Well, I know I'm not a first time player, and I know I'm not a novice, But I could be a PALYER.....Green laughGreen laughGreen laughGreen laugh

Indeed first time palyers, are a rare breed of players that only make appearances at $500 million+ drawings!  Jester Laugh    Stooges    Jack-in-the-Box

    scrumptious info.....Guitar

    I'm a skeptic by nature...I'd bet the pot is actually closer to 600 mil if not more

    I agree that it'll b around the 600 mark by draw time... But my assumption is that it'll roll one more time just to make records!

    I wish I may, I wish I might...
               Win the Powerball jackpot THIS big night!!!

      i will buy some tickets but nothing crazy.  remember that basketball player who bought 10,000 tickets last Mega millions drawing, he didnt win.  just reminder to people who think spending more money equals winning.

      I agree, i think you're talking about charles barkley,

      I guess he's just loose w/ money,

      when he played for the 6ers he slide me a $20 tip, no big deal ?

      he pumped his own gas, on the full serve island no less.

        If it were to go up to 600, with last drawing being at 325, that's a jump of nearly 100%. Then if it rolls, this Saturday it would be at more than 1 Billion dollars.

        Odds are that it won't roll though with the majority of all possible combinations of numbers being played by tomorrow night. Sure it could happen, but odds are against another roll.

          I just emailed this to lottery post, so they can correct the time frame  -

           

          "Early Sunday morning, just after midnight Eastern Time, USA Mega announced the new record Powerball jackpot of $425 million after nobody won in the Saturday evening drawing. Now, just 36 hours later, the jackpot estimate for Wednesday's Powerball drawing has been raised to $500 million, with a lump-sum cash option of $327.4 million."

          That should be 60 hours later, not 36 hours later.  Smile

              I already have 2 tickets. I will buy one more at the eleventh hour tomorrow.

              At 9:30 pm I shall get that last ticket and it will be a quick pick with powerplay.

              And I will refrain from checking it until after they have announced the results and the winners by state listed.

              It's a futile effort.

                  Talk to a financial adviser. You would really have to do some serious stream lining.

                      I don't trust financial advisers.If they're so good at their jobs,why aren't they retired & living on a south pacific island instead of working for a living?

                        Same thing I say about psychics! YOUR lucky numbers? I don't want lucky numbers. I want the winning numbers.

                          is not the cutoff time 9 p.m.?

                          i wonder if this stupid cutoff time might account for about 100 million in lost sales.

                          Thinking of...

                            Varies from state to state. In FL, the cut-off time is 10 o'clock.

                              In MA the cutoff time is 9:50 pm. I think it varies by state.
