Looking at the powerball jackpots awarded since the inception of the $2 dollar ticket price, I couldn't find any 40 million dollar jackpot winners. Am I missing something here? Is it simply a lack of people playing because it is only a "measly" 40 million? I think it would be nice to see someone hit this, out of the radar, after this last powerball media frenzy. Cheers

      A mere $40 Million is like a slap in the face, an insult!

      I wish I had a nickel for every time I won it and turned it down.

            Powerball lost a lot of my business when it went to $2. Price doubled, in yet the odds only went down 20 million combinations, down to the same odds as Mega Millions. I'd rather chase Hoosier Lotto than I would Powerball. It's only $1, plus the odds are only about 1 in 12 million as opposed to 1 in 175 million.

                No, he meant $40 million.  That's the minimum Powerball jackpot.

                  But after the new tax rates, $40,000 is just about on the money. Thumbs Up

                    I wish that I could play Megamillions in Florida. Sadly, I gotta play those $2.00 PB tickets. Oh gotta love Florida, aren't we still counting the election ballots? Roll Eyes

                      winning Mega Millions is 1 in 175 million based on a one dollar play.

                      winning Powerball is 1 in 350 million based on a one dollar play. With those odds, I'll wait until the jackpot gets much bigger to play PB.

                              I'm in for the Mega and the drawing Saturday for local lotto and PB. I figure it's the same chances no matter what the jackpot so I may as well keep going in the hopes I win something someday I can use the money no matter what amount.
