It's closer to a 65% chance of hitting tomorrow, because many duplicate numbers will be sold.

    I'm guesstimating that it will be a 1 in 24 chance at a rollover.

      If it rolls, I for one will be ready.  I bought tickets for two draws - just in case.  Better to have a ticket for $12M, then to have to make the drive again.  Being positive, when I hit tonight, I'll have tickets left over for Wednesday.  Something to do while waiting for the cash transfer.  Remember, holiday Monday, so no cash until Tuesday.  MM is Tuesday.

      Cheers

        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!

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

            Ohhh - I was thinking the milk would expire; expiration date.  You know, husband too dumb to put it in the fridge. Guess I was married too long.

                That is still a good pay out. Had that a few weeks ago, only two numbers away from paradise. Hurts alot worse than missing entirely.

                    Course the pay out is a lot better if you only spent a dollar as opposed $100. lol.

                      Yeah, at least you got something from the draw. I didn't get a single damn number between my two tickets!!

                          The winning ticket was sold in Nebraska.  Big difference.  Could be out of state winner.  Could be a pool.  Could be a lost ticket.  Impatiantly waiting for the press conference.  Nothing can be done until Tuesday anyway.  Bummer winning on a holiday week!  Won millions and can't get a single penny of it.  Brother, can you spare a dime, has a whole new meaning. 

                          Cheers

                              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.

                              Capped?  I keep reading this here and there.  I've never seen this info on any of the PB web sites in states that offer PB.  There is a maximum amount that the PB jackpot can reach then?  Is that true for MM, too?  What is the source of this info?
