If the Mega Millions jackpot continues to roll straight through Christmas, we should have a jackpot of at least $200 million -- with the drawing right on Christmas Day!

Would make for some exciting lottery ticket gifts.... Noel

        Considering historical increases my first thought was that 200 is a bit optimistic, but I wouldn't be surprised if it went as high as 220 or 225. Recent increases are a bit bigger than in the past, partly because the advertised annuity is running almost 60% over the cash value. Factor in the economy driving an increase in sales and a bit of a rush since the drawing is on Christmas, and advertising it at 200 or more could mean a very sizable jump.

        Personally, I'd prefer to wait a bit and welcome the new year by winning 325 or so.

          Not impossible if no one hits until then judging from the last time the jackpot hit $200M.

            The last guy to win big on Christmas day was Jack Whittaker.

            In his case it proved to be a most dubious "win."   I'm not superstitious but...

                        It won't be for $200M, but $12M would be nice too.
