    The Powerball.com website just put up a simple page with the upcoming jackpot amount and the winning numbers from last draw.  I guess they're already getting overwhelmed and are trying to keep the whole site from crashing from people just wanting to know the basic info.  Glad they're being proactive.

        Yeah I saw that and that's what I immediately though. They know this will be one for the record books. 

        Couple years ago when they did the last record PB drawing they said they may do it at a special location if this reaches 1billion...so we may see a special televised event on saturday night too. 

        I can easily see this reach 900 million as the jackpot...but maybe not quite the billion dollar mark yet....

          You did not read the article.  You really should, because you are incorrect.

          That article you linked even contains information that contradicts what you said:

          As measured by the total prize payout, the Spanish Christmas Lottery is considered the biggest lottery worldwide.

          "Total prize payout" is a prize pool, not a jackpot.  Even the top prize in El Gordo is a prize pool split by hundreds of people, not a jackpot.  And although El Gordo is commonly referred to as a "lottery", it is actually a raffle.

              Everyone is pumped up, Even Uncle Sam is getting his paper works ready. He is not going to buy any tickets but still going to get his share of 25% or 39% depending where u live. How excited will this be if there was no tax . Banana

                If it hits 1 Bill, all the Led signs are going to say 000. All the stores will have to hang up cardboard signs.

                  They'll probably keep it at 999

                        In Michigan, since the game redesign, the signs (billboards) can now be flipped from "M"illion to "B"illion. I noticed it for the first time when I went back home over the holidays, and thought it was crazy that they would even think about doing that. Not so much anymore.

                            I'm curious to see what it looks like. I don't think they can add a dot between the numbers, so if it's 1.2 bill the sign will probably say 12 bill. lol
