you've gotta ask yourself one question, "do I feel lucky?"

I Agree!

    It should easily be over $300 million when the drawings happens on wednesday.

    Hmmm... it's possible... but I'd be surprised.  With MM sitting at a whopping 13M, most folks will be dumping thier cash into PB... that could goose the jackpot.

      With a $260 million jackpot I am thinking that the annuity looks like a nice option because in your first year it is like $4 million and in your last year it balloons to $14 million.  If you are a young person who can wait out the 30 years it would be a good option.  Come on my ticket!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-weshar75
