    Usually I play $2 a drawing under 100 mill prize.  for over $100 mill, I spend $3.  If the jackpot is way up there and close to a certain record, I will spend $100

      WE HAD A SLOW LOTTO GAME THSAT THEY DID A PROMOTION FOR,  if you bought a 25 game maxi pick, you got an extra entry free thus halving hte cost, ., also there was some car promotion as well, this was every week for a whole month.


      well a buddy and i decided we would go haslves and bought like 4 25 game picks in the 1st week, asdn let the winnings roll over every week.


      so it was 8 x25 game  plays in 1st week, i think we won enough to roll over every week for the month , but by end of the month all money was gone

      2014 = -1016; 2015= -1409; 2016  = -1171; 2017 = ?  TOT =  -3596

      keno historic = -2291 ; 2015= -603; 2016= -424; 2017 = ? TOT = - 3318

        One day last Oct, I put $64 on my Virginia pick3 pet number. That was the most ever for me on pick3.  Turned out that I was one day too soon. But I did hit it the next night for $10K.

        Also last Dec as the NC cash5 jackpot rose toward half a mil, I spent $100, 125 & 135.00 on 3 straight nights. I was hesitant to throw away the previous nights numbers because I was getting really close to hitting.

        It finally topped out at $731K. Anyway, I was glad that somebody, anybody, finally hit the doggone thing.

          I used to be a lottery junky...I would play $40-$60 when the jackpot was rolling high.  Now that I am traveling so much with my work, I just make sure that I have a play in for the next drawing (preplay).  So now I usually just have one dollar per draw working for me.  If I happen to be passing through a state where either the next Mega or PB drawing is significant (anything over $50 million annuitized jackpot), I'll buy an extra ticket or three!  Of course, I also think that the minimum jackpot amount for either lottery is significant...hell, I don't think anyone on this board thinks $7 milliion is not a significant sum of money and yes I know it's all about the odds of winning more so than the jackpot amount as to why certain people don't or won't get excited about playing or playing more until the jackpot does reach a certain amount.  Anyway, truckers have been doing well with the lottery as of late...here's hoping the same happens for me.  And yes, when I win, I will claim the prize publicly and mention LP...how's that?!

          Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

          The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

              I think 5 tickets per drawing is fine,specially when you know one banker number.

              More tickets may be required to get a small prize without knowing the banker number,but tickets less than 30 are the most I can afford.Otherwise,I keep a prize ratio less than 50%,ha!
