    It seems that some states win powerball but Illinois is not one of those states.  I live in Illinois and I am considering not play powerball anymore.  Am I right?

    I put a temporary curse on Illinois a while back and forgot about it, sorry about that.

    I'll take it off later today sometime if I get a chance.

      LOL, I knew that was you who put the curse on Illinois, had your signature all over it.

        Why?

        Quinn.

        Just kidding.

        Illinnois had the Big Game which became Mega Millions for a loing time before states could have both Mega Millions and Powerball. Illinois hasn't had PB for all that long compared to the original PB states.

        Yep... IL got powerball in Jan 2010... however, we are the fifth most populous state in the US.  As Todd indicated, people win, not states...  Pennsylvania leads the pack with 15 big winners and has had powerball since 2002... don't quote me on the winner stats here. 

        You'd think IL would have more than just 1 JP winner by now... same population as Pennsylvania.

        Indiana is next with 11 big winners and has half the population of IL and PA, but PB has been around since 1990 in IN.

        Now that California is joining the ranks with a population of 37 million... hmmm wonder where the next tide of PB JP winners will come from?

              You are right that some states win the Powerball more frequently.

              That would lead you to conclude that some states don't win as frequently.

              Therefore logic would dictate that you stop playing the Powerball immediately, in order that the same states that always win, will continue to win.

                LOL

                I actually feel kinda bad about putting the curse on them in the first place, dallas.

                It was so silly on my part as I look back now at the circumstances.

                It was during another one of their governor's corruption trials.

                It was Rod "Blago" Blagojevich.

                I just got so darn tired of seeing him on tv with that goofy hairdo hanging in his face that I just flipped out one night and put a curse on the whole dam state that said they would never win Powerball again.

                I guess it was really uncalled for if you think about it.

                So I'm gonna take the curse off tomorrow if I get around to it.
