        Your doing a great job. I so enjoyed while all the other sites were down I was able to check my numbers on your site.

          LOL, Lottery Post was not built to handle jackpots greater than $1 billion.  It's showing up as $1300 million.  Guess I have some work to do! LOL

          I saw that and I thought that was such a fun new way to think about it.. 1300 million.. I kinda like it

            about 20%

            Just curious but how do you figure that about 20% of the combinations were not played. I remember someone on here awhile back explaining something about how to figure it but cant recall the details.

              This will be an amazing week of media hype. I look forward to all the crazy stories going up this week. Todd needs to get invited on CNN.

                      I figure it would roll, I matched 2 numbers lol. I am just glad it rolled since I lost as everyone would have been very disappointed if it got that close and did not reach a billion or over and now it has! Bring it baby! Lep   Party

                        so according to the texas lottery spreadsheet about 75% of combos were sold at a jackpot of 914M - extrapolated it a bit for one of 950M
