JP will restart back at $15 million... 

How are you going to win if you don't play?

        So much for the new matrix decreasing the number of winners.  However, as long as I don't win, there can never be too many winners.

        It's a slow cycle of death - Powerball gets too many winners; it hurts sales; they increase the matrix; it temporarily hurts sales even further, which leads to more rollovers, which leads to a super-sized jackpot, which causes sales to go back up, which gets the winners back, and Powerball's back where they were before they changed the matrix.

        This one was won pretty quickly. I thought it would roll a couple more times.

          What a crock of crap. I was saving for weeks too for a shot at a bigger jackpot. Just my LUCK.

            I got one QP because I did not take it too seriously this week. I was hoping that would actually make the difference. I was sort of close too, and not bad for only ONE ticket. My numbers were 4-10-11-25-43 [23]      Winning numbers 6-11-14-27-41-[20]

              I hope this isn't another BS winning streak.

                  Being hit last night almost sets it up for a big holiday run say either Christmas eve or New Years eve. Not that stuff like that can be planned. Good luck to all.................

                    I was disappointed to hear there was a winner. But since it was in the shadow of the BIG win. it is ok. For now

                      It will be interesting to see who claims their jackpot first.

                      But I believe someone in MO just had dumb luck to win it.  The odds of a rollover were still very high.  This should only happen once in a while.

                        It's about time someone won PB or MM below $100 million.  Statistically this should be the norm, not the exception.

                          With Powerball being played in 29 States as opposed to the 12 States for MegaMillion and million or more people playing, it's inevitable that hits will come more frequent. (I think):-)

                                No, because Mega Millions has more players than Powerball.  However, Powerball has 30 million less combinations than Mega Millions.
