To fund the annuitized $310,000,000 jackpot for Tuesday the states will have to sell a little less than 88,500,000 tickets.  I believe they will sell more than that.  A lot more. 

To fund a new record jackpot they need a cash option of about $214,000,000 (1.6984 interest rate factor)

To get that jackpot they need to sell more than $98,000,000 more in tickets then they are expecting.

We will need to have the jackpot roll one more time to see the record be beat.  I don't think we are going to sell over $170,000,000 in tickets for this drawing.

    I believe that on Tuesday the jackpot will be won, but if it does roll I think the next jackpot will only be about 350-370 million.

      I believe that Tuesday's MM draw on 11/15 will roll. So I think the next roll will be 365+ million. I think someone [1 ticket will win the MM jackpot once MM breaks their own North American jackpot record.

          We could be looking at ultimately a $100 million roll if it's not hit Tuesday.  Powerball's final roll would have been $100 million on its recent great run if not for its "share the winnings" feature.

          bellyache, I don't think there is any chace that the next jackpot if it does roll again would be as low as 350 million, and it would almost certainly be more than 360 million I think, how could it be thought probable it would be lower than 360 million for your number range to begin at 350 million?  I agree with Just6ntlc  I Agree!

            It might start as 350-360 if it rolls and then they just bump the jackpot up as sales dictate.

              If by some miracle it does roll tomorrow night I believe they will announce the jackpot at $365 million.  Just so they can say this is the largest jackpot ever.  But by the time all is said and done by Friday night it would be over $400,000,000.

                    This is where the mass unflux of players actually hurts the chances or it rolling over.  If sales of tickets increased by like 30%-50% over Friday's drawing then we would still have a chance of having it roll over.  I believe sales will be very much higher than that though.  I say they will sell about 120-130 million tickets.  With that there would only be about a 30% chance of rolling.  I guess we will just have to wait and see tomorrow night.
