A group of friends from my local pub want me to join them in buying in for Delaware's unusually high (cough) jackpot of $126K all cash Multi-Win Lotto. It is a computerized game, and we all know about how Delaware's lottery is in question. What should I do?

      I was contemplating how to play PB, I mean: I play 10 games a drawing where I pick my own numbers, but 70% of the winners are quick-picks, so I was thinking 'Gee, maybe 70% of my games should be quick-picks, and 30% I will pick the numbers ?

       

      Get in the group, and maybe they will get into YOUR group, which would give you more capital to play the games you want to play.

      I WISH I had about $80 to spend on every drawing....

        Just buy the tickets. Even if the lottery is computerized, you still can't win if you don't play and still don't know if there will be a winner.

          Ultimately I opted not to buy into this computerized disaster. Those that did didn't even break even.

              That was a good decision.

              Delaware is a Powerball state, so why not just go in on a Powerball pool if you need to play with other people?

              (I personally avoid pools in the first place, so my ultimate advice would be to spend whatever money you would put into the pool on your own tickets.)

               

              Check the State Lottery Report Card
              What grade did your lottery earn?
