Multi-draw is a matter of supreme lazziness for me. I am too lazy to drive the 50-mile round trip on Saturday for Saturday's draw, then again on Sunday for Wednesdays draw. Although, under normal circumstances (non-rain or non-snow) it is a pleasant drive.

Cheers

I only trust myself - and that's a questionable choice

    Heck at today's gas prices I would say that is very practical rather than lazy. Even more so if you play the same numbers on a constant basis........................... I myself however don't(play the same numbers)  but I don't even have to drive more than ten miles and still play multi-draw. When I do play MM I also do multi-draw I play a lot less of MM these days but like many when it does get up in larger numbers I do play a little. Here I go rambling again I hope todd doesn't catch me in a boo boo again. Getting gun shy about doing any posting

      like i said before go ahead and ramble. i don't have to drive at all to play the megamillion. i always play the mutltidraw ticket. i am a big fan of the big games. i don't play the pick 3,4,5 games. if i feel i am going to loose i would rather loose on a chance to win big. multidraw is my way of playing and not having to go to the store every time to play my numbers. over the last 10 years all my hits have been on a multidraw ticket.

      i live in washington and i drive to oregon most of the time to get my powerball tickets. i always get me a multidraw ticket. matter of fact i win their more than my home state. i feel powerball is a nicer game and i win on it more than megamillion. i don't think i have won more than 5 dollars on the megamillion and it's predecessor the big game.

      if you like playing the big games (wheel or no wheel) i feel the multidraw is the best way to play if you play all the time. now if we could just convince oregon to go to 10 drawings or more!!!    things would be just great. i would spend more money down there and not have to go once every two weeks.

        This is really the biggest jackpot for them in 2 years?  I bet they are pattening themselves on the back for adding those 2 white balls.  haha

        Brad

          The only reason this jackpot is the biggest for them in two years is because the annuity is inflated.  The CVO of $117.1 million is less than the CVO of just over $125 million that occurred for the May 28, 2005 drawing (the annuity was $220 million).

          Now if it does not get hit tonight, THEN it will truly be the biggest jackpot they've had in two years.

          In a couple of hours, when I have the sole winning ticket, that annuity thing won't matter. I'm going for the full green up front. That $60M in Federal taxes turned any thought I had on annuity to dirt.

          I hope Todd has a clean pressed shirt I can wear to the press conference tomorrow!

          Cheers
