Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

For a lead role in a cage?

      Now would be the perfect time for anyone who has a winning ticket to cash it in. When all the attention is on mega millions. You can slip under the radar with not much attention, and people will forget about you during the big jackpot frenzy.

        That would certainly be nice!

        I still have a 3-person pool ticket from Colorado and bought 2 picks during my short visit in Maryland. I will get 2 more when I get back to Florida tomorrow.

        Tried getting my husband to get a ticket but he absolutely refused...even for one stinking dollar. What?

          I dont think it will be hit tomorrow, and the crazy Lottery Frenzy will be "CRAZY RIDICULOUS!!!!!!!!"

          As of Friday, players had bought enough tickets to cover roughly half of the 259 million

          possible number combinations.

           

          I think it might hit, at least 3 winners from 3 different states.

          If not, whoa!!

          June $0/$0 July $0/$0 Aug $0/$0 Sep $0/$0 Oct $0/$0

            Good luck, Jill.

            I tried to buy tickets this morning when I stopped for gas but their machine was down. Either that was a sign or it'll make for a great story when I win.

I would sincerely like to thank the first place for not having a working machine which allowed me to buy the right ticket at the right time somewhere else. btw This was my very first time playing the lottery"

              That doesn't make any sense, since the last drawing was ON Friday. Kinda hard to buy tickets for this drawing since Friday's hadn't even taken place yet. And as for advance draw tickets, I hardly think enough people buy those to cover ~130 million combinations.

                Ms. Otto was describing the last draw on Friday at roughly 50% of combinations covered.

                For Tues draw, could be anywhere from 70% to 80% coverage, we won't know for sure until tomorrow. That means 70-80% chance of a winner.(very likely)

                  I like your story line. That would certainly stir up those who play every draw.

                  Good luck to you as well!

                    Obviously not likely to happen. But two more rolls to Christmas Eve (next Tuesday) would be...something to behold.

                        Rolling until Chfristmas Eve would be a joy to watch the frenzy hit the country. Then I could wake up on Christmas and God for blessing me and thank this great country for contributing to the best Christmas!!!!!!!!! lol

                            Upped to $550M day before

                            Revised to $650M on draw day, finally ending up at $656M

                            Upped to $586M day before

                            Revised to ????? on draw day, finally ending up at ?????

                              There's a couple different reasons for that.. beginning with you need to wash your hands with hot soapy water and ending with you're coming into some money.

                               

                              You pick.
