Why do they keep toying with it? now, they don't list the estimated cash value OR have a link where you can watch the drawing video...

at least they still have the textfile of the draw history in drawn order, but as always they can be several DAYS in updating that.

Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

    I think they are still not done updating their website completely.  It says "Please bear with us while we impove our site.  Thank you for visiting powerball.com."  I'd give them a week.  I think the new design definitely looks better than the old one.

      ... just as long as they include the "watch the drawings" page and the estimated cash value.

      they used to have a very simple "number of winners" page that lited the complete total number of winners in each prize tier, they changed it to include a breakdown by state (and by regular vs. powerplay)... but never included the total... in order to keep that data, you now have to add up all the tiers for all 26 members...so there is some reason for concern if that data is important to you...hopefully they don't lose any content for the sake of appearance.

      it depends on what data you use to aid in filtering, as the number of PB only winners is a good indicator of when the jackpot was about to be hit when it was big... not a guarantee, but 70% accurate. Also, the drawing video was a one-stop source to fill in estimated jackpot and draw order data.
