Final clarification before bed.  I will play the Powerplay option (even though I never have EVER) and will payout only if it hits 5+0 or higher. 

Still need one more number.

It's a nice gesture, Destined, but are you sure you want to pay five other people's taxes on splitting a jackpot? In essence, that is what you're doing- even if it's 1%.

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.

    I am for this draw.  I get your point and will revise the rules for next time.  See I've had money before, yet I've been broke, time and time over again.  I'll figure a way to write the tax off or something genius.  Money just doesn't make me happy period.  What I love is to make other people happy.  Plus I just landed a new job today so IM ECSTATIC right now.

      Confirmed.  Final Ticket #'s are 12-23-24-28-51+31. Good luck to everyone and see ya all next drawing.  I will be holding this game in the Jackpot Forum for the next one.

      -EZ

      If these numbers: 12-23-24-28-51+31 hit tonight and a hundred people played them, MM will have a fortune cookie investigation like PB did a year or so ago.

        OOOPS! These numbers were for PB, so it will be PB doing the investigation if they hit.  I still think they would make good MM numbers too, MB 31 hasn't hit in a while.

            Hey guys,

            I'm sorry that i was late on the numbers but for some reason it only showed 4 numbers that have been chosen by all of you at the time i read this.   I will be happy to delete my own number, just let me know ok?  Best of luck,  Jonstrue2u

              To clarify, I will give whoever participates 1% of the winnings only if the ticket hits for $10,000 or more.  I was only going to pay out if the ticket hit the jackpot, but that would suck for you guys if you all matched the white balls and my red ball was wrong and you got nothing.  So Im feeling generous here.  I also need to add that the 1% applies to whatever I clear AFTER ALL TAX LIABILITIES. 

              If the ticket wins $100 or less, it will be parlayed into future forum games.  I plan on doing this for every drawing in addition to the tickets I play on my own.  So for example, let's say the ticket wins $7, each player that participated in that drawing will get seven picks in the next drawing.  If the ticket doesn't win, then the game starts all over with a $1 ticket and new posters will be able to play. 

              As far as the odds go, probably one in a bazillion.  Just trying to have a bit of fun here.  No one should complain, this a freeroll and you have nothing at stake.

              "As far as the odds go, probably one in a bazillion."

              The odds are about the same as any other combination if we exclude the "good vibes" factor. We have at least 6 people hoping their number is drawn and don't forget all the other people that might play that combination too.

              It only cost a buck.

                    Picked 12,23,24,28,51 + 31

                    Actual 7.16.21.33.42 + 25

                    "Just a bit outside"

                    If you ask shane3 (chaos55) by people putting money on our selection, we probably swayed the actual numbers picked.
