Lol CLETU$, Mine has been the none part for an awful long time!!! Hoping to change that tonight! Dream last night I was given 27,202 dollars. I guess that don't mean much anyways. Luck plays a big part of winning anything! Good Luck to you! if that means anything to ya!!

I picked my own numbers for years and won very little money.Now I let the computer pick my numbers and guess what...I still win a very little money.

      In Los Angeles County, there's a place called Bluebird Liquor that always gets huge lines of people when jackpots get big.  People wait sometimes hours to get their tickets because they believe this place is lucky.  They have had at least 4 or more multi-million dollar jackpot winners. Banana

      Yep, been there....they have several terminals, if you are only buying lottery the line is crazy, but if you purchase items AND lottery, much shorter wait, LOL.

        It's some what simpler for me since I pick my own numbers, I only have to pick the winning numbers regardless of where I buy them.

        That 7 time lottery winner was featured on the news today. He discouraged purchasing of QPs (even though majority of jackpot winners did so by buying QPs). Stick with same numbers all the time.

        And of course, they ask people what they would do with the money if they won (that is getting so old given that we have had multiple high jackpots in the last 12 months).

        I am just going to play some numbers I like along with some QPs and call it a day.  If I win, yippee!  If I don't, there is always the next drawing for either a higher jackpot or $40 million, which is fine by me.  In whatever state I am, I am content.

         

        If I win, I will revisit Kenya sooner rather than later to help with the rebuild of the international airport terminal (trust me, I will do my part!). Surprising that Obama is not concerned about that occurrence given that it his father's beloved home country.  Tourism is going to take a hit for awhile and so are certain other businesses.

        Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

        The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

          Whittaker brought a hundred tickets, that alone made him different than most other players.

          True RJOH- but only ONE ticket out of that bunch was the winner,  although I seriously doubt that you suggesting we all buy100 tickets to see if your experiment works.  All it takes is one ticket. Remember that lady called Gloria. ..One ticket RJOH.

            Luck or no luck, you have to be in it, to stand any chance of winning it. I just bought 15 lines with powerplay, for $45.00 from one of those stores that sell jackpot winners.

                    Hey Rjoh! How is it going for you since you pick your own numbers? Have you won some? So quick picks, you don't have any use for? I try to play a combination of both! But not won anything on PB in a very, very long time! I really mean a long time! Not even the powerball number. So I'm just about to give up on playing now. But when the pot gets this high, I have to try again, but only 6 bucks is all I can afford now though. Good Luck to ya!!

                    Since I play my predictions, I've done as well as my predictions.  No decent PB or MM wins yet but a 5of6 win for Ohio's Classic Lotto.

                      Buying a hundred tickets has nothing to do with me, I have never spent over $20 on any game for a single drawing unless I was buying tickets for a lottery pool.  I was just pointing out what Whittaker did beyond what players normally do.

                        I bought my tickets at a store in a rough neighborhood when I left work yesterday. Then today the guys at work asked me to join their pool and since I do not want to be the guy that is left working while the rest are vacationing in Maui, Bali or Jamaica, I quickly joined them. Those tickets were bought at a gas station. I'll get one last one at a liquor store like Pedro Quezada and Patricia Chandler have done and won in 2013. Good luck all.

                        That money's gone fo ever

                          @ Maringoman,

                          I would have done the same, worth a few bucks to not be left out.

                            There is a store out in Middle Village that had a real big Jackpot winner too!  They have those signs "We had a Winner!"

                            I always go there.

                            They have the best Doritos!Wink

                              There's a 7-11 considered a lucky store where I used to live (Northfield NJ)

                              I'll be going there tomorrow, so If It rolls tonight, I will stop there for an xtra ticket.

                              I would'nt make a trip for that, but since I'll be there anyway I'll get a QP for sat.

                              Roll, Roll, Roll !
