It seems that some one(s) is confused between "minimum winning" and "maximum or potential winning". I think that interpreting "minimum" as "maximum" may have a potential to mislead, though I may be wrong...

    one can control the minimum winning,but only the lottery can control the maximum winning.

      Focusing on the second prize just proved to me the lack of intellegence at MUSL. Their sales are not due to the second prize, it's due to the recent jackpot runs they have had. Getting rid of the cap rule would help sales. As it is now there is no point to get the powerplay if they give it out for free after it hits the cap.

      cap rule? did that come into play after that fortune cookie blunder?

        No, the cap rule is that if Powerball sets a new record jackpot, rollovers are limited to $25 million per drawing with the excess rolling down to the match 5+0 winners. This has already happened twice since the last matrix change, and it has never happened before even though the rule has been in effect since Powerball went 5/53 + 1/42 in October 2002.
