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.

I suspect you're right.  The last $370M MM jackpot sold about 212,000,000 tickets.  The rollover probability was around 10%, making it a long shot on top of a long shot. 

It could happen, but I suspect it won't.

    I hope Powerball continues to roll and reach $415 million before a jackpot winner has been announced to step forward and take cash value. I hope Mega Millions continues to roll and reach $500 million until there is one jackpot winner in California to step forward and take cash value.
