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.

I Agree! i am expecting alot of 2nd place winners, something is always better than nothing.

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

          There's a plan in place that has been seven years in the making.

            That's cool, as long it is just us. I have plans. I'm gonna throw $100 bills out of a helicopter in the most unusual place I can find.  I was thinking maybe over a college football stadium during a game.  Yellow Eyes  Or maybe I'll use a WWI biplane.

              "More than likely, the jackpot will be won."

              We're definitely in the territory where  the odds are that we'll see at least one winner, but there's still somewhere around a 20% chance that there won't be a winner. Not that I'd have any realistic personal use for the extra money, but I'd really like to see it roll just to see how crazy things might get.

              Me too.

                      Thanks alot Todd for this information. Everyone knows N.Y. and California ruled 2010 i do not have nothing against them states, but i rather see a smaller state  that economy and lottery sells is suffering a chance this new year.There are states that have not won a single jackpot in years.Approve

                              welcome to jackpot nation fever,it has the power to make even sane lottery players spend away

                              also the state lottery's  are laughing all the way to the bank

                              i bet if it rolls, louisiana and florida will feel so left out......... maybe they even think about joining a good thing for once, as boy, they are missing out,

                              thro texas and arkansas are loving dumb louisiana losing sales to their border stores , way to go , your lost is their gain louisiana

                              and georgia loving florida lottery taking its sweet time to join mm lol

                               

                              these 2 WISH they was a part of mm tonite!

                               

                              also todd, i hope your ready, in about 2 hours, all hell about to break lose on lotto websites

                              I wish we had MegaMillions here in Louisiana.  If it hits a half billion, I may make the drive from Baton Rouge to Orange, Texas to get some tickets.  It will have to be for Tuesday's drawing though, since I work during the week and would have to go on the weekend.  When the agreement to sell both games in the same state was finalized, it was mentioned in local media Louisiana wasn't going to join.  If it breaks a half billion, I wonder if Louisiana will rethink that position.
