I only powerplay 4 or 5 times a year.  I usually powerplay when the jackpots are kinda low.  Why wait until the jackpot is $100 million+ to powerplay when it doesn't affect the jackpot?  I would use that powerplay money for more lines of numbers.

How are you going to win if you don't play?

    I have been playing the powerplay lately because I know that if I don't hit it big but I do get a prize I like the idea of getting the most money available for that prize.

      i really don't power play.  i think it's not worth it to spend $2 and not win when i can spend $1 and not win.

      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.

          Here here, DoctorEw.  I also do not Powerplay simply because I do not win enough times.

          I buy PowerPlay below $100 million. I won $20 last night (6/8).

            I never buy powerplay nor would I buy a Mega like equivent. I would only buy it if it doubled the jackpot.

              i would rather play two sets of my own numbers for two bucks because thats an extra chance to win then try to double a prize with the way the odds are.......

                I'll Power Up when I feel like it. I might this Saturday. Is it just me, or is 2x being drawn more often?

                  I would rather spend $2 for 2 tickets and double my chances.
