    Prizes are based on cash since that's what counts. Decided to put the current MM game in there since it's number one anyways and even if it rolls it's still number one. See my other thread to see why it looks like this. All the winners chose cash on this list except the OR winner who still hasn't claimed the prize and the current MM game since someone has to win it first.

      AFAIK the OR winners claimed, and they chose cash as well.

          That story didn't really say if they chose cash or not just that they won and got a hummer. I guess every winner has chosen cash so far. It's up to the current MM winner to see if it remains at 100%. It's also interesting to note that the Euromillions winner would be #1 factoring in tax.

            I thought there was an article somewhere that stated they choose cash...

              I hope that the MM jackpot does roll after 11/15 to set a new North American jackpot record of 363+ million. Based upon how the last roll went, it was 48 million from 11/11 to 11/15. So if no one hits, I predict that the cash value reaches 200+ million and estimated at 365+ million [Annunity].

                I'd suspected that this drawing was truly record breaking - inasmuch it is only the cash value that actually measures the true value of the prize.

                That is interesting.

                Thanks for the information DVD.  It is worth noting that as things stand now, this jackpot has an excellent possibility of rolling over again.

                    I hope we all realize that there is an appreciable probability that the prize will be won on this drawing.

                    I don't know what I'll be reporting on Wednesday.  If I am not reporting on the probability that someone wins the $12M jackpot though, it will be interesting.

                      Looks like the new record is 184.6 in CA. It might be awhile for another new record. Hopefully not 5 1/2 years.

                        Congratulations to CA for having the 184+ million cash value winner in Mega Millions for 11/15. The single cash record holder surpasses Whittaker's record of 170.5 million in cash value.

                          So now maybe Jack can live in peace and the press will chase these people. I'd hate to hold that kind of record, although I'd LOVE to win about $100 million!

                            That's providing the new winner(s) don't choose annuity!
