    I would bet that it goes, maybe even split .

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

          With the low numbers I am thinking two winners or more maybe three like the $450,000,000 jackpot last year was it.-weshar75

            Although I do not get hyped whether the jackpot is $330 million or even $650 million, I do make sure I have a play in for every drawing. I am even keeled in my emotions regarding the lottery since I know that the jackpot size does not impact me until I happen to have the 6 winning numbers. Until then, it is all dream land and possibilities, but no reality.

            So the jackpot is $330 million...big whoop! I won't do anything different than buy a few QPs and play "my numbers." I am hopeful that my pool of one will win.  I will have to contact my legal firm on Tuesday to make up my "Pool of One LLC" but I just might change it to "POO LLC".  However, maybe "POO-NANI LLC" would be even better. Those scratching your heads on what that means obviously have not been to Jamaica.  But it could also mean "Pool of One Not A Naive Individual."

            So that would be my hope and winning would definitely change my life, unlike someone else I won't mention. I will say it does get old when news outlets jump on the lottery jackpot bandwagon once the jackpot rolls a few times. They, and some people here, act as though $25 million before taxes is not enough for them to bother with playing it.  Well, you who do that have your reasons and I can respect that, but as for me and my wallet, we will be all in every drawing, so I can never say I never gave myself a chance to win, no matter how slim that chance might be.  If Congress people, convicts, drug addicts and crazy people can win, I sure as heck can win!

            I hope you realize how CLASSIC your Poo-Nani reference really is. Big up!!!!

              Poo-Nani is HILARIOUS, but I was tired so it took me a minute. If you can find me a good acronym for Yuh Bumbo, that'll be my LLC. ROFL

              hahahaha, another CLASSIC reference, hahaha, too funny. Big up to you too Teddi!!!

                        Although the projected sales indicated ~77% chance of rollover, even I am a little surprised that nobody got it. Those numbers were pretty low.

                        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?

                            Never let it be said, an all bday jackpot with strong sales Can't roll.

                            Clearly this jackpot intends to surpise  us all. it be more then 400m come draw I hope,  am thinking 430m to 450m range.

                             

                            2013 auguest 7th powerball  jackpot that was once marketed  to us as 400 million ended up at 448m final draw. if thats anthing to go on. form recent history

                            No bees, no honey.

                              Why is everyone hating on Florida? The sell the most or second most tickets in the country for each draw ...seems only natural they'd garner a tat more winners every now and then.

                              Good luck to all for the upcoming draws...not too much luck though Banana
