Will tonight be the night for the Powerplay 10X?

    I doubt it will happen anytime soon.  In fact, the odds would say that they would have to extend the promotion.  The odds are 1 in 16, with 8 drawings.  According to the odds, they would have to extend the promotion until the end of April.

    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.

      I think tonight is a good night for the 10x to show up in the powerplay wheel.-weshar75

        Yes I agree.  I highly doubt that will be won anytime soon.  They only gave it a few weeks and with odds of having it being hit (there is only one 10 on the wheel) it will be a long time before it comes up.  What they should do it keep adding a 10 every week until it is hit, then that would give the players a more incentive to buy powerplay tickets.

          The odds are 1:16 for EVERY draw this month and, if necessary, ALL future draws until it hits.  There is NO handicapping this event just like there is NO truth to the fantasy of tracking anything that STARTS from a LEVEL playing field with each and every occurrence.

            Bradley, I like your idea! And Guesswhat, is correct as well.

            I'm in this particular endorsement of powerup simply because I want to see if my players group can out perform our other department at work. We keep a monthly tab, and this would be the boast we need to be way out front on overall winnings! The other group has 21 people against our meagerly 4. So I think its an accomplishment in itself that we are still staying even or breaking ahead overall this year :)

            Its sorta the underdog theory but I always loved that cartoon and think our group will have" no need to fear when underdog" appears and makes us a winner!

              Probably 10x being I did not powerplay tonight. Course I usually never do anyway. But most likely a 5x, or 4x.

                I don't PowerPlay either. Of course, if the 10x comes up and I win any cash prize, especially the $200,000, that will annoy me.

                  I ALWAYS play powerplay.

                  Hope to see the 10x, but with my luck lately, I'll have no matches Frown

                      Who would know? But I hope it would come out on 3/11, this Saturday... and so voted.

                      Good luck to all powerplayers!

                        Probably either the last day 3/29 because it is fixed to generate the most money possible, or then April. I think that wheel is rigged. Always 5 usually, or 4x. People know this though, that is why they buy powerplay.

                          If the wheel is rigged, then why so many 4x or 5x? The expected value is supposed to be 3.5 (temporarily higher because of the 10x). Since 20% of the first $1 is supposed to go to the lower level prizes, it does make sense that the expected value of the second $1 is 2.5 times that amount for those prizes, since that would make 50% (since the second $1 does not affect the jackpot).

                            As I said we the smart players know it is rigged and will come out to 4x or 5x most of the time, that is why we are supposed to power play hoping that we will then hit. But of course we don't match jack anyway, and our own knowledge was actually used against us. So twice as much money lost becaue we knew it was going to be 5x again, and prayed for 10x only to still not match any numbers...

                              But doesn't the Powerplay 10x promotion end after this month?

                              Smart lottery winners form trust to claim their winnings.  They send an attorney to the lottery headquarters to claim the prize in trust, so that ONLY the name of the trust is revealed.  And they tell NO ONE, especially relatives.

                              If you ever win a lottery and you are single, the only person you should ever marry is someone who was truly in love with you BEFORE you won the jackpot!
