Tonight’s Mega Millions jackpot expected to exceed $65 million, with a cash value of $43.4 million. With the Powerball Jackpot already over $100 million, i’m starting to think we may soon have Mega Millions joining the the $100 million club. From experience i expect that if the Mega Millions jackpot rolls over (increases for the next draw) tonight, the friday drawing will be for a prize between $81 million and $85 million. If this occurs and a rollover occurs on friday, the drawing on April 14th would likely exceed $100 million.
While it’s all a bunch of “if x and y and z occurs” assumptions, but when you’re a lottery reporter, these little bursts of excitement are always nice to see!
