9/04/05:  The cash value for the MM jackpot is estimated at $92.8M.  Up to now the cash value accumulated, based on sales, was $80.9M.  This means that the lottery anticipates sales of $37.4M for this jackpot.  In the table below the first column refers to the number of winners, and the second column offers, based on the odds, the probability - stated as a percentage - that that number of winners will be obtained.
