It would have been better to qualify that $175M number with a reminder that it's a varaible jackpot, one that starts out lower, but often exceeds $175M.  $50M is really no more correct than $175M.

No, actually you really can't qualify a wrong number.

Wrong is wrong little jimmy, and we really can't build on that.

Anything worth doing is worth doing right.

The Jackpot is $50 Million.

Which makes $50 Million the correct figure.

So we'll go with that for all intents and purposes.

And not to be a nitpicker but...you spelled variable wrong too.

Just saying...

      You were confusing the odds with the jackpot, James.

      You're stressed - I'm simply alert.

        Thanks for your clarifications.  To help us in future estimations, I hope you can clear up another point.

        Let's say you are in with $2 today in a Powerball pool with 499 other people.  Since today's jackpot estimate is $50M, which you so graciously pointed out above, how much would you hope to win if one of the pool's 500 tickets were to match all 6 numbers drawn?

        Thank you...

            You really should hire some help here and get some fresh air once in a while.

              I breathe fresh clean mountain air everyday, jimmy, and I ambulate exceedingly well.

              And as such, I assure you, I don't need to hire anybody from here to help me accomplish that.

              Thanks for your concern nonetheless.

              Are you feeling well?

                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.
