    The 1.3 Billion is trending in twitter now? It's possible no winner tonight?

    It's very possible and if that's the case then it's rigged... lol

      Not rigged....I don't know the final tally yet but I would estimate 25% probability of rollover.....

      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?

        #Powerball jackpot reached $949.8 million before drawing. Still unknown if jackpot was hit.

          yeah I seen that and they were in a rush to get him off the field, why?

          he was sacked, and landed on his bad shoulder which he missed several games earlier in the year for.......and the classless bengals threw water bottles and

          trash at him as he was carted off.   kudos to ben for making a come back, his press conference he told that he could not throw very far, they would have to

          march it down field.

            Even if 600 million tickets were sold there would still probably be tens of millions of combinations not picked.

            You can't predict random.

              sales were probably around $900m for this draw - TX estimated $810m for a $914M jackpot or something

                    One MUSL feed updated to $976.3 M/$605.3 M about 30 minutes ago but I don't think that is correct.

                      unless I'm participating in a work pool tonight pretty much confirmed why I never spend more than $2 on Powerball.  My uncle bought $250 worth of tickets.  He had two numbers on a few tickets and the Powerball on 4 tickets and that's it.  He won about $36 tonight and that's it.  Reminds me of a friend who played briefly in the NBA in the 90's bought over $1000 tickets back when it first reached in the 300 millions and barely won $100.  Ugh.  lol

                        2016 starting off with a billion dollar bang! I remember the insanity of 2013, and how it started. Will this be another banner year for MM and PB? It's gonna be exciting!

                          I just want to see that times square live draw we was sort of promised for a billion plus jackpot.

                          No bees, no honey.

                              If nobody won it we should know within an hour or so but I'm pretty sure it's probably going to be another 3-4 hours if somebody won it
