$711M + What? 1 more roll

Do you see the rate of sales? A rollover is not in the stars!

    Harvey went to a liquor store and paid $9.00 for a six pack and $7.53 for a pack of cigaretts. The clerk asked him if he wanted to take a shot at PB, with a $500M jackpot. Harvey said, "Naw, not at $2 a ticket."

    Scared

    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.

      The last figure I saw gave a 65% chance of the jackpot being won. It depends on how many tickets are sold by tomorrow night and guessing the QP to self pick ratio is about 95% to 5%.

        That report was at the time of the recent increase. Sales have skyrocketed since and officials are predicting another rollover tomorrow.

         

        Madam Zelda says there's a chance at two increases.

          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.

          Green laugh

          I think when the PB jackpot is this high the $2 ticket price will hurt MM sales more because system players will be using all their resources to play PB.  Tickets sales are so brisk that this jackpot might not roll again so if system players want a chance to play for a half billion dollars they go now or wait and hope another chance comes along in six months or more.

            When this drawing is done and over with it will probably be a quick pick that wins the jackpot. 9 out of every 10 players I've seen this past week are buying quick picks.
