    What if they had a winner in the Virgin Islands tonight! That would really be something to talk about on Thursday morning. Rhode Island had two before. I believe it will have a whole bunch of winners with the 5 numbers correct. Can't wait to see if I'm one of the Lucky one's tonight....

      The timing would be perfect to build a last minute buying frenzy. All the news stations would be able to run with it.

        Well Folks, it's going to be a good night for someone, I hope it's me getting a piece of the pot. I believe it will be won by multiple winners tonight! Just have that feeling. I do have my 20.00 dollars worth without powerplay on them. Purchased one ticket in a nearby town where I live, bought the other one in another town. Leaving later to pick up my wife from work, might just buy another ticket after I pick her up around 7:00 pm. Maybe stop on way home to get me another ticket. Maybe a 4.00 dollar ticket will do me. Good luck to all the members here in the USA MEGA lottery post. If I should win, I'm getting a Trust made up to keep my identity from the public view. Don't won't all the media attention. Y'all have a nice night. Good luck to all!!!!

        Thumbs Up Good luck to you also rocknc Lep

          I agree.  I might grab two more tickets before the draw.  I have a taste for chinese tonight and they are located right next door to a mom and pop shop.

            the person who won Mega Millions laste night muct be loving all this attention on PB. He/she can collect their money in peace.

            I agree to that! Just think if they had some extra money on hand, before they collect on their winning, they could go out and buy a bunch more for the powerball tonight too.....

                        I keep clicking the "refresh" button on the PB Main Page but the numbers aren't updating. Can anyone tell me what the latest increase takes the JP to? Lol!

                          Thanks KY Floyd.  Thumbs Up

                          No problem, but if you win I'll expect you to make sure that Angelas Pizza gives free pizza to anyone who says they know Frank for the next couple of months.

                            There's another increase over the 550?

                              I have a whole $0 invested in tonights drawing. I had a combined ticket with my brother that won $4 last time so we got two more combined tickets for tonight and that is it. I have played the lottery long enough to know that buying huge amounts of tickets really does nothing to increase your chances even though in theory it sounds like it would.
