I wonder if taking the cash option,  could one buy out part of a phone company branch serving ones city?  If I could do that,  thats what I would do with my winnings.

                So.... What are the astronomical chances of hitting mm and pb both in one week??? Had a story pop in my head about a lady having two tickets for two games.... And the numbers matched on both, but were for the opposite games.... (If my wording makes sense)

                            I'd like to see it roll atleast 2 more times.

                            1 more roll would no doubt put it at estimate 400 million or so.... I'm going by what happened last time in which by the time it was draw time it was over 500 million.  So perhaps the roll over after that would be 800 million.

                            One more after that? ....Eek

                            But the 2 roll overs should be fine.

                             I'm trying to wire my brother some money to get tickests for the next few draws. Ofcourse something in the universe does not want me to because its having problems doing the transaction..!!!!

                             

                            I probably won't get to participate in the sat drawing. so Here's wishing it rolls over (ah come on...you all want to win it...but you want it to roll over aswell) Cheers

                              Im not interested in the power play.

                              Why not!! You could tell everyone you won a mill twice if you hit 5 nums.
