Not at all surprised that Powerball continues to not meet expectations, I knew it was going to happen when they announced it. They keep screwing with things to try and get those massive jackpots they want and it keeps flying back in their faces. IDK how the company in charge of making this decisions couldn't be embarrassed that after all their fiddling over the last few years to try and get a record breaking jackpot, they have continued to fail..  It also doesn't help that MM is currently (well now and before the last win) higher and a ticket for that is still only a buck.

I set my "starting point" at about double of what it is for the Mega Millions at 25M cash after taxes. Which going by the current cash option would be an annuity of over 125M.

You can't predict random.

    Another jackpot won, boy, glad we didn't pay anything in to it and at $2.00 bucks a line, whew...

    Come on everyone, get it up to $10,000,000,000.00 so I can start playing again.

      yeah here it goes again.......more of the minimum increases lol. Other than the good size jackpot a little bit ago(which it has gotten up that high when the game was only $1) powerball is looking pretty dismal lately.

        The pitiful jackpot growth seems to support that perception.
