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; 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 ??????/
