It is all but certain someone will win tonight.

For last years 380 million Mega Millions jackpot sales were $229,421,186. 

1.3 times the number of avaliable combinations.

That one was a bigger jump than this one. Unless the 363 estmate is way off about 70% of combinations should be in play. A winner(s) is likely, but there's almost a 1 in 3 chance for a rollover. The drawing should be happening right about now, and we'll know in a couple of hours or so.

    I'll wait to tomorrow morning, no need to spoil my dreams. Good luck everyone!  Bed     Hyper      See Ya!

    Opposite for me, I'd rather check and know so I can switch my dreams to the next (albeit lower) jackpot amount.

            I through Todd or MADDOG10 hit Powerball jackpot. The winning ticket was from N.J and both them are from there.

                Did not win. Thank goodness I am only in for $5. 

                Next stop Powerball tomorrow.

                  It's pretty wild to see my servers' network utilitization right now.  It is pegged at 100%, meaning that every last bit of networking bandwidth is completely consumed with Internet traffic.  It takes an awful lot of people to make that happen.  Pretty nice that the sites are still run OK, despite the onslaught of people.  Can't say the same for most government Web sites.  The "official" Mega Millions site just says "Service Unavailable".  Meanwhile, USA Mega is still going strong.

                      I have not gone to the MegaMillions or Powerball sites in ages. You update about an hour to two hours before them so it is a waste of time to even go there. They should just shut them down in my opinion. I usually get the numbers from here and tweet or text them to my friends so they don't have to wait hours to know the results.

                        a few months ? 12 mils. not enough for you ?

                        12 mil? so 5 milion after taxes is plenty but I only play when cash is $100 million plus. Odds are so outrageous i want to make it worth my while. Some play every week.
