I think it covers 48 states, I already played four dollars worth and I really feel like playing more.

Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, Florida, Alabama, Mississippi, Hawaii and Alaska does not participate in the Megamillions game. But their residents can go to the states that play and buy a ticket.

Its going to be crazy... they've already said if no one wins tonight (which is doubtful, but we'll see) that the next set up is going to be 975 million!!

We started a pool in our office - it got up to 70 people playing and over $300!

I just walked down to the 7-11 next to our office building here in the Loop. There must have been a crowd of 15 people in there trying to get tickets. I gave in and bought another $8 worth.

It's nutzo here!

I propose that if any of the CD people win, we all split it.
