      Good thing I get paid on Friday, so I can spend a little more here.

      When I went to two stores to buy tickets yesterday, there were no lines.  I'll be surprised if it's not the complete opposite on Friday.

        My guess is that there wil be 3 or more winners Friday...

        Quoted by favor4:

        Your winning number is not under attack. It's about to HIT. So Hang In There"

            Wow. This is absolutely amazing! I knew it would top $400 million but I never imagined it would reach $476 million! This is unreal. I think I'm going above my normal $3 and spend $30 for this one. 

            Good luck!

                  Great, another 30 pages of "When I win Friday" posts on the way. So for all of those who claimed that they were going to win last night you actually meant "Friday" right? LOL  I would not mind winning the $12 million jackpot after the record breaking one, then I would be completely invisible. I hope I just win one of them. Lep

                      So I wonder how annoyed some people will be if the winning ticket ends up being a $1 one. I usually do $1 but bumped it up to $3 this draw and may go to $5 for the upcoming one.

                          This is going to be pure craziness.

                          It's gonna get ugly up in here.

                          I would encourage people in my state of

                          South Carolina to get your pick 3 early

                          today because I remember when they had a huge

                          powerball jackpot a few years back the system crashed and

                          was down for part of the day. They have since redone the

                          system but it has yet to be under the kind of stress it will

                          be under today.Best of luck to all of you on the big one.

                          Rehab is for quitters.

                            Too bad half a billion is actually only about $375 million or less after taxes. Funny how we say "only" for that amount. The roll is not that big of a deal, it is all marketing. I would have never spent all of the original $365 million let alone another $100 million or more on top of it. So I really don't see what the excitement is about, just a lot more money to worry about. to me it is only exciting because it has never been this high before. But I would I have been ecstatic from $12 million on, even less. Also would be getting A LOT less attention. With this amount people are going to know you can spare A LOT as opposed to smaller jackpots, and are more discrete than record breaking ones.

                              Unreal.. 1/2 A BILLION SMACKERS! Someone is gonna win this one. I thought for sure someone would of won last night. The numbers looked like a run of the mill set. Nothing really odd about them unlike the last drawing. But I'm not complaining, LET IT ROLL ! Good luck to all but especially me Wink.

                              Scratchies for the win!
