          The drawing is on Saturday night.  You have time.  Go get numbers you're happy with. Banana

                Will be going WAY OVER BUDGET this weekend with Lotto tickets. Powerball at 475 mil and rising, Mega at 190, Ohio Lotto at 35.6, Ohio 5-number Rolling Cash at .565, Michigan 47 (live ten min. from state line) at 5.2 mil.

                Screw the house payment, I've got priorities...

                    Those who won Million Dollars , Why didn't they  "spend extra dollar and play

                    "powerplay " and win $2 million dollars ???

                   

                     

                     

                  Uhhh..Maybe cause the odds of winning are astronomical?  When u go to the casino and play blackjack and win $20 in a hand, why not bet $250?  U knew u were gonna win right? (Sarcasm if u cant tell)

                    Even though 28 tickets won the 2nd tier prize I am willing to bet that millions were spent on "powerplay" and didn't win ANYTHING.

                    Because of the ridiculous odds, I rarely play and when I do it's never with the Powerplay or Megaplier option.

                      Nice Post. Green laugh (it was a dumb question)

                      PP is cool for those playing a line. (or possibly 2)

                      I like to play at least 5.

                        You don't have to like your numbers. At least you have your ticket and have as good a chance as anybody else to win. It simply takes a miracle and you just never know. Smile

                          let it raise to a billion. that would be awesome .. record breaking number of players would get a chunk of atleast a million .

                            I Agree! and now everyone buying a ticket can look at something really expensive and think, I could buy it (or several of them) if I get really really lucky!

                              PP can double the second prize from $1M to $2M. Also it is much easier to hit the second prize than to hit the JP as proven by the 28 people who hit it last nite. I play it when I buy my 2 lines.

                              It's far, far easier to lose, as proven by the many millions of players who got zip. When you spend that extra dollar there's about a 97% chance that you're just wasting it.
