Bugets must be affected.

The jackpot isn't going up fast.

Lagging sales? hmm.

    Another interesting point is that, historically, sales usually are high on the run following a near-record jackpot.  However, that does not seem to be the case this time.  Sales are lower than on any other run since the Powerball-Mega Millions cross-selling agreement (in absolute number of tickets sold).  The first three rolls have been the minimum $10 million increase.

      I am playing less, I am playing less 3 digit also, sometimes you get burned out.

      Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

      For a lead role in a cage?

        Better start checking everything to scrape together some more... couch, car, chairs, the lint trap.

        they need that money to fund another jackpot; you most likely won't win.

          We used our last winnings from MN Gopher 5 on the Mega Millions.

          Sorry Powerball.
