There's a suburb of Toledo that has 666 for the first three of their phone numbers. I always laugh when i drive through there cuz some of the churches have 666 for their phone numbers.

My number starts with 666

I got over it a long time ago

Some people freaked out over it though and

had to pay some BIG BUCKS to have it changed

    I have one ticket and while I was out, I bought two more with megaplier.  I asked the clerk how the mega millions sales were going and she laughed and said that was all she was selling today and that it is crazy!  I hope my little $5 investment pays.  Blue Angel

    Good Luck everyone!NoelWhat a nice CHRISTmas gift this would be.

    Your $5 investment will definitely pay...towards my new Ferrari 458. I'd like to thank everybody for investing all this money into my bank account, I wouldn't be able to buy the mansions and cars without your help. Thank you.

                  $636 Million?! 

                  I kept thinking about the Imagine Dragons song, Radioactive, but changing the last line to: "This is it, the apocalypse! I'm waking up, I feel it in my bones, enough to make my systems blow. Welcome to the new age, to the new age, to the new age, welcome to the new" ....lottery winner!

                    Sales are projected at 319.5, say 320 million. That gives roughly 71% chance of there being at least one winner tonight, and 57% chance of only one winner. Friday's projected sales are about 537 million (87% chance of at least one winner, 42% chance of only one) so rollover to Christmas Eve is unlikely.

                    It may be unlikely, but almost a 4% chance of rolling well past a billion is the best odds a lottery has ever offered.

                    It's too bad they offer quick picks.  If everybody had to choose their own numbers the chance of a rollover would probably still be well over 50%.

                      Correction on my posting of stats: chances for single winner only are 36% tonight and 26% for Friday (based on latest MUSL projections). Single winner is most probable for this draw, and 2 winners is most probable for next draw (albeit only a slight edge over single winner).

                      The chances of a rollover tonight are 29% and 12.6% for Friday. Agreed, those are the best odds to push past a billion!

                      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?

                              75 white balls.. Really.. This is going to be cray cray if this jackpot don't go toinght. They knew it would roll this high when they changed the balls to 75 white balls. There are only 15 red, but you still have to get 5/75 and the matching red ball to boot. Yikes!

                              Out of the crazy things that can happen to you in life winning the lotery is the most impossible one.  That's why folks should stay in their budget. I bought 2 tickets. You tear up more tickets than you cash in. Good luck to everyone tonight.
