I'm calling it right now...if no one wins Friday, we WILL have our first $400 million jackpot ever.

I agree, if it rolls the lines will be longer also, get your tickets early.

Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

        Ive played numbers in all of them. This will be my winnings, after it crosses the $400,000,000 mark.  I have my attorneys picked out (they dont know it), and I have identified my Wealth Management Co. identified, (they dont know it).  I have my two houses picked out, one in Marylaand and a huge mansion in Orange County Florida.  I have my 50 page life plan already consisely laid out.

        Just the transfer of the funds is what i need.  Lol

        Yeah, I know what you mean, delS! I have a lot planned, but probably not as much as I should! I do NOT have my lawyers, financial advisors, or tax consultant picked out yet, but my tax woman is phenomenal and I know I'll get great advice on who to look at for my board. And she will be on it too, along with the tax consultant. After all, it doesn't hurt (when you have that much money) to have more than one person, from different companies, with the same title. That will keep their advice "legal".

        So many people trusted Bernie Madoff because he was a professional - and successful. How easy would it be to listen to your only tax consultant, then later, discover that what he proposed was illegal as you are carted off to jail. Hence, I want more than one  - from rival companies - on my board.

            Yeah, I spent $9 on last night's jackpot. The reason I spent so much is that I'm going to a few different places to buy the tickets. As soon as I find my "lucky" place, I'll stay there. So far my Kroger is the luckiest (I actually win on half the scratch-offs, when I buy them) but my local Harris Teeter, my fav grocery store, just started selling lottery tickets two months ago. So far not lucky with tickets or scratch-offs (which I have to buy because I have a $5 and I do it through the machine), but I'm hoping it's just warming up!

            Although this time, I will spend either $5 or perhaps up to $20 if I decide to pick numbers myself. I mean, it is in the top 10 of all time for lotteries!!!

            Yet, I do hope there is more than 1 winner. That's too much money for just one. Even if I win, I'll still feel the same...unless over 100 people win it. LOL

                         The next winner will be out of Washington state and the winner will be from Alaska. Remember you saw it here first!Dance

              s5thomps, I sure hope you are right about the winner being from Washington state but are wrong about the Alaska part.  I live in Washington and would love the be the winner of this large of a JP

                To avoid that scenerio why not handle your own money. I wouldnt need someone else to handle my money for me.

                    Oh boy! Eek Now that Mega Millions rolls to a much bigger jackpot at $304 million, will Powerball (at $101 million) follows suit after tonight's draw? Hmmm... Disapprove

                    I sure hope by the time someone wins the MM jackpot, PB's pot should at least reach the $150 million mark or more... so that our dream of winning the big one is still within reach! Cool

                        Just bought 5 tickets this morning all with Megaplier.  The lady asked if I wanted the games on one ticket or separate so I went for separate.  I dunno what the liklihood of Quick Picks winning the MM jackpot are.  Oh well.  I plan to save my money just in case there's another rollover.

                            That's right..! me and my cousins each pool $10.00 for a total of 150.00 for last night game and only won $4.00 bucks! matching only 2 of the megaball. With all that ticket we should atleast get like $20.00 back.

                            I should have stay with the $5.00 that I bought for myself at first. Now I wasted another 10 which should have been for this draw. 

                            304 is a lucky number! 3 + 0 + 4 = Lucky 7
