Boy, this is incredible, sure hope I have the jackpot ticket for tonights drawing! I wonder how it would feel to actually hit such a ridiculous jackpot. I would LOVE this oppurtunity to be a jackpot winner of absurd proportion and FEEL what it's like to actually match ALL the numbers on the same line and be able to head down to Lottery headquarters and claim it! Woo hoo.... Hope tonight is my night to hit this very very large Jackpot!  Hyper

      Just went by my buddy's convenience store and asked what the most someone spent today buying tickets. He told me $350.

      People are nuts.

      I was at the FL/GA border yesterday and several people in front of me plunked down over a $100 each.

      You are right, some people go over the edge and it's unfortunateUnhappy

        I went to the store a little while ago for milk. I had $1 in change, but not for long. Just a little extra ticket.

        Oh oh, you're straying from your game plan Wink

              It took what about 2 hrs last draw to find out if there was a winner, how long do you think it will take tonight?

                only 19 pages ? can this pass the 30 page thread on the 356 mil. thread ?

                about 3 & 1/2 hrs. to go.

                    if you had, would spend $176 million on lottery tickets just to try to win a jackpot the size of todays.

                      I went this morning.  Exits, 1 and 2 off of I 95.  No lines no hysteria....only clerks taking about not showing up for their shifts with no call if they win, LOL!! I plunked down 1 quick pick at five different stations with 10 advance plays on each one.  $50.00....incase it keeps rolling.  Although the drive is just under 2.5 hours....not too bad, little traffic, etc.... I also have 3 QP from GA with advance plays from several draws ago and 2 QP with advance plays coming from CA....I'm good.  Let the lottery GODS do their thing.  I am ready!!! Bring it on.......

                          I believe it's been attempted in the past but with no success. You would only come out ahead IF you had sole winner. The man hours involved in getting every combination printed makes it prohibitive.

                            but how many from dade/broward & myers can ?

                              Same area, I ended up stopping at the Pilot travel station. 10 advance picks? sounds like you definitely have your bases covered although I believe we may only see one more

                              roll-over if it doesn't hit this evening.
