      They rarely increase the jackpot amount before the drawing.  I imagine it will increase to about $350,000,000. 

       

      I predicted before last drawing that I think it will roll over two more times.

       

      On the California Lottery website, it says the next jackpot will be $430,000,000 if no one wins tonight.


      "Should no one win the jackpot tonight, Tuesday’s jackpot would be at least $430 million, easily eclipsing the largest MEGA Millions jackpot of all time, which was $390 million split by two tickets back in 2007."

        Someone (or likely more than one) is definitely going to win tonight. No way will it roll again.

        You can't predict random.

          The last drawing had about 95,000,000 in sales.  That coves about half the number of possible combinations.

           

          Acorrding to lotto report, the last time the jackpot was this high was in Augurst of 2007.  ($370 M jackpot).3

          There were $137 M dollars worth of sales.  That covered about three fourths of all combinations.

           

          There is probably a 20% chance this jackpot will not be hit.
