Given the changes: Do you see either jackpot breaking the $200million ceiling?

Personally, l don't. More importantly, stay Healthy folks and dont forget to wash your hands.If you have, do it again.

Right now MM has the best chance seeing that happen since the jackpot is $145/$115. If you're meaning the annuity, it might make it, but it's gonna take a lonnnnng time. Tix sales are down. I'm toying with the idea of buying a ticket tomorrow since I'm taking my wife to the dr, I'll already be out. But, stopping at one extra place that I don't need to?

I could see MM hitting it - being the only high jackpot game right now - but it will be a slow roll.

I am sure less people will be buying $2 PB tickets for 20m jackpot and shifting to MM 145m - but sales have declined so not sure how long it would take.

You could be right. I should have prefaced, ""Once they both revert to $20Mil startup." That will be an uphill battle if this virus continues to persist. Hope all goes well with your loved one.

I Agree!..Kinda like watching a horse & trailer with an immense load slowly inching it's way uphill.

If they made it only a $1 to play I'd get out and help push more Yes Nod

Yeah, but it will take 50 or so draws to get there.   Extending the odds was a bad enough idea, but extending the odds and eliminating the claimed reason for extending the odds, bigger prizes, is Trumpian in its cluelessness.

There are enough 'creature of habit' players who don't care how bad the odds are or how low the jackpot is. You can count on them to build up the jackpot week after week.

True. Cheers

Nope, it's way too easy to win in New Jersey.  We'll be lucky to ever see it roll over $50 million again.

Now its 159/125, so if it keeps at this pace it should break it in 4 plays.

I hope we don't for a while.  It would be great if the j/p's could be won before they hit 30M.  LOL - I could be extremely happy with 29M... after taxes 9M?  That should last a year or so.

The current cash values are 80% to advertised jackpot. So you'll have a lot more than $9M after taxes from $30M dollar jackpot. Personally I'd like to clear $100M after taxes. Could I survive off less? You bet. $100M sounds like an amount that you are set for life.
