I predict the jackpot will be $105 million for Wednesday's draw.

In October, the jackpot went from $88 million to $102 million, but I think ticket sales are a little stronger this month.

    I hope you are right Todd.  If the ticket sales are a bit stronger this month, and if no one wins for the next 4-5 drawings, we will be around $250 million by December 31st.  And someones luck will really change before a whole new year 2004.

      I hope that the odds swing in my favor and someone other than Indiana wins because they have been taking the bulk of the jackpots this year.  I would love to see Oregon or any of the smaller states in powerball win the jackpot this time.

        Not everybody that plays in Indiana is from Indiana, that's where I buy my tickets and it will be time to make a road trip if nobody wins tonight.  I have some tickets from October to cash in.

          would this make a difference?80 million and 100 million are not more  different than those when you win

            just an experiment...

            Given that my success rate with predicting random dvents is nil...

            I predict that I will NOT have the winning QP already purchased for the Powerball tonight...

             

             

            (I wonder if lady luck will fall for some reverse psychology... )

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

                I'm sorry, but $20 million is a huge difference!  From where we're all looking right now, any with the word "milliion" attached to it is too big to imagine, but once you get to that level there is a difference between how many millions.

                       whats shakin chief?

                       always glad to see you as well.  almost had to come to your defense in that other thread until i saw the poster repented (ha).  got your back chief (hax2)

                       did you score some PB tix for tonight?

                       usually i make a run for the so. carolina border when PB reaches $100 bones.  but i might have to wait and see if it gets a little bigger as it is not in the budget seeing how i have to factor in the cost of speeding tix everytime i go (lol).

                       i have a front row seat and i am waiting to watch you turn 3 numbers into 6.

                       todd ,  that was funny (about the "millions").    maybe lottoking wasn't calculating the exchange rate and so maybe to him in "his money",  there isn't much difference in a 20 million differential?  (ha anda lol)

                        Visiondude:

                        I appreciate your thoughts on the "help."

                        Yes, I did manage to pick up some tickets for tonight. Now that I'm working in DC everyday, I am one block away from PB tickets when I want to play.

                        I posted my picks somewhere in here for tonight's PB Drawing. I would sure like to see "Him" turn 3 into 6 tonight alright...

                        Hey, I don't want to hear of your getting a "speeding" ticket. Let's just stick with a QP "ticket." (LOL)

                        Good luck and stay in touch,

                        Chief

                              The Powerball is at $100 million dollars!!!!!!!!!!!  Guess it didnt quite reach the $105 million Todd predicted but I'm still happy.  I has finally reached the threshold where I can start playing it.

                              Good luck everyone.
