This jackpot is exciting! Banana

By the way, does anybody know what  Gloria C. MacKenzie is up to this year?  Also, are Gloria and the son she said she was sharing with (though couldn't find her saying percentage, and noticed only her name was on the lottery headquarters' big ceremony check) still living in Florida?

I had read that Gloria had purchased a nice mansion inside a private guard gated golf community in Jacksonville, Florida. I doubt she is playing any golf but I am sure sure she is enjoying the peace and privacy that her community offers.

      as exciting as watching paint dry. good luck with that 75 number matrix you have to pick 5 or let a machine (most of you) pick your numbers. need a math expert to figure how much of a percentage of difficulty that has increased as a result of the increase in the matrix number 54-75 is way too prohibitive to play. stick with smaller state lottery's if you want to hit something. you really don't want or need hundreds of millions of dollars. what would you really do with it. nothing but trouble.

      Thumbs Down  to State lottery's. I've won a-lot more playing pb/mm.

        If no winner(s) tonight, the jackpot is going to $369+ million.

        I will probably sit out Friday if so, but if it rolls again after that I may play for Tuesday. I normally don't play this early into record territory, but the cumulative probability will be topping 90% and single draw probability nearing or exceeding 1/4 with tonight's draw.

        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?

                  Bought one ticket on Sunday, then today on a hunch I went down to spend another two dollars. The Lottery machine was on a ten minute warning (delay), based on how folks were buying them. For a taste of this jackpot, ten minutes is a pleasant time to stand and dream. 

                  A dollar and a dream , how cool is that!!

                      Todd must have jackpot fatigue lol. I remember when a jackpot reached 100 million , there would be an article written on it on lp.  Now it took the jackpot to reach over 300 mil to read something about it. First time in a long time I spend 10 dollars on megamillions. May the lottery gods make me rich.

                      Give it a year. No one will bother writing about a $300 million jackpot. Two years ago $300 million was an anomaly. Not so much any more.

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

                      The odds are about the same.

                        Aw darn, none of the numbers in my MM lottery ticket's row matched those drawn earlier tonight! 

                        Anyhow, by any chance did you have any good fortune via your MM ticket(s) tonight?
