      We are going to see lotto fever this week so I do think it will be hit in the next two draws one or the other.  Hopefully I win a cool million.-weshar75

            Probability says no. Sales for the last drawing were about 32 million tickets. Even if there were no repeats that's still a bit less than 20% of combinations. Based on the advertised jackpot MUSL expects only a modest increase in sales for the next drawing. Even if sales for the 10/3 drawing double there will still be less than a 40% chance of a winner. That means less than a 50% chance of a winner in the next 2 drawings.

            If sales double again for the 10/7 drawing the chance of a winner will still be only about 40%, thanks to the new matrix.

              No. I don't believe the jackpot will be win before the new matrix starts.

                  Darn, I hope it gets hit before the change, otherwise the conspiracy theories will all surface again.

                  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.

                      Well if not this week lotto fever then the 7th and 10th of october will be lotto fever.  The jackpot will be nice and plump like a turkey for thanksgiving or a christmas ham with all the trimmings.-weshar75

                            While I am hoping for a single winner in Texas<clearing throat> for Wednesday, I have a sneaking suspicion that the new odds will become apart of this jackpot run

                            Stay Positive, Believe and good things will come your way

                              I won't be playing PB once the new changes go into effect. I would love, love, love to win the big PB Jackpot this Wednesday! However, I voted no because I don't think anyone is going to win it just yet.

                              Then of course if no one wins this Wednesday, Lottery Fever will spread across the country (and PR).

                              It's fun to dream!

                              Good luck every one! Smile
