 Funny, last night I had a dream and the dream told me that there would be no winner tonight. Strange...

    Move over Warren!

    OH my gawd!

    Tax calculator sez  $204,749,056.75 cash after taxes!

    That would make me the most popular person on the block.

      the night before the last drawing I could not sleep hardly any. now I may not be able to sleep for days with this amount of money in the jackpot. not to sound selfish but I have a funny feeling I will be the next jackpot winner for mega millions. mega millions has always been my favorite game in fact i have to been called Mr.mega millions.
      on a different note mega millions is doing what powerball I hope to accomplish with a price increase I wonder how do they feel now. also it feels good to be a part of something from the start, and not just jump on the bandwagon when the frenzy takes place. I love reading the media and different news outlets on the mega millions when the jackpot get this high.

        Tell me about it. I went to check my numbers on the Mega Millions site and saw that no one won and the amount it was at.... All I could say was "Holy shiate!" about a dozen times before I logged into here. This will be over that $500 million mark by the time friday rolls around. Furious ticket sales will push it above that amount, I just know it.

        I Agree!

          Around 220 million in California.

          That's crazy money.

            You and literally millions of others feel the same way including me! That's why we play, we all think we're

            next and for someone or someones it really is going to be their turn, so it's not so selfish lot's of people have

            that "funny feeling" they are going to win.

             

            Even if I don't win, this has been so much fun dreaming and anticipating, seeing if it is going to roll over or not.

              So let me ask... are y'all imagining winning as the sole winner? It'd be crazy if like 5+ people were to win it, I know that's how I'd like to win it, with other people to take some focus as well.

                  yes it does feel good to dream... and even better knowing that dreams do come true... also this is really a fun game as you said. I am a truck driver and just getting lost in my mind as I think about these jackpot in about winning as I am alone in my truck is so much fun. it really does keep me happy day today

                    the majority of the time I imagine myself as the sole winner but with this amount of money it doesn't matter... I don't mind sharing with strangers I'm not greedy

                      Holy <snip>! Yes, snipped but you know what that word is.

                      Didn't expect that to roll at all given things were already getting crazy, now they're going to get super crazy. I can't believe it wasn't hit.

                      Oh and LOL Powerball! The people in charge of that game must be bashing their heads against a wall by now... Hopefully it'll knock some sense back into them, probably not.

                      If PB doesn't get close within a year to a record I'm going to bet we'lll see yet another change to that game.

                        There is always a chance that it will not be won on Friday due to repeat combinations (birthdays and even QP overlaps)..I doubt it but Just saying.

                        Friday is Payday.

                          how big will it get if no one wins next draw,  750mil maybe?

                          You're asking where a road goes when nobody has ever been down that road. The best anyone can do is make an educated guess. I'll guess that  it will be at least 500 by Friday, and possibly a lot more. A roll has to push it to 650+, and 750 doesn't seem outlandish.

                              The drawing a week ago was very instructive. 68 2nd place winners and it still rolled. This drawing should have seen sales of about 170 million tickets, with 70% of combinations covered. Even if twice as many tickets are sold there should be somewhere around 10% of combinations unplayed.
