people plz remb 550 is what they said

it be little bit higher then that

the great powerball jackpot  run in may of this year was marketed at 1 time as "The Powerball jackpot has soared to $550 million "

it then got upgraded to 600m marketed, the final total was 590m thro come draw

so  i think it will go higher then 550m, not sure if it be  way over 600m, we have to wait and see

thanks to cross selling  in all states, we have created new class of monster jackpots, godzilla jackpots

and this is lastest monster to come out of ocean to attack us,    will it grow to beat  old world record, who knows, but its a monster!

      I think it will easily pass their conservative estimate on sales. Not a lot to go by since the 1st Mega that got this high and similarly Powerball's 1st go at it were unprecedented. People did spend less with each subsequent $500+ million jackpot, but it's been awhile since people had the fever and it's also the holidays

        With the last three drawings containing a '3' in them, I'd be shocked if yet another '3' showed up. Not to mention that would also make it the 6th drawing in a row to contain an 'odd' MB #. We shall see....

        Smile

        I see that '3' didn't show up.

        Smile

              Judging by the craziness around town, the jackpot will reach $800 million before the next drawing.  People are spending big money on this.  Personally I think this jackpot will reach $1.5 billion before it's won.

                I finally bought one ticket. Figure they will raise the jackpot before the draw and based on sales projections there is a good chance of a winner.

                If it rolls again maybe I buy two Naughty

                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?
