have my ticket but im going to wait till tommorw to look at it. i chose quick picks and dont know my numbers so heres praying that ignorance pays off.

Ignorance doesn't pay off, I'm pretty sure.

Cuz if ignorance paid off we have a member here named tiggs who would be a Gazillionaire.

    Considering the numbers picked, there is a strong case the jackpot was won tonight.  Unfortunately, it was not me, I did not hit a single number :-(.

      Drat!

      I guess we are playing for $40 million now. Someone is doing the Dance of Joy tonight, probably another hedge fund manager or someone like that.

                A single ticket won tonight. So someone just won 200 million before taxes (assuming the cash option is taken). Fortunately it went back down 40 mil so it'll get back up there in no time. Looks like 200-300 million is going to be the norm now and it wont be long until we get into 400-500 million territory with single ticket wins.

                      No $2 Million winners, looks like 10 states scored the $1Million prizes. (didn't give a total #).

                        I am not one to get on the bandwagon of the ridiculous lottery is rigged thing, but even I have to ask now if something is up. The East Coast area wins another $200 million plus lottery again within less than 6 months?

                        Rhode Island today, the financial guys in Connecticut last November and the Silicon Valley Analyst in NY last month?
