if you won a big jackpot like powerball or mega millions would you still play the lottery afterwards?

       Most definitely...Why ?... The only way to stay ahead is to keep winning. It's "all about the money". How long do you think that that money is going to last if your not working  and partying and spending and lending and donating and having a "good time"?

          it depends on how big the jackpot, and if it were big enough to get me my own reality show.

          I've redone my website.  Go to www.dr-ew.com.  I kept a lot of the old stuff, and I've added some new stuff.  Look for more new stuff in the coming weeks.

            Yes i would play once in a while.  It is usually the ones who play once in a while that hits big.

              I take it you mean a MM or high state lottery JP... so, yes, but only selectively.

                I would play either MM or PB depending upon the jackpot even after winning. Who says lightning cant strike you twice??



                Ofcourse I wouldnt need the money so I would give away most of it.

                    I would never put another dime into it. As a matter of fact, depending on the amount that I won, I might just start my own anti-lottery campaign.

                      I think people who have won have played again since

                      I've heard of people winning the jackpot twice...and isn't that just not fair?

                      I think there should be a rule that if you win a jackpot over a certain amount you cannot win (A major Jackpot) again! 

                      Well maybe too extreme, but it's pretty crazy...

                          i fi won a jackpot, i would become a retailer and videotape the whole scenario when the lotto wise guyz come around, and i would videotape how you can check for pack value on any card.

                          and when i spent all my money, i would show thoz bozoz the video

                          and make them pay me to shut up and this conversaition would have never taken place

                              Of course I would keep playing!  The second win would be so much easier, having tons more money to spend to win it again!
