    If no one wins tonight, the Powerball Jackpot will be $925 million. Ultimately, that could mean a $1.2 billion jackpot by the time of the drawing. Based on current calculations, the cash value would be projected at $581.1 million and would reach $753.8 million (on $1.2 billion). In California and other states where there are no state taxes on lottery winnings, you could conceivably walk away with as much as $455, 295, 200 or as Jay-Z says, almost "half a billy."

       With sales reaching such high pinnacles, I very much doubt that there would be a rollover. But, who knows, right?

         Highly unlikely but not ENTIRELY impossible.

          I wish they would go ahead and get today's bump out there. I'm sitting here waiting for it so I can celebrate by walking to Walmart and buying a hook for inside my pantry. Oh, and to pick up another ticket or two at the Murphy station there.

            It's like a less than percent 10 chance of it rolling and it been only winner. There is still slim possible we will see a billion dollar jackpot.

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

                Source? Or random number?

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

                    I think its around 20% chance rolling and 30% chance for 1 winner.

                     

                    Although my numbers are also kind of guesses. Slightly educated estimates.

                       Thank you Piaceri, you are so sweet.Hurray!

                       

                          Now, if only 1 ticket won the entire loot. Oh wow, I will find it too hilariousGreen laugh. The poor media frenzy would be astronomical. He he he. Hey, if by some miracle, either one of us are the sole winners.....DISAPPEAR, pack your bags and loved ones and make yourself scarce. Charter the first thing smoking outta town. Send the media on a wild goose chase. Hmmm, more funny would be if either or both of us would win, my fiance suggests buying a billboard sign, with a smiling face of whomever pissed us off say, a boss from hell with it reading "I AM THE BIG POWERBALL WINNER". Hey, media goes crazy, boss from hell will try to run as fast as his sneakers can aid him/her from the attention and crooks....It is only fair...Evil UhhGreen laugh

                       

                       

                        Mmmmkay, evil thoughts there.Evil Looking

                      Oh that will be really hilarious. But when all is said and done, the ugly boss and the ugly lawyers will come for half your loot and then what?. When I win that kind of money, all the nasty mean ugly people I've encountered in my life, will become a distant memory, where they will be locked away forever. Too much fun to be had, to even spend a second of my time, on those kinds of idiots, will be a total waste. Happy playing.

                         mypiemaster,

                           It is my overactive mind thinking. But yes, to avoid litigation, best just not even bother. Like you said, with that much money, mean people would become but only a memory.

                         

                          Good Luck to you as well.
