    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.

              No offense, that's something only a grinch would say!!!! Why not just shoot for second tier with mega play then? 2 million... Wouldn't it be just a little more after taxes?  While I would be more than ecstatic to even win $100, I play to win the jackpot whether it be $20,000,000 or 586+!!!!---------- but--------- that would be EPIC

              I wish I may, I wish I might...

                  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)

                  Don't forget that people can play the same numbers on the different tickets, so the chance of winning still somewhere between 50-80%. But this also means that there is a chance for multiple winners and a shared Jackpot.

                  I don't even try to guess the amount of the Jackpot for Friday - in case there will be no winner this Tuesday.

                  And I think we will start seeing Jackpots like this, since MM just introduced the new system last October changing the odds from 1:150million to 1:260million  and the worse odds let the Jackpot rise higher and higher. There hasn't been a Jackpot since the new rules are in place.

                    I would like to see that as well.

                    316 people win the SECOND place prize of at least  $1 million.

                    The jackpot would be best served by going to one or two lucky ticket holders.

                      My hand itches.

                      My feet are itching...does that mean I will be walking into a huge pile of Mega Millions money this week? And no I do not suffer from athlete's foot!

                      Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                      The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                        That's a very socialistic view. No it is much more interesting for there to be a single winner come into mondo money. With Barack running country baroke (broke for you edumacated folk), I think I would take cash value and claim before year end.  Toodles....

                          316 people win the SECOND place prize of at least  $1 million.

                          The jackpot would be best served by going to one or two lucky ticket holders.

                          LOL!!! I can see the MUSL folks going nuts with a that many 5+0 winners.

                          Powerball once yeilded 110 second prize winners in a drawing.

                          Quoting Wikipedia:

                          The Powerball drawing on March 30, 2005 produced 110 second-prize winners. The total payout to these winners was $19,400,000, with 89 winners each receiving $100,000. The other 21 winners received $500,000, as they were Power Play selections.

                          MUSL officials initially suspected fraud or a reporting error. However, all 110 winners had played numbers from fortune cookies made by Wonton Food Inc. of Long Island City, New York. The factory had printed the numbers "22, 28, 32, 33, 39, 40" on thousands of fortunes. The "40" in the fortune did not match the Powerball number of "42". None of the employees of Wonton Food played those numbers; at the time, the closest state with Powerball was Connecticut. Since the ticket holders had won as result of a coincidence rather than foul play, the payouts were made.

                          Had these 110 winners shared the then $25 million jackpot, each ticket would have been worth about $227,272 annuity or $122,727 cash. The fortune on the inspiring fortune cookie read: "All the preparation you've done will finally be paying off."

                              I hope ticket clerks across the country get some rest tonight, tomorrow is going to be a very busy day for them. If the jackpot isn't won tomorrow, then Friday will most likely break or come very close to the all time MM record!! Right now the Mega Milllions Jackpot is trending number 3 on Yahoo, I think the word is out. lol
