Was just wondering how much everyone spends on tickets.  Myself ill buy $5 worth on my state lottery (Texas) when ever its over 50 million, and $10 on mega millions when ever its over 100 million.  Then there is always the random ticket buying whenever i buy gas and have some spare change.

    Here is mine,

    Powerball:

    $1 for JP between $10-25 million. $2 for JP between $25-45 million. $3 for JP between $45-60 million.  $5 for JP $60+ million. 

    Lotto 5:

    $1 for less than $100,000, $2 for JP between $100,000-200,000. $3 for JP between $200,000-300,000. $5 for $500,000+.  $10 for jp more than 1 million.

    Complex huh?

      My spending used to be on the low side $1-$2 week, but it's climbed to around $5 to $10 a week.

      Tonight I spent $5 on CT tickets:

      $2 Cash 5

      $2 Powerball

      $0.50 each on a straight Pick 3 & 4

      When the Mega Millions jackpot was just at $205 million I spent $5 and $10 alternately for the drawings above $100 million.
