RJOH -- nice job in picking the #'s...
We play with a group of 10. We all toss in $5 per week and buy 25 tickets Tuesday night & 25 on Friday night. We used to play a 12 # spreadsheet and about once every 6 or so drawings we'd match 3 numbers...but I have to say that when we did hit 3 numbers then only once out of every 3 times did we hit for any money (the #'s were just spread "too thin"). So we dropped our spreadsheet down to 10 back in June. We've only hit 3 numbers once since then but at least we got $7 whole bucks out of it... (whoopee!).
There's another group of 10 at work that have been playing Big-Game/Megamillions for 10 years...they toss in $4 each...the best that they've done is to hit $150 on three different occasions....but they're still at it...I try to wish them luck every week & their team leader (a woman in her late 50's) always thinks that jinxes them....of course on the times that I don't wish them luck they don't win then either.
Such fun to think about winning the big one...it's worth $5 a week.
