    My vote is for yes. I think PB will roll and go over $100 million on the next drawing. Then on Saturday one PB jackpot winner will be hit. I would be surprised if PB hits a new North American jackpot record in this current run.

      If it does not, it's my fault :-) .  I realistically voted yes.  Mega Millions did four times in a row when that game had 11 million less combinations than Powerball currently has.

            Which state you gonna buy that ticket in?

            I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

              I believe PA will have one lucky winner who decided to play on a whim this time.

                    UGH!!  Considering the numbers that were picked, I highly doubt there was a jackpot winner tonight!!

                    I did not match a single number.

                         Yep, Powerball made it to $100 million.  This is the first time since July-August 2003 that it took only ten rolls to make it there!!

                          Mega Millions needs only nine rolls to make it to $100 million.

                          it's the christmas season.  the jackpot will keep climbing until the saturday Dec. 24th drawing.  Then it will be won between then and the wednesday Jan 4th drawing.  and then a new jackpot will start to grow.

                           

                          it's always like this.  no one's gonna win until they can come up with a heartwarning awwww christmas press release to get more people to enter, buy tickets as gifts, dream a little dream, whatever.  same as every year.

                              Last year the PB jackpot was hit the day before Christmas and it was only $30 million (as a matter of fact that was split by three players), and that began a lucky string of eight jackpots hit under $50 million, which drove PB to the current 5/55 + 1/42 matrix.  With exception of that, every PB jackpot since 2002 (when PB went 5/53 + 1/42) has been at or above $100 million at Christmas time.

                              There is roughly a 52% chance, if one uses the data from the recent $340M jackpot run, that the jackpot will rollover 3 more times and approach approximately $170 million.  There is roughly an 8% chance, if sales closely track that run all the way through, of matching the $340M jackpot (which would, should it occur, probably actually be a $360M jackpot since the cap will kick in later) .  There is a 2 to 3% chance of exceeding that jackpot.

                              These are the rough mathematical approximations of the situation.
