    ouch! how did you end up without a powerball match? all QP's?

    my little $2 match 6 ticket on tuesday won me $30, I diecided to divvy it up, $10 for me, $10 for the powerball (QPs), $10 for friday's match 6... nada on the PB... not even close. I am going back to 1 my pick + 1 Qp for PB, that's it for now (until the jackpot gets into the 100M+ range).

    I was probably one of the first to complain about the match 6 game's $2 per ticket, yet so far it's the only game I am actually AHEAD on...

    goose, not enough info... how many lines would need to be played? I would say the cost of 3 tickets, everybody has a chance until draw time ;-) no need to pay for the privelege...

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

        6*6*6=216 at most for tickets at most and 3*3*3=27 draw at leats for pick5 three times more for pick6 thats 80-600 draws.

        20% chance to lose..its the final expection tho but i am still making it perfect

            They were all quick picks.  Wanted to experiment to see if more tickets might be luckier, versus smarter tickets of picking my own numbers.

             

            When picking my own numbers IF there is a hit it usually occurs anywhere from 5-10 draws from when I pick the number.  This has occurred over several years of watching my own stats.  I recently posted a prediction of a FL Fantasy 5 play which hit about 5 draws after posting it which is par for the course.

             

            After the costly PowerBall experiment I simply do not spend but a couple of dollars on anything, then only if I feel that it has a good probability of hitting.

             

            Good luck to everyone!

              Posted the wrong amount of draws, the number posted hit 3 numbers 10 draws later.  Even 10 draws later is par for the course as timing is my nemisis.

              Also goose you phrased your poll on chance to win which is what we face with both PowerBall and MegaMillion.  Were you a magic genie granting 3 wishes my initial reply to you would have been different.

              Good luck to everyone!
