I'm playing Quinto now. The last record jackpot was 2.8 million. Now it's 4.09 million (for a pick 5 game no less).

It just keeps dragging on and on. No one seems to win it. I have been there before with Washington's lotto plus and Oregon's megabucks I was wondering how other players feel about jackpots that just don't ever seem to be hit.

    yes. when i'm home, i play powerball, and when i'm at school, i play mega millions. granted i do not play unless either jackpot is at certain level, but i wind up spending quite a bit of money when the jackpot has a huge roll.

    I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

      At least powerball and mega have a "wall" that they can never seem to cross at the 300 million mark. Some state games just keep on going.

        I know the megabucks sure does go for long periods of time without a winner and then they will have a couple of wins then another long run.  It sure is frustrating some times.

           I agree.  The Illinois lottery jackpot currently seems to keep dragging on and on.  It's now at $17.5 million.

            I enjoy playing when jackpots never seem to get hit.  It's like an added bonus, even though your numbers weren't drawn, you get another shot at an even higher amount the next time.

              I think that it is a win/win situation. If you are the guy who wins when it is 200 million then you are happy. For the rest of us, you are still investing a buck for larger cash. The odds probably lower considerably but still it is a shot at winning.

                    The Illinois lottery jackpot is now currently the third largest US jackpot.

                    Connecticut hasn't been hit in months...an argument for Hot Lotto in the Nutmeg State.

                      not to worry sooner or later it will be won by somebody.

                         Yep. It makes me feel like I still have a chance of winning.

                            The Illinois Lotto jackpot is still running - it's at $27 million!  The Saturday, March 19 drawing was the 35th consecutive drawing without the jackpot being hit!  It is still the third largest US jackpot (CA Super Lotto Plus is #2 and Mega Millions is #1)!

                            Those "drag-on" type jackpots are "the best" ...especially when they roll-over into nine figures!  ...and can be won by absolutely anyone!

                            ... the lottery never fails to surprise!

                              Well, provided you're in a state that offers the game. Otherwise you're SOL
