No, they don't give a crap they are living the great life. I would not feel "jipped" at all I would be too busy having fun to worry about future PB drawings. You are lucky to have won period. Only a greedy idiot would even think about that. They should be be glad they won. They are probably glad as it is A LOT less money to worry about and plenty to last if they are smart. Also not worldwide news.

    Did you read what I wrote? I thought I was quite clear in what I wrote. I'll repeat it one more time. Julie Leach is the last person to win under that last matrix. After they changed the matrix, 9 draws went by before someone one in Tennessee won winning $144 million. The question is, now that the Powerball jackpot is at $1.3 billion, with the same 1 in 292 million odds, do you think the winner in TN feels jipped?

    No. 

    At least I wouldn't. 48 million take-home would be more than enough to do everything I want.

      Not at all. If they had changed the matrix a week earlier they may not have won anything. They had better odds of winning then, then we have now.

          trucker,

          Got it now but it would have helped had you said prior to this drawing.

          The Amazing Kreskin might not have got it the way the OP stated.

          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.
