    I'm only buying one ticket or maybe two. Nothing more. My mother has her own personal numbers that she plays while I just stick with QPs.

      I think I have a couple or three plays in courtesy of subscription service, but hoping for a win on those or a rollover so I can get back and pick winning numbers.  If it rolls, I will invest an additional $4 to win...one QP and one own pick.

      The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

            Last night surge shows PB jackpot  has to exceed the $200M barrier to get players excited with its $2 per line price.  While I probably will not play 20 lines as I use to when its price was $1 per line, I am considering playing 10 lines this Wednesday while I wait for MM jackpot to reach $50M+.

            About 33 million tickets were sold (19% of all the possible combos) so we're still not even close to a "jackpot frenzy" level. The increase from the previous drawing was 23% so it might take a few more rolls before the frenzy starts. The last time the jackpot was over $200 million on 2/11/12, about 50 million tickets were sold so while that level might excite more players, it's not exciting as many as it did just 4 months ago.

                Is that $656.1 dollars? Would make a nice payoff for a straight pick 3.   Yes Nod

                          So true! with the property tax on many of the higher end homes being well in the 6 figure range it puts a slight damper on the positives our state has to offer.

                            Stack47- Where do you get the information on the number of tickets sold for each drawing?

                            Thanks in advance!
