The odds are 1:292,000,000 so I'm guessing (with all the tickets sold for this drawing) there will be 2 winners.  I will also guess one winner will be in Arizona and the other will be in Florida.  Don't ask me why, just a guess.  LOL

    Last time PB was at this level was before the matrix change, so a direct comparison is iffy, but I'll give it a shot.

    For a jackpot of $395M, there were 73.1 million tickets sold. If the same number are sold for this drawing, that gives about a 77.8% chance of no winner. The probability of exactly one is 17.2%, and the probability of 2 or more is 4.9%.

     

    (I hope you're right about one in Arizona. Big Grin)

            Three winners, NY, FL, and CA just to give some people here at LP a real thrill.

            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.

                        Yeah, 2 sounds about right, but I'd say 3 winners should surface on Wednesday, with all the greed going on around us every day.  Yeah, ok,  I'd be included in that tally, until I go broke trying.

                        We need a winner by Wednesday.  And look, if you should be the Wednesday's sole winner, please give me .75 million cash, free of obligation (just for me to buy a half decent house and a RAM truck).


                        Should I be the sole winner then, I've planned to make several donations.

                          No, no please,   Let's nip this thing in the bud!

                          No more elevating the jackpot.  It MUST be won this Wednesday.

                           

                          (are you nuts?  I don't know about you lately. Not wanting to play.  Hoping someone wins it now
                          And now  "nip this thing in the bud" ? ? ? )

                              I'll be that winner in Kansas. But then again, I'd claim anonymously.

                              May the balls bounce in your favor!
