So how much are these states making from this drawing alone?

 

According to the California Lottery website, 33% of lottery money goes to education after prizes and expenses.

      I hope someone win who plays the game not some random person who never play pull out a dollar and win, there are loyal mega millions players who play every or almost every drawing regardless of jackpot size for years!!!! Argue

        "Due to unprecedented traffic, our regular web site has been 
        temporarily minimized to provide access to the greatest
        number of players possible.

        Winning numbers will be posted shortly after the drawing."

         

        Yea, I wonder how bad their site is going to get hit later if they've already had problems with traffic.

          I predict there will be two if not three winners tonight.

           

          I doubt one person walks away with all that cash.

                That will be nice, even if there is three winners tonight each person check will have at least 118 millions on it!!!!Dance

                      freeobama pointed it out, I just quoted it. Had quite a surprise when I went there.

                        It's amazing how many people on this board have the same numbers, haha.

                          I would not be shocked at all if there was a one ticket winner who went down the same path as Jack!Sad Cheers

                            When the jackpot was $390 million, there were 43 people that matched 5 of 5.

                             

                            My guess is that sales will be higher for this drawing so there should be about the same about of 5 of 5 winners.

                             

                            If the winning numbers are low, then there could be more.
