I'm pretty sure that we won't get another rollover tonight.

    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.

    winoneday =503

    romancandle =506

    sully16 =507

    Artist77 =508

    KY Floyd  =510

    Saylorgirl =511

    LottoLucy =515

    Maximumfun =517

    Technut =520

    ttech10 =522

    Arrowhead =525

    Bagent =527

    Original Bey =529

    lejardin =533

    four4me =535

    Easygoing123go =542

    ronjonson =550

    noise-gate =580

    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.

     

    ANYONE ELSE CARE TO ADD A GUESS? CUTOFF TIME IS 10:45PM EASTERN.

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

          Am I all alone on this? ROLL BABY ROLL. We still haven't gotten long lines where people are in Publix to buy tickets and not grocery - lol

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

                We might, but the way things are going I'd be extremely surprised if we don't also need a rollover on Saturday to reach a billion. We might even need one next Wednesday.

                    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.

                    Do you really think 1 or 104 tickets makes that big of a difference when there are 175,000,000 possible numbers? What you're saying would make sense in a raffle, but not the lottery where there is such a high number of possibilities.

                    Whether it's 1 line for each draw of the year or 104 lines for one draw, your chances of winning are pretty much the same. If you have $416 you want to use for research, go buy 104 lines for tonight, and then a single line ticket for tonight and for the following 103 draws. In a year, calculate your numbers and report back. And be aware, though almost literally impossible, only the 1 line ticket has the potential to win 104 jackpots or 104 second place prizes.

                        Add another 223, 000 to that. 104 isn't even a drop in the ocean.

                          HEHE very funny but i doubt you really want to use that for an answer in this version.

                          I will however use that answer if you don't provide another one.
