On November 28,2012, PowerBall had a $425M jackpot and sold $563M worth of tickets for that drawing.  My first statement was incorrect and my prediction might have been off too.

the final jackpot was $590.5 million. So much for breaking mega millions all time record of $656 million.

    RJOh,

    No biggie, I just rememberd the MM jackpot was March of 2012 because the Illinois winner (1 of 3) was from not too far from where I am.

    I wonder if we could say since the $425M PB jackpot brought more online to LP than the $656M MM jackpot that there's more interest in PB?

    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.

      That reminds me of the blonde who worked at the M&M factory. She got fired cause she tossed all the W&W's away. Green laugh

      Some bosses are very fussy.

      I remember when I was a carpenter putting siding on a house and my boss was watching me as I'd hammer a nail in and throw a nail away and hammer another nail in and throw the next one away and so on as I went along.

      When he saw all the nails on the ground he asked me why the hell I was throwing nails away.

      I explained to him that about half of the nails had the heads on the wrong end.

      He fired me anyway.

        I suppose it depends a lot on what else is going on at the time.  I thought the last drawing would draw a record breaking crowd but it didn't.

          I didn't realize until later that I could have used those nails on the other side of the house.
