When I say top 10 % , I mean that the drawing is top ten percent of all its Powerball jackpots !

          I got curious and did the math.  Here are my findings based on the annuity value of the 151 PB draws since the matrix change on 8/31/05, including the upcoming draw on 2/7/07:

          Average - $84.5 million

          Median - $64 million

          25th percentile - $30m

          75th percentile - $115m

          90th percentile - $195m (next lowest jackpot is $180m)

          I'll post the average and median stats in a minute only for the draws in which the jackpot was won.
