I think they will let someone hit after July 4th.   By then it should be $450 - $500 million.  Let's hear your reaction.

    I have a feeling it'll be hit tomorrow. That said, if it doesn't hit tomorrow then it will keep going up slowly until mid July when it passes the half billion mark and it becomes the big news story of the week.

        How do you pick numbers?  I have watched you.

        I Google the last 25 drawings for the game I'm buying.

        First line are the hot numbers that keep appearing.

        Second line are numbers that haven't shown up for the past 25 draws

        Third line are numbers in the mid range ( roughly 8-17 draws ago), i've noticed that some numbers seem to appear and then go cold for 8,9 etc draws and then re-appear out of nowhere. 

        Depending on factors ( Cash on hand, mood, weather, other stuff i need to do etc) i might use the quick pick generator on LP for another ticket or two.

        I have nothing against quick picks, but i want to create my own luck and not rely on an unnecessary and literal wheel of fortune called the quick pick machine.

            Mr. Wander,

            I like to think it's truly a random game.

            But, when you say "they will let someone hit", I get a little disappointed.

            I hate to think it's a fixed game.


            I used to attend my favorite car show, where there was a prize drawing included with the purchase of the ticket.

            You won't believe some of the nonsense I've witnessed.
            I used to attend this show year after year.  And every year, same doggone thing (fixed drawing).

            Then, one year, as I was going up to the gate to purchase my entry ticket, I asked them

            "So, same fixed drawing as usual, this year?".

            Their reply didn't surprise me.

            All they did was look at me, and shrug their shoulders.

            Mr. Groppo

            • Don't chase the numbers you play.
            • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
            • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                      (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)

              My vote is other because I think someone will hit the largest jackpot in Mega Millions history (cash value) included.

              I hope that one $2 ticket is the only one that matches all 5 numbers plus the Powerball to win the largest Powerball Jackpot in United States history of over $2 Billion Dollars!

                Please watch a few actual drawings, and then inform the LP community what you saw that makes you think the game is rigged.
                Someone would have to be pretty darn smart to come up with a method that can manage 75 balls in a single mixing vessel and put out a specific combination. Not to mention the Mega Ball.
                Sorry, not going to happen!!!
                The Mega folks won't know what the winning combination is until it's known, in a public drawing being monitored by thousands of gamblers.

                    When I read such conspiracy theories the only thing that comes to mind is that even in this lottery community, people do not appreciate the odds.

                      Okay so no one hit as of Tues nite and it's $363 million for 6-24-2016.  Then Tues would have to be around $390 million.  The next Fri would be $420 million and then after that is what I think will happen.   July 5th $480- $550 million.  Unless people want to play more.

                       

                      When Maddog has his Mega Millions challenge I will check it out and post my numbers up.

                        No hit so $390 million on Tues.  Sounds about right unless the news makes a bigger deal out of it.

                            Many people think ball drawings can be rigged, using pre-draws, including me.

                              Well apparently we all know that the Powerball is drawn at 930 est.  So why not feel the same way about mega millions.  Everything is computerized.
