    I say the next 5 years. More and more people get jackpot fever each time the jackpot gets real big, which results in bigger rolls. I think Mega Millions will make it before PowerBall will though. I think when it does happen, there will be a $400,000,000 jackpot with a following roll to $500,000,000. I'll probably make the 2 hour drive to Ohio for the $400,000,000 drawing and choose multidraw so I can also be counted in on the $500,000,000 drawing.Big Grin

        we'll never see a 500 million dollar jackpot,as long as the president is republican.they need to give the teachers,off now for summer,a raise as the tax money is being used for something else!

          I am going to have to agree with Guru.   I think we'll see it within the next 5 years.

            when more balls are added to the games.It seems like everytime the mega millions is won more frequently here they come with some more balls to make it harder for you.I could be wrong they could let a 500 mil jackpot come anytime.I don't believe they would create such a game that could not be controlled,in my opinion.

              Correct me if I am wrong , but most Jackpots aren't in the 500 million dollar  CASH$  prizes. If someone wanted the cash option , he/she will only get the cash in the Jackpot , not the future dividends of financial applications ...

                Well, of course. The annuity amount is usually implied when someone says "Mega Millions is at $xxx Million". You're looking at about a $250 Million cash option, give or take a few million.

                  Who in there right mind would want that much money..

                   

                  Geesh.. You people are some greedy!

                   

                  It would make your like a living hell with it all...

                   

                  All you need to win is enough to pay off everything you owe and enough for you to invest and take it easy and not have to work if  you chose not too!

                   

                  3-4 Million is plenty!

                  Quick Piks are the only way to win!

                            My vote is within 6 months. I hope Mega Millions and Powerball continues to roll without a jackpot winner.

                              Interesting that there are 16 votes for "never" and the other choices only have 4 as the most votes...

                               

                              I personally feel we will not see a $500 million dollar jackpot. The fever gets so high when it approaches $350 million or so and it gets hit pretty soon after that.
