      Playing every Mega Millions drawing increases your chances of winning the jackpot?

          The true amount is about $60,000,000.  I'll pass. :)  Call me up when it gets to the big Benjamin.

            I can get by on 60 mil. Instead of calling anyone I think Ill just try to win it for myself.

              64.28, by my calculations.   I could not only get by, but do just about anything I've ever dreamed of doing and there probably would be a pretty nice sum to leave to my nieces/nephews when I kick the bucket.

              Again, this is up there where the amount after the initial 25% is taken out and what will need to be paid come Tax Day is substantial., about 16 million.  You could make a decent amount on that in interest in half a year, more than enough for me to buy that BMW I've always wanted.

              I just bought my tickets for this weekend's drawings and was shooting the breeze w/ the cute young clerk at the store and she said if she won, she'd give a bunch of it away.  I explained to her the limits on giving and how much it would be taxed over a certain amt.  It made her jaw drop...and then I told her how much estate taxes would have to be paid on it if/when she died.   She shook her head and said "We need a another revolution."   I told her that might happen, but we could avoid that by electing some honest and fiscally responsible people...for a change.

                I really hope that I win more than a dollar on friday like five bucks would be nice or three numbers or two numbers and the mega ball.  That way I can have two sodas and a pepperoni stick at circle k on saturday morning.  But knowing me I will buy oregon lotto with the money to see if I can win another jackpot.  If you see five or ten or fifteen come up as mega ball on friday night you know weshar75 is rich hopefully more than a dollar rich too.-weshar75

                  If it rolls tonight it will be $201 million, then the fun will begin. Good luck to everyone and hang on to your hats Cheers

                  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?

                    I've done my workout and come up with some combinations to play, now all I have to do is buy the tickets.  Good luck to those who do.

                            There was a winner. We've gone the spring and summer without a $300+m prize
