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!

You might try hitting up hotslot, I hear he has deep pockets!

    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.

    Smart man at such a young age! I hope you win someday, even if your ship doesn't come in on Wednesday, it could be just around the corner!

        Sometimes you will read about a winner who doesn't normally play who won the jackpot. However, most stories I read of winners are people who have played at least 5 years or more. Hang in there and keep playing. Somebody has to win, might as well be one of us, right?

          So, will anyone of you come here again and tell us that he/she won the jackpot, if that happens?

              IT'S OKAY TO PLAY THE LOTTERY TO WIN A JACKPOT SOMEDAY.

              ALL YOU NEED IS A LOTTERY TICKET AND A DREAM.

              BUY 1 LOTTERY TICKET SOMEDAY. GOOD LUCK.

              Mr. Ridge. It could be one $2 ticket, one $10 ticket or one $20 ticket when it comes to playing powerball. Man those singular words tend to confuse us sometime.

              You know a $2 ticket, a $10 ticket, a $20 ticket etc. Good luck.

                  I honestly don't think that I would remember to post back here.

                      if someone here posted they won the jackpot. Would you believe them? What if the winner refused to go have a press conference or have their name released? I mean, if I said a week from now, "Hi guys! I won the jackpot!" I could only imagine the reactions I'd get.

                         I ran a Powerball simulator this morning. It took me 78 simulated years (a few minutes in real life) and I lost almost $8000 in net value. And I hit no more than three numbers a few dozen times and that was the highest hits I could get, in 78 simulated years.

                          $8000 in 78 years? Is this with the price of the tickets staying $2 the entire time?

                            how did that work? Was it 1 line for each draw and then randomly produced 6 numbers matched to the next 6 randomly produced numbers?

                            In order to get accurate result you need to use two completelly different random generators. And probably not 1 line, but at least couple of them, after all odds are 175mil.

                            With the same rate succes you can match real drawings from previous to the next. 

                            And btw, 78years*52weeks*2draws*$2 = $16224 of total budget spend, and with that loosing only 8 grand for fun over the course of life is not that bad. Didn't you know that we are all playing this game just for fun?

                              Yea, you are right. Most likely nobody would believe, i dind't think about that part.
