Not that I really care but I don't believe you for a minute.  I laugh at these types of posts.   You really come on a lottery based website to tell other players you have no intention of playing a single dollar for the fourth largest jackpot.   Makes sense.

That said I bought two tickets, my usual numbers and a quickie.

Hmmm...well I have no intention on playing a single dollar for the fifth largest jackpot either. Record-level jackpots are now so frequent that I don't bother wasting it on non-record levels. Now when it gets to the second biggest, that is when I play one dollar Wink

Everyone has their own playing style.

If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the potential payoff does.
If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

    Most people say they'll boycott and end up caving in eventually, but that's not me. Whether the jackpot be $15 million or $50 billion, this new game stinks, and I won't support it. I understand the house has to win, but the house doesn't need to win, kick us down, and spit on our faces all at the same time.

      I can imagine how many people are going to play 13 as the gold money ball.Lurking

      With the last three drawings containing a '3' in them, I'd be shocked if yet another '3' showed up. Not to mention that would also make it the 6th drawing in a row to contain an 'odd' MB #. We shall see....

            Between PB and MM concurrent wins happen a lot for some reason.  Powerball was won on Wednesday, so I predict there's a 99.9% chance mega millions will be won tonight.

              I wasn't going to...I wasn't going to be one of the herd...but 3 of my quick pick  tickets bought at two separate locations  have 13 as the money ball as well as the powerball quick pick ticket I bought at a third location.  So much for not being a cliche!

                      I cut and pasted this from another site. This was news to me. And yes, I did this...lol. Had some red Christmas card envelopes.

                      Attract Wealth and Prosperity with This Simple Feng Shui Secret

                      9 Little Coins Can Be a Money Magnet

                      One simple Feng Shui secret can attract abundant wealth right to your door and into your life. Anyone can reap the rewards by taking just a few ordinary household items and arranging them correctly in order to invite positive Feng Shui money energy into their lives and home.

                        Feng Shui is the ancient Chinese principle of aesthetics that is used to create and invite positive 'chi' or energy to your home and into your life. It is believed that by drawing from elements of heaven (astronomy) and earth (geography) we can drastically change our environment and our lives. It has become more and more popular over the years and many people even go so far as to consult with a Feng Shui advisor for help in designing, building and decorating their living spaces and office spaces.

                        Feng Shui is a very complex and exact belief so if you are really serious about reaping its benefits in your own life you should do much research in order to understand the fundamentals. Only this way can you effectively evaluate your current living space and make the suggested changes that will bring about great rewards.

                        I would like to pass along a simple Feng Shui action you can take NOW in order to invite wealth and prosperity to your home! It is simple, fast and quite effective! You have nothing to lose! It won't cost you any money but only a few moments of your time. So read on and get going NOW!

                        What you'll need:

                        9 coins, any denomination

                        a RED envelope

                        5-10 minutes of your time

                        Step 1:

                        You'll need NINE COINS for each entryway into your home. You can find these coins at the bottom of your purse, under your couch cushions and many other places. The coins can be a mixture of pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters. It really doesn't matter as long as there are NINE coins! Okay, that was easy, right? You are halfway there!

                        Step 2:

                        Place the NINE COINS in a RED ENVELOPE. The Chinese culture believes the color red to symbolize good fortune! If you do not have a red envelope, don't fret. You can simply use a red marker, paint or colored pencil to make your white envelope red. See? I told you this was going to be easy!

                        Step 3:

                        Fold the red envelope into a smaller entity around the coins and secure with tape. For this step you can use scotch tape or even packing tape. It won't matter, really, as long as your envelope stays in tact.

                        Step 4:

                        Now take your RED ENVELOPE containing NINE COINS and place it under your welcome matt outside your home's entryway! If you tend to use both your front and back entry a lot, you can place an additional RED ENVELOPE containing another NINE COINS outside of that entry too!

                        So that's it! Now you have taken the steps to invite positive fortune and prosperity into your home! GOOD LUCK!

                            Artist77,

                            One casino I worked in had a very large Hawaiin trade.

                            Christmas and New Year's they all came up to the game with red envelopes filled with money, they had all given each other gifts, mostly $100 billes they called lici (lee-see) money. Supposed to be good luck.

                            The casino got most of it but they had a good time.

                            Those who run the lotteries love it when players look for consistency in something that's designed not to have any.

                            Lep

                            There is one and only one 'proven' system, and that is to book the action. No matter the game, let the players pick their own losers.
