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

Good idea maximumfun......one of the stateophobics would be bound to say, "It's always Rhode Island" too!

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.

    I voted no because I think powerball and musl want that first jackpot of the new matrix to be big so people forget that the odds are so bad.  So come on four more rollovers and let powerball and musl have their mondo big jackpot for october.-weshar75

      I'm o.k. with it "always" being Rhode Island.  In fact - I insist!

        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!

        How in the heck is it rigged?  You think the ball machine is rigged?  lmao.  I quess you think pro wrestling is real also. 

        As to the run its always the same.  With so many goof balls picking birthday numbers we just need luck that all or most of the balls coming out of the hopper is numbers 32 and above.

          I've said it before....with the odds of these games, they don't have to be rigged.

              Jackpot will start over $300 million if no winner tomorrow. With a likely 'tipping' point of $400 million, combined with the matrix change and associated advertising....could be setting us up for the perfect storm. Anything could happen between now and then, of course, but who isn't secretly hoping it rolls and rolls? LOL

              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?

                I would like to see it roll myself but it depends on how people buy tickets over the next week.  If not that many people buy and it increases are small then I hope it rolls into the new matrix.  But if lottery players want to win the jackpot bad and they start to buy tickets I think it will be hit in the next three draws.-weshar75
