          No.  I would have taken a shot at it had the price per ticket not been $20.  I got the urge to buy a couple of tickets at the last minute anyway and went to the store with $40, but they were sold out very quickly - in less than 2 weeks I think.  Maybe next time.

            Yes I did.  I was among the early birds who purchased the $20 ticket, but apparently in Illinois, none of the early birds got any worms.  The bell curve was in full effect as the middle cluster took most of the prizes.  Won't be doing that any time soon.  I'll take my chances with the balls...Mega and Power!

            The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

              I thought I would get on that a month ago. I wasn't strongly interested but seeing the date for the drawing, I became strongerly interested today but only if I win some money on PB before the drawing - if it is not already too late to buy tickets.

                  I played Illinois when we had it. Novelty, something different, and the drawing was on St Paddy's, you know (I'm half-Irish, so...)

                  Well, no luck 'o the Irish there....

                  $20 ticket, 500,000 tickets sold, 509 prizes paid, so let's see

                    500,000

                  -       509 winners

                  ___________

                  = 499, 491 losers

                  Think I'll pass next time.  

                  Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                  Lep

                  There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    I had 1 ticket for Ky, maybe I'll have better luck in TN.

                    I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

                        Yes, I played the IL raffle for $20 and would do it again.  I liked the payout-to-odds ratio.

                        Posted 4/6:  IL Pick 3 midday and evening until they hit:  555, 347 (str8).

                            I didn't play the last time and I wish I had since there were "only" 125,000 tickets issued.  I think it's returning to GA this Sunday if I read the Lottery runner board correctly last night.  I need to ask around.

                              It is coming back to GA.  I believe it is this Sunday.

                              When is TN's drawing?  I have 2 tickets for that one.
