, aka the jackpot win, so bet away,  irs is the losers here!

    I haven't made my regular donation to the MM jackpot yet, but I will.  I've picked 39 WBs that have hit at least once in the last 39 drawings and 20 MBs that have hit at least  once in the last 268 drawings which my system will use to pick 20 combinations that have never matched more than three in the history of this game.  I'm hoping one of these combinations will no longer qualify for such a group after tonight's drawing.

            Yeah, not exactly "paying it forward".

                    Bought 20 tickets tonight. Should have tossed the twenty out the truck window. Would have had the same affect.

                        I remember a few years ago,someone thought they won the big one in the lottery. He told his boss where to stick it. It turned out this guy had only four numbers. What happened was this guy went crawling back to his boss, begging for his job back. So make sure you have all your ducks in a row first. Wink

                          1:24 p.m. - Updated states that will be added in May

                          Tonight across the United States, millions of lottery ticket holders will be hoping to match all of the Mega Millions winning numbers to win a $224 million jackpot.

                          The lump-sum cash value of the massive prize is $138.1 million, eclipsing the $124.8 million Powerball jackpot cash value won last week by a convenience store clerk from Missouri.

                          Tonight's jackpot is the result of 13 consecutive drawings without a top-prize winner.  The current jackpot run-up started on March 16 as a $12 million grand prize.

                          Players should note that jackpot amounts are conservative estimates provided by the lotteries, and are often somewhat higher by the time the drawing occurs.

                          In the latest Mega Millions drawing that took place this past Tuesday night, there was no jackpot winner, but 13 lucky players matched the first 5 numbers for a $250,000 prize: 1 from Arizona, 4 from California, 1 from Georgia, 2 from Illinois, 1 from Massachusetts, 1 from New York, 1 from North Carolina, 1 from Oklahoma, and 1 from Pennsylvania.

                          The Mega Millions annuity jackpot estimate was then raised $33 million from its previous amount of $191 million. The cash value was raised by $20.9 million, from its previous amount of $117.2 million.

                          The next Mega Millions drawing will take place Friday evening, tonight, at 11:00 pm EDT.

                          Mega Millions is currently offered for sale in 38 states, plus Washington, D.C.  Two more Mega Millions states will be added in May.

                          • Starting May 9, the 39th Mega Millions state, Maine, will be added, with its first eligible drawing taking place on Tue., May 11.
                          • Starting May 16, the 40th Mega Millions state, South Dakota, will be added, with its first eligible drawing taking place on Tue., May 18.

                          For a complete set of game descriptions, results, history, and all questions regarding Mega Millions, lottery players are encouraged to visit USA Mega (www.usamega.com), a Web site that caters to the Unites States's two multi-state lottery games, Powerball and Mega Millions.

                          Some thing very strange happened to me when I bought my Mega Millions ticket this afternoon; I usually play the same numbers on the playslip (2) advanced play for my (2) sets of numbers: 5-11-12-19-26 (2) and

                          1-11-13-14-16-(21) to play tonight-4/30/10  and on 5/4/10; The ticket was only suppose to be $4.00.  Well, the clerk at the liquor store did something very strange and pressed (5) QPS and the total ticket was $14.00.  Since you cannot cancel it, I had just enough money to buy the ticket (thank GOD); I don't know if this an omen or something but that has never happened to me before--THIS COULD BE A SIGN OF GOOD LUCK--GOING TO WIN IN (Southern) CALI PartyGOOD LUCK TO CA LOTTERY PLAYERS!!

                            If I can get a ticket.

                            Getting a ticket shouldn't be a problem since most states are selling them.

                            Since I don't have a dollar to my name...that would be a problem. Frown

                            I won't be playing tonight and after the events of my life today...

                            I give up on pretty much everything.

                            Sad Cheers

                            $1,000,000
