I'm not going to downplay this Powerball because he was upfront and transparent with how this power ball works. But just to let everyone know the chances of winning this lottery. There are 5 numbers that can be 1 through 16. this means there are 16 possible numbers per slot. You have 16 to the power of 5 chances of winning, that is 1 in 1,048,576 chance in winning per draw and a 1 in 64 chance per draw of just getting the cost of your ticket back. Just to put that in perspective, you have a greater chance of being struck by lightning this year than winning this Powerball. Good Luck all.
......Thanks for that xD

Yes, indeed.  I made it with better odds than a normal power ball since we have a lower player base.  I looked at the balances of the richest players and made some calculations to try to make it as fair as possible.

I may reduce the cost of the power ball ticket if no one wins before July and will credit people with more power ball entries.

Also, please all that have bought a power ball ticket submit your numbers.  It saddens me that so many people that bought some aren't using their entries.

For people who don't understand how the Powerball works, you have to submit your Powerball numbers to have a "chance" to win. Simply buying a ticket doesn't mean anything until you submit your guesses.

I am going to update the power ball numbers tomorrow and one draw, sorry for being late again.  I am going to be busy for the next month so I may not post the power ball numbers daily but weekly.

Since no one has done the required for the power ball, I haven't been drawing numbers for the power ball.

Also, the one draw winner of last month is Star_Otter_365.  Please claim your reward within a week.  You won with a pot of 102,000 making it so you can get a 91,800 lump sum or six payments of 16,150 for the next six months for a total of 96,900.

I will not be drawing for May since I need to get my finals in order.

Dragon, when we are both on I will pay out your second payment of 41,800.
