No winner tonight.

The jackpot for Saturday is a world record $675 million -- and surely much bigger than that by draw time!

Holy giganticus ball o' balls... this is a bit of fun, isn't it.

                  Well we are now entering uncharted territory. Cash value could easily hit 500M which would make it tops, and that translates to a 816 jackpot total. That would make me reconsider the cash instead of annuity decision.

                      New cash value is $413.1 million — second-largest ever.

                      The cash value ended up going up 102 million on tonight's drawing. If my math is right they must have had about 300 million in sales. While there is no doubt the annuity amount will set a new high record the cash record will take about 450 million in sales to reach a new record there. The advertised JP of 675 million is really a very low estimate and will probably be raised daily until the drawing on Saturday.

                        Even spending $500 your odds of winning are worse than 1 in 1 million

                        I bought 1 and only 1 ticket for Saturday. If it rolls again, maybe 10 :)

                        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?
