        Also posted to their official Facebook page with 50 shares and counting.....must be legit?

        Edit: Per MM website, it's official. Wink

        If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
        If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

          I'd rather wait for offical news, to see if there was a winner or not.

            Just because you guessed that no one won doesn't mean, "Nobody won. It's now at 550 millions." is not misleading at the time of your posting.

                      Might have to get tics in Connecticut. Third second place in a row.

                        With the odds change, my feeling toward Mega Millions has changed. It is interesting to see it go up and up, but it is no longer fun to play - winning seems completely hopeless now. I've had a MA season ticket for 10 years but I am dropping it when it expires next month. When I consider that literally every person in the US over 18 would have to buy a ticket to cover enough possible numbers to produce 1 winner, I can see they will get their dream billion dollar jackpot soon enough. Yes I may buy a ticket when it hits $800 million or $1 billion - but I will let others build the jackpot for me. 

                        But what will they do if they have a billion dollar jackpot frenzy, sell the max number of tickets possible and there is still no winner week after week because there are not enough players and millions of number combinations are left on the table? That is the senario I am waiting for. I think they have set themselves up to have a winner very very seldom. Too seldom. That's good for their billion dollar dream but bad for the players who begin to question what the point is as the weeks and then months pass by. 

                        But even if I drop out of the game, it is fun to watch from the sidelines as they go into unprecedented territory. Unprecedented odds and unprecedented greed.

                          As of today they are projecting sales of about 206 million for Tuesday's drawing.

                          If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                          If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?
