I think I have more tickets than I have ever had for a single drawing. I have 7 little lines of hopes and dreams!

 

Good luck everyone!Lep

Let's all win $1,000,000 at least!!!Party

At least $1 mil sounds good to me lulu

Pretty sure most wouldn't complain about $1 mil, but having that 1 more number sure wouldn't hurt!

Hurray!HyperBananaWhite BounceCheers

        As I thought, no one won.  Jackpot's up to $508 million.  NICE!  Best of luck for Friday's drawing!

         

        I actually didn't buy any tonight because I had a funny feeling this would happen, so all the money I had for tonight is now going to Friday's drawing in addition to any money I'll have saved up for that day.  YAY!  Good luck, everybuddy!

          Good morning to the LP community. 

          This MM JP is already a truly big one. The cash option (which I would consider the figure that matters most) at 357 M is the second biggest in MM hhistory. And if won by a single ticketholder, only G. Mackenzie's PB (370.9 M cash) win would be ahead overall. Given that the JP has now surpassed the half billion Mark I could well imagine that the final tally for cash will be more than the now advertised 357 M(agnum :-). Gold luck everyone!

                    The real story here is the small interest rates are killing the "Jackpot."

                     (Not really thru the cash prize is the actual Jackpot after all.) 

                     

                    in 2013 a 347.6 million cash Jackpot amount ended up as a 636 million annuity.

                    Now our 357.7 million cash Jackpot amount is giving us a 508 million annuity.

                    That's how strongly the government interest rates affect the annuity amount. The annuity is what brings in masses.

                    The irony being the masses would all be told by their financial experts if they won to take the cash and invest it in the market. The annuity amount may as will not exist today. (I'm not kidding.)

                    In a typical interest rate environment, it is another story. 

                    I am of the firm opinion that, at current rates, the annuity option is one of the worst possible investments in the entire world for any winner to take.

                              I Agree! and that is why I will take lump sum cash when I win.

                              The only good thing about taking the annuity would be if you blew through all of the money you got from the first check....you get another check the following year, for 29 years.
