We all know that after October 3, 2015, the PB jackpot becomes even harder to win, with 69 white balls to pick five from, up from 59, and 26 red balls to pick one from, down from 35.  The jackpot for this Wednesday's draw (the fourth-to-last draw under the current matrix) is $235 million.  Do you think the pot will be hit within the next four draws, or is this run rigged so that the new matrix will start with a $400+ million jackpot, so players will immediately ignore the fact the pot is much harder to win?  My vote has to be for the former, because I am playing every draw until it is won on the current run, and I will win the last pot under the current matrix!

          Maybe another record will be broken. Maybe it will break $700million.

              so 235 wednesday and 4 draws to go before the change, as much as i want to say no i couldn't because do not think the first draw under the new matrix would be 600 million

               

              if looking at past sales at this level and assuming the same amount of tickets are sold for this run the draw before the change will be one of the biggest ones ever if no one wins on 9/23, 9/26 or 9/30 (will be about 380-400 my guess is by draw time 10/3)

                  If it keeps rolling into the change then $400M-500M cash is very plausible. Don't forget that in addition to worse odds the jackpot allocation is increasing about 5%, which means jackpot will grow larger faster (assuming sales stay constant or increase). I would anticipate a slight uplift in sales from the increased advertising near launch of new matrix, not to mention the potential higher jackpot at that time.

                  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?

                    No one can know for sure but I think it would get quite interesting here at LP  if the JP gets pumped a few more times and on the last drawing with the current matrix there are split winners in NY, FL, TX, and CA!

                    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.

                        How about 4 winners and toss little Rhodie into the mix!  We haven't had a winner here in almost forever!  Wink
