This is actually very rare isn't it.  3 drawings in a row now and two of them at the minimum level.  With tickets sales so low at that level it is suprising to see this happening.  I can't believe it happened in MM also.  It really does seem like these games move together.

    It happened: The past does not equal the future, so as time goes on I'm sure you'll see other infrequent events.

      Yeah, this is kinda weird.  Wonder what the odds of 3 consective draws getting hit were.  The first was due but the next two in a row is kinda crazy.

        Listen guys, look at the previous drawing from PB. The sum was 206. What goes up must come down. I've studied PB sums for some time know. The other thing that not to many people know, unless you work near a terminal, is that this drawing is a typical quick pick. I've been working at a retailer for 4 years know, and I look at almost every quick pick sold. How many of you guys would actually play a sum 200+, and a sum below 90? Not me. Its the quick picks that put you in those ranges.

                  Sums?  Have you ever thought about studying calendars? Most months have 30 or 31 days, and everyone born since Pope Gregory monkeyed around with the calandar was born during one of those months or the weird one.  There's a chance the winner was a QP, but it's far more likely that it was somebody playing birthday numbers. It's a sure bet that the high number of 5+0 winners was because people chose their own numbers.

                  How many people would play numbers that add up to less than 90? All those people whose family was born early in the month.  How many woul dplay numbers that add up to more than 200? The smart ones who don't want to share the jackpot.

                      Have you ever seen The Matrix Revolution..........if you have figured out the movie especially the final 15 minutes....then you will figure out what it takes to make the Jackpot games your own personal playground......AT will you can make the system do things, it does not want to do. That does not mean you will hit the jackpot....but you will hit enough to keep on rolling ahead of the curve. My final hint to you comes from Choas55....."you must be willing to sacrifice to be victorious"...."in one hand you must give it all up and in the other hand you will take it ll back."........

                      If you figure that riddle out.....you'll be in for the ride of your life.

                        Actually, it's really only about $14.5 million because the $15 million is a graduated annuity. They have to dig into their set prize reserve and it comes out of future nonguaranteed jackpots, just as greater-than-expected fixed prize awards do.

                        As for the Powerball jackpot being won three draws in a row, it already happened before around this time last year as well, and that followed a string of seven $100+ million annuity jackpot runs.

                          RAYANM, you said what I was going to say.  And as far as the christmas pot, well, it only takes a couple of months for that one to get big.  So we got all of october to play around for a pot.Wink

                            I think they were both quick picks.

                              The $26 million Mega Million jackpot was hit last night too. At least we know it wasn't won by a jackpot hunter that waits until the jackpot reaches $250 before buying tickets.
