I would have felt more like playing had the old rule when it reached a new jackpot level the second prize pool would get a bonus been still in play.  But since I stand little chance of winning the jackpot and playing just increases its value, I'll have to give it some thought before even picking some numbers to play.

You know, I am shooting for 5 and 0 with the powerplay, don't need half a billion, but a million would be nice, Just want to retire comfy. I will carefully pick the first five balls.

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

    2nd tier prize would do me well!

      I already did it carefully yesterday. It's almost making me re-think my picks. I'm debating buying in for another $20... Just not sure how I want to do it. I hear a quick pick calling $6 of it at least

              Not sure I would want the headaches of trying to manage the $500M jackpot and fighting off all the losers that come looking for a hand out either.  I may just stick with trying to win the MM jackpot if it rolls tonight.

                  Don't worry RJOh,

                  If you play the Powerball and win I'll help you manage it for a 60% cut. That should ease the pain of winning for you. White Bounce

                    Okay I think I got the right ption for you. Ladies love shoes. Buy a shoe store and you can stuff cash in the sizes that are too big or too small.

                      I agree, what I want is more time in my life and the comfort of knowing we won't be hungry when we're old, More time with my son, more time in my garden, more time for family and friends, I got today off and I am to tired to do anything meaningful, Go right back to work tomarrow, and it will go right through to Christmas eve.

                          Is there some sort of history of people betting bombard with requests for cash????

                          I have only heard it talked about here.......
