Um, the odds are 1 in 120,526,770. This means that at maximum 20% of the available combinations could be covered. Actually statistics show that the amount of uncovered slots on a drawing with 25 million tickets sold is 81%. The probability of the jackpot rolling over doesn't fall even to 50% until the number of tickets sold reaches 83,542,791. This would occur where the jackpot jumps by about $53,000,000. I cover the probabilities of rollovers after each drawing on the "Probability of a rollover in MM and PB" thread, usually updated in the early morning after each drawing.
