Its going to be depressing if thats the outcome. Will probably p**s alot of peeps off. Thats why i hate rollovers.

WhyWhat?

What's wrong if only one person won?

I think that would be an even greater story that this person beat the odds.

Now if the winner was 91 years old I'd be like daaaang!!! just kidding lol

Never too old to enjoy money as long as your mind is still sharp.

      Or a 75% interest rate.........

      We will not have any incentive to play the lottery if they keep increasing taxes in the USA.

          Going to be interesting to see how many tickets are sold compared with the record mega jackpot. Only getting half the tickets for the same amount(compared to mega) spent which could mean a good chance for a rollover if less people play because of the cost.

            I am  anticipating TWO INCREASES before actual draw time. Both at midday on Tuesday and Wednesday.

              I went out and bought "a Donald" today. Can anyone tell me if this is a "classic Donald" or a "new Donald"?

              A "Donald"???  As in Trump or Duck?

              "Let them eat Cake!"

                I think it was Lawson??

                He was the last person to win the PB JP, his ticket had 4 QPs and a single winning self pick line.....

                He said "I just checked boxes" or something like that.

                  LOL  Where you just let your hand randomly select all the numbers, with no set system or numerical preconceptions.

                        Sort of like "Automatic Writing".

                        "I've said it hundreds of times, so why not once more? What difference does it make if you win $40 million or $425 million?   I suppose it would be great to keep a few million and start a charity with the rest, but I will never understand the buying frenzy that starts every time the jackpot gets to these astronomical levels"

                         

                        It's because of the "been there done that" syndrome. Even though 99.99% of people (actually more than that) don't win the jackpot, they get jaded by seeing "the same old dollar amounts". Psychologically, people just get more excited when they see rarely seen (or never before seen) dollar amounts. I play every drawing even when it's "only" 40 million.

                        I even play sweet million twice per week at $1 per game for a jackpot that's only 1 million (660 thousand in NY state after taxes). I'd be very excited to have $660,000, let alone 100's of millions. I've won more money playing sweet million by the way, with its much better odds, than I have in powerball. In about the last 2 years in sweet million, I got 4 numbers, 5 different times, for a total payout of $200. Plus many times I got 3 numbers for $3. At twice per week, that's $104 per year, so I'm actually a bit ahead in sweet million of total money won vs total money spent, and that's a rare thing in any lottery game.

                        "I've said it hundreds of times, so why not once more? What difference does it make if you win $40 million or $425 million?   

                        I agree on some practical level, but in reality it cost over $40 million to own a G5 Gulfsteam  before you even start the engines...... So there is a VERY big differance... lol. lol. lol.

                          That must be the "new Donald" and I got the "classic" with 4 QPs and one self pick......

                            As long as it's a "winning" Donald, I'll be reasonably content.

                              An article I just read said the winners were 6, 27, 46, 51, 56 and Powerball 21
