Looks like Powerball has upped estimates again.

It just keeps getting bigger and bigger. The second prize is basically a small jackpot.

It's doubtful, but maybe the media will make a big deal about the 20 people who each win the equivalent of a $2 million state jackpot.  Everyone will most likely be caught up with the $340 million winner, if there is one.

A small jackpot.....$20 million isn't small

If there was no caps can you imagine what the jackpot would be.  The annuity would be up to $385,000,000 if there was no cap to stop it from growing.  That is just insane.  haha

True.  And, can you imagine if it were Mega Millions instead of Powerball?  Because the Mega Millions states have a much larger population than the Powerball states, we could easily be talking about a $400 million jackpot.

I wonder how high it will have to get until the Match 5 is capped? Green laugh

Haha.  This is, after all, a record Match 5 Bonus payout!  Alert the press!

Even after the 20 million, I would never be able to shake that "what if" feeling. If only I would have matched one more ball...What a huge difference between one more little ping pong ball. A $320 million dollar difference. Not to say that 20 is not good.
