I got my one ticket from Big Apple store around 2:20 p.m. in the afternoon on thursday.  Hoping for the best would be happy with $40,000 or $2 million or the jackpot.  I would settle for $200 too.  Got powerplay on my ticket so good luck to me and all who play!-weshar75

    platinum has been upto 2x the price of gold, but atm is lower priced than gold. if i had a lazy $50M

    lol @ lazy 50M.   platinum may be a good speculation, if it goes back to 2x gold, you can trade over for 1.8 tons at the right time.

      905 gold kilo bars would only take up 1.84 cubic feet of space, so storage is easy. Be a terrible investment though.

        I never take the powerplay option.   That's one less dollar to buy a lottery ticket to win a big jackpot.   That's why I play, to win the top prize only.

          The way the economy might go, it may not be that bad of an idea after all. That much gold is a bit excessive though. 10% in gold and other precious metals. 5% in Liquid Funds, 75% in Stocks, 10% in Bonds. Invest in Bonds with caution, some analysists are still expecting the bond bubble to burst. The US economy might be looking a little better but we are not out of the woods yet.

            Just out of curiousity did you happen to notice that your little avatar in your signature calling people stupid was incorrect (I will let you figure out which part is wrong)?

            I mean I have to know if that was intentional because if it was not that is pretty hilarious.

            I was wondering if anybody else noticed that. That's one of my favorites. Another is spelling lose with two o's (loose).

            I'm not even going to get into there, their and they're or two, to and too cuz I'm already getting a headache, lol.

              The problem with gold currently is it is at historic sky high prices and trending downwards, that's not to say it won't shoot up tomorrow, but the trend is down and the price is very high. Were it me I'd be looking at real estate and stocks, they've been beaten up quite a bit the last few years and there are a ton of deals out there for someone with lots of cash and a long time horizon.

                      Good point on real estate and you definitely ain't kidding about the long term. Agreed that gold is wickedly priced at the moment, but it is still lower than the old high from the early 1980's if you factor in inflation. Might be a good idea to wait for it to come back down a little bit before anyone looking to buy, invests in some.

                          Well, bought three tickets with powerplay already. Might have to jump in for another one before Sat. night.

                            I would be happy to take any of the other prizes off of your hands, thank you very much.

                            Good luck on Saturday.

                              It will be two tickets that win and from states that haven't had the chance to win. It will draw up the media for them and folks around these forums will still chastise the winners if they do a press conference or mention what they plan to do with the money. We are so wonderful at telling others how to spend their money or how to invest it, that is why each week we lose because we don't want anyone to tell us how to invest/spend.

                              I think someone needs to check the CAP rules because there is one and its true that the 2nd tier will increase once it hits cap...I think its 500 mil but again it is a matter of accurately investigating it.
