With the matrix change coming to powerball in early October now you can say "Looks like that lottery win will never EVER happen." For most of us that is

So what else is new?  Most of us were never going to win a lottery jackpot even if we played the local jackpot games with 10X better odds.  There's just not enough money in the world for everyone to win a lottery jackpot.

    There was no mention of the last pb winner, a 37 y/o woman in Florida. They didnt report much about her except it was one quick pick for the 80 million dollar win. She said it wouldnt change her life much (then why play?) and she wanted to help her family and friends. See was a regular at the store where she purchased the ticket which seemed a bit  on the downside. 

    Anyways, I'm happy for her.  And if she can do it -- so can we!  Green laugh

      Just because most of us were never going to win a jackpot is no reason for me to stop trying.  I still track several games and buy tickets when I feel lucky.  Playing the lotteries and dreaming about winning is entertaining to me.

        Never? Can you imagine the Space program being shelved because of the Challenger disaster. Madam Curie died of radiation in her efforts to discover a life saving device that has helped BILLIONS. Just stop with this Never talk. .It's just a game where anyone with a ticket can win . You need to wait your turn.

          Ain't that the truth!

          Are you ever tempted to play Rolling Cash 5 applying the same strategies you used on the two 5/6 OCL wins? Tracking the daily draws can be a nightmare to system players so I guess that's the reason you don't. Right?

              The key is to remember the EXTREME high odds.......always remember that but without a ticket you aint gonna win. Not everyone will win jackpots -FACT  and the ones who win are extremely lucky. 99% of people will never win a jackpot and 1 % of people will win a jackpot. Are you part of that 1 % ?

              Big Smile

                Actually I do track RC5 but dealing with almost 4000 drawings make the workout longer and until recently all my programs were designed to deal with about 2000 combinations.  Besides With OCL, MM and PB I have a couple of days to think about doing the work outs.  With RC5 being a daily I would have only that day, stopping to think about it makes it almost impossible to get done before the drawing.

                  I started with the six number Ohio Lotto playing abbreviated wheels but thought it would be easier trying to trap five numbers when the Buckeye 5 started. Because you're playing combinations instead of numbers, it's obvious why the game with the highest jackpot is your game of choice.

                  "With RC5 being a daily I would have only that day, stopping to think about it makes it almost impossible to get done before the drawing."

                  A few years ago, I had a decent run with RC5, but accurately filling out new play slips every day got old after a few weeks.

                    While the odds are severely stack against someone winning, it's the idea of knowing others have done it by taking their dollar(or 2) and purchasing a ticket. I looked at the number of jackpot winners just on the PB list over the last 5 (10-14)years and it looks like we are averaging about 14 winners for the year. 2011 & 2014 were below that number - although we have almost as many winners that have collected in 2015 as we did in all of 2014. This doesn't include the 2nd tier prize winners of a million or more $$.
                    14 times a year, people have defied the odds and created their financial freedom. If those lucky folks beat the odds, then why can't I or you do it ? It's simple....We can...Every time we go the store and purchase that lil slip of paper with those numbers on it. We just don't know BUT we believe and it's what we want. Every time I purchase one of those tickets, I think of what I could do to help so many folks out. Not necessarily give others enough to retire, but to pay off a student loan or medical bill. Maybe a credit card, help out someone that is behind in their taxes, fill a local food pantry's shelves, put some money into a non profit cause that's near to my heart. Perhaps volunteering at a VET center, mentoring an at-risk child or participate in a Big brothers/Big sisters program.  Just my 2 cents worth.

                      Stop playing when the jackpot is low.  Wait until the cash jackpot is at least 100 million to play PB or MM.

                          I couldn't have said it better than you.

                          Good luck!

                              Well, that's still gonna cost you 20M so after the jackpot win probably.
