Does anyone know the answers to the following Powerball questions.  1) When the jackpot reaches say $100,000,000.00, raising interest to a very high level, what are the total sales in all the 20+ states that have PB?  2) I understand that each outlet generates each ticket separately from the main computer.  But is the main computer made aware instantly that a certain combo on a ticket has been issued?        Pigskin.

    1)

    When PB reaches $100,000,000 the sales vary each time.  I'll give you some examples.

    Date:  04/24/04    Sales: $25,697,832(not including power play sales)    Estimated Jackpot: $103 million

    Date:  12/17/03    Sales: $23,555,449(not including power play sales)    Estimated Jackpot: $100 million

    Date:  10/11/03    Sales: $23,518,073(not Including power play sales)  Estimated Jackpot: $102 million

    2)

    Yes the main computer is made aware instantly that a certain combination of numbers has been purchased.
