 Let's pretend that there's no jackpot winner in tonight's megamillions. How far will it go up this time? I had a dream a few days ago and saw a staggering amount of money saying 465millions.

    how strange.....i wouldn't ordinarily tell anyone this if they said it to me on the street but I had a dream of 425mill but i don't think it will make it that high on the current matrix.

    I think it will probably get to about 100mill. I think it will roll friday night and get hit on tuesday of next week

      I'd love to see it go to 300 million +.

        I don't really know, but I think it may reach 100 million at least.

          As far as it always goes, until it gets hit!

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

            Considering how fast the dollar is falling it would have to reference Euromillions. The biggest pot they had was €183 or $286 Million but Euromillions recently has had very low jackpots with few rollovers and no changes in the works.

            Powerball can't roll that high because of the cap. Megamillions will most likely never get that high either with it's current matrix. I doubt the current run will be any higher than $150M.

               Does Megamillions have the cap, too? I think the cap for MM is about $500 millions.

                There is no cap for MM. The PB cap is per roll, so PB can roll  as high as any other game. The cap just means that if grows more slowly once the cap goes into effect.

                  And I think it will hit at $150 million this time.  Neither of the jackpots (PB or MM) will go over $100 mil until after Labor Day 2008, if then.  THe next bib one will be a Spring 2009 jackpot bigger than any!  Hopefully a minimum of $595 million! DanceWon by a single player. 

                  To the mathmeticians:  The highest Florida Jackpot won by a single player was $55 mil I think.  With the new option on the Florida Lotto Game, how many rollovers would it take for a player to reach $300 using the $3.00 per play board option?
