      >  the funny thing is that i bought 55.00 worth of powerball tickets in TN and i did not get one number out of every one of them.

       

      When I ran a pool, I would make up slips with all the MBs or PB's so we were at least guaranteed $2  or $3.....

      PS I'll take $330 Mil...

        I want to see it break record and go another 2 rounds to see it cross over 300 millions and the gleam in the eyes of the MM lotto players/worshippers

            I have a feeling it rolls over one more time.

            MAYBE twice more.

              With its jackpot at $207M, MegaMillions had enough people excited about winning to make it a news story.  Friday, the local TV stations had stories of people buying tickets and dreaming of being a millionaire.  Usually when this happens people who don't normally play or follow the lotteries will start buying tickets so I expect there will be a big jump in ticket sales for Tuesday drawing making it more likely someone will win.

                If you had manually picked all 39 bonus numbers on your auto/quick picks, you would have at least got a 0+1 for $3.

                   LOL don't think anyone wants to spend $39 and get $3.  I think most players are targeting the top prize or at least a second one (which by the way doesn't require hitting mega number).

                   Good luck everyone...   Though MM jackpots in $200 000 000 range are mostly won in Ohio I got my tickets too.   

                 

                 See Ya!

                  I think that it's Illinois turn. But the player will have crossed from Wisconsin. And when he wins, he's taking his cash to Wyoming where he won't pay any more state taxes....

                    I don't think adamc224 wanted to buy 55 PowerBall quick pick tickets and win nothing either. LOL

                    I hope what you said about Ohio is true, I'm overdue for a big win.

                      If not you, then me Thumbs Up

                      I have a ticket already but if I hit my favorite place before Tuesday for something else and have a dollar in my pocket I'll get another!

                          Damm! I'm pretty sure that it's gonna get higher. I had a dream that the jackpot went up t0 $330,000,000. I'm gonna buy one hundred ticket worth of quickpix in Queens and one hundred in manhattan and one hundred in brooklyn and one hundred in NJ

                          i hope you are right. i would like to see that big a jackpot.

                            I know I've said this before, but this time it really is coming to Washington State (Spokane Valley)!

                            naw naw king county needs it one more time. washington state that is.

                              Thats a good plan.....those areas always win at least the 250,000 dollar prize and Queens recently won a MM jackpot....if I lived there I would do the  same ....I live in a county in NY.....that has never one a 250k or jackpot.....I still play though......one day it could come to my county

                              queens new york won that last big jackpot. a store on hillside ave.
