Im a poor college student and can only afford to buy a few tickets a week. Maybe 4 mega millions a week and 4 texas lotto tickets if the jackpot is over 20 mil.

How much do you play? Obviously, if you consider this info private then you can ignore this post.

    If you're a poor college student, I suggest to buy $1 every drawing when the prize is over $100,000,000.

      Im not really that poor. I dont play with any money that should be going to something more important. Ill usually have 1 less drink at the bar and buy a few tickets with the money or something like that.

          I'm retired on a somewhat limited income, so I also have to watch my dollars.  I don't do much else recreation-wise, so I budget $300 a year to lottery.  When I do buy tickets, it is usually five dollars at a time.  I'll usually buy tickets if MM is over $50.  If it isn't, but the state lottery is over $7 or so, I'll buy those.  I never buy both the same week.  And sometimes I skip even if the jackpot is over the amounts indicated if I'm not going to a store that sells tickets for other reasons that week.

          I just checked, and I've spent $78 so far on lottery since January 1, so I'm running just about right on budget.  If they'd had lottery when I was in college, I wouldn't have played at all, as I was MUCH poorer then!

            I'm a POOR real estate broker. Hard for some folks to believe that, but we end up paying more out than me make a lot of the times. I only play when I close on a house, guess I feel lucky then. I only buy one ticket. When the powerball comes to NC guess I will buy one powerball and one scratch.

              I play almost every day. Cash 3, Mega Millions, and on occassions I will play Fantasy 5, Cash 4 and Lotto South. On an average I would say I will spend about $90 buck a week on lottery. Sometimes it pays off and sometimes it don't, but when it does, it be pretty.

                I've yet to pay money for a ticket.  Given my feeble attempts at prediction so far, the money was well kept.

                      I play Pick5 regularly and rarely Pick3&4.

                      Almost never MM, nor Lotto.

                          Hi!
                          I suggest you should play 1-$2 for each drawing for good! Luck is luck!

                          This is my chart:

                          18M - 50M:     $1/drawing
                          50M - 80M :     2$/drawing
                          80M- 150M:     3$/drawing
                          150M - 200M: 4-$5/drawing
                          200M -250M:   5-$6/drawimg
                          300M:             $10/drawing
                          400M:             $10/drawing
                          500M:             $20/drawing
