    I'll be surprised if it even makes it close to 270,000,000.

    You can't predict random.

      With twenty three players getting 5+0 in Friday's drawing, I expect MegaMillions will be won in one of the next two drawings so it won't even get close to $270M.

        If having 23 2nd place winners was a statistically normal result caused by the number of tickets sold then there would be perhaps a 40% chance of  a winner in the next drawing. For whatever reason there was an unusually high number of 2nd place winners, and in reality the chance of a winner in the next drawing is much closer to 20%. Even with large increases in sales the chance that it will roll at least twice more is better than 50%. That gives it a pretty good shot at getting close to 270, and a 3rd roll would probaly push it past 300.

          I stand corrected so I say let the good times roll, I'll be trying to get a piece of that $325M this Friday.

            I'm thinking (WiSHING)  $400 Million plus............     With the the Economy the way it is, people losing jobs left and right I think people will be buying tickets like never before.   A chance at financial freedom looks pretty good in these troubled times.   (But one note of caution don't go over board and spend your rent money, food money, house payment!!!!!)     Since I live in a pretty small town and not many restaurants are open at  11pm besides Taco Bell...anyone who cares to come is invisted to my celebration party at the WAFFLE HOUSE!!!!    LOL!!!!!!!   Scattered, Smothered, and Covered for Everyone!!!!!!!!    Plus it will be fun messing with the news folks maybe hire a body double to ride around in a limo with a tuxedo.   While I wear my regular t-shirt and jeans..........

             

            Such wonderfull daydreams when these jackppts get up to these huge amounts!!!!!!   I love it!Evil Smile
