As far as I know, there's never been a $400,000,000 jackpot yet, let alone $500,000,000.
Also, since this is about Powerball, considering Powerball has a multiplier (Power play), how can the pool possibly be divided equally among all 5 + 0 winners?
Sounds like a "contingency" plan for something that this particular lottery is figuring will never happen.
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.
