With the way ticket sales are going, this evening will be insane! I would not be surprised to see the annuity hit 700 million Eek making the cash option over $500 million Party

I would have to agree with you Jill...it's just totally out of control. Lottery terminals everywhere are exploding, melting and catching on fire!   Mad

    Some bloggers seem to be working from the formula of dividing the odds into the number of tickets sold to determine potential number of winners. That's as good a place to start as any but not necessarily accurate in the least. It is just as much likely that 1 person will win as it is 3 can and that's even if anyone wins at all tonight ( I admit that would be a freak of nature if it rolls over).

     

    I have bought QPs before and in the same set combinations were repeated. These machines gerneate at random and every time someone requests a set it starts afresh generating random sets of numbers.

    That would be a freak of nature!! You may be in Florida but if this puppy rolls and you hear a scream,

    that was me!!! I will be hollering! lol

        I miss those days in Racine and Milwaukee....sheets of snow (holding back the tears).

         

        My 6 psychics told me not to cross the border unless it climbs to $750m and that would require it to roll over again (not likely).

         

        That said I will let you have this one. Don't spend it all in one place.

            With ticket sales most likely to surpass 600 million, I just can't fathom no one hitting. It will take an act of God for no one to hit but in the unlike scenario that no one did then this baby is BLOWING through the $1 Billion barrier. LurkingPartyHyperBanana

                Reminds me of an Alice Cooper song from the 70's "Billion Dollar Babies"  Guitar

                  I Agree! Some folks take it too seriously. There is an NBA player who got 10k worth of tickets guaranteeing he will win LOL ...I have a feeling years down the road he may just regret it.

                            I thinks it's either Journey or Europe.

                              Green laughI'm sure the winner will probably have truck loads of CPA's, Attorney's, and whatever else they deem necessary!
