Before I picked my numbers/combinations for this drawing, I decided to pick 46 lines and play every mega ball. After I came up with lines and added the mega balls, I changed my mind and only played the first 20 lines. I had 3 of the winning numbers with the winning mega ball on line 30. Had I played all 46 lines or the first thirty lines I would have won some money instead of losing $20. I won't make the same mistake this time even if it costs me $44.
This is the first time I've had a chance to play for a lottery jackpot of $300M+ without making a road trip, so I'm ahead $20 for gas to travel to another state for tickets and I intend to play as if I had to waste 4 hours driving to Indiana for PowerBall tickets or as I did in the old days drive to Michigan to play the BigGame.
