Well, that would be an indicator, no doubt, ha ha. I was just wondering if the poster found that specific number elsewhere rather than speculation, but it very well could be set that high once Saturday comes around.

I never guess....it's all about the maths Wink

The Texas Lottery publishes official jackpot estimate documents.

    I posted this graph in another thread but here is an updated one:

    PowerballRuns2

    Previous record run denoted by (G) for Gloria.

    Projected Sales for current $425M PB draw are $225M. The next PB JP is projected to be $696M even with very conservative $500M projected sales. The previous two record PB runs of ~$590M had sales of $460M and $560M. And the record $656M MM run had sales of $650M, so we know the capacity is there. After that, will jackpot fatigue set in? It's in uncharted territory after that.

              Does anybody else think there might be a good chance at a roll with this run?

              You can see the rollover probability (no winner) with the graph below:

              PowerballProbabilities

              Currently, we are just below the threshold to have a winner,(120M tickets) and a roll is more likely.(53%) But this is all just meaningless statistics. A winner can and has happened on any PB draw. Ask me what's gonna happen in a couple hours? I have no freakin' idea...

                  Finally gave in and bought one ticket.   At this moment each of us owns the winning ticket.   Good luck!

                    I was thinking the same thing, good luck to you as well.

                            Glad to see you posted, Jon - I was trying to remember where I saw your graph and drawing a blank. If it rolls, the Saturday estimate is crazy - that Primm store all the Vegas people go to would be absolutely packed.

                             

                            Maybe it'll even be CA's first PB JP! Dance Little over an hour to go, good luck to everyone!
