I wonder how many jackpot winners had their winning number played up for several draws.   Does anyone know if that has ever been mentioned?

    tntea, do you mean they bought advanced play on their tickets? I have thought of doing that myself, instead of wondering about buying tickets weekly.Dance

      Yes that is what I mean.   When I traveled to MI in March,  I bought advance plays along the way.

        That would be interesting to find out. I've never read or heard about a jackpot winner playing the same number with advanced plays.

          We've read where some jackpot winners have played the same set of numbers for years and play slips give the option of playing quick picks for the next 10 drawings too. According to my favorite lottery clerk, many people play in advance so it's probably happened many times.

              i wouldn't think they would mention that lil tidbit of info. Discourages ppl from purchasing tickets on play day. The day when they have the most sales. (IMO)

                I think there was a news article not to long ago about it.

                Someone sent their money in to the state lottery for a years worth of plays. The lottery got the money and numbers ahead of a drawing. They did not process it until after the drawing .

                The winning numbers came out after they received the money and numbers and before it was processed. There was a big stink about it.

                    you mean like buying quick picks in advanced...Great idea....

                    I think that will boost sales, because there are many cases if not most cases where people don't want to drive to their local gas station or local grocery store to buy lottery tickets because of the gas prices...

                    By allowing the play in advanced you are allowing people to save more gas and buy the tickets when they have the chance...

                    I've also noticed that when people are buying quick picks for the lottery, they are buying something else like cigarettes, alcohol, potatoe chips, etc, which means that that their first mission when going to the store is to buy cigarettes, alcohol, potattoe chips, beer, put gas AND NOT LOTTERY TICKETS...LOTTERY TICKETS IS A: "oH I HAPPENED TO BE ON THE STORE SO LET ME BUY 2 DOLLARS WORTH OF LOTTERY TICKETS...

                    I don't think finding out if any powerball winner had played his tickets in advanced is important...They should have where people can play Powerball/MegaMillion tickets 1 month in advanced...

                    i am not you but if i was you i will go to this link:

                    http://www.powerball.com/pb_press_contacts.asp

                    or here: http://www.megamillions.com/contact_us.asp

                    and send each one of them an email telling them why don't they put advanced play in powerball/MegaMillions....

                    you either do it, or i'll do it...

                    How much is gas over in the States is it 4 dollars a gallon? People can't be playing with gas with that price...

                    lottery retailers should have like a special button that they press that allows people to play Powerball tickets in advanced...The State lottery should implement them....

                      Illinois has advanced play and subscriptions. you have to have an Illinois mailing address for subscriptions.

                      For the Pick 5 you can subscribe for 91, 182, or 364 drawings, for thje Pick 6 it's for 38, 78, or 156 drawings.

                      I don't know about the advanced play tickets, but as for subscriptions, I ve been getting the daily e-mail list of winners for the Pick 5 game for almost four years and in all that time have seen maybe three subscription winners.

                      In some states, if you play an advanced play ticket and it has a winner with games remaining, you can cash it and they'll issue a new ticket for the remaining games. So if someone did that with one game left, and hit a jackpot, that ticket would appear to have been for one game, but it was actually an advanced play.

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

                      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.

                          Missouri is 15 for PB.

                          Isn't it kind of odd that the PB states have different number of drawings allowed for advanced play for the same game?

                          We have a friend that is always asking us to play a ticket for him when we go to Missouri, if the jackpot is up - but- he never wants to play advanced play because he can't stand the thought of someone hitting a jackpot and then the rest of the plays on his ticket are going from the start point.

                          But then if it doesn't get hit, he wants some0one to make another trip to get another ticket.

                          My attitude towards that is he had his chance.

                            I am always curious if the line that is played for one draw on a qp might come in three draws later....

                              Texas has ten also. When I'm out of town, I most always buy as much advanced tickets as I can afford. My thinking is it will give me a head start as no one in my smallish hometown would suspect it's me.
