    Wow. I've only PowerPlayed one time before (to no avail), but since I'm cutting back on my Powerball purchases effective after the current jackpot is won, I'm going to PowerPlay on alternate Saturdays during the promotional period. This period could not have come at a better time for me. If I win a prize during that period and the 10X is not hit, I will continue with that plan until 10X is hit.

      I'm looking forward to it. Imagine winning $2 million for 5/5.

        With their being only one slot that has the 10x it makes it harder for it to hit that slot then the other lower slots.  I still think that the 10x slot should be permanent not just one or two month out of the year.-weshar75

          A permanent 10x slot could potentially put many lotteries in the red.

            This all seems useless if you cover all the powerball numbers. Most states have a liability below that of the 5x powerplay.

              And this is only for players in IDAHO if I read that correctly.

                WOW!  Now that would be a great tranfusion of feshness into PowerBall.  You know the MUSL crew will be paying attention to how it works.  Maybe they'll find it makes money.  If it does, the rest of us may have a shot at it.  Makes second place a lot more acceptable.  I would always buy the Powerplay.

                Cheers

                  Ever heard of the concept of a rules change?  Count the white balls.  Rules have been changed before.

                    It is actually in every jursidiction of Powerball through out the month of March and if 10x does not show up in March it will continue until it does show up in the powerplay wheel.-weshar75

                      They do this for a living, and have perfected the concept of a profit.  Change the rules. THAT SIMPLE!  Lower the top tier amount, compensate the second tier.  Doesn't take a mental giant to make it work.  Just get the members to agree, the players are sheep and will follow along no matter what they do.  Previous changes to the matrix prove that.  The $10.00 scratch off was something that would never happen.  Now people are praising the $20.00 card, and looking for the $40.00 card.  The three dollar Powerball with Powerplay is very possible.  Two dollar Powerball with the current 5X automatic, and 10x coming with 3 dollars.  Remember, there are millions of people working on getting your money.  Nothing is impossible as long as you smile when they insert the option.  We have all made a habit of grabbing our cheeks!

                      Cheers

                        It is? Then why hasn't the Powerball website announced it yet?

                          Powerball.com may not have announced it yet, but the New Hampshire Lottery website has announced it now as well, so it must be in all 30 jurisdictions.
