No one has been hitting it lately & I have a theory as to why.  The people who have played and already won jackpots that were too easy for THEM to win, they are now no longer in the game which leaves the rest of us.  PB and MM are definitely NOT easy for any of us posting here at LP because obviously none of us have won.

Exactly, for some people its just easy money. Buy some tickets and win.

          $80 million PB for tonight, and I'm getting a ticket.  My 31st birthday is tomorrow; this jackpot would be a great present!

                  Well, I matched only TWO numbers, and not one of them was the Powerball.  Jackpot at $90 million for Wednesday, which means it will be at $100 million next Saturday if it's not won Wednesday (and I'm not playing this Wednesday or next Saturday regardless of what the jackpot does).

                  On a related note, if the jackpot is won Wednesday, it will still be underfunded by an estimated $5 million.  Since the "guaranteed" cash jackpot, assuming interest rates don't change, is $57 million, and estimating from sales from the last $90 million draw on top of actual sales for the first five draws, the "allocated" cash jackpot should be about $52 million.

                        And now that there's a $100M JP the shark like-feeding frenzy will start.

                        Stay tuned for the self jinxing, claiming the jackpot, "This one is mine", etc...ad nauseam.

                        Tune in for the fantasies of buying mansions and high end Italian sports cars with money not yet won.

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                          I had a feeling it would be PowerBall.

                          Now let's see which state wins the Jackpot, two more months to go before

                          California joins in the fun, I really think they will get a Jackpot win by the end of

                          this year.

                            The Powerball jackpot is finally large enough to start paying for itself.  Based on prior sales at the $100 million jackpot level, the cash jackpot, if it were not derived from the guaranteed annuity, would be around $64 million.  I still bet it will rise by only $10 million for the next two draws though, assuming no wins.
