    jjtheprince, I agree that they should keep rolling hard.  But, concurrent billion dollar jackpots would be a once in a lifetime event. I am ready to win both. Might as well shoot for the stars !  Party

    Good Luck to all LP Members and players.

        Ditto that.

        Two concurrent billion dollar jackpots would be awesome. But can you imagine how long it would take to build back up a sizable jackpot after they get hit? Plus I'm guessing most people's extra spending money would be wiped out after that.

          it'd be nice to hit the billion mark .... but would settle for a nice hefty $500 mark

            Both these Jackpots are now part of the " Low Hanging Fruit", meaning, they need to be won. In other words Image result for it's gonna be me

              If  you don't buy a ticket and encourage all your friends to do the same, in some small way you will be doing all you can to help it happens.  Good luck.

                I've estimated 12-13% chance of MM being hit and 9-10% chance of PB being hit. I'm indifferent for at least the next 4-5 draws or so Smile

                Those are the per-drawing chances of a hit, right? My estimate for PB Wednesday is 10-11%, with MM Tuesday at 14-15%. If there's no winner, the following drawings are 11-12% and 16-17% respectively.

                  Is your guesstimating based on predicted sales, previsions history of jackpots of similar sizes or something totally unrelated?

                    It's based on sales data for jackpots of similar size over the past year.

                      Anything can happen if some of the members use those work outs that they claim have won in past drawings.  I'll be picking 15 lines very similar to the winning numbers in last Friday drawing and hoping I'll do better than a 0+1 for a dollar.

                           We are all dreamers here. We are imagining what we would do with the winnings. How to go about winning and what we should do when we win. 

                           I am sure that most of us here at LP have written plans to follow when we win D BIG WON !!

                          Good Luck to all !!Cool

                            Those are the per-drawing chances of a hit, right? My estimate for PB Wednesday is 10-11%, with MM Tuesday at 14-15%. If there's no winner, the following drawings are 11-12% and 16-17% respectively.

                            Yes, per-draw. Your estimates for the next drawings are pretty close to mine. I use the theoretical value, which is same methodology that MUSL uses. It looks like sales for MM are going to be pretty low though, considering if not hit tonight the rollover will be lower than the previous 2 (albeit could be related to interest rates). MUSL is also projecting lower sales for PB Wednesday versus the previous draw. I wonder if the bad weather that has been hitting much of the U.S. is to blame.

                            If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
                            If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?
