Changes to Powerball Game
On the 18th January 2012 the Powerball draw will now use 35 powerballs
instead of 39, this effectively makes the Powerball a new game and draw
results will start anew from this date.
Make sure you use your program to
check any of your entries before you do the following changes.
You need to make changes to the powerball game definition to ensure the
program selects and checks against the new ball set. To do this, select
File > Configure Game > Powerball
In the section where it says Number of bonus balls in bonus ball pool
(currently 39) change this to 35 and save your changes.
Repeat by selecting File > Configure Game > Powerball and select
the Winning Cominations tab - check the following entries
And click Save Winning Lines
Select the Draw Days tab and select Sat and Wed and save the changes
The new game will now be configured. Note that all downloadable draw
results will start anew from the new game. You will also need to change
your printing definitions if you use the program to print your
playslips. Once you have made these changes do not download the results
for Powerball until 20th Jan, otherwise you may get the old result
files which will cause problems with the stats display.
After the 20th
any problems with powerball game will clear providing the changes above
have been made. Please also make sure you delete any entry files you
have for the old game and create new ones for the new balls sets -
otherwise you may be trying to enter draws using the wrong powerball
Over the next few days the program installation files will be updated
to take into account the new game - a version change will not take
place as it is not needed.
