Just curious, how much on average does everyone spend?   At most for me is two dollars, one my pick and the other a computer pick.

I usually spend what ever I feel represents my best efforts to win which could be anywhere from $5 to $20.  Before I retired I would partner up with co-workers to spend more but now I play alone.

    I am ready.

    Did you exchange a walk on part in the war ?

    For a lead role in a cage?

            Maybe its just me but I find it odd how they allow the jackpot to keep increasing so the state and government can get more money-back when they allow a certain number from a certain geographical area which the lottery commission picks.has anyone else noticed how predetermined qps look.

                      I wouldn't be surprised if a lot of tickets were sold today on account of it being St. Patrick's Day.  Didn't find any four-leaf clovers so I didn't buy.  I already bought 1 QP the day before however.  May buy 1 more tomorrow.

                         Chris Shaw from Marshall,Missouri won $258.5 million on a $5.00 Quick Pick in Power Ball last April. If Chris could do it,I think I could do it too in Mega Millions!. I'll take 5 Quick Picks please!.

                          I bought a ticket on wed, but I need to go past Safeway tonight so I'll probably grab another!

                            I'm going to write my numbers on a piece of paper then burn it , maybe it will bring me good luck.

                              Just curious, how much on average does everyone spend?   At most for me is two dollars, one my pick and the other a computer pick.

                              Each month I buy a "multiple-draw" ticket for the next 9 drawings. 

                              It is a "quick-pick" ticket, is $1 per draw, is additional $1 "megaplier" per draw (so that is a total of $2 per draw, using the same "quick pick #s generated on the 'master' ticket).

                               

                              By the way, can any of the "pros" here instruct me on how to determine of a "multiple-draw," quick-pick ticket has previously won the jackpot for either Megamillions or Powerball games?

                              Having several millions of dollars in my financial accounts means receiving several valuable services each day!
