So I walked in the store today and told the clerk I was going to be like the guy in Fountain Hills who spent $10. and won around $200 million. He looked at me and smiled as if he was thinking of winning it himself. lol.

    I think most everyone in the world knows the "cash option" is less than the advertised jackpot.

    Aren't we one of the few if not the only one to do an advertised annuity amount?

      I only follow the lotteries that I play, so I would not know.

        I spent my usually $20 when it gets around this amount

          Good choice. I wonder if it is high enough yet for people like Boney who need a certain "EV" to play?

            I take it you're stuck on 12 Smile 

            I am visiting family in Maryland so I may splurge on a few and will pick 12 for one of them. Good luck!

                LOL. Thanks.

                Its actually very funny anytime I hit a bonus number because "overcoming the odds is impossible"

                  Got my tickets from a liquor store (didn't buy booze though) in the small town I just moved to.  They sold a winning state lottery ticket a few years ago.  The clerk was kind of creepy though.  Had that pale skin tone, very thin, and odd disposition.  Kind of a mix of a mortician and zombie.  To top it off he had a lackey standing beside with his arm in his coat.  Thought he was going to whip out an axe and do me in.  I kinda backed out of the store, didnt want to turn my back.  GOT THE TICKETS THOUGH!Hurray!

                    Nice work. We are all hoping that one pays a jackpot so you dont have to go back.

                        My area code is 208 ... which guarantees that I will win.  Big Smile

                            Dang, based on the logic I have to wait until the jackpot reaches almost 800 million, and it never has.   Crying

                              Shouldn't be long before they decide they need 208 white balls to get a billion dollar jp.  Patience, grasshopper.
