Just wait until the jackpot reaches over $250 million.  Then buy 1 ticket.  That is how all the jackpots are won.

    There have been many,many jackpots of less than $250 million won.If you don't play you can't win,no matter what the size of the jackpot is.

      Correction: Most jackpots are won before reaching $250 millions. 

      If you wait for the jackpot to reach that amount before buying a ticket, you'll probably only be buy a ticket once or twice a year.

        Right, and the other thing is that there's a better chance of having to split it with someone else.

            Not me. I play whenever. I would take any of the jackpot sizes. And like the others have said, it doesn't make it to $250 million that often, so that isn't how all the jackpots are won.

              I don't play for the jackpot alone. I play powerball hoping to match 5/6. I would be a very happy man.

                My wife does the same thing with scratch offs.She'll be playing a ticket that has a $50,000 top prize and say "I sure wish I could hit $5,000".To me that doesn't make sense.You should wish for the top prize...and settle for the 2nd prize,don't wish for the 2nd prize when 1st prize is worth much,much more.Crazy

                  Well I figure I have slightly better chances at the 5/6. I would love to get the JP though

                        Why wait until the jackpot reaches $60 million if you'd be happy winning a smaller prize?You could still win a smaller prize when the jackpot is only $12 million.

                            Hell, I'd take $5.
