For the better and worse of it, I'm a devoted PB/wPP player... averaging $15 (5 lines) per game, $30 per week.

(.. the coat of many sponsors doesn't sound so nutty when it's down this low, now, does it? milking it out more than kiss, the kardashians and hello kitty combined... along with looking back on a few (so far failed or neglected) election promises of local representatives, making a public reference to it while throwing a donation to groups that represent that failed promise (countrymen lend me your ears... ) while building one's own brand name... diverting attention and building (personal social/corporate) interest. Whatever the payout... it's never quite enough. I might be with Patti Smith and William Elliot Whitmore about free money..  but I'd want to build my own interests (fortune) too... although still not necessarily by spending, investing or getting loans on just my dime either. 

 

and if only that I live in a small town (edge of civilization and the rural boonies), suffering enough employment loss and real estate woes that even a small investment/donation or diverting state/national interest (for supporting the troops, the tribes/band, the religious or addressing the state's chief export -- it's children, elderly, and other disenfranchised social minorities.) it's way would be enough to justify spending that much for even the second tier prize.

 

That and it keeps things simple for the flat mates when I'm the only one playing it, and likewise they're dedicated to their own games. Still having a convoluted and delusional plan also balances out the scheme for the great unlikely of winning much of anything. A bit more space to dream, an excuse to join the site and fap away about various dreams... or schemes. So yeah, a three dollar shot for PB all the way.)

Uh?

      That high is over. I didn't get a single number.  PB should go back to one dollar because of all that crap about more winners in more states is just that, crap. How many times has Michigan one this thing?

      I spent $10 and won $7 for a $3 loss. I have no regrets, you spend $2 and your loss will be $2, if you do not win. The lottery never said that we can't win a jackpot with a single line. Losing $2 on a single line is easier on the heart. Minimize your risk in the shorterm because the lottery always win.

      I have become risk adverse when it comes to playing the lottery.

                  I feel your pain.
                  Dejected, I gathered all the unchecked tickets lying in my receipt drawer, and went to check them, in hopes that maybe I had something that I forgot to claim.

                  I claimed a $2 prize, then promptly bought a scratch ticket and won $3.
                  feeling lucky, I got 3 mega millions tickets.

                  Fingers crossed for tomorrow's  drawing.

                      Hopefully some of that luck travels east a hundred miles on the wind, in time for the megamillions drawing.

                        Hmmmm........now your making me re-think my "dangerous plans" for blowing my winnings.   Roll Eyes

                        I heard Gulf-Stream is running a "Special" this month. Buy two "Luxury Edition" G650''s at full price, and get the third for free!   Idea

                         

                         

                        I would get one of those shipping containers with windows if they upgrade the paint to red pearl.
