Looks like no one has won. That is amazing given that the combinations are "balanced". This year is very exciting for Mega Million.

What are your thoughts?

Are you guys increasing bets for Friday?

Changing strategy?

Considering joining a lottery pool?

Will there be winner(s) for Friday?

Almost 1/2 a Billion dollar. That is sick.

          Thought the odds were 1/175mill and they sold 190mill. Think we caught them in a lie.

            okay so $190M with the odds of 5m being 5+0 so should be at least 38 5+0's. Seems reasonable since there is 46 megaballs..

              It doesn't matter the odds - it's not guaranteed that if 175,711,936 tickets are sold that every combination will be sold. Take the drawing that had 68 2nd place winners - not one had the MB number.. that means SOME had to duplicate.

                That's exactly what I've been wondering...

                    I noticed the state lottery and the mega million offical site has yet to release the new jackpot info. I wonder how LP got it before they could even post them? At the moment LP has the updated jackpot for Friday. Could this be wrong?

                        Powerball.com is reporting the same thing on its Mega Millions page.  Some sites are updated more quickly than others are.

                            I think there is no need to adjust your game play by increasing the bets, you just have to choose more right numbers for next time(s) !

                            Unless I win it next friday, it will roll 1 time more to  $600m :)

                            Then I am ALL in. I may even head down to Delaware to play. Big Apple has so many taxes and no anonomity.

                              I know on the powerball site it was updated before it was on the mega millions site.
