what's really discouraging, is:  

when the odds are 250,000:1

and you win and they only pay you 1500dollars

even the winners are losers.

    With 50 PowerBall tickets, I can guarrantee at least a $3.00 win everytime that you play. Have you considered doing this? Get 10 five-draw play slips; on each of the white ball sections, mark the Quick Pick box; on the Powerball sections, play each of the powerballs 1 to 42, and on the last 8 remaining Powerball sections, mark the Quick Pick box. You're going to get the Powerball at least once, guaranteeing at least a $3.00 win. And in fact you increase you're odds of winning the Powerball from 1:146Million to better than 1:3.56Million.

    Now you can improve on this system by picking your own white ball numbers, but always play all of the powerball numbers at least once.

    Money can't buy you happiness, but I sure could afford the misery that it brings! Wink

      Cover every Powerball for one combination and on the extras pick the same Powerball number. At least covering every Powerball will result in a win every time.

        The very first PowerBall play slip would look like this:
