So no one won PB last night but I was disappointed to see that it only rolled to 190 mil.  The previous two times that it was in the 170-175 mil range it rolled all the way up to 212 million.  Any speculation as to why it's 17-22 mil less this time around?

        The annuitized value shown in the draw video was only 164 million, less than the 170 advertised.  Apparently something, possibly low expected interest rate, adversely affected the annuitized value.  This could foreseeably affect the annuitized value of the next jackpot.

        Notice the cash value went up to 99 million.  The cash value had been slightly less than half the annuitized value; now it's 4 million more than half.  I suspect it's a function of forseen interest rates.  Under the previous calculation scheme, this cash value would have been worth about 200 million.

          Great answer!

          Yep, it's ONLY $99 mil cash!  :-)

          I do think that even with that "low" amount most people would not have to go to work.

                It's getting near the point where someone wins, so you may not a chance to play for more for a while. Let It All Out

                  That's true RJOh, I better play in that case.

                  It's just that I can't survive with just 99 million cash option. Who can live a decent life with only that much?

                      That will only affect what the jackpot winner gets, for the rest of us the payouts aren't effected.
