      Because what ever estimated jackpot they put up they have to pay. If sells are lower money still comes out their pocket to make up the difference if their projections were off.

      Kansas web site has the Powerball pending at 8:22 p m CST time

          btw Todd, how prepared are you for the flood of heavy traffic happening later tonight? LOL

          I don't give a crap, bring em I got my best suit on waiting. Cool Ain't no one scaring me away from nothing.

                Imagine being one of those winners who matches all 5 and missed the PB. Talk about a DRASTIC different between ONE ball. LOL I would be happy with the $2 million but would always think about just missing the world's largest jackpot by one number. Kinda happened to me recently on the cash 5 when I matched 4 out of 5 and missed the last number getting $220 instead of $1.6 million. But this jackpot would win make up for it lol.

                      Because what ever estimated jackpot they put up they have to pay. If sells are lower money still comes out their pocket to make up the difference if their projections were off.

                      Well that's patently untrue. They don't pay the shortfall difference. They pay what the take actually turns out to be, not what the 'estimated' advertised amount is. Usually, the advertised amount is less than the actual amount so winners end up getting more money than advertised, but on the occasions the advertised amount turned out to be more than what they actually took in, the winner got less money. 

                      The reason they haven't bumped the jackpot yet is that if they are too far off in their projections and the actual jackpot is less than advertised, it's going to be bad PR. Bad worldwide PR. At this level, when the whole world is watching, they need to either be spot on or have the final jackpot be more than estimated.

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

                      The odds are about the same.

                            Imagine being one of those winners who matches all 5 and missed the PB. Talk about a DRASTIC different between ONE ball. LOL I would be happy with the $2 million but would always think about just missing the world's largest jackpot by one number. Kinda happened to me recently on the cash 5 when I matched 4 out of 5 and missed the last number getting $220 instead of $1.6 million. But this jackpot would win make up for it lol.

                            Odds of missing the 5th number on a 5/43 Cash 5 game is around 189 out of 190. Odds of missing the Powerball is 25 out 26. So while both seem close, missing the Powerball will be much closer, and that respect, more upsetting to most who only match 5.

                            I say "most", because personally, I'd be ok winning $2 million, and would actually be relieved not hitting the record jackpot. My main reason for even playing is to part of history and hoping to win more than my $9 back (3 tickets with PP).

                            Well, sales are closing shortly in many Powerball jurisdictions. A few hours and, hopefully, we'll know whether anyone won or if it rolls again to over a billion.
