    This should jump start the lottery fever again, for which there is no cure.  Banana   (Except Winning).  Wink

    Nah, even if I won, I'd probably still play. Although more scratch-offs than quick picks. I like instant gratification.  :-)

      You can always play on the day of the drawing.

        Looks like a few birthday/anniversary number players won 2nd and 3rd tier prizes...rolling over at least one more time so I can buy my quick pick for $300 million plus jackpot. Bring it on, come on!

        I thought that birthdays players never win the lottery.Who knows when it comes to random.

          I think that many players lost big time on last night drawing. I mean take a look at the amount of replies on this thread.

            I never saw so many 1 million dollar winners... simply amazing!  My state is in here, Ohio

            I consider that a bonus for the years of losing money.

                I bet there's 21 people wishin' they'da spent the extra buck.

                Are you kidding me? Players were complaining about the $2 ticket cost, and you think that they will spend $3 for a single line. It is insane to do that man.

                  It does not matter when you buy the stupid tickets to win.

                    I could live very well on $170.5 million dollars before taxes. (cash option)

                    I have heard that phrase so many times on lottery post. Good luck.

                      so 5 min before store closes is a good plan then?

                      you should try it, maybe this coming PB draw

                          The gas station where I buy my PB ticket is opened 24 hours everyday but they stop selling PB ticket for that night's drawing an hour before the drawing.  Any PB tickets bought after that will be for the next drawing.

                           * you don't need to buy every combination, just the winning ones *

                              Yeah ok I mean time your entry to the store / gas station 5 min before close off time for the nights draw, with a self picked coupon you filled out.

                              If that ain't $2's worth of excitement or disappointment i don't know what is.
