The World is at Peace compared to what it was in the 1930's, 40's and the Cold War. I can personally feel the difference. Compare the news with that Era and be glad for all the stupid things they talk about now.  Let us leave the past buried and RIP.

    Even if its not me, I hope that one person wins the jackpot.  Its just more exciting when one person wins and they are from a state that has never won the jackpot.

      Can't believe they haven't upped it to $1.85 Billion yet!  Are the bean counters off on the weekend??

        What??? 

        $1.60
        BILLION
        Cash Option: $904 million
        Now it's on!!!
        That's almost a $billion take home. 
        Powerball will soar too!

        I won't get excited until I see I have all 6 matching numbers. Until that time, this is dead to me as Mr. Wonderful would say on Shark Tank.

        Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is one  MIRACLE I desire for 2019!!!  NOW come to my subconscious mind you 6 winning numbers!US Flag

          Monday morning they will bump it up to $2.0 Billion which will spark a buying frenzy all day Monday and Tuesday. When it is all said and done, I will have the lone matching ticket to the $2.2 Billion Mega Millions jackpot.

          I will be the most hype yet impossible to identify lottery winner you will ever see. I will wear a MAFA hat...Make America Free Again. And that will be the last you will see of me in front of cameras and the media. I won't make the media rounds to the morning shows or even the late night shows as I would have to keep up my ruse to hide my identity.  I may fly Basic Economy from time to time to keep myself grounded. I would drive a regular car but I would also have a nice luxury car or two.  No pocket or speed rockets as I want to live as long as I possibly can and don't find much appeal in Lamborghini's, Bugatti's, or Aston Martins. l will thank all players (contributors) as I have contributed for over 2 decades.

            I think it’s time a Louisiana ticket won a MegaMillions jackpot, or at least part of it.

              I tell you what, guys... I live in a NON-ANONYMOUS state...KY.

              Looks like if I win I'm headed to the Wealth Management Folks, and ask them to pull out a few Ready-Made NEVADA or DELAWARE SHELF LLC's, and set up a Claiming Trust, and a Bridge Trust. 

              And, of course, instruct the Rep who stands in front of the Camera to say a few words for me, without Giving away my Identity...

              Such as leave CERTAIN clues, so that those who USED to know me, (and claim they don't remember me anymore,) will then know EXACTLY who won.....

              ...and EXACTLY WHY they ain't getting one red cent.

              Kind of like the way Donna Summer, in her one song, sang about how certain letters were read "On the Ra-di-o..."

              Of course, I'll let you all here have ONE CLUE as to who I am....

              Remember the Star Wars Parody "Hardware Wars?"

              Well, there was a certain character in that short that said, "Nah, it's only just a headache..."

              Who was HE?

              And you know what?  I'm willing to bet he ate frog legs drowned in hot sauce, too.....or maybe ketchup....

              I'm telling you, it's the ONLY WAY to have 'em. 

              Cool

                I don't think they will bump MM until Tuesday... and then to only $1.65 or 1.7B.

                  well, Revolution777,

                  you might be right.....because...I'm figuring even IF they bumped it to TWO Billion,

                  people's wallets and pocketbooks will be so WORN OUT from over the weekend...

                  they'll say , "ach! Forget it....I'm tapped! I gotta get Christmas for the kids!"

                  What happens if it gets TOO HIGH?  Would they "rolldown?"

                    Don't forget that PB is siphoning some of MM's money because it is a huge jackpot now also.  It's possible it will end up at $2B, but I doubt it.  If it rolls (and there is a 25% chance of that), then we are looking at $2.2B-$2.5B!!!

                      Yeah.... Imagine that.....

                      TWO lotteries worth a BILLION, and rolling over....

                      Nah....it'll never happen.

                      At least not this week.....

                      But then again......

                        Ecclesiastes 5:10, look it up, then you tell me about greed.

                        Don't set yourself up for an enormous disappointment. 

                        Bye.

                        Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any. So many systems, so many theories, so few jackpot winners. 

                        Lep

                        There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                          LOL! I tried to copy&paste this Bible verse in context, but I got a HUGE warning from Lottery Post claiming that I was trying to send an unauthorized link. If I attempt this "spam" again, me and my "ilk" can go kick rocks!

                              Past three workdays MM increased around noon.  It will definitely go up closer to $2 billion, not that measly amount you suggest.  We shall all wait and see.
