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

FWIW a woman in front of me at the store this morning bought a ticket in our 6/39 game and asked that it be for five days.  It was a quickpick, but she did buy it for the next five days...

    The playslip for PA Powerball has up to 26 advanced draws...So if you buy 5 lines with powerplay for 26 advanced drawings you leave with a long ticket (because it has to print all the 26 different dates) for which you payed 10x26=$260...it will last you for 13 weeks or roughly 3 and a half months...since different numbers will come out and also different powerballs your chances with the 5 lines + powerplay are good that you will get some $ back (maybe you can catch a 26 three times in a row) but the jackpot is still a long shot wether you used advance draws or not...

      TN doesn't print all the dates.. Just the range..
