The LAST thing we need is MORE numbers added to the matrix.

 

A win last night comes as NO surprise to me as it was a relatively 'common' game, IF you are a halfway serious PB 'watcher'.

I could elaborate, but some of you know what I'm talking about so I won't bore you with details.

    I think I know exactly what you mean.....it had a 'nice' mathematical pattern. :)

      I hope this isn't the start of a trend. Somebody in Kansas won the $15mil Powerball jackpot, the second in a row. And we know Mega Millions just had it's 3rd winner in 4 draws. I sure hope this isn't the beginning of another winning streak.

      I agree.

       

      But I'm saving my money for a week or two.

        I'm a Mega-Million Fan and although it has sucked badly this year, I'm looking for this to be the beginning of a long roll of draws.  I believe it will not be hit before at minimum $260m.  Early December - of course right before Xmas, for one lucky family.  Merry Xmas.  Oh, maybe it will be my family.

          OMG Powerball got won AGAIN!!! That's the third draw in a row!! If this keeps up, when Powerball actually does start rolling again, it will increase by only $5 million per draw for at least the first three rolls. On the plus side, the opening cash jackpot increased from $7.2 million to $7.3 million (probably slightly lower interest rates).

          The only other time PB was won three draws in a row was on January 10, 14, and 17, 1998!!

          I hope Powerball doesn't add yet more numbers to the matrix as a result of all this.

            Unbelievable doesn't even begin to describe it!  I've never seen anything like it.  At least the jackpots are being spread around, and are being won in different states.

              Great, not only do we have another winner, but it's the 2nd bigot state to win in 3 draws. Arizona's next, mark it down

                  Excuse me, but did you have a typo here?

                  Did you mean to call Louisiana the "2nd bigot" state?

                      What JimmySand means is that Iowa and Louisiana (and Arizona) require lottery players to be 21 years old for all its games, including PB. Every other US lottery (except Nebraska, 19) has a minimum age of 18.

                        Guess I better play, looks like the odds now favor another jackpot win.
