When MM hit $315 million one time during it's previous run, one ticket won the jackpot [happened in CA] while 19 other tickets matched the first 5 numbers. I hope MM continues to roll and reach $365+ million this time with one jackpot winner.

    I was right all along.  It did go over $250 million.  I think the sales are going to be pretty strong and the jackpot will be over $267 million.  I've noticed that when they under estimate the jackpot someone wins it.  We'll see what happens this time.

      The only reason we often see winners when MM underestimates the jackpot is that they only underestimate it when ticket sales are at a point where a winner is likely.  Regardless of what they estimate the jackpot at, ticket sales will be whatever they are, and the probability of awiner is  dependent on how many tickets are sold. Even if sales are a lot stronger than the estimate there's better than a 50% chance it will roll again.

        You are absolutely right.  At the end, in reality, it all comes down to the numbers.  But I still like to believe that there is more than just numbers guiding the outcome.

          MM rolls to $340 million!!!!  It will definitely be re-estimated before the draw on Tuesday.

            The 11 people who voted that the jackpot will reach a new record were right.  It has finally broken the all time record and reached $370 million.

              When this poll is over, even more than 11 people will be right, I'll guarantee it.

                The poll is already over.  It has reached a new record if it rolls tonight or not. Anyone who votes now just wants to be on the "i was right" band wagon.

                  Not to throw a monkey into the wrench, or whatever, but technically, it does look as if everyone who voted was correct.  MM reached all of those amounts.
