Wow no increase in the jackpot. What gives?

I don't think its quite 'big enough' to spike the frenzy... MM jumped to $20,000,000 though... Maybe for Saturday or next Wednesday if it isn't won by then people will go crazy again

I wish I may, I wish I might...

    Interesting that the jackpot is quite up there....Must be keeping it up on purpose so crapafornia can come in on the very first drawing and run off with the money!

        The guesstimators guessed pretty good.

            13-14-17-43-54  PB 15

            Two non-birthday numbers, 43 and 54. so there is a good chance the jackpot might roll.

                the irony is someone said all bday numbers last draw , it was hit for sure

                then it rolled

                am going to rofl HARD if its hit,  u did it us in whiteballz!

                joking aside,

                thro  odds are getting high soon this thing should be won if not tonite

                to many people playin, thro odds are sure above 50% on any given draw below 400m,

                am thinkin  at lest  25 wins of  2nd place winners 5-0 tonite.

                its good as dead come above 400m mark,  as it just fly's to 500/600m range as only 2 jackpots have proven mm/pb records

                  its like having a Hit placed on u,and ever assasin in the world  out 2 murder u. and whole buildin your in under siege, safe room of high odds is gone for jackpot

                 

                 as for me, i matched 1 white ball, lone 54  Dead, anyone else had better luck?

                 

                also other guy right ," The guesstimators guessed pretty good."

                 

                they only get it little wrong come 300m range,

                and if it gets above 300m range, there so Far off, its a joke, but we only had 2 jackpots 1 mm/1 pb above 300m

                both at first was marketed in 400M rangeGreen laugh        ofc  no jackpot that gets 2 400m range stays in 400m range, it like in monopoly, skip past go"400m" and go right to 500/600 m range

                i think 1 lottery officer even said ticket sales for pb record last year topped above 130,000 tickets sold a SEC, a freaking Sec,

                 

                 

                 

                and god save us all if rolls past 500/600m range, we be welcoming first  at a billion jackpot for sure. and the poor   guesstimators  at lottery office would be on job 24/7 ,  am sure they can pay overtime if that happens Rofl.

                No bees, no honey.

                  I only had 17.. no better luck :(
                  But I predict 315 if it doesn't hit... And maybe a rise before the draw... We shall see

                      , last it had 16 due to bday numbers

                       also with max tax rate of 39.6 taken into it

                          The guesstimators guessed pretty good.

                          That they added $60 million after the previous $44 million increase definitely suggests that they were pretty close. If sales warranted an increase of $6 million it would mean they were following a $50 million increase with a $54 million increase.  That seems far more cautious than necessary, given that any number over 300 probably guarantees very good sales.

                          FWIW, <snip> is reporting sales of $90 million. That would mean 45 million tickets, and almost $30 million for the cash jackpot. Given the current cash to annuity ratio that corresponds fairly closely with the $44 million increase they guessed at.

                          The record last November jumped $34 million, from 216 to 250. It then jumped $75 million from 250 to 325, but the 325 may not have been the original advertised amount.

                            Actually, it would be $63, 795, 600. And I would be delighted to pay every cent of that $63, 795, 600 because it means that I would have $97, 304, 000 in the bank that I did not have yesterday. To me, that is more than my fair share of the jackpot given that a $2 investment earned me in one night more money than the average American would see in 100 lifetimes.

                            "To me, that is more than my fair share of the jackpot"

                            You miss the point

                            Nobody deserves the money, except for the eventual winner

                              Exactly.

                              He bought the ticket which makes his "fair share" the jackpot.

                              And half of it is being confiscated.

                              Being thankful that the government doesn't confiscate all of it is pathetic.

                              But a lot of people have been conditioned to have that response.
