Usually the jackpot goes from $12 million to $16, $18, or $19 million.

Last night's e-mail said it is now $15 million, I don't think I've ever seen it go from $12 to $15 million before.

Maybe it's just not getting the play because the Powerball is $200 million.

What?

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 would hope so.

      Estimated jackpots are based on interest they can expect an annuity to pay, maybe the lower estimates are based on lower interest annuities are paying now.

          I was surprised this morning at the low increase. I agree it's probably because of PB.

            I hope it won't be the norm.  We get such piddly increases with SuperLotto in California, don't need that happening with MM. (funny, talking about millions as "piddly", but odds are I won't win so it's all monopoly money to me)

            Looking through previous results, it's happened before, but it's been a while.

            MM  Tuesday, September 16, 2008   $15 Million

            PB  Saturday, September 13, 2008  $136 Million

            _________________________________________

            MM  Friday, December 08, 2006   $15 Million

            PB  Wednesday, December 06, 2006   $20 Million

            _________________________________________

            MM  Tuesday, October 03, 2006   $15 Million

            PB    Saturday, September 30, 2006   $15 Million

            _________________________________________

            MM  Tuesday, September 26, 2006   $15 Million

            PB  Saturday, September 23, 2006   $203 Million

            _________________________________________

            MM  Tuesday, August 08, 2006   $15 Million

            PB   Saturday, August 05, 2006   $204 Million

            _________________________________________

            MM  Tuesday, July 25, 2006   $15 Million

            PB   Saturday, July 22, 2006   $116 Million

            _________________________________________

            MM  Tuesday, July 04, 2006   $14 Million  (<--- wow!!)

            PB    Saturday, July 01, 2006   $40 Million

            _________________________________________

            MM  Friday, January 13, 2006   $15 Million

            PB   Saturday, January 07, 2006   $57 Million

              What?

              It is rare to see $$ only go up by $3m ( I know, how can I say "only" and $3M in the same sentence!)

              But I too think it was because PB had a large jackpot....

              What  would really be rare....and kinda cool....is if on Friday 6/3/11, the Euro jackpost gets hit.....  Caliafornia Super Lotto Plus will be (for a nano second) the largest jackpot....(that's guessing if MM rolls to amt under SLP)

              As slow as it California Super Lotto Plus climbs...being at the top of the board would be rare indeed!

                what's $1 million to MUSL paid out over 26 years? I'm sure it's just a coincidence
