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.

If LL is right and they only stop doing pre-draws when there IS NO WINNER, as high as they want.

I say when it hits a$$$$$ billion $$$$$.

    I predict the jackpot will be reset Saturday the 29th for $300 million (two more draws).  Smash

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

      I think it's more democratic the way it is, I have an equal chance at winning some money with 10 lines at that person that buys 39 lines with all the bonus numbers.  In fact my 10 lines last night matched 0+1 for $4 which I plan on spending Wednesday on another 10 lines.

        I predict it will get so high that they sell 175 million tickets for one draw and still dont give up the JP. And then it will reset after that when they sell over 200 million for one draw......

          I hit for a 1+1 last evening on my two lines, so at least my play was paid for.

          I plan on playing five lines for Wednesday. I'm sure THRIFTY would agree my chances are just as good as the asset managers in Conn.  Hyper

              I didnt have any tickets for last night for my chances of losing were locked in at 100%

                I think you mean Wednesday the 3rd of October.  Saturday the 29th is the draw after the next, and I doubt the jackpot will increase by $100 million in one draw.

                  Your correct ryanm. Thank you for your keen observation! Wednesday the 3rd of October it is.   Thumbs Up

                    Down size. Everyone except the government must do it....

                    Down-sizing is not a option. Only the best will do.

                      The important number is the $128,500,000 cash jackpot and according to http://www.tax-rates.org/   my share would be about $77 million.......
