No one won the $33 million dollar MM jackpot today and the jackpot for Friday is $44 million dollars.

That was a $11 million dollars jump.  So if 50% of lottery sales money goes back into lottery prizes, and lets say that about 60% (pretty moderate) of the 50% goes into the jackpot rollover, that means they are predicting $36 million dollars worth of lottery sales between now and Fridays drawing.

Pretty cool.

    The last time the jackpot rolled over from ~$33 million was on Oct.28: the jackpot was $35 million, and rolled over to $42 million ($7 million increase).  Thanks Texas for the extra $4 million this time!

      I wonder if they have ever under estimated the lottery rollover.

            If MegaMillions keeps the same format, with Texas the rollover amounts should be better than that of PowerBall!!II

                        Looks like lottoking is looking for some new folks to string along with his prediction foolishness.  Lottoking can't make himself a winner, let alone anyone else.

                              it happens, sometimes when the powerball sales exceed expectations they will actually CHANGE (Increase) the announced value of the jackpot before the drawing date.

                              Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.
