Funny, cuz \$50. is exactly what I spent on PB last night. I got out of the store and looked at the back of my play slip to see how much I could expect to win for 3+1 and was shocked that its only \$100.

Did you hit for a 3+1?

Sometimes when players are picking their own numbers, one combination is all they can come up with.  I like to play 20 lines but some time when I only want to play certain numbers, I just can't think of 20 different ways to play them.

That's where the LP 4 if 4 of 8 wheel comes in handy....

Tickets:  20

Description:  Minimum 4-number match, if 4 numbers drawn fall within your set of 8 numbers.

Input:  3, 10, 23, 28, 36, 38, 47, 51

Yes I did X, thanks. I rode the "3" like a rented mule and had it on everyong one of the 41 lines I played. Netted about \$60. or so in profits on that draw......

I have been wanting to jump on the 10 and was only waiting for the 3 the come in, so Im hoping the "10" will hit much sooner than the 14 or so draws I had to wait for the 3....

Im quite happy about marking the bonus number "10" on my play slips now instead of the "3"....   It seemed like a long time to use "3" after 14 draws, even though I ended up with BETTER ODDS by a 3 to 1 margin.

I once tried wheeling numbers, even downloaded an older copy of CoverMaster but I soon learned wheeling didn't fit my style of play.

For tonight's drawing I've picked 26 core numbers and 21 bonus numbers from which to pick lines for tonight's drawing.  Now all I have to is enter these numbers in my RNG with parameters that covered 95% of all previous winners and see what comes out.

I also want you to try and Shoot out the  Red Star

with the automatic  B-B Gun       (it's the closest thing to a Machine Gun  I guess I'll get)

Once you Shoot Out  the  Red  Star, .....

You'll be ready to Burn the Dragon into your  Forearms

and then  .... Powerball itself  ,,.... Mabey
