I bought 2 $10 QP tickets. Is that a lot to spend or what?

    Only if it was more than you could afford to lose.  I'm sure there were some who spent a lot more.

      In another thread, someone said Richard Lustig who has won 7 Florida lottery jackpots suggested playing 7,20,32,45,46 with megaball 28 on yesterday's Morning Show.

      Shows what Richard Lustig knows about winning Florida lotteries doesn't apply to multi-states lotteries.

          When I was browsing YouTube the other day for lottery videos I saw one where a guy runs a very large lottery pool and for the December 26th drawing last year they spent $842. The guy who did win that jackpot only spent $6 (or $3 if you don't count the purchase of the 3 additional tickets). Just goes to show it really is luck and not how much you throw into the game.

          Though having said that I too threw in a good amount for this drawing (and the past one). I haven't been doing PB drawings for a while though so it's not really eating into the lottery budget.

            That video is awesome!

            You know, you can post a You Tube video right in your post by clicking the "Insert Video" button on the toolbar (looks like a little green film strip on the button).  You paste the You Tube link (URL) into the File/URL space, and click OK - that's all!  It looks like a yellow square in your post, but when you post the message you get this:

            Thanks for that reminder, I usually do that on other sites but was tired and didn't think to look to see if this site had that.

              He is no expert. He has never won Florida Lotto (odds 1:23 million). What he has won is a couple of Fantasy 5 (odds 1:377 thousand) and a split Mega Money Jackpots (1:3 million) and a couple of smaller scratch off ticket prizes. All he is doing is using his "celebrity" to get people to buy his book so he can buy more tickets.

              A true expert would have at least won Florida Lotto at least a couple of times.
