February "06" was the largest Powerball jackpot to date, won by eight Nebraska meat workers. ($365 million). With the new structure and added ticket cost, doe's anyone think that this record will fall? How soon? It's already at $170 million now!   Banana

When (if ever) or at what jackpot level will you reluctant players start forking over $2 to play?    What?    Roll Eyes

    I'm going to go out on a limb and say 6 months. It has only been 16 day's into the new Powerball and it is practically half that already.

    If nobody hit's this Wednesday, the jackpot should climb another $50 million ($220 million).   Lep

      $2 ? Hell, I'm forkin' over $3 to play now. I want the max and that's why I'm always swingin' for the fences. That's cuz I know I might not win, but if I do, I don't wanna be thinkin' about that extra dollar I saved and the extra million I lost. I only play 2 lines so it ain't no big deal. I'm goin' for the Gusto.

        Were on the same page rdgrnr, I fork out $3 for for each of my 2 play's as well. The extra dollar you saved vrs the MILLION  you lost; priceless!  I Agree!

            I admire your optimism LottoGuyBC!

            I actually think that the jackpot could reach over one half $BILLION DOLLARS or more this year alone.  Cheers

              I recently got a new job so it's been difficult for me to find time to get to a store and get tickets since the new year started.  I'll see if I can attempt a venture this weekend.

                Hope your new job is working out well NoShame.

                It would be nice if you could pick up a few PB tic's and win for tomorrow's drawing. It would be worth the effort!  Hyper

                  If it rolls on wednesday night I think it will be around $200 million so I don't think it will climb that fast because I think that their is still people who quit playing when they raised the price.  But if it can get to $300 million in this run we will see more players come out and try their $2.  Me I like to get the most for my money so I play $3.  Good luck!-weshar75

                    $3 is the way to go. Would like very much to be the first $2 million winner.    Banana

                        Well I have not won a prize yet but I am still hopefull that I will win something.  Plus if I lose the three dollars it is no big deal because I have budgeted that money in for my lottery spending for each month.  Good luck!-weshar75

                          $12

                          Had 13 for a Powerball when it was drawn.

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Lep

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
