And someone who uses ad hominem and "u" is intelligent? Just because you're not educated enough to understand probability and statistics doesn't mean

others are stupid.

    I just reads news report that said that 80% of the possible combinations have been sold.  I will be stunned if it rolls but I can expect to see a peak in last minute sales tonight so unlikely. Either way I predict that 2-3 tickets will win it like thebig MM.

      With over 80% of combinations sold u think there is a 20% chance of it rolling, with  8 hours left to play? Your intelligence is beyond this universe.

        Both, somebody on 550 million dollar post told me it was a 20 or 30 percent chance of it rolling.

         Somebody on a "post" told you? And that, is a verifable source? Mmmmmmkay, carry on.

          It's not highly unlikley at all. I'd say rollover + single winner = around 50% chance. Maybe a little higher.

            Nah, yoho. Come on, most combinations have been exhausted, a rollover? Really? I would eat my own hat if that were the case

            well its rolled, from 475 to 600 mill thats 125 mill, 50% of  money take is paid in prizes, and the top prize collects what %20? so the 125 hike on the pot is prob 20% of ticket sales ie  50c of ea ticket sold goes to the pot. 125 / 0.5. on my vauge calculations means 250 million ticket sales?

            2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016 JAN = -106; FEB= -81; MAR= -131; APR= - 87: MAY= -91; JUN= -39; JUL=-134; AUG= -124; SEP = -123; OCT= -84  NOV=- 73 TOT= -3498

            keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= JAN=-32, FEB= +12 , MAR= -86, APR = -77. MAY= -48, JUN= -29, JUL=-71; AUG = -52; SEPT= -43; OCT = +56 NOV = -33 TOT= -3297

                    If they sell only one winning ticket tonight, and it goes to California I may lose it.

                            WOW!!! Using argumentum ad hominem, on a fellow poster on a fun day like this, might be percieved as ..........unwise? Why question one's intellectual ability, abundant mentality and superficial magnetism? Simply stated, all this mental joisting and cacophony, on a day we should only be thinking of having fun and getting filthy rich might actually result in intellectual disability. Let's all just get rich and have some fun doing it. Peace.

                              lose what your ticket?What?

                              Lose my mind. It'll be just my luck that I've been playing for a while and a state newly added will sell the winning ticket. Bang Head

                              But I told my friend who lives there to leave her house and go buy a ticket...just in case. I want my odds covered. Dance
