So funny reading all the threads/comments! LOL

Starting @ $650 million if it rolls without winner tonight Smile

because you can only play 104 times a year. you only have so many years left to live so why not play every drawing and hope you cash even a 40 million jackpot which is enough for anybody regardless of the masses who only play if it's 200 million or more thus diminishing their chance to win anything.

      Unequivocally, there is no chance of a roll over.  Every time I finally buy a lottery ticket, someone that is not me wins on that drawing.  I just bought one.

      Now THIS kind of logic I understand!

        This must mean that if you give that lottery ticket to someone, it will end up being the winner.

            If an LP member wins this loot on Saturday wear an LP t-shirt and cap even if you don't identify yourself by your handle. It would be good to know one of us finally won.

            I will, I promise.

              So now anyone else care to venture a guess at the final annualized jackpot for tonite and see who gets closest without going over.

              Doing this "Price is Right" style. Just for fun. Noone can use same number as someone else. Begins from start of thread.

              Here's what we have so far based on provided estimates so far in this thread.

              Artist77 =508

              KY Floyd  =510

              LottoLucy =515

              Maximumfun =517

              Technut =520

              ttech10 =522

              Bagent =527

              Original Bey =529

              lejardin =533

              four4me =535

              Easygoing123go =542

              ronjonson =550

              LottoMetro =650

              I will stop taking entries at ticket cutoff time. If jackpot rolls over then the rollover number is the result. If jackpot is won then tomorrow when todd posts final jackpot amount then we will see who was closest.

              The game ends no matter if someone wins jackpot or not. SO if you think it's going to roll over then guess higher or not it's up to you. Don't go over HEHE. (c8  I will begin this game again on saturday if jackpot rolls over. anyone can guess begining on saturday for that game in the new thread created. i will gather the guesses together when i login on saturday.

               

              SO ANYONE ELSE CARE TO GUESS?

              Yesterday is History, Tomorrow is a Mystery, Today is a gift that's why it's called the PRESENT! (c8

                          Why not play 104 tickets in 1 drawing, instead of 104 drawings a year? Not only do you have a higher probability of winning (assuming the goal is to win at least once), but you don't waste your time playing lowball jackpots. If you're gonna play, go big! Wink

                          Personally though, I am fine playing one wee little ticket, since that's all it takes.

                          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?

                            According to my calculations there is about a 48% chance of a rollover and 52% chance you are right.

                            I've got a ticket but secretly hope it rolls over, just to see how high we can get this thing. It would be a new record for sure.

                              We might very well see our first 1 billion dollar jackpot if it is not won tonight.
