    Looks like slightly lower than expected sales, lowered the estimated jackpot

        I'm going to guess based on estimating tickets sold that there's ~51.7% chance of a rollover. That's based on the difference between the last run-up to 448 million and this jackpot - the difference from the previous drawing's prize (in each respective run-up) and at a 64.5% prize to total sales. About 115.5M tickets sold, or $231M.

          They over estimated the last time so maybe they did it again.  Either that or people are waiting for the jackpot to reach a half billions before buying extra tickets.

          Looks like I was right, the revised jackpot was posted as $399.4/$223.3 cash.  Now we'll just has to wait to see if it rolled to an estimated half billion dollars.

            Yep, those numbers sucked. Much too low. And there's going to be a whole lot of millionaires from the second tier as well. Would have liked to have seen a rollover, but oh well. Maybe next time. Maybe MegaMillions

              No increase yet. Must not be that many folks getting pb fever like last time.

              Instead of going up, it went down. Definitely not as many sales as they anticipated. Perhaps the diehard lottery players are broke from spending all their money on the 2 huge jackpots earlier this year. I had really expected it to have been bumped to $425 million at least

              I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

              The odds are about the same.

                I hope it go up. It look like someone won. I hope it a group of people together. So alot of peoples will get alot of money. Not just one person. That to much for one person to win. If I win or know some one that did. I would help so many peoples. We will see because we still have Mega Millions.

                  You should build a new Opera House in Detroit with the money if you win.

                      Who exactly determines how much is too much for one person to have? Utterly ridiculous statement. 

                      Here's hoping it was one single person who won.

                      I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                              Only 90M tickets sold! Way below my estimate. There was a ~60% chance of a rollover :(
