I agree with Todd that a $50 ticket would be good for a pool.  Personally I would never spend that much on a ticket just for myself.  The feeling when a person wins must be really great.  But losing $50 on one draw is just too much of a disappointment for me.  It really comes down to a couple of things (a) if you have the extra money to spend in the first place and (b) your type of personality.  Just like the stock market, you can win or lose and there's something I call a tummy factor.  If your tummy can handle the losses and you can also shrug them off your shoulders, then there's always that chance you'll hang in long enough for a win.

I'm sure most people here have watched Deal or No Deal.  I've seen people who turn down offers of over $100,000 only to walk away with $10.  One week I watched part of a show that had a contestant who said she was displaced by Katrina.  Yet she said No Deal to an very large offer. I turned off the set when all the big amounts were gone because I didn't want to watch the show any more.  These people are nuts and I really wonder if it's staged.  Nobody ever says Deal after the first couple of offers even when the odds are bad.  It would make the show too boring.  Anyway, I can't imagine knowing you have a sure $200,000 in your pocket and leaving with enough for a tank of gas.

    hey  I  agree  with  the  board  that $50.00  is  over  the  budjet

    of  the  majority  of  lottery players;  Agree with stupid But  if  you  were  part  of  an  organized  crime  family  and  you  wanted  to  get  paid  a  portion  of  the  millions  that  come  into  a  state  wide  lottery  and  do  it  legaly    then  buy as many  tickets as  you  can;

    THINK if  you  spent  $100 ,000 or $200,000  and  you  knew  where to  look  for  the  best  selection  and  was  guarentted  that  someone  was gonna  win  ....its  not  that  hard  to  put  down  a  large  amount  of  money  if  you  have  inside  information  and  help;

    all  computers  are  man-made  and  operated  by  people ;

    there  is  an  old  saying  _ WHITE  GETS  DIRTY  EASY_  SO  DO'  PEOPLE  WHO WORK  AROUND  ALL THIS  MONEY  were  talking  a billion  dollars  and  thats  just  for  one  Raffel  ticket  sales ;

    there  are  billions  in  other  ticket  sales  as  well ....don't  think  people  have  not  figured  out  a  way  to  baffel  -the -brainless  -public  since  none  of  this  is  by  balls  drawn  but  by  computer  its  who  the  lottery  say  has  won  we  have  no  control,;

    look  why  don't  they  give  these  same  odds  to  the  faithfull  general  public  on  1.00 and  2.00 ticket  sales  ;why  are  they  only  giving  it  to the  high  income  middle-class ??????/

      DOND really bugs me too.  I think the main problem is people get greedy and turn down reasonable $$$ amounts because they'd rather have the million.  Well, we'd all rather have the million, but ya gotta calculate the odds and play with your brain in gear.

      Another problem is that after a contestant does take the deal, Howie makes them continue to open the suitcases and tells them what the offer would have been.  I think future contestants watching that somehow think the contestant was dumb for not continuing to play.  When in reality, the contestant was playing the odds and stopped when they knew they should.  Maybe they could have gone home with more than they did, but had they gambled, they also could have gone home with a whole lot less.  Some people just don't see that.

        I'm afraid TN will not be doing a raffle again anytime soon given the fact they can't even sell their $10 raffle tickets.

        As of last night they still haven't sold all the tickets and the drawing is tomorrow.

        I love doubles and remember, it's just a game!!!!!!

          they have about 24 hours to go according to the website so i guess they will sell them right up until the drawing monday so they may sell them out because they picked up alot this weekend i guess alot of people waited until this weekend or they recently saw the commercial ads. i put up my tickets on the other post but the last one i bought last night was #755772 so they have sold more than i thought they would. i dont care how many they sell as long as im one of the jackpot winners...Cheers
