i don't bet it be 34 pages gocart1

here why

i bet their going to up amount jackpot amount before monday ends, as sells will be to high"all record jackpots get bumped during last mins"   ,and top  lottery people wil have a short meeting monday, look at data form sat/sunday, guest monday,tues sells based off last 2 days,

,and give the ok to market the new Amount

 

so their be a new story on here how it got upped. and we commit on that  one more. that's my thinking anyway with bets

history repeats,  go look at 2011 run of the 240m cash jackpot,  it got upped many times over,and where higher then that in cash"real sales"

and we had many stories on it,i like being on lottery post when jackpot this high

everyone gets worked up in excitement over it.

Hey Joshuacloak!! YOUR RIGHT!! lol they raised the jackpot, how exciting!!!

Let's get them L.P.!!!!!!!!!!!

      BuyLow,

      "Your odds do not change drastically whether you buy 1, 100 or 1000 tickets.  Buy a few from different places this will likely get you more results."

      Buuying in several different locations improves your chances of meeting the Lottery Fairy.

      Lottery Fairy huh? Thank you. That's beyond helpful.

            What's up with folks bringing up politics on a website about the LOTTERY? There are many political websites waiting for their opinions.

                Listen here Mr bubble burster!!! we all know what the odds r.. and im sure most of us believe n positive thinking... its just Lil pep talks like before a ball game... a really difficult ball game.. lol.. i don't think "bragging" about is gonna determine whether or not we win ;-)

                Not trying to burst bubbles just stating the facts based on what I have seen here for many years. As soon "I win" I will post that I won just to prive that an LP member can actually win a huge jackpot. Lol. Party

                  What? No one is playing the Powerball?  Eek  Than these Powerball tickets I purchased must be imaginary?  Blush   Can I trade them in for MM tic's?

                  I was going by the mediocre rise of the jackpots since the MM has gotten so high. Apparently you are the ONLY one who played it then. LOL I think the majority of the ppoulation find that spending $1.00 for a chance at $360 million is a lot better deal.

                    I have five tickets.   Three were quick picks on different tickets from three different places that I happened to stop at.   The fourth is my standard numbers I've always played in Mega Millions and the Powerball although I had to change them for Powerball as the number thirty seven no longer exists.   The last ticket was picked by closing my eyes while filling out a sheet and hitting five numbers with the pencil.   I used my favorite baseball player for the Mega Ball. 

                    I think I have all angles covered and by this time next week I'll be living off the interest of $175,000,000 banked.  Not bad work if you can get it.

                        I only have 18 pages in this thread. I'd guess it depends on your screen resolution how many posts per page there are. Todd would probably know for sure.

                          OK, so ppl. should predict # of posts instead of pages ?

                            Yes, I have noticed a few times my page count was different than others reporting here.

                              I think it's time. Im going for my first an last $100.00 buy of tickets. I bought 1000 powerball tickets on my birthday and didnt even win the 100 dollar prize so this is definitely my last shot at big spending on powerball or mega millions EVER! Good luck guys

                              YoungNRich,

                               Jusr curious? if last Tuesday was your "first an last $100.00" of tickets, how did you win 250k on Friday's drawing? it sounded like you were done forever playing the PB or MM.
