                I know this powerball is all the talk right now...but there are some other decent jackpots out there right now in some of the bigger state lotteries. With better odds to boot.

                The most I've ever won is $20,000 on a scratcher a few years back. Not life changing but still exciting just to win it.

                  It's considered one of Hooters "mini"-grasshoppers. The larger ones are kept in a corral in the rear of the building.  Thumbs Up

                      Thanks. I ended up with less than $20,000 after they took out taxes though.

                        I never play more than one line, and don't even do PowerPlay. I think when I go buy a ticket tomorrow I'm going to buy a few more lines...not sure how many, though. Being a broke college student makes it painful to dish away money on such a thing, but the dreams/fantasies more than make up for it. Man do I wish I had $1,000 to gamble!

                          That's the spirit. Don't play more than you can afford to lose. Keep your powder dry. If it rolls again it will be something like $200 million after taxes for Saturday's draw.  You would literally have to try HARD to ever go broke with that much money. I'm talking about making the redneck hillbilly david edwards look like a conservative spender. LOL

                            Not sure about other states, but here in NY the next thing after PowerBall and MM, is Lotto, which is 8 Millions, where the odds are not so much better. While here in PB the second prize is at more favorable odds, then any decent local lottery. 

                             

                            This switch for 2 dollars a play, I'm thinking, very soon will make jackpots like this a usual thing. Unless Mega Millions will change to 2 dollars some time soon, once their sales will not be as high as in PB to even it out.

                             

                            After all, PB does make more people millioners now with their second prizes. Even though, technically, after taxes it is not really a million, but still it fells like it.

                              Haha, believe me, I know. I'm only 21, trying to check out of life early! My father has taught me to be responsible with money, and with that, I always have been. I'd never blow those winnings.
