If we have a rollover again, will it hit $400 Million, or will this jackpot be won on the Saturday Feb 18 drawing ?

    No, in case you've forgotten, jackpot growth is capped at $25mil per roll at this point. The highest it could go is $390 million.

          Some one out buying milk and bread will buy the winning ticket for PB!  They will have better odds if their spouse tells them not to purchase a ticket!

          Cheers

              If the Powerball does roll the $390 million annuity will be a big prize and so will the Match 5 bonus prize pool.  It will probably be around $70 million or higher for 2-22-06.-weshar75

                You can win 400 million Saturday night by having one set with all 6 numbers and several other sets with the wrong bonus ball and Power Play = Yes. (Imagine if Archie Herring had the Megaplier????)

                I predict that the winner(s) will be tomorrow night, a group of people from a supermarket.

                (poll idea: predict where the winner will be from!)

                  With the Powerball structure, the jackpot will only grow by $25 million each draw and the balance will roll into the match 5 level.

                    I predict the winner will come from the milky way galaxy, planet earth, Northern Hemisphere and speak more then one language :)

                    And she'll have blonde hair , green eyes, and be finally ready to Live her dreams with the stress free financial lifestyle!

                    There will be no need for the jackpot to roll, its getting HIT on Saturday! :)

                        As I said in another thread, I wonder when the cap will go into effect and the second prize will start to go up? I think it was like a million before, and continues to go up?

                          Also it is not like anyone would ever actually see "$400 million" anyway, even if they did pick the annuity. I would much rather have that much money while I am young, not when I am 60. But after choosing cash, and taxes $400 million is actually about $150 million or so, which is still more than enough.

                            The cap has already gone into effect because it's in record territory. Whenever the jackpot is a new record for Powerball, the jackpot is capped.

                              And then it will sit on the sink until 11:00 on the night it expires.
