    I'll buy my regular set of numbers along with one quick-pick = $3 no more, no less.  Jackpot frenzy strikes every year around this time with people spending hundreds of dollars trying to hit the big one - only to find out the winner never played before and only spent one or two bucks on quick picks. LOL  Actually I'll probably spend more money on 203 - I like that number for New Jersey midday.Thumbs Up

    Good luck everyone.Lep 

    Haha that is so true.  It's usually the people who never play that decide to play once that win.  Also 203, ouch, lol.

    I have $3 left aside as well.

      If I am lucky enough to win I am going to give my money to my family.  Like my mother is getting $10 million and my sister and her husband are getting $5 million each.  Then every month I would donate to the food bank.  I would give back to my old high school too.  Yuo got to share the wealth around with that much money.  I would still live very comfortable with the rest of the money after I donated some of it away in various places and to various people.-weshar75

        Sounds like you got the idea if I won a lottery jackpot I would give it all away to others. 

        You misread my statement, I didn't say I would help others, I said I would help the local economy by spending my winnings instead of storing it away for the future as you implied most retired people do. 

        At my age my future is now and there are lots of things and services I would buy before I died if I had the money.   Building a new homes, buying a new car or two every year, hiring people and services  to maintain my home and me would help the local economy.  Providing jobs for people instead of charity is the way I would do it.

        That is how we will get this county back on track! Buy locally made products as much as you can.

            Excellent comment RJOh! I like your idea, but I'd still include charity where needed. There are so many animals in need, being dropped off at rescues that the rescues are all filling up. They could use a little bit of help. Some assistance to our poor rural areas would be called for also, buying materials and using local labor to repair and rebuild homes and churches, or supply schools. There's so much that can be done to give back that is not necessarily charity. Teach one to fish or farm, and they can feed themselves.

            Good luck everyone!

                  I predict that it wont hit til next year when we have to pay more to win less. ANd then it will be a group of 20 wall street fell'rs who just happened to be out walking one afternoon and drummed up a whoppin whole dol'r to play. The PB will be #28 when it wins.

                  On the outragously notgonnahappeninmylife chance that I win, I too will gracious thank the contributors and then kick Uncle Sam in the shin ...tired of relatives taken what aint theres'. Razz

                      When I win, I would also like to give back to my family....but need to be careful of the tax repercussions associated with that.  Need to hire a tax lawyer to figure out the best way to do this!
