    I would have gladly split it with you, Gamer Mom.  (only if we both got the winning numbers, that is!)

    I skipped PB tonight.  I had some unexpected medical bills and I'm not working right now.  Ironically, I usually pick 22 for the PB & would have won at least $9.

        Hey, ain't that weird, I pick 22 too (it's my age). And I did end up winning 12 dollars ($4 x 3) matching my age, and my mom's age for one of the white balls. Glad someone from my real home state finally won. Maybe it's someone I used to know.

          I'm shocked there was a Florida PB winner this soon. It usually takes a year or two.

Good, bad or otherwise. You'll maybe get lost in it, tied up in it a little bit, but if you work your way through that the real you shows up, I think. Maybe what's at your core deep down, maybe that comes out. Maybe that's what it's about." Mike Pace

            Why?  Florida often has record sales.  There are over 18.2 million people living in FL (not to mention all the illegal immigrants) and it's a popular tourist destination too.   Anyway, if it's random, why would it matter?

                    TALLAHASSEE, FL -- The Florida Lottery on Sunday announced the first Powerball winner in Florida from Saturday night's drawing.

                    One lucky ticket matched all five numbers and the Powerball in the Oct. 3 drawing. The ticket was sold at the Sandlake Chevron Food Mart on West Sandlake Road in Orlando.

                    The winning ticket entitles the holder to the $189 million jackpot. The Florida Lottery retailer will receive a bonus incentive of $80,000 for selling the top-prize winning ticket.

                    More than 144,000 Florida players won prizes in Saturday night's drawing. Two players matched four numbers plus the Powerball to win $10,000 each.

                    The next Powerball drawing will be Wednesday at 10:59 p.m. The jackpot is $20 million.

                          It's interesting that any time a new state joins PB the win.

                            so they should join with the intention of NOT winning??? Crazy

                              Statistically, it takes some time before a jackpot is won in a state that just joined.
