What a wonderful time for the jackpot to come to Washington state. Just had my baby daughter born yesterday and this win would keep the happiness growing for years to come.

Congratulations on your new baby girl!

                so question to all the people who say they want more than one winner. do u buy your ticket in hopes to win it with 5 person spilt even at $40 million start jackpot? if so u should just play for second place and leave the jackpot for the big dreamers. if u want 100 to win a million wish for a 100 people to win 2nd place and they can be happy.

                I don't wish for 5 winners at $40 million, but I would for 5 winners at $400 million. I just like the idea of having more winners rather than larger jackpots. Those 5 winners at $400 million would also have a lot more money per person than if they all won at the same time for a $40 million jackpot. In fact, I'd be happy if odds were made better for players and jackpots never went over $40 million.

                Not really sure why it matters what someone's opinion on the matter is. Neither one is right or wrong, just different.

                  Since California has been contributing the Lion's share of the jackpot, well all jackpots up till now, it seems only fair that California claim the entire jackpot- l mean the whole enchilada.Fair is fair.Big Smile

                    Do we have a winner!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

                    11:00pm eastern tonite we see if someone wins or it rolls.

                    Then we see who gets closest without going over for this round anyway.

                        Gotta just love how the media likes to focus on the long odds of winning the jackpot. Yes you're more likely to be struck by lightning than win the jackpot. But people do get struck by lightning every year and people do win the jackpot every year.  And last time I checked, the odds of winning the jackpot are zero if you don't buy a ticket. So I'm going to improve my odds by buying a PB ticket.

                          And as they discourage you, they flaunt their tickets on air hoping like hell their numbers come up. Then maybe they can be the news instead of reading the news for a change - lol. We all have a dollar or two and a dream or three!

                            So now anyone else care to venture qa 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.

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

                            KY Floyd  =510

                            Maximumfun =517

                            Technut =520

                            Bagent =527

                            Easygoing123go =542
