Is this the first time we have had a $300+ jackpot in a couple years isn't it?  It will be interesting to see if it rolls one more time but I highly doubt that.  PowerBall fever has taken over.  I predict they are estimating to sell around $90,000,000 worth of tickets.  90/140 = 63% chance of it being won.

    In comarision.

    Powerball jackpot of $300,000,000 = $146,000,000 cash

    Mega Millions jackpot of $240,000,000 ~ 146,000,000 cash

    A sixty million dollar difference because of the new way they structured their annuity.
