Not many winning..?

Also seems like not many playing with the lagging jackpot growth.

According to lottoreport sales for the $50 millon drawing were $37,177,904, but sales for the $60 million drawing dropped to $32,766,344, a drop of about 13%.

    must be the reason the jackpot is climbing.

    well keep pumping that jackpot, then it can be dumped in to my bank account at $10 Billion.

    we will keep not playing till then.

      Actually, historically, Powerball sales for Wednesday draws have been lower than sales for Saturday draws, given the same jackpot level.

        I hit $4 the first time the 7 dropped funny thing is a few other people I know hit then too, all on QPs.
        It was as if the powerball of 7 was given and selected as a 'boost' to morale.

        I don't buy any more than 3 tickets most of the time -- for PB that is. I now go out of my way to buy MORE MM tix since they are still priced as they should be.

        When the JP for PB goes really high around 150m or more I buy more tix, and we do a 4 person lotto pool at work when it's 200m or more.

        I ssimply refuse to pay too much for these.

        The real insult is when the JP only goes from 40 to 50 mill. Really???
        Is that what the extrA $1-2 is buying us?

        I've only got 2 tickets for tonite. If Im out I may possibly get one more but I doubt it. I'm still PO'd about the increase and the payouts too.

          The only reason the jackpot increases ONLY from 40 million to 50 million is because sales don't support the starting jackpot.  That is nothing new, that's the way both Powerball AND Mega Millions operate.  Of course, sales usually support the Mega Millions pot after just one rollover, whereas with Powerball, it takes three or four rolls for sales to support the jackpot.  In fact, according to the TLR, sales for last night's PB jackpot were only $29,055,550 (that's only 14,527,775 tickets, the worst in units since Florida joined PB), so that supports a CASH jackpot of only $9.29 million, and the guaranteed cash jackpot was estimated at $25 million!  I don't think there's any way Powerball can last with its current format.

            So do you think Powerball was doing better when they were still $1 per drawing?Are you saying with them doubling the price they screwed themselves?

              Maybe the MUSL will get more revenues overall, maybe not.  However, they're pretty much taking a gamble themselves.  MUSL WOULD be screwed if Powerball got a lucky string of jackpot winners on only the third draw of the run, like it did seven years ago around this time.

                Ha ha ha, Powerball got hit AGAIN, and it was ONLY on the third draw in the run!  I think I may have jinxed the MUSL with my previous post.

                    I think my powerball budget is going to nose dive, especially if its won with one ticket again.

                      Soon, nobody will play Powerball until it rolls to $100 million, which it HAS to do even if there are no tickets sold for the first six draws in any run.
