Just read online today from Mega Millions reps and they just said half of the 259 million possible numbers have been bought so far.. So this means the other 50% combos have not been bought up.. Well i think there will be no winners tomorrow or Fridays drawings.. HOLYYYYYYYYY Smokessss Folks are you ready to see a 1.2 Billion Jackpot? I can only imagine if that comes it it and i can see long lines all over the USA even our neighbor Canucks will drive over to buy tickets.. 

Let's get ready to Rumbleeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! Dance

    If over half of the combos have been purchased already and we still have 30 plus hours to go I suspect it will be hit tomorrow night.

        Which half?

        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.

          Paula Otto, executive director of the Virginia Lottery and Mega Millions' lead director, told the Associated Press on Sunday that sales were up by as much as 20 percent over weekend numbers and were expected to spike on Tuesday, the day of the drawing.

          "I think we'll be very close to the record, and maybe even surpass it," Otto said, adding that sales are difficult to predict.

          "Lotto players are procrastinators. They tend to buy on the day of the draw," she said.

          As of Friday, players had bought enough tickets to cover roughly half of the 259 million possible number combinations, Otto said.

            Mega Millions officials have just announced that 258,890,849 combinations have been sold and they are locking out the last one.

            The Superbook in Vegas says No Action on that combination as they consider it a lock, and nothing in Vegas has ever been a lock.

                  Locking out the last one? Does that mean the last combo numbers is going to be the winning numbers?

                    Based on that alone, someone is bound to win it.

                        CoinToss, if this is true then I'm correct about there being 2 or 3 winners, as I stated in another thread.

                         B/C I hav'nt bought my tix. yet,

                        and that means someone already has the #s I will get on a QP,

                        that is unless the w/held combo is whats drawn.

                         

                        If that happens then you're going to hear a lot about how it must be fixed.

                          I want to see a ticket that says: 1 2 3 4 5-- (6), then i'll believe all combos were sold.

                            I wonder if the record CASH OPTION jackpot will be surpassed as well on Tuesday.  Remember the annuity is larger at any given cash value now, since they now pay in graduated installments, whereas under the old record, it was paid in equal installments.

                              So this means 1.? Million combinations are left to play and I really wonder if 259. Million can be sold before drawing deadline tomorrow.....
