Just bought 5 tickets this morning all with Megaplier.  The lady asked if I wanted the games on one ticket or separate so I went for separate.  I dunno what the liklihood of Quick Picks winning the MM jackpot are.  Oh well.  I plan to save my money just in case there's another rollover.


You never know.  ;)

I usually buy tickets in sets of 2, just don't like having more than that on one ticket as it seems it usually gives strange numbers out that just don't look like they'd be a winning set (even though the past winning numbers were 10-11-12-28-43, when most lines are like that I'm a little hesitant).

And statistically the winner will be a QP, though that's only because more QPs are sold. It really doesn't hurt or help your chance of winning.

 

Anyways, got my $5 today. Don't usually check to see if the jackpot was won until about 2 days after the drawing but something told me last night that I needed to check, so I did and instead of buying my tickets on Friday I got them during lunch today, so let's see if that is the event that I needed to trigger a win. Also made a deal with the cashier that if she finally gave me the winning numbers I'd throw something like $500,000 her way since after seeing her about 4 times a week we've kind of got a friendship and she could use it to help pay off student loans and with $126,000,000 (or a split of ~$63,000,000) I'd definitely feel generous enough to give the person responsible for me winning that kind of "reward" (and no I'm really not worried about a lawsuit, I have a lot of faith in her character... plus I'd have to win first).

Don't plan on spending much more, though I haven't checked my tickets from last drawing yet so if I won anything I will put that towards this drawing.

        I just checked the mm website.you can not purchase tickets from 9:45-10:15(ala break hours). Why is this If the drawing isnt until 10:30. Im telling u again it is all  predermined and they allready know what nunbers are going to be selected based upon what nunbers are selected. Wake-up people!!!they check during the minutes u cant by tickets.sorry not a conspiracy theory.just a conspiracy fact

        If you want to promote conspiracy theories, you should at least get your facts straight. You can buy tickets up to 15 minutes before draw time at 11:00 pm Eastern.

        If you do not trust the lottery companies, do not buy tickets.

        Good luck.

            It's up to $312 million now. It sure passed the $305 million mark pretty quickly.

                      I expect it to go even higher tomorrow.

                       

                      Just bought 5 more tickets btw.  A total of 10 for this game.

                        If you take the 26 annual payments it comes out to $1 million a month. Spend it wisely. (I would be happy with $1 million a year.)
