On Tuesday's jackpot they estimated an $123,000,000 cash option.  After sales it actually was $127,676,752.  So sales beat the forecasts.

For Friday's jackpot they are estimating a $153,374,250 cash option.  An increase of $25,697,498.  That means they are expecting to sell $80,809,742 worth of tickets.  They low ball the jackpot all the time so probably expect around 85 to 90 million in ticket sales.

That number is only half the amount of total number combos out there so there is a one in two chance that the jackpot will roll again.

    Crunching more numbers...haha...if it rolls on Friday (Hopefully it does) we will have a upfront estimated jackpot of $310 million.  If we can make it past next Tuesday's Drawing we will see our first $400 million dollar jackpot.  Let the jackpot roll.  The lower tickets sales might help us get to the $400 million mark.
