      l know its about the numbers but geez- only One winner? Quite an intro to Californians who probably went whole-hog on the PB.

      Yep

        Californians took a deep breath last night but not because they did not win the JP. Right now its relatively small but having only one ticket win 2nd place? seems a lil unfair, but we will be back, we have time.We not called the Golden State for nothing.

        Yeah, hopefully will be better next time, but hard to tell since we just started PB, what our sales level will be next draw.

        Last night, based on CA sales, we only had a 54% chance of hitting 1 2nd prize. Overall, PB should have had 3 to 5 2nd prizes nationwide, but only got 1. Previous draw, range of 2nd prize was 3 to 4 and they got 4. It's highly erratic, but to be expected.

        Next draw, best guess for sales based on most recent similar draw is 4 to 6 2nd prizes.(and there they got 10, go figure...)

          l think Californians will gravitate back to MM until the PB gets up to $150- $200 mil plus before the financial floodgates seriously open again. Currently the PB jackpot has a lower payout that the MM yet the ticket price is higher.
