The jackpot has been climbing since March 9 and is now up to $454 mil.

Do you think that since the matrix change and there consistently being no jackpot winner that Mega Millions will reach the $1 Billion mark like Powerball did back in January earlier this year?

      According to USA mega, there have been 282 drawings since the last matrix change. If it hasn't happened in all that time, I don't think it will now.

          I Agree!

          We're in the beginning of the month but however it could do it next month. I surely hope not and hope a winning ticket happens in by Fri or in the next 2 weeks.

              I like to see it roll to see how large it will get.  I always think if all the people who wait to play at $200, 300, 400, or 500 million had played earlier, it might be won sooner.  just my two cents

                It's certainly possible but it has and will continue to be a slow process to hit that mark. This MM run and the current PB run have been suffering from much lower handle then other runs in even the recent past. This MM run needed 34 drawings to cross the 500M mark while the 648 MM jackpot from 2013 accomplished that in 24 draws. The 656 MM from 2012 did it in an even shorter time period, only needing 21 drawings.

                  I think that 15 members will get the mega number and at least 4 numbers.  As soon as Maddog has the mega challenge I am def playing it on Fri and it will have to be before 330 pm.

                      .

                      As long as it continues to climb,
                      I'll be wondering how many ways the jp will split,
                      on Friday's drawing..


                      This will start becoming so routine and redundant.

                      • 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)

                        It's tough what with interest rates and all.  If the rates go negative here like they did in Europe then the annuity amount will be less than the cash amount!

                          No, It probably will not go that high. But you never know.

                          Just remember that most recent JP winners did not play that many combos. 2 or 3 sets?

                          So watch your wallet. There is a chance but it does not have to be your ranch!

                          It's nice to dream, but it is always nice to be able to play for the next drawing too!

                          Always play responsibly.

                            I think it will be hit on friday since they raised it today to $540 million.  But if it rolls to tuesday then tuesday for sure.-weshar75
