    Yep, too bad I have no way to get to Georgia or Tennessee since I am without a car at the moment.  But one day, I'll be going over to play.

    I want as many people as possible kickin' in to my jackpot.  Jester

        Be sure to try to buy your tickets in a state that allows for some degree of confidentiality if you win.  DC does so I willl not be buying my tickets in VA. While I would rather see VA profit from any win, it would not be worth it if I won.

        I also woke up with 5 numbers running through my head (which is odd) but I am sure they will be as successful as that fortune cookie lottery #s. Maybe I should buy 2 tickets with the same number (different PB #s) so if I win 2nd place, I can have 2 x more.

          I bought a $6 Powerball ticket for last night drawing, and I won $4 for a total loss of $2. My coworkers did a powerball pool for last night drawing. They bought like 50 tickets for a zero return. I was not included in the pool. They also collected the money for Wednesday drawing , and they did not ask me to participate. Good luck to them.

          You should drop another 4$ and get the free ticket.

              Depending on how brisk the sales go, it should get close. Realistically if it rolls once more, more like $375-375 million would be my guess. Roll Eyes

                In 2 rolls yes. So, the Wednesday after this one. I think everybody who usually buys tickets are already in it. So, it can't grow faster.

                 

                By the time it hits 500, people who usually buy tickets will go broke and will borrow from their relatives.

                By the time it will hit 600, our neighbors from Canada will come to visit us more ofter.

                By the time it will hit 700, we will see the same 3 asset managers, who somehow managed to buy $2 ticket for one dollar. They will bring money to the person who audits power ball drawings as reward for his/her hard work.

                          You spent $6????

                          I am SO disappointed in you.  Thats $5 too many!!!  You cant seem to practice what you preach!!!

                          You have a job and a pool?  And you didnt ask to join?  WOW...you are also a foolCrazy.

                          Maybe they did not ask you because you are a wretched miser (no offense intended), and they thought your PEF was lacking.

                          BTW Good LUck!!  Congrats on your win!!!LepEvil Looking

                            IF it rolls, it will be $422m. <-- based upon 30% roll increase in cash value from last night and the current 62.4% cv of the annuity. Cash value will be $263.8m.

                             

                            Ain't gonna happen. I've got the winning number on my filled out slip. Sorry y'all. Better luck next time.
