If Powerball rolls this Wednesday, it is shaping up to be a similar frenzied ride to last springs record Mega Million drawing.  Party

With increased ticket prices and Black Friday behind us, it should be perfect conditions for this record jackpot to grow.

Any predictions from our enlightened members. What?

Buckle up and enjoy the ride!  Naughty

    I chose 725, I like that number, at ther gas station yesterday, I watched people getting cash from the ATM to buy lotto, only a matter of time before some of them max out their credit cards.

      It won't roll, but it will bump to $625m by Wednesday.

        It will definitely be a frenzy. Especially with the holiday season approaching expect to see long lines @ the state lines.....

            IF it rolls, I'd say about 575. But as everybody gets excited about the advertised annuity amount, it's the cash amount that really counts.

            I'll just buy my usual $2 tic.

              If I hit the 3 digit before wednesday, I'll get a couple more, my usual is 3 tickets, I'll splurge and get 10 more.

                    It's amazing how people get into the lottery frenzy. I guess people think that $10 million is not enough and won't buy a ticket, but when it goes up to $425 ($278.3 cash option) million they all start maxing out their credit cards lol. ROFL

                        That is crazy, one year, I remember a guy who had his kids out hunting for returnable cans, he spent it all on lottery tickets, My thoughts, are if you need your kids to scour through gas station garbage looking for cans, maybe you need to use that money to support your kids.

                          If mcginnin56  drops $20. instead of $2. it will be a sign of the mass hysteria that is sweeping the country.

                            Aren't we at the point where the number of second place winners gets into the double digits?

                              Most players would be happy to win $10 millions but many aren't willing to buy a $2 ticket to win it. What?
