I say, the amount will go to $825 million. What say you?

May the balls bounce in your favor!

    That's fairly accurate if you consider two things, the increase between last draws and there being one less day in between draws.

    I think the media hype will help make up for the missing day.

    It's crazy to see the amount of tickets being sold.  It could very well peak $900M before Saturday's draw.

      I'll be conservative here and call it $740M.

              I'm going on the high end and say it will be $925 million.

                Even with this new matrix it's very doubtful it will roll again, but if it does it will easily go over $1 billion.

                    I said I was going to give up lotto, if it wasn't won Wednesday night.
                    I've seen a 600 mil. jackpot go up 100 million in a single day.
                    And, you're asking if this one will get to 825?
                    Certainly not impossible.

                    But, what am I going to do now?   Am I really going to stop, or am I going to run to the store tomorrow night?

                    (I feel a weakness coming on.)

                        Most people would think ur crazy to not put at least $2 on it.

                          $850 million

                          Guru101 from Indiana,

                          Please, if you are the sole winner, I ask that you kindly part with .5 million to me.   I shall buy a truck and a modest house, for myself.

                          That's all I really need.

                          I shall make the same promise to you, but though I have over/around 20 tickets, and may buy more tomorrow, I already feel unlucky, this drawing.

                          OK, until then . . . .

                              $850 million

                              Ticket sales of $352 million increased the "advertised" jackpot from $334 million to $528 million and if sales double (they should), you're probably correct.
