I would still play just for fun.  I would buy a roll of scratch offs and have fun.  (Don't fret all of you Instant game haters I would play the numbers too.)

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

      Winning lotto 5 would be awesome.  Depending on how much I won I would save most of it or give some to a good cause.

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

        It would depend on how much a Big Life Changing Win is.

          >100,000,000 cash value, probably not

          anything less and absolutely!

          Playing more than one ticket per game is betting against yourself.

            A major lotto - like millions of dollars... I would quit playing that particular one if I won.  What are the chances on winning more than 1 major jackpot.  LOL

            BUT... I think I would invest some of the money to hire a number/math programmer to find the patterns/formulas for pick 3 and 4.  Kinda of like Steve Player.  If all worked well with it, I would build an internet business around the actual program.

              I think if I hit for a big one I would continue to chase the other jackpots as long as the games are available.

                After hitting "The Big One", I would put more money in Pick 3 than any other game.  I am almost certain that's what I'd do.

                      Sure, I would continuing playing the lottery, but I wouldn't be as anxious because the demand would not be as great. I have read about a couple of lottery winners who kept playing (time line wasn't given) and they HIT AGAIN --also known as 'lightning striking twice!' 

                      Anything is possible because the strangest things have happened to people who just weren't prepared for the unexpected...hitting a lottery twice.  We don't have crystal balls; we can't predict the future...but we can only play, hope, and most importantly, be patient and consistent in our playing. 

                      How many times have we heard about some people who played their numbers diligently, but forgot to play or through some unfortunate circumstance didn't play their numbers -- and their numbers came out?

                      Finally, this is why I always play my Social Security number (which hasn't come out yet), plus a set of Quick Picks. I've become disappointed because I felt my Social should have come out, but quite frankly, I'm afraid not to play it!



                      See Ya!-- Bye, bye!  When you win, may you glow as brightly as theSun Smiley

                          Irregardless of a big win, large jackpots would attrack me like a moth to flame.

                          And to those thinking of a harem, bad relationships are far more expensive then playing in the lottery.

                            Well, I matched 4 of 5 twice in the same week in TN Lotto 5.  I guess you would call that winning (sorta).  It paid 200 bucks both times and of course I still play.  I voted No, but that's only if I hit the big one (i.e $10 million plus jackpot).

                              I voted Yes. Because with all my family members and the IRS, I think I'd still need to cover my bases in this lifetime.
