          Does anybody know if there are stats or lines on for who the host will be.

          Also what is that girls name? Lexa or Alexa?

          I know the guys name is Sam. Thats the easy one.

          We play a 'just for fun' guessing game at my contact site for "Who will tonight's host be"

          click on my 'Name' to view my 'Member Info'

          her name is Alexa Fuentes, the name of the guy is Sam Arlen.

          .

            The secret to keeping friends is not telling them you have come into money through a lottery win or otherwise. Just because you have friends does not mean nothing is off limits.
            I never discuss my personal finances or sex with my friends & l don't expect them too either. Thinking your friends ought to know everything about you is a recipe for disaster.

            Dance

            Finances I understand, but not discussing Sex with a friend... I mean a true friend.  I mean who are you gonna brag to?  I can't imagine... but of course money... screw them scum suckin' greedy wal-mart shoppers, and if my friend tells others about my sex life because I didn't cut him in... welllll, I am sure I can find people who know people who...

              I never get offended. Even when people pray with all their heart for me to get run over by a car.

              I wonder why- l mean there are times you take BS to a whole new level but l can live with that. .

                    We will probably see the worlds first billion dollar jackpot with mega, I guess they want to see if they can beat the number of rollovers as ohio's classic lotto has.  When was the last time that was won?, seems like forever ago.... lol

                      Ohio Classic odds 1 in 13,983,816

                      Current Mega Millions Odds 1 in 175,000,711,536

                      New Mega Millions Odds 1 in 258.9+ MILLION

                      An increase of over 50%.

                      By comparison the Powerball odds are 1 in 175,223,510, almost equal to the current Mega Millions.

                      Ohio Classic hasn't been hit forever, however the buying pool is much smaller. 

                      Yes the Mega Millions jackpots will be substancially more because of the astronimical odds.

                      Yes someone will on occassion win, but remember that word occassionally.

                      And look out when they do.  With someone winning a $1,000,000,000 (one billion) every whacko that thinks they have a shot of capitalizing will be looking to steal, kidnap, swindle, befriend, and have worldly investments if there safeguards to protect identity are not put in place within every State.

                        It's really quite entertaining that the same people who swore they were going to win it in the $290M thread and the $300M thread are now making the same claim in the $400M thread.

                        Green laugh

                         

                        realtorjim,

                        Good points in your last paragraph above. Some here honestly believe that they could win a world record jackpot, "blab it to the rabbit", and they wouldn't have to worry about being approached by skids, winos, mooches, leeches, Al Qaeda, etc........

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        Lep

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                          Ok, then you do plan on being broke quite quickly. Nothing wrong with that if thats what you want. Im not on of those hard nosed "saver" people who think you should not spend your own money if you want to.

                          No, sonny, I would definitely not be broke quickly.  Since I was able to retire in my early fifties and live quite nicely off my investments since then, I think I should be quite capable of determining how much I would need to live the way I choose to live for what remaining years I have left in my old age.  And had you taken any of the personal finance classes I taught, you might have learned a few tricks yourself.  Cheers!

                            The new Mega Million format will be very reminiscent of the Ohio Classic; absolutely no winners in a year or more. Teach the people running Mega Millions a lesson; boycott the game.

                              I Agree!   Thats my plan.I'm only one person,though.It will take millions of people to teach them a lesson.
