about 45% from $138M in sales.

The winner probability distribution is as follows:

 

k, number of winnersp(m,k)
045.40%
135.85%
214.15%
33.72%
40.74%
50.12%
60.02%

 

A rollover is the most probable single outcome, although one or more winners is more probable.

    I still got a gut feeling it will be $450M+ on Tuesday. Possibly not, but I'm going to go with my gut this time.

        By the time of the drawing, it will be at least $450M.

          I think the final prize if it doesn't roll would be around $340. A lot of people were getting tickets at the last moment but no really long lines. I think the longest line I remember was in the late 80's for a $20 million lotto game.

            Well, 4 tickets won the MM jackpot. They're in Maryland, Virginia, Texas, and Georgia.
