I Love STATS.. So if we based the sales to be at 80% coverage, then there is  a 20% chance of a roll? or 1 in 5?

Yep, that would be true (or close enough, there are variables). If there are enough tickets sold that 80% of all numbers are likely chosen, then statistically there is a 1 in 5 chance of a roll. But those odds aren't favorable for a roll.

      Somebody justify needing the sums this jackpot would provide, either way,annuity or cash.

      I hope the record jackpot brings a record split.

      Andrew Carnegie sold his company BEFORE Income Tax was law.

      Carnegie died on August 11, 1919, in Lenox, Massachusetts at his Shadow Brook estate, of bronchial pneumonia. He had already given away $350,695,653 (approximately $76.9 billion, adjusted to 2015 share of GDP figures) of his wealth.

      His Foundation STILL helps people to this day!

      That's how Capitalism WORKS!

        Based on sales projections, 75 percent of the 302 possible combinations will be chosen for Tuesday's drawing, up from 59.1% in Friday's drawing, said Carole Gentry, spokeswoman for Maryland Lottery & Gaming.   About 280 million tickets sold in Friday's drawing, none matching.

                  Yeah, they'd be smart to go somewhere (nowhere) for a year or so, let things blow over.

                        Guarantee nobody "picked" those Powerball numbers tonight, they're pretty ugly. Maybe a quick pick.

                          I wonder if the people who dropped hundreds of dollars on the last draw have any money left to do it again.

                              Plus, the "cash burn rate" is much higher with 2 jackpots at high levels.  At some point, there will be a realization that "I am a dumbass".  lol
