I do not even play PB anymore due to the price.

      Eventually, yes.  At $2 per ticket, the coverage will be lower at higher jackpot levels, meaning a high chance of a roll.

        What Ruud said, if sales are lower due to the $2 charge for tickets, then there could be a situation of constant rolling.  We'll never know when that will be but it could happen.

          That's a good point. I think another big factor in getting past the $400 mark is how much the previous jackpot is and/or the size of the increase. The lead up to this one went from 290 to 363, selling 191 million tickets, which would have put about 70% of combinations in play. The previous MM record went from 275 to 390, selling almost 213 million tickets, putting about 75% of combinations in play. That's not a huge difference in the number of combinations in play, but the combinations not played would have been 30% and 25%, meaning a rollover was 20% more likely this time around.
