Pick a time, any time.  And extra points if you also pick an amount over $900 and it is correct.

Okay, here we go: 

8 am PST; $925 million.

      9:15 am PST   $915 mil

      One of my daughters was born on 9/15 so I'm going with that amount at that time.

      What will they do with the road signs when the PB is over $1 Billion?

      Those signs only have three digits to show up to $999 million.

          The signs are LEDs, they can just put up 1B 1.1B etc.

          not that they even need to advertise it, it's everywhere.

            Final Jackpot amount tonight will be $1,050,000,000.  Today is going to be a crazy day for the Powerball stores.  Hope nobody wins it.... except me...

                Too bad MM was just hit yesterday, had it been it Tuesday I bet it would have been at 1B$ already.

                        I drove by numerous billboards and they were still at $800 million for a long time. I heard on the news that it had finally reached $900.

                        May the balls bounce in your favor!

                            I guess I was being overly optimistic thinking it would reach 1 billion dollars for tonight's draw. Crazy

                              I'll take 2 hours 15 minutes after the drawing.
