Nope. Can't win continues on to Tuesday and a 390M jackpot. 

Yep, "can't win" is so powerful with this one.  I believe it won't be won until EVERY number combination is sold. The JP will roll into the billions before that happens.

    It will roll until 2059 at which point the jackpot will be 3 trillion dollars.

      Remaining Anonymous After Winning the Lottery: Using a Trust Within a Trust

      For high profile lottery winners who want even greater anonymity, a trust within a trust structure is recommended. This is an advanced strategy that should only be taken with competent and experienced legal counsel.

      How would a trust within a trust protect you?  Your real name is needed in most states to claim the JP.  All a journalist has to do is request it.  Moving to another state, changing your name to a common one, updating your records, coming back home but to a different address (or using a homeless shelter one), updating your records keeping your new name, and then claiming your JP close to the deadline using a trust might do better for your anonymity in some states, but still it is not a bullet-proof strategy.  I think any news reporter worth its salt can find you but I think it will be difficult for them to know which John Smith is the winner, unless you flaunt your wealth.  And months later they'd probably have moved on from the story.  The danger will be years later from those reporters doing "Where are they now?" stories who really want to find you. Smile  By then your mansion security boys can brush them away.

        The way I understand it is that the trust has a board of directors e.g. lawyers from the law firm of the winner. The jackpot would be claimed by the trust, the lawyers names would be on the paper, however, the trust beneficiary - the actual winner/you - is private information that only the trust itself has knowledge of.

          That's right, but still like that in most states your lawyer has to provide to the lottery the name(s) of the actual winner(s) of the jackpot, I assume with their ID and everything.  The lottery needs to do a background check as far as debt owed to the state, child support, etc. and deduct it, prior to releasing the dough.  If claiming by trust, the winner will be known to the public as "Trust Name Here" but the state will release his/her/their real name to any reporter who comes knocking on their door.

             Here in California your name and the city where the ticket was purchased is made public.

             You can decline the press availability, the grip and grin photo shoot with the big check, and the only photo they can use will be the one of the tickets' front side.

             I believe that I would pay a high price if I did the press interview. Like what happened to the Robinsons in Munsford,Tennessee. The Press will tire of chasing me and move onto to more current events.

             I will give the press a written statement which I will pass onto them through the Lottery officials. I will write in it information about Lottery Post and USAMEGA, Todd Northrop, my nickname here on LP. First I will run it by Todd.

              They say nobody won the jackpot. So the jackpot rolled to $390 million.

              I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

                A $27 million rollover with a jackpot at $363 million. 4 years ago I wouldn't have thought it possible. 

                I want to hear them say they're still happy with this result after changing the matrix. That'll make for a good laugh. 

                On the plus side, low ticket sales increases the probability it'll keep rolling, so I guess that's a silver lining.

                  And didn't it take 30 or so draws?

                    I'm having trouble seeing 30+ rollovers as a silver lining. 

                    When there are frequent winners, at least every month or two, I can rationalize going against the odds by saying "somebody is going to win, I'll put my dollar in so it could be me."  That's turning into "no one wins, why bother". I didn't buy any tickets at all last week.

                      Maybe you're becoming an occasional player...like someone that buys only when the JP is so big that there will definitely be a winner !

                      I have 1 line for this draw and had 1 for the last, but they are the first I had in over 3 months.

                        Out of curiosity, I looked up previous results. Years 2012, 2013, and 2014 -- once the jackpots got into the high 200s or 300s the roll overs were 60 million and much higher. Since then, no. So, yes, something is going on.

                          Even though they're separate lotteries it seems when both are climbing together--MM & PB the jackpots climb slower than normal.  PB  just nudged up $19 million for instance.
