                Wow, your "giganto" sounds much bigger than my "whopping".   Yes Nod

                Cash is the only option, and much better than annuity, so annuity really doesn't count at all.  So cash deserves "giganto".  :)  It'll roll, cash $37m.

                  And Roll wins it this time around, now $60M.

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

                  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.

                      Sometimes I even astound myself with the accuracy in my predictions.

                      As can easily be documented, I predicted it would either hit in Tennessee or roll.

                      And my prediction was 100% accurate.

                      Amazing? In a word - yes.

                      No questions, please, I'm trying to avoid the limelight.

                      Go on about your business now and forget this ever happened.

                            I say roll,cause  at 50 mil. or less it only hit 2 times in 2011,

                        and now of course its a 2$ game.

                        w/ the same odds as MM i think ppl. will go w/ 127 mil Jp on MM,

                        vs.50 mil on PB. less tix sold = less likely to hit.

                         last time i asked this on 2/22 it was 78% roll,21% hit

                        give your reasons if you like.

                        The February 25, 2012 Powerball Jackpot of $70 Millions was won in WESTCHESTER NEW YORK ( Quick Pick ).

                            YOU HAVE TO BE IN IT TO WIN IT.

                            LOTTERY STOP LOSS LIMIT= Spend whatever you can afford.  The Jackpot level is a personal choice.

                            "WHICH HAS THE BETTER CHANCE OF WINNING: COMPUTER PICKS OR PLAYER PICKS?

                            About 70% to 80% of purchases are computer picks. About 70% to 80% of winners are computer picks. Perhaps just one of those weird coincidences?"

                            "HOW COME THE ONLY JACKPOT WINNERS ARE FROM THE [EAST - WEST - NORTH - SOUTH - CITIES - RURAL AREAS]? HOW COME ONLY [WHITE, BLACK, TALL, SKINNY, YOUNG, OLD] PEOPLE WIN?

                            Powerball is a random game that knows nothing about who buys a ticket or where a ticket is purchased. There really is no white/black/old/young/rich/poor, etc.] button on the machine. If one draws a box around some group of players (eg., state border, hair color, shoe size), then that group of players will win in proportion to their play. If the defined group buys 10% of the tickets, then they will win 10% of the prizes - on average and over a reasonable period of time. But that does NOT mean that you have a better chance of winning in a bigger box - you then just have more folks to play against. The Law of Large numbers explains how random expectations become truer as the number of occurrences increases. So, if players in a particular group buy 8.6754% of the tickets, then we will find, if the number of occurrences (prizes awarded) are large enough, that those players win 8.6754% of the prizes. This is definitely true for the low-tier prizes where there are large numbers of winners. With 12 to 15 jackpot winners in a year, we would expect that these percentages can get out of sync with sales from time to time, but as the number of jackpot winners continues to increase, we will find that the percentage numbers move closer and closer to being the same number. Try this experiment. Flip a coin four times. You might get 75% heads - or even 100%. You would not expect to get excited about that. With only ten flips, it can happen. But then flip it 1,000 times (no cheating). You will come much closer to the statistical expectation of 50% heads. If you hit 75% heads after 1,000 flips, then something is wrong. It really does NOT make any difference where you buy your ticket. It is you a against the draw machine."
