According to the ohio lottery website the cash value option dropped to 151,000,000.  Has that ever happened before.  I don't think sales were as high as they expected obviously then.  Well means more chance of a rollover.

    Maybe it's a sign Ohio just wants a bigger cut of your potential prize money Jester

      I don't think the NJ winner will be complaining. I will if they don't choose cash. NJ "requires" the cash/annuity choice to be made when playing MM, but it's not binding.

        They took "Cash!" According to the printout that I picked up today 9-19-2005 before leaving NJ.
