Bingo Halls or Casino's, they have to hire non-Indians to run and operate them. The job of the Indian is to stand at the front door and look sober; masterful acting.

        Cheers

            Powerball has never had its jackpot go over $100 million for more than two consecutive runs, while Mega Millions is currently on its seventh consecutive jackpot run that made it over $100 million.
