        That is more than enough for me even with a three way split.  In fact, I wouldn't mind winning it Saturday night.

        Good Luck all!

          Until they change it again, $40 Million is the starting point for all Powerball jackpots not 478M. It'll increase to maybe 490 at the top end and if it rolls it'll increase to maybe 540M.

              Why are you asking me questions FLipper never was addressing me or YOU, so i Don't care what they say it is None of my Business, Why are you so Worried. If you Don't like a Comment don't read it or there is a Button to PUSH for the staff to proof read....and by the way i wasn't talking to you.....

              Try to Stick to ((((LOTTERY)))) Topics~ Life will be so Much Sweeter Lovies

              Good Luck on The Drawing if you PLAY I Agree!

              Of all the people who should make a statement about sticking to lottery topics. Lol! How many hundreds of lottery topics did you disrupt by posting meaningless icon after icon with no comment...especially when you get your crushes on the current troublemaker of the month. People had to scroll through all your garbage icons to even follow the topic.  Stop making passive aggressive comments to people and then acting surprised when they respond.

                With the way it poking slowly upward, I'm more attuned to say more like $550 million.

                  The Texas Lottery publishes jackpot estimates usually the day before the drawing, KY Floyd tipped me off to the link earlier this week. It provides some stats which you can use to compare with previous PB jackpots too.

                          I asked my magic 8 ball if I will win the PB jackpot tomorrow night. It said yes.

                           

                          I'm afraid you guys will have to wait longer for you billy+ roll-up.

                            Close to 500 million and barely on page 3... it's amazing how jackpot fatigue sets in.

                            Could be a combination of Jackpot fatigue and maybe a lot of people going completely overboard on what they spent back in January trying to hit the record JP. Sales for the Jan 9 and 13 drawings were 2 billion 150 million dollars. That is a little more in sales then the first 59 drawings in 2014 produced. It took 60 drawings from Jan 1 2014 thru July 26 2014 to top 2 bill 150 mill in sales. this past drawing had an advertised JP of 422 mill and ticket sales were a little over 100 mill. Here are a few examples from past drawings that show how much smaller ticket sales are now then in the past.

                            7/27/16 advertised JP 422 mill ticket sales 100 mill

                            2/07/15 advertised JP 360 mill ticket sales 146 mill

                            2/09/14 advertised JP 400 mill ticket sales 183 mill

                            9/18/13 advertised JP 400 mill ticket sales 182 mill

                            8/07/13 advertised JP 425 mill ticket sales 271 mill

                            8/03/13 advertised JP 300 mill ticket sales 118 mill

                            I remember a few years back when a JP of over 300 mill was big news and would have people all exited. Now a JP has to hit the 500 mill mark to even get noticed.
