Mega Millions probably won't make it to $100 million until Tuesday, January 28, assuming it isn't won before then.

    You know folks, I'm expecting someone to surface and say they still think it will be Mega Millions to get to $100M first, and I'm waiting for that same person to insist that QPs don't win most of the jackpots.

    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.

        Powerball is the indisputable winner. Congrats to the 35 that voted respectively. I like the long shot bets but alas...

         

        I am now interested to see how long  these two jackpots will continue to rollover.

         

        The frenzy doesn't begin anymore until they're well over 200 million.

          Good point, I can't wait until we get POWERBALL in Cali.  The Super Lotto here has lost it's steam because it doesn't grow rapidly, just one mil every rollover and that's not enticing enough, Powerball will take most of the money here hands down.

            Original Bey,

            You've got a point about the $200M but once it starts it's like nothing changes except the dates from the last frenzy.

            I still think it's a self jinx for someone to tell everyoine else not to bother playing because they are going to win that night's jackpot.

            No one who has ever posted that ever has.

              Point taken!

               

              Beyond being over confident or swept up in the frenzy, if you're that certain you should BEG players to contribute to your RETIREMENT FUND. (I won't be doing either)

               

              I'm focusing on refining my strategy as we move further into 2013. Talking out of my @$$ doesn't do much to advance that effort - lol.

               

              I must confess though, I am looking forward to the media interviewing now LP member and 7 time lottery winner again for the umpteenth time to solicit his expert advice.

                  But if you're looking at cash value, MM is only a few million short of PB. . . .

                      Super Lotto has a $15 million jackpot. I'd be tickled pink if I won that.

                        In terms of cash jackpots - PB is an estimated $70.2 million (for the "guaranteed" $110 million annuity); MM is an estimated $59 million.
