Mario38,

Interesting. You make that comment to rdgrnr and not thePharoah. More interesting about not violating any laws if you indeed have asked peole to send money across national bordewrs to Canada for lotto.

RJOh,

"$2000 on a power ball drawing might not be as bad as you project.  If the powerballs are evenly distributed among 2000 picks then the winning one will hit 51 times guaranteeing $153 back.  The over odds are he will win at least 56 lower tier prizes for $219."

Gee, I never figured you for an Enron accountant. Let's see, $219 and a whole bunch of I hope so's after a $2000 buy-in? Naw.

Scared

Yes, thePharoah did use an inappropriate term and I do not defend it but at least it was not directed towards another member as a personal attack. The rule I quoted is in reference to personal attacks.

    I'm young with not too many respondsibilities at the moment and ppl waste way more money on other things like beats by dr dre head phones iphone 4's ect so since being i don't make a boat load of purchases like that, I like I'll CHANCE $2000.00 bucks (yes 2000.00) on a CHANCE of A LIFE TIME CHANGING ANNUITY bc at 23 in 15 payments in the state of Louisiana and at age 38 I would've have cleared 70 million dollars after taxes!!! talk about LIFE CHANGING?! Beats by Dr Dre Headphones 299.99 Iphone 4 499.99 Mac Book Pro 1499.99. Winning the Powerball @200Million @23 PRICELESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Cool

    2 grand on powerball tickets? Let us know how this turns out if you decide to do it.

    The most I ever spent on the lotto was $140 on the Oregon MegaBucks. The odds of winning the top prize is about 1 out of 12 million, if you only buy one ticket. You get 2 plays for a dollar, so I had 280 tickets. I ended up not breaking even. I think this goes to show you, the most important thing you need to win is LUCK.

        if you got 2k to spend blow this year

        i highly remd you just buy 39 tickets at a time, 1 ticket with each diff powerball.  and do it over the year for all high jackpots

        see it as buying 39 tickets, when it only cost you 36 bucks!  , as you Have to have at lest a 3 buck winner if you play ever single <snip> powerball number!

        am just saying, if your going to spend a lot, it makes sense do it around mega balls or powerballs for pb, as its best bang for your buck. odd wise

        i highly hold back on spending 2k, and spread it around to all high jackpots coming this year.  but up to you, gl whatever you spend

        as for my self, i play on getting about 3 tickets lol, if it rolls into 300m range i up it to 5 to 10 bucks maybe. if it ever turns into  a powerball record, easy 36 tickets with every powerball and 1 qp for cheery on top hell of it,

         

        thro poor powerball cant break any real records

        if it keeps rolling that is, no chance in hell  can't ever beat 240m cash jackpot Mega millions holds form this year

        , PB jackpot cap would kick in and doom it right as it gets near  breaking world records, thro i hope one of you wins or i do, and if not, It better freaking roll LOL

                Well, we went and got our tickets for the big PBall drawing..Can't wait! Played the usual 3 sets of numbers and some quick picks w/ & w/out powerplay...

                By golly, I believe we have the waterfront covered...A little bit of this & a little bit of that...

                  And obnoxious people from stone-age cultures are never quite clear on the concept.

                  The concept of letting people believe what they want to believe.

                  They think they have a right to tell everybody what to believe.

                  And if they can't beat you with sticks in the streets, they'll persecute you and ridicule you online until you believe what they tell you to believe or just shut up about your beliefs.

                  He won't tolerate any mention of God or especially Jesus on this site and if you disagree with anything he says, you're a racist.

                  How dare anybody on this site not believe what he believes?

                  You will submit to our little ayatollah.

                    I never claimed to be an accountant, just a lottery player with a realistic expectation of what can be won with $2000 worth of PB tickets.
