      I hope it rolls one more time before one winning jackpot steps forward.

        Definately see the ticket buying frenzy.  Wasn't a line per se, but there were  5 folks buying tix at my local circle k.  Definately an abnormality for this time of day.

            Based on ticket sales the estimated jackpot when up $170 million. How many tickets does it take to get that kind of increase?

              The Texas Lottery says that if nobody hits tonight it will initially go to $675 million.  I can't imagine it not going higher than that by draw time.

               

              Check the State Lottery Report Card
              What grade did your lottery earn?

                      Well this escalated quickly.

                      Escalation is a good thing especially when it involves money that could be coming to you. .Big Smile

                        Or it could end on a whimper with the actual payout falling short, such as $490 million. It already happened once before back in 2013. MUSL advertised $600 million, but the actual payout to the Florida winner was less at ~$590 million. From all indications, the $500 million estimate is probably more solid, but don't bet the ranch on it. MUSL doesn't honor its estimates. In contrast, many state lotteries will payout the advertised amount, regardless of actual sales, for their in-state games.

                          There will appear to be two winners tonight but it will be one person who played the same numbers twice, for whatever reason.

                          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                          Lep

                          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                            So can we all agree that winning a $500 million annuity makes someone a half-billionaire? Yes or no?
