I posted about a $400,000,000 Jackpot, and will either ever reach that plateau, but the real question is will either ever reach a $200,000,000 cash option.  I think Mega Millions will.

    Seems powerball would as it has been jumping up a lot higher, but I do see that MM has a higher cash option.

    I just dont see it happeniing anytime soon.

      Easy. It's Mega Millions, and I can even tell you when. March 2007.

        which one?

        1 small issue, PB cant even if it wanted to


        PB has a jackpot cap of 390m, atfer that, all money gets spread out to 2nd place winners

        its rather stupid rule, a cap on a rolling jackpot of all things


        and sense powerball cash jackpot is often less then 50% of the annuity ,

        even if it made it 390m, cap only goes up 25m once hit

        to 415m, sure be below 200m cash!

        it would take 3-4 diff jackpot records to get the cap to allow above 200m cash with their annuity cap of stupid rules


        like people above me said

        our only hope of having a jackpot above 200m cash is mega millions,

        when your talking record breaking jackpots, mega millions is the only "real limitless jackpot"

        i like think of pb as a fast race car, once it hits max speed,

        it then crush's into a bloody wall

        while mega millions keeps going right by pb  at same speed ,with bumper sticker that reads

        "Rofl can't touch this PB"


        now to get lucky and see the day MM sets new records, hopeful this roll or this year
