      Good luck but groups don't win very often. Very seldom. Single players win the overwhelming amount of jackpots.

      It can happen (a group win) but it's very rare. You'd be much more likely to win playing by yourself, you should try it.

      Good luck!

      rdgrnr,

       

      It's not more or less likely, I'd guess less groups win because way more tickets are sold to individuals than groups.

       

      As for me - I'd never really want to play in a group because of the fact that if I win, I win less (which isn't a big deal since it'd be a lot) and the possibility of a lawsuit in the case that somebody feels that they "deserve a share."

        No one needs that much money. I'll take the win and then have fun giving most of it away.

        Good luck everyone.

              I would like to see it roll a few more times but with the cash option being 73% of the annuity its a good amount right now. Based on a year ago I believe the cash option now would represent the jackpot advertised in the mid 240's

                How many tickets is everyone buying for the big draw tonight? I'm thinking a 'lucky' seven. Also curious how many folks get the megaplier. Good luck all!

                  I always get my regular numbers, plus an easy pick; if the pot swells to over 100 million, I get an additional easy pick. I'm not convinced that buying hundreds of extra tickets guarantees you that much better a shot. So tonight I'll spend 3 dollars, with no megaplier. Have tried megaplier, power play for Powerball, and the the "sizzler" for Hot lotto. Maybe one out of twenty plays I'll get a small return of 10-20 dollars, but hey you never know.

                  In August of "07" I played my regular numbers for Powerball + an easy pick ($2.00 investment), and I was pleasantly surprised two day's after the Saturday drawing, that I had all five white ball numbers (2- 23- 24- 27- 36), PB 31 ON MY EASY PICK! I scored $200kHyper, had I the correct PB (3), I would have hit the jackpot for $115 Million.  No Pity!

                  Needless to say I believe in a mixed portfolio of personally picked/easy pick combinations.

                   

                  Good luck 2-nite everyone!!!$$$ Cheers

                      mcginnin56, $200,000 is quite a hit! Been reading Lotterypost a long time (just decided to join) and never heard of any member nailing one that high. If you're that lucky once, I'd say you have a great shot at being lucky twice...

                        Lightening can strike twice Arrowhead, but as the old saying goes you've got to play if you want the pay. I may never hit big again, but the prospect that waiting just one more day and everything can change your life forever is well worth the risk!!! Best of luck Arrowhead  Thumbs Up

                          I do.

                           I'd like to buy several office and commercial buildings. So I guess I really need that $100mil.

                           BTW, I am playing with my dream numbers. Wish me luck.

                              Always said, the higher that jackpot the more I could help family, friends, charities. In Ohio, you clear $104.8 mil after taxes. I'd keep about 45-50% of that, give the rest away.
