    I hope I win it tonight.Let Florida start off playing Powerball with the new $20 million base amount.Why should Floridians start playing Powerball with a huge jackpot that they didn't contribute to?

        Actually they will have contributed to part of the jackpot for next Wednesdays jackpot,whether it rolls or not.They just won't have contributed to the $90 million that might rollover from tonights jackpot.Millions of people have contributed to get it to the $90 million and darn few of them are from Florida.I'd rather see it hit by someone that has invested in it from one of the current Powerball states.Like me!

            So you should be the one to win?    LOL

             

            Does this mean that someone who wins in a state with a smaller population should take a cut?

              It means,in a perfect world,that someone who has been playing Powerball during this runup to $90 million dollars should win it.And why not me?

                  Point taken.  But those have never been the rules of gambling.  Have you ever been to a casino?  Someone can spend all of his money plugging quarters into a slot machine.  Some people spend all night feeding a slot machine.  When that person walks away, you or anyone else can come along, put in a few quarters, and after 2 minutes win a huge jackpot.   According to your rules, that isn't fair.

                    It doesn't matter anymore,the jackpot rolled.

                      If your original reply was honest you must be pissed that us Floridians are reaping the benefit of a large jackpot paid for by other players before us.  Although because her point is still valid.....it really doesn't matter.  Confused

                        All my replys are honest.I'm not pissed that Floridians are reaping the benefits of a large jackpot because no Floridian has reaped the benefits of a large Powerball jackpot,yet.Will I be upset if a Floridian wins Wednesdays jackpot?Probably,but no more upset than I will be that I didn't win it.I hope that Floridians do start winning Powerball jackpots,but I prefer it isn't the next one.

                          florida players, your one of us now , the pb folks

                          i just want to beat MM in jackpots

                          also, i think them getting in at +100m  is a good way to start out

                          all the new players be like,

                          omfg a 100m jackpot, they be addicted to it in no time

                           with the new numbers,

                          i think we have a good shot at 400m range and at last 200m range many times this year

                              With the economy being the way it is and the jackpot starting at 105M , it may take 10 or more draws before someone hits it, which means the jackpot may hit 500M before someone hits.

                              Those who use history to pick their numbers may have to wait 20 or 30 draws before there is any meaningful information in the history. Which probably means the only people playing will be mostly people playing quick picks. And with odds at 195M to one one, they will have to sell a lot of tickets before someone hits.
