      $10-$15 avg. $20 is about max but I've gone to the thirties long time ago. It adds up if you play both MM PB, I play less  on the Mega though unles it gets ridiculous.

            Well , I played the fantasy 5 around my birthday last year in June because the pot was up kinda high, and I put 50 dollars on some special numbers that I play all the time no matter what and I got 4 out of 5 and won close to 7 thou, I almost hit, but the number that I didn't have was one number away , I'm not complaining. I am gonna play tonight for a week on fantasy five, but I wont put much on it, probably five dollars each day, Congrats to all the winners and good luck to those who are trying to win... Embarassed

                Was in Oregan last year and won $2500.00 at a casino.  Decided to play $100 on a powerball draw since it was over one hundred mil.  Did not even have 3 #s on one ticket.  God bless and good luck.

                  I usually play $5, but I "reinvest" my winnings.  So the most I have played at one time was like $200.  Good luck all!See Ya!

                    Not one penny!!!!! I did all QP's, I win more when I use my lotto software. I recently played about ~~~$20.00 an won $350.00 in the mega millions, mega plied. It's funny the less I play;using the software (lotto hat), the more often I win. Although, I have not won the big jackpot, I am happy with the small wins. Hyper

                      I've probably spent maximum 40 dollars on winning jackpots. Usually I spend between 15 and 25 dollars on every draw (which is twice a week).

                        I did spend £60 on the EuroMillions when it was £95,000,000 and surprise suprise I didn't win a penny. On the positive side I did have alot of extra toilet paper :D.

                          Why? Because it doesn't interest you at all?

                           

                          This poll may benefit some of us to know how much others are willing to spend for a single attempt, so we feel more comfortable making decisions about it.

                          If one of your tickets matched 5 or 6 numbers, you would be very comfortable with the decision you'd made.

                             When I hit the numbers or a scratch off for 10,000 or more I'll set aside 1,000 and play about 100 bucks a pop using the LP wheeling system and some of my own #s. With my own money it's one dollar per draw.

                              The most that I have ever spent on a single drawing was $40.00 for Powerball several years ago.  I won a little on that ticket (don't remember the amount).
