How is it possible that no one won?  Since MM was won PB should have been "impossible to lose"

It's even more shocking that Indiana lost.  Good thing I didn't waste gas driving there to buy tickets!

      Here's how;

      Probability of winning PB: 1 in 292 million.

      Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

      Lep

      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.

        Yes, but it should have been way too easy for someone to win because Mega Millions was just won.

            Jjtheprince, you are not making any sense.  Two different games and neither one is easy to win.  How are they easy to win?

                He (she?) never answers that question.

                 

                I too thought there'd be a winner yesterday, but I wasn't feeling very lucky, so I didn't even buy a ticket. Maybe I will for the next one.

                  Well, they just go up and buy tickets and BOOM they win at will.

                    I really didnt play PB much until I saw how many people were winning in early 2015:

                     

                    2/11

                    3/14

                    3/21

                    3/25

                    4/11

                    4/18

                    6/3

                    6/20

                    7/4

                    8/1

                    9/30

                    11/4

                    Put me down as one who prefers more winners and smaller jackpots.

                          MM rolled 35 times... A new record right? 

                          I wouldn't call that easy... 

                          Maybe easy to loseLOL

                            I like to watch the drawing about an hour to an hour and half after the live drawing on the internet since it is not broadcast were I live in mcminnville, oregon.  One thing I have noticed is the annuity is not even making it to the estimated jackpot lately.  Out of the last three drawings two of them have come up short so I think that powerball is going to like being the only big jackpot now because they should not be falling short this wednesday night of $311 million.-weshar75

                              I made a prediction on the mm that it would have been won this week after the 4th.  I was right and the dollar amt was nearest.  PB is a different story. 

                               

                              I too with it was hit.  When the lottery commission is ready for a winner they will do it.
