So funny reading all the threads/comments! LOL

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

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?

    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.

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

    KY Floyd  =510

    LottoLucy =515

    Maximumfun =517

    Technut =520

    Bagent =527

    Original Bey =529

    lejardin =533

    Easygoing123go =542

     

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

        The roll over projection is different from the size of the jackpot at the time of the drawing. I thought the game was basing the win on that figure. Please clarify

          I don't know what it will end at tonight, just that $650 million is what MUSL will start at if no winner.

          Usually the latest raise for current draw is closest to actual.

                the result will come one of two ways either someone wins and result is final amount and we see who got closest or new starting estimate ends this round and we start again on next draw date.(saturday)

                      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.

                      l cannot speak for others but when the jackpot is this high, l see no reason whatsoever in not having more than one winner. The only people out there who are playing for a split are those in lottery pools.That of course is their choice. One can tell a lot from how people react over money, especially money that they have not won as of yet. I read where people in this forum speak of " setting up charities " when they win, yet they militant about " OneWinner".. It's only me and no one else. I find it hard to marry that mentality with the " once l win, charities".. Speech.

                      When l read " Mine, Mine"- I instantly think of the Seagulls in " Finding Nemo"..

                      People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it- George Bernard Shaw.
