Well, I was proven half right. There were twice as many second place winners as statistically expected, but nobody hit the jackpot. I think the saving grace was that the powerball number was not the largest number of the six.

    CASH Only, if the people who voted over $200 million for PB, they're correct. PB has rolled to 204 million for 8/5. I hope PB continues to roll and finally hit the cap again.

      Powerball needs only three more rolls for a new cap to happen.

        The current cap is $365 million. Mega Millions still might hit $400m first.

          With Powerball's back loaded annuity, it's very possible the next record PB jackpot might be between $365 million and $390 million, in which case there's no match 5 bonus pool but the cap still increases.

            CASH Only, someone in Wisconsin won the PB Jackpot of at least $204 million on this run.

              Both games are running neck-and-neck right now. I like it better when one is high and the other is "mid-range".

                I hope both MM and PB reach over $200 million on this run. It is neck and neck right now.

                  I would seriously doubt both will go over 200. Odds are neither will. I've given up on Mega for now but it would be nice if Powerball could clear the $250 mark so I can get tickets. The trip would be more expensive though due to the high price of diesel right now. ($3.5/gal)

                    I think Mega Millions may get over $200 million this run, simply to make up for its lucky string of winners lately. Luck goes both ways.
