Are there any things you would have done differently?

Perhaps lowering your wager,  joined a pool instead,  taken advice from someone who did come out ahead? 

Personally:  Would have played less- forked over $60 & got under $20 in return. All in all " Nothing ventured,  nothing gained." Soldier On People- the best is yet to Come!"

    Yeah. I would have played the winning numbers.

          No, I have no regrets on how I played.  I stuck with my action plan and did not deviate from it.  Have my tickets for this weekend so back to business as usual.

            Do you think that the recent Powerball JP will create more players who will then increase the next JP's much quicker or do you think that most people are all burned out from the lottery thus the next draw will have average/poor sales?

              Play less money when the jackpot gets that high.   I still see even more people in same places that normally win the jackpots playing with more money to get more tickets.

                mmmmmm, JoshUK,  I would have to say no for the jackpot to increase any faster.  I think some people are burnt out on seeing the same places hitting the jackpots.

                Another large jackpot will go to New York, Florida, Ca. or Texas.

                    It's going to happen again.   Perhaps in the spring/ summertime.   The way things are going in this economy that is not good at all.

                     

                    This past week we're learning more about these winners.  At least two of them.

                      We need a 40M$ winner this Saturday.  Just to stir the pot.

                        If no one wins, in two months, we're going to be right back where we were. As far as the odds go, they are perfectly set. Just high enough that we will have exciting jackpots 6 times a year. Roughly speaking. I'm glad that 1.5+ billion jackpot wasn't a one time thing.

                        May the balls bounce in your favor!

                            I will wait until the 100 level or even the $200 million level playing field.
