If I recall correctly typically individual states have announced prior to Powerball announcing when said state has sold a winning ticket especially when a large jackpot is up for grabs. For example California or New York might not wait for the national announcement to declare that a winning ticket has been sold. The official amount of the win would not be announced pending results from other states. That's my memory although I may be wrong.

Most likely one state is having a glitch thus delaying the announcement of a rollover. That's my feeling and opinion at least, make of that what you will.

    Well I won $4, so I'm happy. That's the first time I've won anything in a long while.

    Here's hoping it rolls. Since everyone now has lotto fever and all news stations are playing it up, it's time to start buying my tickets in SC. Need to try for as much anonymity as possible.

          It won't be a surprise if this delay becomes a catalyst for mass hysteria.

                          Eight different states had players match 5+0. Not bad. Jackpot is at least $228,000,000 cash, wonder how much more it will be by Wednesday.

                            450 Millions for next week drawing. I can't wait to see Mega Millions get that high.

                              Interesting, it looks as if the Jackpot will move up to 5th place overall from 10th that it was currently in.  But the cash amount will only move up one spot from 6th place to 5th place.  So both the cash and the annuity have come together in the 5th spot.
