interesting.. noone won and now it's only $900M?!
it only went up $25M?
WTF?
Last night it was estimated at $940M, which I feel is still a reasonable target. I've never seen them downward revise the estimate like that before!
It seems low because Monday is somewhat of a softer day for Powerball sales (IIRC this is the new, third weekly drawing that was added). Otherwise, $1B would certainly be in play for the next jackpot after $875M.

There's also Mega Millions for a measly $640M on Tuesday. :p

$1.5B = ~$600M after lump sum + taxes

For me, it'll be 3,6,7 or 9

First time I've bought lottery tickets in probably five years. Bought two tickets, matched exactly one of the winning numbers. Now I remember why I don't play that suckers' game.
