Todd,

Now that Powerball has introduced the Computer Generated Power Play Number, I suggest you Down Grade all of the Powerball States in your State Lottery Report Card.

      Todd,

      Nah, Power Play is just a multiplier, not part of the drawing results, just a prize thing.  It does not determine if you win or not.  

      While I think it is preferrable to use some mechanical device to choose the Power Play, to me it is not a terrible use for a computer, since it does not affect the outcome of the game.

       

      Check the State Lottery Report Card
      What grade did your lottery earn?

        Actually, I beg to differ on this one. The Power Play does determine if you win or not. It determines if you win a larger prize or not. By your logic, a person winning a $20,000 Power Play prize is no different than a person winning a $50,000 Power Play prize; a difference of $30,000. I'd call that extra $30,000 prize a win determined by the Power Play. Wouldn't say?
