I agree that it will hit that range!!  I only hope that with Christmas so close the little kiddies don't have their stockings filled with losing mega million tickets.

                      I knew the CV was low but seeing it with the other big jackpots really makes it stand out.

                      The annuity value is just vastly more inflated than it used to be. The cash value is exactly what it should be, and would be advertised as a $420 million jackpot if they hadn't changed the annuity schedule.

                      Even that value is higher than it would have been a year ago, because interest rates are a bit higher. During the record MM run in March 2013 this cash value would have been advertised as a $411 million jackpot. Ironically, that would result in this jackpot being called the 5th largest, even though the (current) cash value does make it the 4th largest

                      Not that the cash value isn't a boatload of money, but as of now it's only about 61% of the $477 million record. Even if the final tally increases the advertised jackpot by $107 milion, which will result in a lot of hype about the "new" record, the winner(s) will get less than 3/4 of what the real record paid.

                      A real record will require the annuity value to reach about $888 million. Considering sales to this point, that probably requires another rollover. A more modest jump to 690 would mean enough cash to move up to the 3rd place spot. That's a good bit more likely without another rollover.

                        Here you go folks, Mega Millions meets the Twilight Zone.

                        Dateline: The near future

                        A representative of the MUSL today said that they knew no one would ever win MM with the new 75 number matrix. The rep. saidt they wanted to get everyone in a frenzy with the thought of a 1 billion dollar jackpot, knowing it would never be hit. The whole thing was a marketing test and the game wil resort back to the former matrix.

                        The MUSL says thanks for playing and Have A Lucky Day.

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                        Lep

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                            It seems like no concerns over the odds being ridiculous against you now. How fast people forget about everything with the amount being so high. Wake up people! You are like a baby feeding into this garbage. You stand a better chance of getting hit by an asteroid or comet.

                            Think about a list of things you have more than likely getting than the jackpot. Now that's the fact of the matter.

                            If you feel like you must play get one ticket only and let it be, but don't overdo it.

                            How about thatNo No

                              Good idea to come on a Lottery website and instruct people not to play because the odds are bad.
