ok noise-gate if you are saying this for my little fun game you need to pick another number someone already choose that one.

    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.

      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"..

      I am generally not a share the wealth type person (let's have 100 winners for a million $ each!) but when the Jackpot is this high, I always feel there is more protection (or less of a potential threat) for the winners when several split it. Then no one, even the press, is all so intently focused on one winner. If I won a large JP, I would hope several others won as well to take attention off of me.

            Your attorney claiming your prize on behalf of your trust should be enough to fend off the vultures but the press will look into every nook and cranny in hopes of finding something.

            I am with you on having no issues splitting the jackpot.

                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.

                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

                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.

                    I am  surprised about how many Socialists are on this thread telling us how much money is enough for one person.

                    If I win it is my business

                    If someone else wins, it is their business

                      I wasn't referring to skeletons in the closet but just the eagerness of the press to find and reveal the identity of a major jackpot winner.

                        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.

                          LP has t-shirt and cap? Is it on sale online?

                              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

                              Maximumfun =517

                              Technut =520

                              ttech10 =522

                              Bagent =527

                              Original Bey =529

                              lejardin =533

                              four4me =535

                              Easygoing123go =542

                              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.
