            Looks like the cash prize should be over 200 million. A first for US jackpots.

              Not bad for a game that's so badly broken, eh?

              The Ohio lottery website seems to be a pretty good source. It's one of the fastest to have updated info, and it lists the cash value, which is nowt 202.7 million.

              First to pass 300 since last February, and a new US record by a  pretty good margin.  Based on the sales estimates there will still be about  a 50% chance for another roll.

                  I bought 3 quick picks for this drawing from 3 different places in my zip code area all three of the tickets had the number 16 in the second position on the line. And 2 of them had the same mega ball 44. Man it burns me up when i get qpicks with the same numbers.

                    They had estimated sales of $110,612,211 (source: lottoreport) and only 14 second prize winners.  They only upped the jackpot by $65 million but I think they will re-estimate it to at least $355 million before the drawing on Tuesday.

                          The roll just shows that probability works about the way we should expect it to. There was better than a 50% chance it rolled, and it did what was most likely.

                          The last jump was about 70% bigger than sales for the previous draw, and the current estimate looks to be for a modest 10 to 15% jump to about $125 million in sales. I'd guess that twisted is right and we can expect a revised estimate that's at least  $10 to 15 million higher, and even a fair chance that the annuity value will beat the PB "record".

                              You can always walk. Columbia isn't that far away and exercise is good for you.
