I hope one single, record breaking, winning ticket can unseat Jack Whittaker.

          As the odds get longer the jackpots will get higher.  For Mega Millions when was the last time there was more than one winner in a single drawing.

                That would be November 21, 2003, when 3 tickets split a $70 million jackpot (and 2 were bought by the same person).

                Oh well, Ohio won the 170 million MM jackpot. Jack Whitaker is safe for now. Maybe next time CA will win MM.

                  With the new PB annuity, we might have someone winning a record prize based on the annuity value, but wins less cash than Whittaker.

                    I agree with this CASH Only. I don't care about the cash option, just the annuity value part. However, PB sales are lacking because of more jackpot winners of 100 million or less. Without CA playing MM, sales will suffer too.

                      I want the lump sum. Period.

                        Definately I would take lump sum regardless if the jackpot is over 363+ million.

                            No matter how high or low the jackpot is, I wish we take lump sum. I wish the North American jackpot record of 363 million will be broken.

                              I didn't read anywhere that they would pay out differently on a cash option. If it's under 50.5-51% than it's news to me. If I'm really wondering what the cash prize is I would just check on www.usamega.com.
