    Too funny scorpio! I am half tempted to wager that YOU are 100% correct in your prediction.

      Now that MegaMillions has been won and gas prices are dropping, PowerBall $180M jackpot will start looking more attractive to the players in the MM states as it rolls.  If it rolls this Wednesday, I expect a surge of MM players to make a run to the boarder for tickets.  So a player from a MM state could be the winner, it has happened before.

      RJOh, I think PB will be more attractive for this PB draw. However, I hope and think that PB rolls until their PB annunity jackpot reaches between 365 and 390 million and then one ticket wins it all.

        It seems whenever a single game has a large jackpot (Powerball in this case) it gets hit soon. I'm predicting either this drawing at 179 million or one more drawing at 205 million.

        I just don't think this run will come close to any records. 

        dvdiva, PB jackpot for 9/23 has rolled to 203 million. I'm happy that it rolled again. I hope it continues to roll.

          i have experimented with tri states powerball.i bought all 42 numbers before with powerplay,and ended up winning about 12 dollars with quickpicks,so i guess we'll never hit the big one in this area.

              Scorpio,

              I remembered reading a story a few years ago about a couple from your area winning the PowerBall jackpot that had also brought tickets for the wife's office pool.  When the couple cashed in their jackpot winning ticket her co-workers sued them because they thought they should have shared their jackpot with them since all the ticket were purchased at the same time.  The court ruled it was the persons holding the winning ticket that was the winners not the people the winners bought ticket for.  Keep trying, it could happen again.

                That's about $187,000,000 cash, that sounds possible and reasonable.

                    You mean $390 million? Unless you're expecting the jackpot to first land right at $375 million and then roll once more. Record PB jackpot increases are capped at $25 million per rollover, with any excess cash going to the "share the wealth" feature, which is passed down to the match 5+0 winners when the record jackpot is won; the current record is $365 million, so if the jackpot is not already over $365 million, the highest it can jump on any roll is to $390 million.

                        my guess pb will be won in illinois/iowa with some story involved,birthdates,etc!

                        Very interesting prediction!! I mean, seeing as how I live in Iowa and play the birthdays and ages of a former girlfriend and myself.

                          Hi everyone. Congratulations to Iowa for winning the recent PB Jackpot. The jackpot (annunity) hit 200.3 million. I hope the PB jackpot winner from Iowa chooses cash. PB annunity jackpot was won at 200+ million again (two straight).

                            It seems the new limit is 100 million cash although Euromillions might hit that. Too bad you can't get tickets in the US.

                            Powerball does tend to have a run at the end of the year though. It  might break 300 before then.

                              There's nothing wrong with the cash amount never going over $100 Millions, anyone not playing by then is not interested.  After all if there weren't plenty of players interested when the cash was $5 Millions, the game would never get off the ground.
