Definately. I don't play expecting to win big anyway. And besides, with all the money I would have I could play all I want.

    Yes I would still play the lottery, I would wait a bit before playing again,, and I think if I won once that I could do it again.

        I think every one here would play.  They like the lottery, that is why they are here.  Winning would just make it easier to induldge.  Of course, winning $100M plus might limit the available time to play individual games, but then you could afford to pick the same number for a year at a time.  One hundred grand, out of one hundred million wouldn't matter.

        Cheers

          I voted yes, because my "dream" plan is to hit the Jersey Cash 5 first and take in anywhere between $200-600K.  I would then use that money to start playing the big jackpots.  If I ever won a big one(millions), I would still play because I love the thrill of it.  Perhaps not as often though.

            if i won a big jackpot i would only play under 2 conditions, 1. the jackpot total is greater than the odds of winning, 2. $500 Million jackpot, i would drop a grand on it.

             

            but you guys have to be careful, you know winning the lottery might not be as nice as it seems, sure you have millions of dollars, but that just makes you a target. and you always hear about people who win the lottery then just blow it all on stupid stuff. 

             

            if i won, like really won a big jackpot i would not tell anyone for about 2 weeks then, claim the ticket get the money, then be out, i would leave my old life behind   family, friends everything. when you win the jackpot you have to disappear for awile

                Definitely yes, I play by subscription, so I would just continue my subscriptions to the Massachusetts lottery games. It is possible to win more than once, but for now, once would be nice.

                      Would you still play the lottery after the Big life changing win?

                      Personally what I would do is go out and purchase my own publishing co. and then create some crazy outlandish lottery systems on my new super computer and travel around the states playing all the different lotteries spending outrageous amounts of money to win lottery tickets to post as advertisements to help sell my lottery systems that most likely won't work, for outrageous prices (Steve Player) and live the good life off of others hopes and dreams. Just Kidding! Wink

                      This would depend on what the amount of the big win. If you would clear a cool Million or more after taxes there should be no point if you get yourself a good financial adviser and make some good investments (real estate).

                      I have always thought about real estate investments and owning my own five star restaurant.

                        do you guys ever wonder what winners are doing? like how they spend the money and/or if the money really made them happy?

                         

                        winning the lottery would be nice but you have to be smart about it

                          Most of the one's I've read about, that used the winning wisely, are living extremely happy.  None, that I know of went the extravacant route.  I always remember the guiy in NY who bought a lot of acerage and built a horse ranch; something his whole family enjoys.  Living the life he wanted on his own property. Doing only what he wants, when he wants.  Zero pressure.

                          Cheers

                            One of the problems with these "lose for life" online games is that the top prize is not enough to retire on. States like GA, KY, PA, and VA should still have a "classic" lotto.

                              I'd still play.  You'll see me still buying Powerballs and Mega Millions on my reality tv show starring me, Paris Hilton, and Tara Reid.  You'll also see me partying with them on Tara's show, Taradise.
