      They are going to pink and purple balls with bright yellow numbers on them

       

      What change are you talking about?

          Ignore the first posts in the thread, as that planned matrix was tossed due to the MMC disaster.

          Latest version starts here: https://www.lotterypost.com/thread/283852/4132234

          Bottom line is that the jackpot odds are getting worse, nearly all prizes are staying the same, and a 10X multiplier is being added to PowerPlay, conditional on the jackpot size. Jackpot is also getting more of the sales allocation pie, and the lotteries hope that the higher odds + higher share will increase jackpot sizes frequently (and lead to the maniacal frenzy we all love to talk about on LP).

          If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
          If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

              Once again powerball is screwing its players in order to try to drive up jackpots but luck is luck if your numbers come up they come up I think I'm going to go mega millions I'm done with powerball
