There are many who are going to put down hundreds of dollars and win nothing.  The new odds are worse than the old one. A dollar or 5 is good enough.

I Agree! I rarely spend more then a couple bucks

        People can put as much as they want down. I say the more the better, because you know that if I won it or you or whoever,  they are going to be oh so happy and have no problem with the amount of $ that's now theirs.

          I know that I am not going to be a winner, I will not buy 20 tickets but I will take my chances to buy 1 or 2 tickets only

          Rest depends upon statistics and my LUCK!!!!

            This one will be over $3,OOO,OOO,OOO before it is won.

            Fatigue will set in and sales will collapse.

            I Agree! to a certain extent. Sales may lessen if the JP rolls to $3B, but more likely due to less money being available to spend as much as they have been spending on tickets. All those holiday bonuses would have dried up, credit card cash advances overextended, disposable income disposed. 

            And frankly, God help the person who shows up to collect that check if he/she doesn't have sense or cunning. When thrust in front of the media spotlight, they will never again know a moment's peace. I can well imagine all the parasites who will sue or threaten physical harm to get a share of it. If it's yet another braggard or drug addict, $3 billion or not, they'll still end up bankrupt and/or dead within 5 years.

              So if you won you would feel bad or upset for the people who put down $20, $50, $100+ on the next draw?....lol

                      That looks like a good hideaway. And it's always good to have a plan. Smile

                          The same here>>>I usually only do $1 terminal Quik pik.

                          Butt I have a deck of cards 1-75 & drew 8 for a $5 Wheel with a Gaurantee:

                          If 5 Numbers played correct 1 ticket will match 4 numbers

                          This is the best I can do without pumping in the cash

                            It sold for $990,000 in 2012, I would offer $1,050,000.

                            Owned by a local executive who is most likely moving up somewhere else.

                            The property taxes are reasonable around here.

                            I do research!

                              Not so fast..... If the JP ever gets to $3Billy, some usually clear thinking people, might be tempted to refinance, take out 2nd mortgages or whatever just to be in it. Others who are not so well-off, might eat Mac and cheese or do the dollar menu thing for a month, just to be in it. That's why they call it gambling. You sacrifice what you can afford. If you go nuts about it and lose, or you choose not to play, and your number hits, you have nobody but yourself to blame. With a JP that high, people will do whatever they can, including stealing, just to be in it. I'd rather have it capped at $1Billy until somebody wins it, and the next JP starts at $1Billy. But you can never trust these lottery people, so screw the capping, and keep it rolling until some lucky person wins it.
