This is the FOURTH WIN at the 50 million dollar level. Florida won this lap and no, it wasn't me - lol.

 

Is there an invisible QP strategy we don't know about What?

    Any specifics on how the fund these guranteed jackpots.

    They should have a butt load of change from that record jackpot.

      It feels like the twilight zone with all these PB jackpots being smashed right, left and center. I said it some other listing that players are excited and that spells doom to MUSLs bottom line. My aim is second prize with pp. That would be cool.

      That money's gone fo ever

        I don't have any concrete information on sales, but since the implementation of this new matrix, the jackpot doesn't start paying for itself until it gets up to around 90 - 100 million.

          Yes you did! 

          I didn't support your viewpoint at the time, but you certainly proved me wrong. Sales aren't particularly higher than usual so I am still trying to grasp why players are meeting with so much success...

              According to a rolling headline at LottoReport website, Since Dec5, the PB prizes have been under fund by $59M and the states are hurting.  If the states are responsible for all prizes other than the jackpot then it's the states with the million dollars winners that are hurting the worst.

              I'm surprised the PB payout structure hasn't changed to correct the situation, I suppose they will when California is added.

                lol. Im sure there is already a back room agreement that CA. will come out ahead of all the others states no matter what. They (CA) have a way of quenching their thirst for cold hard cash...........

                    It depends on how you define "paying for itself"?

                        Just a thought about those 50 million dollar winners.....

                        Back when PB was at a record high, many people bought one ticket stretching over the next few weeks.  The winners might be coming out of those people. 

                        Like I said, just a thought, but I am sobering up a little.  I might change my mind when all three brain cells have recovered.

                            People like Boney who come out for the huge JP, and the huge JP ONLY will ONLY play for a single draw.... 

                            Those people have even devised a system for avoiding a split JP called EV.............

                              California will probably retain its pari-mutual status as they did with MagaMillions and only pay prizes out of actual sales rather than expected sales over the long term even if it's less than other states are paying out occasionally.

                              Who knows, maybe other states will adapt the same policy.
