    I can't even imagine what will happen if:

     

    1. no one hit the jackpot comes Saturday the likelihood that it will reach $1.x billion
    2. or a single hit this next draw, that one person or group of people hit the close to $1 billion
    3. 2016 is already a great year!!!
    4. retailers with lottery likely hit lots more businesses
    5. We all know the odds of hitting the jackpot, so the "winner(s)" will be the most famous person(s) of the year!
    6. The other games may not be played as much for the upcoming days.

     

    all I have to say for this!

    playing what can be afforded...spend half of what was reclaimed.

            In previous, related threads, I've harped about MUSL estimates sometimes falling short; not honoring the advertised jackpot amount.

            However, in this instance, it's near certain all MUSL estimates will be lower than actual. As others have already said, $800 million annuity is looking realistic.

            Not sure about $1 billion though. Could happen, but likely the jackpot is going to fall a bit short unless many casual players wager far heavier than they have in past "record" PB runs. Ie. instead of buying one or two tickets, buying 5-10 tickets. At $20 average wager per player, $1 billion annuity is very possible.

            And while highly unlikely, there's a slim chance of the jackpot rolling again. If that happens, the sky is the limit. It will be pure pandemonium. May be worthwhile to play ahead a couple of drawings just in case.

              I'm with Ron.  I think the JP will be hit this go-around.  That billion dollar jackpot will probably remain very elusive. G5

                  Is there such a thing as a jackpot cap???

                  I could see this rolling to 4,5,6 billion who knows, even more.  As I've said before it will NOT be won until EVERY possible number combo is purchased.

                  Oh let's hope high numbers are drawn.  If birthday numbers come up, the jackpot will be split about 500 ways LOL.

                      Does anyone know what percentage of combinations were covered in last night's PB drawing?

                        That is very true, Every crazy, scam artist, criminal would have a big ol bulls eye on me and even my family  if they knew I won the  biggest jackpot in history.Coffee It would be hard to enjoy my money in peace, when I have to constantly look over my shoulder.

                        You are so right. Last week I was reading a news piece about what to do and not do if you win. You know, the same pieces that are run every time the JP gets high.

                        Anyway, in the comments section was someone posing as Marie Holmes. They were doing it via a fake facebook profile using a photo of Marie with the jumbo check and telling people she won because of her spiritual guide and if they wanted to win this jackpot, to contact that guide for a reading.

                        You better believe that the conmen will be coming hard and fast on whoever wins this. It's one thing for them to try and scam jackpot winners, but using someone's identity to scam others...? Way worse in my opinion.

                        I might wake up early and go running.  I might also wake up and win the lottery.

                        The odds are about the same.

                          Canada and also i want to say a couple other countries also have lottery caps and the money rolls over to next jackpot.

                          And if they start above 31 then good chance it will roll.

                              Powerball jackpots have been hit with only 5% of combinations covered.
