$2 per line x 500 tickets = $1000     He/she did not get powerplay so the math is right.

is it only in NY this month we are getting free extra ticker per 5?

    Go with the brand new gulfstream jet. You only live once. Then you can be fly like a G6.

    That's actually the Gulf-Stream G650 not the G6, and you can own one for as little as $58 million.

    (Not including pilot, co-pilot, fuel, insurance, hanger and storage fees, maintenance and upkeep, which can all run another $1-2 million annually).

                Best of luck to you hotslot. Welcome to LP!

                 

                There have been many members on this site who have "invested" similar amounts and more, when jackpots started climbing into the stratosphere.

                I'm certainly not going to discourage you from making that wager, I admire your willingness to put that much on the line.

                To my knowledge however, I don't remember any of those members getting much of anything for hits, it was pretty much a big goose egg.

                As long as your able to lose it all, without any financial repercussions, you should be just fine.    Cheers

                 

                It's just the morning after making such a bet, that can be bittersweet if nothing becomes of it.   Let It All Out

                Thanks mcginnin! 

                Yes, to all of you who question I really did buy $1,000 worth of tickets. 500 lines worth at $2 a pop. It's a gamble but nothing ventured nothing gained as they say. Yes, I take it for what it is, a gamble. Some people go to vegas for the weekend and blow thousands. In fact, $1,000 really isn't that much. Like I said, I don't normally play this amount on tickets but the jackpot also hasn't been this high in about 6 months or so. It's worth a shot! You never know, Wednesday just might be my lucky day.  If I don't hit it maybe it will roll again and there's always next time. 

                Thanks again for the welcome mcginnin. You too rdgrnr!

                  Other than my age, if someone is looking to hack into one of my accounts....more power to them. Life is to short to be worrying 24/7.   Yes Nod

                    so if someone said they owned an AK and didn't specify they owned an AK-47 they are wrong? I knew about the Gulfstream G650, I just didn't want to type the whole thing out and I was also trying to make a reference to a song, "Fly like a G6" by Far East Movement.

                        I'm glad I'm not that crazy yet. On the other hand, if you can spend $1000 on tickets, why would you want a jackpot win?

                        On the other hand, somehow I doubt in the trustworthiness of this post. As if it was true, you'd know that for $1000 you'd get 600 lines in august.

                         

                        Another thought, are you a lottery agent, who wants to instigate enormous sales by showing what to spend to the bunch of lottery addicts?

                        Nope, not crazy. Just REALLY want to win! Just because I can spend $1,000 doesn't mean I don't want or need a jackpot win. More money is always good, especially for big boy (and girl) toys, my friend.

                        Unless my eyes and mind are playing tricks on me then the 500 lines of tickets I bought today are very real. There was no promotion in my area for 600 lines at $1,000  The clerk at the store I bought them from even kissed the pile of tickets before handing them to me and wished me good luck. I will need it. LOL You never know!

                          Never said you were wrong whiteballz. But when referring to a sophisticated aircraft that just came out, calling it a G6 is misleading to anyone

                          in the Aviation field. I'm sure you know everything there is about this aircraft, including climb rates, top air-speeds, range, cargo capacity, etc, so

                          I apologize if you were offended in any way. Disapprove

                            well, ok. Good luck to you then. Maybe you are right about Vegas too. 

                             

                            You've inspired me, I think I'm gonna go and spend $400 on tickets now.

                              $2 per line x 500 tickets = $1000     He/she did not get powerplay so the math is right.

                              Yes, no powerplay on my 500 tickets. I'm only interested in the jackpot prize. If I cared about the 2nd million dollar prize there are other games I could have played with better odds for less money. Though If I miss the jackpot prize by one number I will gladly take the million!! 

                              I'm thinking a new SLR mercedes would look nice parked outside my home to make the neighbors drool. LOL
