    Tickets will remain on sale typically until 10:45 pm Eastern Time on Tuesday, although players should check with a lottery retailer in their state for the exact sales cutoff time.  Players are advised not to wait until the last minute.

    I thought that but some clerks became confused after Ohio added PowerBall which has a cutoff time of 10:00 pm so I just started playing earlier to be safe.

                  agreed. :) Didn't one of these record jp's get raised and revised like 3 times before the drawing?

                      I won't be surprised if someone hits it tommorrow with all the sales but man it would be so awesome to hit a new record.

                      It is at a new record high. The cash value which is more meaningful than the annuitized amount is what many follow as an indicator.

                        Some grocery stores cut off lottery sales at 8:00PM EST.

                          to get their tic's.   Crazy
