Right.  I saw the final amount last night was $524.1 million though the advertised amount was $500 million. 

Wouldn't be surprised if it starts going up even today, particularly in the afternoon when folks get off work, etc.  It will most definitely increase substantially come Saturday, just wait and see.

Auf Wiedersehen!

Wait, see and win!

 

Viel Glück!

          You get a pass on the spelling because of the umlaut. ;)

              Lol! Hope you win something so you can buy your own boat and truck. Good luck Golfer1960!

              Hi D! Good luck to you too. I know you have an appetite for cars. Are you shopping?

                Told you, just jumped to $700 million.  Someone posted on Facebook how to get umlaut and other accent marks on the computer, but don't remember it.

                  Just went up to 700 million 5 minutes ago. I predict that it will be at least 800 million before Saturday night but may even go higher if the tickets sell as they expect it to

                    I'm betting, pardon the pun, that it will easily pass the $900 million mark, we've got plenty of time to draw time.  Sure feel for those border state employees that ring up many, many tickets to non lottery state residents.  That's OK, it sweetens the pot that much quicker.

                      They keep having to update it, nice! Now I believe it'll be 850 on Saturday.

                          You both are near correct.

                          Some internal guesswork figures are putting it around this much:

                          531,900,000 cash

                          869,100,000 Annuity.

                           

                          The math is based off the MM record jackpot. That also was a 3-day selling jackpot      - "The largest jackpot ever" as reported by the media back then.

                          That's how strong sales pushed it then.

                          That's how high this jackpot can go with what they know from the past sells.  It could go even higher as you both point out.

                          No bees, no honey.

                            Hubba Bubba! Ticket sales were more then twice what i thought. I also expected more second place winners considering the 656 MM had 161.

                              I heard that Germany got rid of what we call the S-set...that funny looking 'B' symbol that symbolizes double S's.  I can remember seeing a street sign when I first arrived and I thought it was strange saying what I thought was StraBe when in fact it is Strasse.  Is this true?
