      I like that picture. Reminds me of how once I win, I'll literally pile my bed with millions and dive and jump in it. Come on, you know you have always wanted to do that.

      Nice keep the Vision Dance

          I don't think so. They achieved what they wanted.

          The PB modus operandi with large jackpots seems to be:

          - be very conservative on the initial estimate

          - then on the day before the draw, put up the *real* estimate (to get more buzz and steal MM's thunder)

          Remember last time they overshot, they said $600M but ended up being only $590M.

          There's more than math going on here, there's also Marketing.

          Agree with your last sentence. I think they raised it to 400mill to spark a frenzy and it worked.

              As usual, the lottery mislead us with 425 million jackpot. The best one could get if won is around 147 millions lump sum after taxes.
              But of course they won't mention it in their ads.

                        Looks can be deceiving. Granny might actually have more money than Mr Bigstuff. Mr Bigstuff, appears to be counting, some "free" money, from Colombia and Mexico. He looks and smells like the Feds. On the other hand, Granny appears to be a penny pincher. In reality, she might actually have crapload of money, in the bank, screaming-will somebody please use me?  Granny has what she has. Mr. Bigstuff, has drug money. 1 for Granny, Zero for Mr Bigstuff. Granny wins.Hurray!

                              I like that picture. Reminds me of how once I win, I'll literally pile my bed with millions and dive and jump in it. Come on, you know you have always wanted to do that.

                              I was noticing the serial numbers on these bills. HI 12876101 A

                              As mentioned above, the letters correspond to the districts of the Federal Reserve Banking system, here are the letters and the corresponding district:

                              • A: Boston, MA
                              • B: New York, NY
                              • C: Philadelphia, PA
                              • D: Cleveland, OH
                              • E: Richmond, VA
                              • F: Atlanta, GA
                              • G: Chicago, IL
                              • H: St. Louis, MO
                              • I: Minneapolis, MN
                              • J: Kansas City, MO
                              • K: Dallas, TX
                              • L: San Francisco, CA
                              • So this money was printed in Boston MA, with the letter A at the end of the bill. Wonder how a bank would let them take this picture of this much money? I'll bet there was Guards all around when it was taken! Hope It rolls, just jumped only 25 million! Thought it would go another 100 million jump. California, Florida, Pennsylvania, all the biggest state with the highest population will get the win! But I'm hoping NC will hit this time and it's going to be shared with me. Good Luck everyone!
