      Man, that type of money would be life changing. Even if I shared it with 5-10 people, I'd be set for life. I can move to the richest town in NJ and be Chris Rock's neighbor. And I wouldn't have to invent teeth. LOL.

       

      From what I understand about Alpine, NJ, anybody driving there that don't belong will definitely get dealt with by the police. My parents would get a small house near my brother so that they don't have to fly up twice a year (he's mentally disabled and is in a group home), my sister's mortgage would be paid off and neice would go to college on a full ride (up until her doctorate, if she so wishes, and will figure out a way to take care of those who took care of me throughout my life. And I would still have enough to have me and generations be set for life.

      Man, we need to get into a pool! If all of us pooled our money, and resources, we could get this jackpot!

        You do know thatTennessee is almost 500 miles from end to end? It might help to know where in Tennessee you live. If it's Memphis it's goint to be a long drive. If it's Bristol the walk might not be enough to get some good exercise.

          Sounds like you have enough folks in your family you want to help to start a pool among you all.  Good luck.

              You're right about Both parts,  In Bristol  you can walk across the street,  of Main St.

               and be in another State,   about 10 Feet.

                  True, but I'm talking about a pool that will allow me to do full wheels...like spending $100 a drawing type stuff. LOL. Besides, my parents are no where near any MM or PB state. (Out of country). They retired to "Pega"-land. I don't even think they play that. LOL.

                    You know what, I do like Upper Saddle River. That's where Rev Run lives and that is a nice house. In truth I hate all of Bergen County, but if I don't want to leave Jersey for awhile, that's where I'd have to run to so that I'm not chased down by beggars. I am already planning an escape route in the oft-chance I DO win.

                     

                    Have there been cases of kidnappings, or other form of harm that happened to lotto winners of that huge a pot? (Good) People get evil when they know they have a millionaire living by them. On my mother, that would never be me, but I can't say the same of other folks.

                      Have you ever tried spending a $100 on paper?  If you've convinced yourself it worth trying then you probably could afford to do it on your own at least once.  I played 46 lines last night and only got a 0+1 because I played all 46 bonus numbers.  I don't know if I will try that again this Friday but if I do I'll just have give up some other pleasures for a while.

                        Woot! Got my first set of tickets at lunch.  White BounceI'll probably do 5 more Thurs and Fri, different times of day.  I might even wait until last minute on Friday just for the fun of standing in line. Hurray!

                          I think it rolls one more time.  We hit $400 million.

                            No, but I am learning about playing on a system. Playing $100 with QPing doesn't really appeal to me or even $500.

                             

                            I can definitely afford to play $100 for Friday, but not without at least trying to work on getting at least a 3-4 hit on a couple of lines to have made it worth it. I do believe in my heart I can do it, but I need some consistent luck on my side. That's why I'm here, to learn how to do that.

                             

                            Yes, lotto is fun, and I want to learn how to play with minimum risk and maximum return. What I did find in analyzing the bonus numbers, there were quite a bit of numbers that have never hit. But then again, each number has a 1:46 shot of being a bonus number. For a shot at $325 million, I think I can definitely want to try that. :)

                              I walked by one of the self serve terminals Tuesday night here in CA - about 15 minutes before draw break - no one in line!

                               

                              I remember when a $60 million jackpot would trigger lines of people trying to get into any available lottery outlet...

                               

                              As far as demand, with the distribution networks and modent systems in place today versus even 10 years ago, the member states could easily handle enough sales to surprise people. I wonder how big a jackpot would have to get to really set off "lotto fever" again.

                               

                              Maybe I just live in a low-propensity area...but I will definitely have my ticket for Friday night.

                               

                              Good luck to everyone and thanks to Todd for such a great Board!
