    On Sep 12. last Friday, it was $12 million and din't get hit.

    On Sep 16, Tuesday, it was $15 million and there was one winner in Ohio.

    Now it's back to $12 million.

    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 the high odds Megamillions hasn't had a really large jackpot since Febuary. I think the only large jackpot left this year will be the Euromillions bouns drawing on 9.26.08. After that I doubt any pot will break $170 million in cash until next year.

            I believe dvdiva is talking about actuall cash value and not the annuity value.  Right now the cash option is 78 million dollars.
