I have been out of touch recently because of some personal matters, and have not been able to maintain some of my data files.  In particular I missed the announced cash value for the powerball drawn yesterday.  Can someone inform me what the cash value was for yesterday's 5/19/04 drawing?

Thanks in advance.

      According to http://www.lotterybuddy.com/powerball/ is was $12.3 million.

      Does anyone know of an official website that publishes the cash value after the draw. The official Powerball site publishes the estimated cash value before the draw. The annuity and cash value are usually adjusted after the draw when the final sales figuues are known.

      Thanks,
      Jake

        You would trust a site called "lottery buddy" more than Lottery Post??  I'm not sure where "buddy" gets their info, but here at Lottery Post it comes from MUSL.

          get the jackpot actual value right from the source at MUSL... it opens as a WORD document....

          it also sometimes lags a draw or 2 behind... also lists the number of winners, states and amounts won (if hit)...

          http://www.powerball.com/powerball/pblist.doc

          an added bonus... numbers are in Drawn Order...

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

            The response does not answer my question. The referenced document does not contain the cash value of the jackpot and it only lists the estimated jackpots and not the exact jackpot values.

            Good luck,
            Jake

              How does the lottery officals come up with the cash value? Some where there must be a mathematical formula which we all could use to figure this  out for ourselfs?

                Thanx to all who supplied the missing data.

                It is generally not possible to accurately back calculate the cash value from the annuity value since this value is a function of interest rates, and unless you work in the financial sector, you are unlikely to know the rates used for the calculation.

                I hope I will be able to resume the "Probability of a rollover" thread soon.
