I think PB will roll this Saturday. It'll set a new North American jackpot record of 365 million. Do you think PB will roll for this Saturday (poll)? If so, do you think it will reach 365 million or between 340 and 365 million? Explain why or why not.

    I think that Powerball by the time it draws on wednesday night is going to be at least a $310 million annuity so if it does roll the next jackpot will be $365 million annuity and anything after that will be the match 5 bonus pool.-weshar75

      It took only four rollovers to reach $50 million. But that doesn't necessarily mean another record jackpot.

        Nope, especially if lottery fever sets in early like it did for Mega Millions on its last run.

          If PB gets toward lotto fever, I'll set another thread and question again. I hope PB continues to roll.

            Why do you hope it rolls?  Could you explain that to me because I honestly don't get it.  I understand that we all want to win as much as we can.  But you obviously don't even play Powerball.  I mean...seriously...I've never met anyone who bought a lottery ticket and then said I just bought a lottery ticket.  Man!  I really hope the jackpot rolls over for this draw!

            What is the attraction with record jackpots you don't play and therefore cannot win?  Do you understand that when the jackpot rolls over that means everybody lost?  I don't know about the rest of you but I play because I hope to win...not because I want to see the jackpot roll over.

            And to be truthful I'd much rather see more people win on a regular basis then to see 1 or 2 people win a record jackpot once a year. 

            Am I missing something here?

              Yeah, I play to win too, but if I lose I hope it rolls over. Many players complained about that last year when Powerball got hit nine times in four months and sales tanked until Powerball made its first capped jackpot.
