The game rolled to three hundred million annuity while everyone in the free world were sleeping. Means the hype has turned up a few notches.

Buy your tickets today or regret tomorrow. Make the Lotto Directors smile alla way to the bank.

Cheers

    I was wondering about this.....

    Wednesday when I looked no one won....and it was at 290mil....how did it jump to 300 mil?  I thought it rolled over AFTER a game if no one wins.  Just curious.

     

    And as for it being a game or gambling or entertainment...I believe it's all of them.  If you are "playing", it's a game...if you are doing it to provide income, it's gambling....when you can't afford it, it's an addiction.  If you are playing with the thought of an off chance of you winning....it's entertainment.

    That's just my 3 cents. (add a penny for inflation!  lol)

      They can raise the estimated jackpot if sales are running ahead of original projections. I think they purposely underestimate the jackpot when it gets really big just so they can do this and kick the excitement level up another notch.

        I need to win. Not because I need the money, but because I want to win. I want to show those family members who always tell me "your wasting your money".  That one day my money has not been wasted. It was a good investment that they now want a part of. Besides my name says I'm destinedtowin.
