I was on Powerball website. They have some news on peoples winning over 100 millions on Powerball. Why there no news part on front for Powerball lately? It is big news. It like it just Mega Millions news lately.

    Are you reading the news correct?  PowerBall hasn't had a $100M jackpot since 05/03/08.

      Because it rarely goes high enough anymore to generate any news.

        No one seems to care unless it goes over 100M or the winner has a shady past... Hell, even with that last guy it barely got any press. I don't even recall seeing anything about him on TV. Usually the kneejerk blowhards on the 24/7 news channels would've been all over this. But since the jackpot wasn't high enough it got kind of swept under the rug.

        You can't predict random.
