Lottery fever is a pandemic for this drawing. There was a poll if powerball would make it to half a billion. MM beat it to it.

        Harsh... since it's still not updated on the USA-MEGA page... it seems pretty fresh news.  :)  come on now... surely that extra 40M$ must be putting a smile on your face and I know it's making me do a happy-dance jig.  (im still waiting for it to go to at least 600M$ - but it would be lovely to get up to 700M$!)

        Just enjoying the circus frenzy max, this is like a <snip>tail party where all those drinks make you feel like your on a merry- go -round!   Coffee

        Smiles are all around! (except for when those  conspiracy people find out this will be won in Rhodie for the third time).  Chair

              There will be plenty of pie to go around! Just one lone winner from NH. I promise to be generous.  Group Hug

              I think there was a typo.. what u really meant to put is "just one lone winner from IN"

              Here is to hoping (for u) that ur ticket is an authentic replica of mine ;-)

              I wish I may, I wish I might...
                         Win the Powerball jackpot THIS big night!!!

                  I'm waiting for the complaints to start rolling in... 'i couldnt get my tickets because the system crashed...'

                  Anyone wanting in that has not bought one already, should buy them today.

                  The lines to buy tickets are going to be absolutely rediculous tomorrow. Thud

                   

                  $600M sounds about right, I'd imagine the Power Ball execs are considering a return to the old matrix right about now, lol!

                    Lets split the difference, two winners, one from MA (you?), and one from NH (me Yes Nod). Half is better than none......no?

                        No typo, I use "spellcheck" and it's working just beautifully!  Thanks for your concern however ashabug, it's touching!  No Pity!

                              lol - I believe that the j/p 1st ticket sold in RI was bought by a non-Rhodie... so it stands to reason that there needs to REALLY be 2 Rhodie winners... and since there were already 2 Rhodie tickets sold... the 2nd Rhodie winner needs to purchase their ticket NOT in Rhode Island. (its the balance thing... right now it is HORRIBLY unbalanced - (2 winners / only 1 instater won).

                              NH is a lovely state... but I hear tell that IN and TN both are wanting winners as well.  Stretch
