              Talk about jackpot fatigue.  Jesuschrist it only went up 47 million dollars from last draw. Two years ago the jackpot was at a similar amount,  I think $366m, and then shot up nearly $300m to the record $656m jackpot. I was thinking two more rolls will reach a billion, but now it looks like it'll take about four rolls to get there.

              I Agree! Utterly and completely. The last two rollover amounts have been seriously disappointing for a jackpot of this size. And obviously, Powerball can't be blamed for it either.

              In any case, I'm still happy there was a rollover. I want to see the $1 billion mark. Though at this rate who knows how long it'll take to get there.

                    Ever since the Mega Millions odds went up from 176 million to 259 million to one, I refuse to buy one.  As the odds stands now on the Mega Millions game, it's absolutely ridiculous. I'll stick to the PowerBall game for now, even though the odds are one in 176 million, at least a lot better odds than the Mega Millions game.

                      Funny how people get all excited and worked up over and play for an annunitized jackpot that nobody ever takes when they win.

                        Last night two tickets in Ohio missed winning the jackpot by having the wrong megaball, maybe one Ohio ticket will have all the right numbers Tuesday night.

                          Funny how some players look at the odds  of winning the PB and MM jackpots.

                          The odds of winning the PB jackpot are 1:175,233,510 per $2 ticket with odds of 1:32 of winning a prize.

                          The odds of winning the MM jackpot are 1:258,890,850 per $1 ticket with odds of 1:15 of winning a prize.

                          Buying two $1 MM tickets for $2 reduces its odds of winning a jackpot to 1:129,455,425 with odds of 2:15 of winning a prize.

                              Because larger annuity jackpot means larger lump sum. If the jackpot reaches an amount never before reached, it means the lump sum will be an amount we've never seen before. Hence  excitement.

                              I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                              The odds are about the same.
