You think they are going to roll out new powerball signs now?
The current ones only have 3 digits!

Some of the stats are amazing.

16 people won the second prize (1 or 2 million depending on if you choose the Power Play option).

18,315,365 winners in all win a total of $159,080,965.
Do were those 16 ppl really happy or really upset that they were one number off? Cant imagine that getting as your numbers are looking awfully right

I think winning a million probably over rides the frustration of being 1 number off.
If you're one number off and win $10 that's another story.

You can pay an extra dollar and then all the prizes except for the jackpot get doubled.

I read that there was a 75% chance of there being a winner in Saturday's powerball game.

Nobody won bc they didn't choose the right numbers, or is it a conspiracy to create the largest jackpot ever for the sake of publicity so they fixed the game? After reading about this lottery boss man it makes u wonder how often fixing the game happens http://www.bbc.com/news/technology-32301117

As for me, I'll save my $2 and enter the hgtv dream home sweepstakes for free

Q: why do people buy multiple tickets with powerplay as opposed to additional tickets?

Maaser? I would think about 70-80% should go to charity.

okay  --- it's worth it if you just win the $7. Then it turns it into $14.
