    I agree with you that the media hasn't ran off the cliff with this JP as yet and that there is an overall impact due to the price increase, but it seeems as though you are employing a losing strategy.

    Do you think it's only possible for YOU to win when all combinations are sold out?

    Just when the media was readying itself to build the hype around the jackpot, a big man from a small town with his own picks snagged a $337m jackpot.

    It can be won any time.

    The key is having the winning numbers.

    I think that should be your primary focus.

      I think it will be won Wednesday night.

      However, I won't check my ticket until Thursday so I can dream one more night that I won...

            Your lucky to have a greyhound track in Alabama.  Religous right is what is keeping the lottery out.  You can still drive across the state line to Georgia and get tickets there.

              Because people are stupid here.High morals high religious values the Alabama will always be 50 years behind on anything that could benefit the state.They would rather we go to Tennessee or Georgia and help them out I sure do my fair share.

                Tennessee was thought to be one of the holdouts on all gambling but it borders 8 states and the state government got tired of seeing all those Tennessee dollars going to other states' lotteries.

                Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.

                    I was just about to start a post asking if the other state lotteries were advertising this.

                    Idaho was starting to ramp up advertising when the JP his 100 million or so, but I have seen nary an ad for this run.  Weird.  They are running ads for the raffle.  Maybe all their budget went for that?

                      I didn't notice that doesn't make sense till it was too late to edit.

                      What I meant to say is that in the past Idaho started heavy advertising with their guy dressed up as a huge red ball as soon as the JP hit 100 million.

                        I think folks will still spend the same amount of money this time that they did on the record $656M this past March even though they are only getting half the tickets.

                        Looks like the frenzy is getting started late this time around, but since it ticked up to $500M today the buying frenzy is going to be in full force tonight and especially tomorrow. I expect a minimum of two more jackpot increases, one tomorrow afternoon and the other just after drawing time.

                        Two winning tickets looks likely on this one.

                          At first will the $2 price tag, I didn't there would be enough tickets sold to get the coverage to have a winner more likely than not and the jackpot might roll again.  But with frenzy that's reported I'm not sure any more.

                          Maybe I'll buy a couple of tickets just to say I was in it just in case.

                            I understand the tickets going from $1 to $2 would put a crunch on system plaers bankrolls but by the same token for people to kvetch about having to spend an extra $1 to win half a billion is really kind of entertaining.
