Just curious to know; and it goes along the other post about how many tickets you purchase.

      1 draw at a time because if you get multiple draws and the numbers are bad you are going to be stuck with a ticket that will not win.  My example is when I went to Washington for Mega Millions and I played a 10 draw ticket twice and only hit a $3 win.  Lady luck ran out on me that time.-weshar75

        i do as many as i can possibly afford to play. lady luck will spit on you for one drawing or 52 drawings. i have lost on multidraw tickets between those numbers. i have also hit several times on the same ticket with the same numbers several times. it is nice when the powerball comes up a few times before your ticket expires.

        the best i have done on a multidraw and hit more than once was on a oregon mutlidraw ticket for powerball. i hit with the multiplier and won $70 and then 2 drawings later i hit the powerball alone.

        so i am a fan of the multidraw ticket. i got 5 of them in play now. 4 powerball tickets and one megamillion ticket all not from my state.

        MULTIDRAW RULES.

          I usually only buy 4 or 5 tickets, but each ticket has 5 lines.

              wow.

              I usually only get that wild when MegaMillion jackpot gets over $80M and Ohio RC5's gets over $300K and one drawing at a time.  Both games jackpots fit that profile right now.

                          I play the lottery like it's the stock market,  and I play the stock market like it's the lottery....

                           

                          I play Illinois and Wisconsin Lotteries.....

                           

                          Powerball is big so I will play it heavier, but the odds being so bad, I will restrict my playing of it.  (won $10,000 in Sept)

                          Played $10 last night.... 

                          Megabucks is up and the odds are 20x better to win so I will play much more of it than everything... When MB goes down I play nearly nothing... Played maybe $20 last night...

                          I play supercash every day....  ($2)

                          Badger 5 I play everyday, but move up on it when it gets bigger.  usually$1 per day and $1 per $10K of the jackpot...

                           Megamillions is the same as Powerball....

                           Illinois Littile lotto is probably my favorite game, I play $5 every day....

                          Illinois lotto, I like better than Wis Megabucks so I play $6 per drawing..... (won $1590.50) 2 years ago...

                              i wish i could afford to play this much on the lotto. $10,000 win on is great. the best i have done is $1000 on a local washington lotto. good luck and keep on winning.
