    "To get rich beyond your wildest dream"

    Yep, that's why many people only play Power Ball and Mega Millions when the jackpot is over 100 million. And they bet the longshots at the horse and dog tracks even though they "knew" the favorite would win.

    Why waste your money on the pick 3 and 4 when for a buck we all can take a chance of changing our lives.  Who cares that the odds are 175 million to one?

    sorry but I live paycheck to paycheck.  $5000 and up is alot of money to me.  Maybe when that NBA contract comes, I sign a 4 major picture deal, I take over at Microsoft or something similar then I'll play the $200 million dollar jackpots but until then that occassional  $900 win or chance at $5000 helps me more than dreaming for pie in the sky dreams

      LMAO

       

      I was being facetious. 

       

      I agree; $5000 is a great hit and $200 for a 24-way box or $400 for a 12-way box is pretty good too.

            When people stop at the store and buy 10 or 20 auto picks on the Mega Millions, do they really expect to win the jackpot? Or are they just hoping they can beat the odds like the people they see on TV holding that huge cardboard check?

            The Mega Millions website says the overall chances of winning a prize are 1 in 40 so I guess we should feel lucky if we win 2 bucks on 20 auto picks.

            The multi-state lotteries were created so huge jackpots could be generated to entice people that don't usually play the lottery. More play means higher profits for the individual state lotteries.

            Maybe codmander will explain why he believes people only play the multi-state lotteries "To take money from the greedy state lottery system" when his method of play creates the opposite effect.
