I was in complete shock that the jackpot was not won.  This is the first time it's passed $50 million in ages.  Do you all think its due to the fact that the players that it was too easy to win have already won?  I'm trying to wrap my head around this one.  I saw RI had 5+0 so I'm on my way there to buy tickets for the next drawing right now.

      Your problem is a short memory if you think a couple of months is ages.

            For most players, winning more than they spent sounds good.  Banana

                MUSL officials must have tossed champagne late last night when nobody won. They must be worried sick what inclusion of California and its lottery-mad players will do to PB lol. Maybe they will hike the odds of hitting the JP to 1:200,000,000 just to slow down Californians from trying to dominate this one too.

                  A couple of months is ages if you are a shrew, or an ant.

                    Wait a second...

                     

                    You live in Missouri, and you're going to go to Rhode Island to buy Powerball tickets?  Why IN THE WORLD would you do that?

                      Nothing should stun anyone when it comes to lottery. If you play on a regular basis, you know by now that anything can happen at anytime. Scared

                        Avoid the lottery insanity, buy a lottery ticket in RI someday.

                          The only way I'll be stunned and in disbelief on a powerball drawing is when I win it.

                          Base JP or 5 + 0

                          I play the PP

                            Im playing 5 lines on each game, each draw. Thats $15. and I cant justify an extra $10. for pp and mp

                              wants the JP or nothing.
