That is a high jackpot, but this should be in the "Jackpot Games" forum.
I'll suggest that this is a good place. I'm guessing that "Holy Mackerel!" is because of the size of the jump at least as much as because of the jackpot size. It's a large jump, considering the level, and the cash value. The real story here is how well the lottery is doing despite the uncertainties of the economy, and other lotteries losing sales.
