Well, to all the naysayers, who just a short two weeks ago, didn't give Powerball a snowball's chance in hell of getting even close to a new jackpot level. It's like New England weather, not happy with it,........... just wait a short spell.     LOL

      Just out of curiousity did you happen to notice that your little avatar in your signature calling people stupid was incorrect (I will let you figure out which part is wrong)?

      I mean I have to know if that was intentional because if it was not that is pretty hilarious.

        I believe it will roll at least 1 more time and hit $415 million, which will probably be $425 million come draw time. After that it still stands a good chance at rolling so we could be seeing a $550M jackpot very soon. $341 million cash option. lol

          Oh my.................!Scared.

            Good luck hiding THAT kind of amount!  $203,000,000 which is about $132,000,000 (I am working on a tack bracket of 35%) If your state doesn't have state taxes we are talking about $150,000,000, just for the taking!

             Oh my word!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What the heck is a soul supposed to do with such an amount?! On a second thought, wrong questionROFL 

            As one member on this post mentioned, 1 ticket should suffice. I predict should anybody win this Saturday, it would be a single ticket holder. Should it roll over, it will still be a single ticket holder.

            Now, WHY do I have a feeling that the lottery officials will PRESSURE the owner to do a press interview? No trusts, since they have to parade a winner and justify the increase in price in so doing?

            Oh dear, this might turn out to be more than anybody would bargain for.

             HAVE MERCY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Scared

                  Should you be given a marvelous gift, share it with yourself first and see how it tastes THEN, share with those you see fit

              Maybe so, but in many states it is clearly written in the rules that a winner may claim either by trust, corporation or even anonymously. They have to follow those rules.

              Despite the possible pressure, any winner that has already had a gameplan in mind should definitely stick to it.

                        I vote for it to be a bullseye. Cool

                         

                        This is a nice increase on the jackpot, it'll cover the high rise condo in an income tax free state that I have my eye on!

                            My biggest concern is how much does a hundred million dollars in gold weigh and where on earth am I going to store it and hide it?

                            $50 million in gold and $50 million in oil should be about right and a tank...

                              http://goldprice.org/gold-price-per-kilo.html

                               

                              this place has live gold price, in kg, so divide  kg results by 1000, and you get metric tons of gold

                              50 mill/

                              $55234 /kg

                              = 905kg

                              or 0.9 metric ton lol not even a tone of gold
