Whoever voted and predicted zero rolls are wrong. Jackpot has rolled over to 310 million for MM on 11/15/05.

      Couple years ago when there was a big runup on sale of Powerball tickets, a lottery officials was quoted as saying that approximately 85 percent or more of the possible combinations would have to be sold before the jackpot would be won.

      Believe it was the Whitaker win where more than 80 percent of the combinations were sold.

      Anything can happen, but if the same general rule applies to MegaMillions, about 140 million of the 176 million combinations would have to be sold before the jackpot would be hit.

      I checked some MM sales figures and noted that only 12 million tickets were sold for the 1111 drawing. 11 million on 1108 and 10 million on 1104. Really poor sales considering the size of the jackpot at this stage of the runup.

      I believe the MM jackpot is going to reach astrological proportions before it will be won. At the same time, I'm hoping the 5 combinations I'm playing includes a winner!!

        Need to clarify the MM sales figures.

        Approximately 70 million were sold on 1111. 58 million on 1108 and 47 million on 1104

        Totals in my earlier blog were 'differences' in sales from one draw to the next.

        Sorry for the confusion.

            I think someone will win tonight. I had a funny feeling on Friday that nobody would hit it, but it's just a game of chance. I doubt if it will ever get to a billion unless they add a few numbers and change the odds, but it's possible. I don't know about anyone else, but I think that's way too much for any one person to win. Even if I picked the numbers, I'd say the same thing.  As I've written before, with all the states involved and the millions of combinations being played, doesn't this prove how difficult it is to win? That said, I wish I had the energy to drive to Georgia.  Looks like Valdosta is the closest city to the Florida border and Mapquest says it's a 375 mile drive. Well, if gas was still a buck.....

                Whoever voted on the poll that MM jackpot rolled only once after 11/11/05, they're correct. I predicted two rolls, but I was wrong. People who voted other than 1 roll after 11/11 is also wrong.
