      well FW....$2-10 a week(might be a reasonable figure) X 52 weeks X 20 years....I would take that return on my investment for 20 years  Thumbs Up

      I Agree!, CDanaT!  So, figure Roger spent $8/week on self-picked and machine-picked tickets in Powerball game ONLY; he'd have spent, less small quarterly wins, approximately $8,100 after 20 years time.  Thus, this after income taxed apx. $499K Net lottery jackpot win is a wonderful, 20-year return! Congratulations Roger!

      Regardless, Roger probably now realizes that he was foolish not to have played buying the additional multiplier EACH ticket, once that option became available in recent years, though!  He could have been done with stressful gambling every 3.5 days if he had, a shame.

      Having several millions of dollars in my financial accounts means receiving several valuable services each day!

           4 number are either birthdates or ages , which I need to start playing ,

           Like today in mega , I won $10.00 because it had one age and one birthdate .

           I noticed this several times with mega and powerball numbers ...

          Again .....it's been playing ..........birthdates / Ages .

            My Mass Cash game numbers have not come all these years and yet the odds for matching the top prize are a mere 1:324,632 so Mr Winburn is incredibly lucky on top of being very patient. Congratulations. Shine on some of that luck to the rest of us.

            That money's gone fo ever

                    Plenty of people go this route of playing the same numbers for years and years and never win. That is why I think patience + LUCK = jackpot. Luck is a big part of it.
