WOW!!!!!!  I would have thought an announcement and an increase would have been released by now.  I could be wrong, but certainly by tomorrow there should be an increase.  Maybe they will increase it today, Im just so surprised they havent already increased it!

    Have you checked the Mega Mill site? It clearly states the amount...Currently at $244 Mill

      Thanks. Maybe I wasnt clear.  What I was referring to was the fact that when it gets crazy with lottery purchasing because of a large jackpot, as it was a couple of months ago, the JACKPOT would be increased prior to the drawing.

          Lately it seems both Mega Millions and Powerball have been highballing the advertised jackpot and when it comes time for the drawing they announce it a little bit lower than what's been stated.

          Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

          Lep

          There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                .........I thought the same thing as well.

                I guess they are going to wait until tomorrow....and even then they may not do anything until after the drawing AND only if the MM jackpot rolls........THEN, the excitement will pick up for Friday.....

                  If no winner, going to $304M.....

                  Or about 194 cash

                  Or for me 111 million after taxes....

                    By the time Friday comes along, I anticipate this being at least $380,000,000 to $400,000,000

                      No one is going to win and the jackpot will just roll down to 12 million because they feel it gets too high. I havent seen a winner since last Aug!
