how much you all think it will be if no one hits tonight?

Starting at $500 at least, but since they bumped this one by $25.3mm, maybe around $525mm

      California Wink

      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?

          There's at least one winner.  Definitely one in California, not sure about other states yet.

          The California winning ticket was sold at Dixon Landing Chevron in Milpitas.

                  The Chevron gas station in California is going to get a $1 million bonus for selling the winning ticket.  Looks like the gas station owner won the lottery too.

                    Even with the final jackpot tally being increased to $425.3 million, this jackpot will remain the 6th-largest US lottery jackpot of all time.  I'm estimating the cash value at $242.2 million, which would also make it the 6th-largest cash value ever.  But that's just my estimate -- we'll have to see what the actual figure is later on.
