    I always get 2 tickets powerplayed. One quick pick and one of my own picks.

    When the jackpot is very high I might get 5 lines.

            Usually just $2 (regular number set with powerplay) but occasionally a quickpick with powerplay.  Rarely go over $5 per drawing.

              Lottomike, my answer is :

              Not enough , because I haven't won yet   Mad

               

              Just kidding----  I usually play $20 on the Powerball ( I ALWAYS select PowerPlay ) but I don't play it every draw.

              Mega is usually $10 and sometimes more when it gets North of $50 mil.

                I usually play every drawing.  Depending on the Jackpot I play $2-$4 under $100 Million.  $3-$5 between $100 Million and $200 Million and when it hits $300 million I usually play around $10 just for fun.  You gotta love the cashier's attitude when it gets that high. 

                How are you going to win if you don't play?

                  Still holding to $2 a game, only now playing my own line instead of one QP with the powerplay.

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

                    My vote is nothing LOTTOMIKE. I would spend on average $0 per draw. I would tell my dad if Mega Millions hits $300 million or more to buy some MM tickets in hopes of winning the jackpot.

                      Even if I buy some Mega Millions, Powerball, or California Super Lotto Plus tickets, I just have no luck at all.

                        Like Just6ntlc, I don't spend any money on PB or MM.  Even when I'm in an area where these tickets are sold, I feel that the odds are too great.  I mean, if I can't win Florida Lotto, Florida MegaMoney or a raffle game with much better odds, why would I want to buy a ticket for a game with 1 in 140 million odds?

                          Because, you just never know....

                          Those might be your "lucky" games and the FL games may not...
