Woke up this morning to check the powerball numbers(didnt get any right), saw they moved the jackpot up 20 million from 80 to 100 million(nice whole number) but did notice there were only 500,911 winners(wonder if the 911 means something) and only 1 person from N.M matched all 5 numbers(powerball site says for $200,000.) I thought that 5 numbers was supposed to get you a million now ??(scratching head)....Perhaps I misread the new "change" coming

    You should give web sites a chance to update all their content to reflect the changes.  It's a LOT of work to find and change everything.  I've been spending all morning on it myself.

      Ya know Todd, you maybe right.... It does take alot of effort to change 200,000 to 1,000,000. After all..... Monday was a holiday, having all day Tuesday and Wednesday probably was not enough time either. Lets hope the new year brings a big win for many of us soon !!Patriot

        No, it's not as easy as changing one number.  There are hundreds of changes that are needed throughout a web site.  Thanks for your understanding.

          No sir or ma'am--- those #'s don't mean anything at all.

          The only number that matters is that you are a winner or loser,

          Lots of losers with the "New" "Improved" "Powerball"

          Yeah, PB needs to update their website.
