    Ticket sales for the $340M Powerball Jackpot on 10/19/05 were $165M!  I emailed MUSL and asked them, so this number is accurate.  Unless ticket sales go way above $100M for tonights MM drawing, I predict it will roll to Friday, 11/18.

      Not going to roll.  Too popular.  Too much money involved.  You're talking New York & California spenders - not to mention this big spender in New Jesey.

        I wouldn't be too sure about that.  Powerball had a $300 million pot just last month and they still had no winners for that draw - it rolled one more time to $340 million (the limit thanks to the "share the winnings" feature).

        Naw, not gonna roll - I'm tired of making every one suffer and then face disappointment.  I will end it tonight, and with my winnings, buy drinks at the Waldorf.

          If I drove to New Jersey tonight to buy my tickets and won, I would have an extra $4,995,000 by paying CT, not NY tax. 

          Of course this gain would be negated by the cost of sitting on the Hutch, Cross-County and/or Cross-Bronx, and the toll on the George Washington Bridge.

            BUT the toll is only one way.  They punish you for leaving New Jersey, they encourage you to leave New York.

              $6 now on the GWB.

              Guess I could always take the Tappan Zee and pick up my tickets in North Bergen County. $4 on the bridge.

                  The numbers are so low I would venture to guess that more than one person might win.
