Yeah but I tried adding the extra $1 for mega and powerball awhile ago for probably close to a month and I never won anything off it. So I figure throwin some $ down for more picks makes better sense

      That's because a huge surge of extra people are playing, not to mention most regular lottery players are doubling and even tripling their

      regular bets because of the swelling jackpot.

       

      The odds of getting a second place prize are virtually about the same as when the jackpot is only at $40 million.

      Although most who toss in the extra dollar, will do so no matter what the size of the jackpot.

      yeah it's not about the size

                        I could play in ohio too but I don't want the hassle off claiming a win (jackpot) in one state and living in another. Heck, Toledo would prob try and claim some off the winnings because I bought it there too.

                          I live in VA but buy usually buy my tickets in DC (even though they take more taxes).  DC allows you to claim via a trust. VA does not.
