Thank you as I had a brain fart. Princeton or Harvard in my opinion are similar snob institutions.

Hmm, Hmm...that's right!

      If you weren't In It: You didn't Win It!

      Congrats to the Winner! Thumbs Up

      Well, I wasn't in it, so I didn't win anything...  Green laugh

          I wish I could say I spent only $4 a week.    : (

          Heck, I wish I could claim that I spent only $4 a day on both major lottos   : ((

          That's waiting in line to be screwed.

           

          I wish my county would reward me at the end of the year, for having spent so much on unsuccessful lottos.
          Like maybe a few bags of groceries.  Yes, it's my own doggone fault when I go overboard and spend more than I have.
          I have only recent begun to save all old tickets, after having discarded many.

          • Don't chase the numbers you play.
          • Play only numbers you've already played, plus however many random picks.
          • But, ALWAYS the regular numbers you play.  This will make you a winner, not a chaser.
                    (so far, though, I've yet to win any significant lotto prize)

            Next stop July if nobody hits it before then.

            I didn't have any tickets for the draw so I won for not losing!

            Since the matrix change I tried my luck on 3 tickets on 3 different draws and got zippo.

            PB pretty much made the statement that they are a Jackpot only game on their last matrix change.

            I don't know when I will buy tickets but at least I know it will have to get over $430 mil.  I'm considering jumping in at $600 mil or $750 mil next time. Yawn

            Until that happens I will be playing other games.

                    I couldn't agree with u more. You'll be surprised how many snobs' kids get into ivy league schools because their mommy and daddy work there or went there, like Obama's daughter.

                      One of my tickets had one number plus the powerball to win $4

                      You win $4 for just getting the powerball number. I think you should win more if you get one plus the powerball number.

                      They need to revamp the payout for the lower tier prizes.

                      Congrats to the winning ticket holder(s) Banana

                      SmileYes I agree! I have hit 1+1 lots of times with MM and PB. Thats a nothing win. You can`t buy a bag of chips and a Pepsi with that! Atleast make it $10.00 where you can actually buy something with it.

                      You can do anything if you put your mind into it. The sky is the limit! Cool

                        Like I said last night I won $8 but spent $15 to get last night.  Usually I lose though so today I spent $2 towards the mega millions jackpot for tuesday night.  I think that jackpot is fly under the radar because everyone will want to see the $429.6 million winner.  So me with a $150 million and oregon first jackpot for mega millions will be no news at all.-weshar75

                          Well I guess I'll try my luck with MegaMillions this week. I was honestly feeling kinda lucky on this Powerball run.

                            Granted, 1+1 is a nothing win, sort of. But, it's old news. The reason 1+1 is nothing is so the jackpots can grow bigger faster. And despite some saying the jackpots are too big, nobody needs that much money, yada,yada,yada, the fact is, big jackpots sell more tickets. Which is why they made the changes.

                            Personally, I obviously want to win the whole enchilada, but the fact of the matter for me, anyway, is that 2nd prize with the megapiler/powerplay is instant retirement. I don't even need to win the whole enchilada. And while the odds of hitting 2nd prize is still high, they're not as bad as Texas Lotto which is almost 1 in 26 million. So....I'm in every draw. 

                            To each his own.

                              Normally it's nice to know a single ticket won. 

                              normally being the operative word.

                              When uncles Sam and nj clear out half thru taxing.. It just deflates the joy in this for the winner. 

                              Its a matter of facts... Would you really be overjoyed writing Uncle Sam 75 million? Not me...

                              Anyhoos the person can live well .. So blessings to them...
