how many of you always get tickets, and how many of you wait for the jackpot to roll like 10 or 11 times?

          I have 1 ticket in for every draw... regardless of the jackpot.

          I have a rather simple and somewhat conservative strategy, 1 ticket per 100,000, got 3 for tonight ;-)

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

            I'm in a pool at work for Powerball and Louisiana Lotto. There are 6 of us in it and every payday, we put up $4/each and buy 2 Lotto and 3 Powerball tickets for the next 4 drawings. We've won a few small prizes here and there, but nothing big, yet.

            I play Louisiana Lotto myself, buying a ticket for every drawing. The prizes are smaller but the odds are better. With a minimum jackpot of $250,000, I could pay off all my debts, including my house, mortgage, etc. and be in a good position.

            As for Powerball, I only play it for myself if the jackpots get above $100 million. I figure with the odds the way they are, it isn't really worth it to play when it's less.

              I play for every Powerball draw.  Recently I have been playing $5 plus Powerplay.  One set of "birthday numbers...2 sets of carefully (pffffffffffffffffffffffffffft!) selected numbers and 2 sets of Quick Picks.

              So far my strategy has failed miserably.  Last week I hit rock bottom by not getting a single number!  So this week I've started to dig.

                        I play MM almost every drawing. PB usually only when it's 125 million or higher.

                          I play from the starting jackpot.  a $15 million annuity sounds great.

                            $7+ million lump sum sounds even better!
