 NoShameIndianaUnited StatesMember #104848January 21, 2011159 PostsOffline May 18, 2013, 2:27 pmI 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.

Your intelligence is beyond this universe.

And that, is a verifable source? Mmmmmmkay, carry on.

Come on, most combinations have been exhausted, a rollover? Really? I would eat my own hat if that were the case
 savagegooseadelaide saAustraliaMember #37135April 11, 20063341 PostsOffline May 18, 2013, 2:44 pmwell 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?" Still swinging, still missing " 2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = -1257 ; 2018 = - 1380 =  TOT =  - 6233keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 =-427; 2018= -223   TOT = -3968:

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.

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