    Had a friend tell me (though I have not spent the time to verify it) that they're estimating that the jackpot will actually be worth another $100M before the drawing.

    With all these tickets being bought, the odds of another rollover have to be pretty low, but... could you imagine if it did? They'd probably start estimating the next one at $1 billion minimum.

    Heard it was $970M at drawing time, so yeah, easily. But I'm betting someone won this one and sadly, it wasn't me.

    I read a report that someone spent like $2,500 on tickets from last night.

    This comes to mind when I read this.

    If he had bought all 175 million possible combinations he would have made a profit.

    Yeah, but how many years would it have taken him to fill out the tickets?

    Around 30, and no one couldn't have just asked for 176 million quick picks, the systems would make repeats.
