Curious if anyone has heard what the count is as far as how many one million dollar winners there'll be? I know it starts out with two and increases based on sales, but I had read an article somewhere stating that state lottery websites would be keeping a tally on their sites, but I haven't been able to locate one. Ohio's site didn't have the total listed last time I checked. I purchased a ticket this morning and the ticket number is a little higher than 58,600, and I'm sure that's just for Ohio. If that's an average amount among the seven states (totalling around 410200 tickets), then the number hasn't increased above the two one million dollar available jackpots yet. Considering the larger populations of NJ and NY guessing their sales are a fair amount higher than Ohio's, so I might be underestimating the total amount sold.
I do like Ohio's second prize: a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited valued at around $29,000, although I'd prefer the cash if I won, which I'm sure is not an option.
