       Why need that much of money? I can change my life with just $100,000.

        Exactly  gogidolim,

        What would it hurt to give away $100,000. to 25 lucky losing tickets, each time the jackpot goes higher??

            It would hurt something fierce, because it would diminish the next jackpot by $2.5 million, which I intend to win.

            Screw the losers, let them have their own rant and rave party!  Party

                Sounds like just having a decent job would change your life if $100,000 would do it.  Problem is, people who had such jobs and lost them also had their lives changed too.

                    Doing that would just increase the 47% Romney was talking about.

                        taking in $6 mill means $3 mill extra for the prize pool and only giving $2.5 mill to lucky losers would leave an increase for the JP you are going to win....... More money for you AND more money for losers.....

                            Five people came close to resetting the jackpot last night.  How long can it keep growing if that increases the next time which I suspect will because $200,000,000 jackpots bring out even more players.

                              Yes.... I would gladly buy an extra 100 or even 200 QPs knowing that 99% of them are going to be losers.
